Who Are Hip-Hop's Wealthiest Artists??

| Filed under: Music MinuteDiddyJay ZEminem


Think you know who Hip-Hop's wealthiest artists are?

Some may guess Jay-Z with his huge record sales, pricey concert tickets, clothing line, and book sales, but surprise surprise! The wealthiest artist in Hip-Hop isn't Jay…

It's Sean "Diddy" Combs with estimated earnings of $475 million.

With his Sean John clothing line, Bad Boy Worldwide record label, and his Ciroc vodka, Diddy is definitely bringing in the big bucks.

But don't fret, Jay-Z fans. The rapper hit the number two spot with his earnings of $450 million.


Dr. Dre is the third wealthiest Hip-Hop artist, making $125 million from his record sales, along with sales from his proteges Eminem and 50 Cent. The guy obviously knows how to make a star.

Speaking of which, 50 Cent rounds out the top five, tying with Cash Money Records co-founder Bryan "Birdman" Williams, with $100 million. He reaped a nine-figure paycheck from the sale of Vitamin Water to Coca-Cola. Dayum!!!

Were U surprised by the list??

    the funny part is that, everyone will think these two top guys are worth almost half a billion but the tax man-uncle sam- gets half so diddy gets to keep like $235 and thats still before all the people around him that he has to pay, publicists, #
    3-5 babby mommas taking over 175k per month not to mention all the people who work tirelessly for these moguls that need to all collect their salaries. Re: BodyCake.com – and btw diddy has always surpassed jay z, jay z was always jealous of diddy and wanted to be like diddy and big on the cover of fortune. and dont you forget it. diddy is the og black mogul, after oprah.
