As usual...if not Jay Z, then Diddy or Dr. Dre.......
For years, our list of hip-hop’s wealthiest artists has been composed of the same five figures—Birdman, Diddy, Dr. Dre, Jay Z and 50 Cent. But the latter spent his $100 million Vitaminwater windfall faster than we thought, and last summer’s bankruptcy filing knocked him off the list. Enter Drake—flush with cash from touring, music and deals with the likes of Nike NKE -0.12%, Sprite and Apple—at No. 5, with a net worth of $60 million.Still, it could take decades for Drake to ascend to the heights occupied by this year’s king: Diddy, who boasts a staggering fortune of $750 million, up slightly from last year.
That’s pretty much my objective every year, Drake once said of having his financial achievements acknowledged by FORBES. Other than making good music.
See the top five below..
Diddy - $750million
Dr. Dre - $710million
Jay Z - $610million
Birdman - $110million
Drake - $60million
