Forbes put out their annual “Forbes Five: Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists” list with some familiar names and a new one.
Diddy topped the list with an estimated net worth of $750-million for his stakes in Ciroc vodka, Revolt network, Aquahydrate alkaline water and SeanJohn clothing.
Dr. Dre came in at No. 2 with $710-millon much of which came with the sale of his Beats by Dre headphones brand to Apple. Last year’s N.W.A. biopic also reeled in a nice amount of revenue. In addition he also has stocks in Apple and a plethora of real estate in Southern California.
Jay-Z cruised in at No. 3 with $610-millon for his TIDAL streaming service that has over 3-million subscribers and also a slew of other business ventures including D’usse and Ace of Spades champagne.
At No. 4 was Bryan “Birdman” Williams with $110-million for the success of multiplatinum selling artists, Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj. Put some “respeck” on that.
The final and newest member of the list at No. 5 is OVO head-honcho, Drake with $60-million. The music sales definitely helped, but Drizzy owes most of it to touring and partnerships with Jordan, Apple and Sprite.
50 Cent’s bankruptcy struggles kept him off the list this year.

Kanye West already has one of the most successful albums of the year with ‘The Life Of Pablo,’ and he is looking to follow the success with a tour.
He teased ‘The Life Of Pablo’ tour on Steve Harvey’s show Tuesday saying he could be hitting the road in September.
“My tour game is unprecedented,” he bragged to Harvey. “So we’re going to go out in September I believe, and we’re just working on some of the ideas right now.”
I’m excited to see the kind of creativity he will exude for the tour, from the merch to the stage design.
The tour is only in the planning stages, so there are no dates out or opening acts on the bill as of now. Although, it is safe to assume he will probably take his artist Desiigner on tour with him after the success “Panda” has had.
Keep it locked with us and we will share any further developments.
