Diddy creeps closer to becoming the first billionaire in the hip hop industry as he tops the newly released ‘Forbes Five’ list.
Making money and hip hop have become two in the same over the years seeing how money is the subject of your choice for most rappers on the mainstream scene these days. Every year Forbes documents who has the highest net worth in the rap game with their exclusive ‘Forbes Five’ list.
The list points out the 5 rappers with the highest net worth, and 2012 proves that Diddy may actually be the first rapper to turn billionaire. Sean Diddy Combs topped the list with a net worth of $550 million, a number that should see a massive increase during 2013 when Diddy launches his Revolt cable channel.
Jay-Z follows relatively close at $460 million, who is followed by a distant third place Dr. Dre worth $270 million. The number four slot goes to Bryan Birdman Williams with a net worth of $125 million, and 50 Cent rounds out the exclusive list with $110 million to his name.
