Diddy Is Hip-Hop's Richest Artist This Year

Diddy Is Hip-Hop's Richest Artist This Year

Rappers love to talk about money—how much they earn, how much they spend, how much they're worth.

According to Forbes, Diddy can brag more than anyone else. The rapper/mogul is number one on this year's Forbes Five, which ranks hip-hop's richest artists each year, with a net worth of $580 million. Much of his wealth comes from non-musical ventures—namely his deal with Ciroc—which nets him eight-figure payouts, and an extra nine-figure sum if Ciroc is sold. 

Diddy practically lives atop this Forbes list. He topped it last year with a net worth of $550 million.

Jay-Z ranked second on this year's list with a net worth of $475 million; Dr. Dre ranked third with a net worth of $350 million.
