Diddy Ranked At Top of Forbes List of Richest Hip-Hop Artists

Sean "Diddy" Combs

Rapper, dancer, producer, clothing designer – now Sean “Diddy” Combs can add to that list, hip-hop’s wealthiest artist.  Forbes magazine just placed Diddy at the top of that list, after taking into consideration the income he receives from his brands, Bad Boy Worldwide, Sean Jean and Ciroc vodka.

Forbes reports Diddy’s earnings at $475,000,000.  Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter came in second with $450,000,000 in earning.  Andre “Dr. Dre” Young came in third at $125,000,000 million and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Bryan “Birdman” Williams tied for fourth, with both having earnings listed at $100 million.

According to Forbes, the list was calculated by evaluating current holdings, along with past earnings and financials.

The Heat Magazine’s own radio show, ‘The Heat’, which is broadcast on the Global Rhythmz Radio Network via Blogtalk Radio on Saturdays from 9-11 p.m. EST will discuss this topic on its upcoming show – whether artists are selling out their trade in order to diversify their portfolios and add to their bank accounts.  Make sure to tune in at 9 p.m. EST Saturday when The Heat Magazine’s Asst. Editor-in-Chief, Arlene, and Special Correspondent, TayloreB, and The Heat radio’s producer, Mr. International, will weigh in on this topic.  Visit G Radio’s website HERE.
