Diddy Is The Richest Rapper Alive!
A list of the richest rap stars in the world has just been released by US business magazine, Forbes. Sean Combs, aka P. Diddy, shocked many by coming up at the top of the list, having a personal fortune worth around $550m (£345m). His earnings have come from his record label, clothing lines and his stakes in vodka company, Ciroc...
Jay-Z came second place, with an estimated fortune of $460m (£288m). In third place was Dr. Dre, who boasts a personal piggy bank to the value of around $260m (£163m). However, a large bulk of Dr. Dre’s money is fairly new, having been made from his joint company with Interscope chief Jimmy Iovine, Beats Electronics.
Coming in fourth and fifth place were Birdman and 50 Cent, with Baby being worth $125 million (£78m) and Fiddy ranking at around $110m (£69m).
