Diddy has topped Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s richest rappers.
The hip-hop mogul has an estimated wealth of $475 million thanks to his Jay-Z, who was in second place with a fortune of $450m, can console himself with the knowledge that he was the highest earning hip-hop star of 2010. He made $63m last year, more than double what Diddy pocketed.
Jay’s millions come from album and tour sales, his Dr. Dre was third on the list of wealthy hip-hop acts with $125m. In joint fourth place was50 Centand Birdman, who are both said to be worth a cool $100m.
The annual Forbes list only includes performers, which is why Def Jam mogul Russell Simmons, thought to be worth $340m, didn’t place.
