Some things don’t change. Forbesreleased its annual list of highest paid hip-hop figures, and Diddy is still the No. 1 mogul with a net worth of $735 million. The man born Sean Combs is still standing strong atop of an empire that includes a TV station, a clothing line, Ciroc and an infamous record label, among others.
Dr. Dre is gaining up on Diddy, though. Although the Beats Music streaming service is underperforming, the brand is still standing strong. After his claim of being hip-hop’s first billionaire turned out to be false (thanks taxes), Dr. Dre stands at $700 million.
Jay Z is No. 3 with $550 million, and that could change quickly depending on if TIDAL picks up ground. 50 Cent and Birdman follows with $155 million and $150 million, respectively.
Hip-hop will have its first billionaire soon enough. But for now, Diddy is the king with nine figures.
