Diddy Is Still The Richest Rapper On The Planet

Screen Shot

The vodka, fashion and media mogul, who keeps a home on Star Island, topped Forbes' list of 2017's wealthiest rappers released Wednesday. The rapper only needs $180 million to be a billionaire, and if he continues going at the pace that he's at now, he'll probably be there in less than five years.

Jay-Z's fortune has jumped 30% giving him an estimated net worth of $810 million, according to Forbes' hip-hop rich list - which probably explains that $120 million bullet-proof mansion.

He also has a champagne brand, Armand de Brignac, and owns Roc Nation. That all comes courtesy of deals with Diageo's Ciroc, his stake in the TV network Revolt and last year's Bad Boy Reunion Tour, which brought together the top acts on the Bad Boy Entertainment label.

Net worth? A cool $820 million, an increase from last year's $750 million.


P. Diddy is doing great for himself, that is for sure! Dre's biggest pay day was back in 2014 when Apple purchased Beats by Dre for a cool $3 billion.

The other three top-five slots were held by Dr. Dre at $740 million, Birdman at $110 million and Drake with $90 million.

Finishing fifth is Aubrey "Drake" Graham, whose "Views" world tour raked in nearly $1 million per night.
