Diddy tops Forbes’ hip hop rich list

By | Published on Thursday 26 September 2013


Ah brilliant, Forbes has made another of its rolling rich lists, this one a ranking of statistical ‘Cash Kings’, aka 2013’s 20 highest paid hip-hop artists.

Top is P Diddy, who has his many brands – like the Sean John clothing line and Bad Boy label – as opposed to his raps to thank for a cool $50 million mint made over the past twelve months. Jay ‘no hyphen’ Z dogs him with $43 million, whilst, “vaulting” in at fifth place, it’s Kanye West. Alas, he might’ve vaulted higher if only maniacal bravado was quantifiable.

Have a look at the list, which also names Dr Dre, Nicki Minaj and Kendrick Lamar, at this link.
