Puff Daddy Beats Jay-Z For World’s Richest Hip-hop Artist

American rapper Jay Z’s fortunes jumped 30 percent last year to give him an estimated net worth of 810 million dollars, but it was not enough to dethrone Sean Diddy Combs from the top of Forbes annual list on Wednesday of the world’s wealthiest hip hop artists.

Combs retained his No. 1 spot with an estimated net worth of 820 million dollars, helped by his lucrative deals with Ciroc Vodka, and his Sean John clothing line, Forbes said. But rapper and producer Jay Z moved into second place with 810 million dollars thanks largely to a 200 million dollars investment in his Tidal music streaming service from wireless carrier Sprint in January. The company is now said to be worth more than 10 times his initial investment.

The top 5 was rounded out by Dr. Dre ($740 million), rapper and Cash Money Records co-owner Bryan “Birdman” Williams ($110 million), and Canadian rapper Drake with an estimated 90 million dollars.
