When it comes to the wealthiest hip-hop artist, according to Forbes, and you guessed Jay Z, 50 Cent, or Dr. Dre, you would be close, but wrong.
According to Forbes, Diddy is the wealthiest hip-hop artist and is worth $580 million dollars and pulled in $50 million in the past year. That is a whole lot of green.
Dr. Dre was number 2 worth $350 million and made $40 million last year.
Birdman is worth $150 million to put him at number 3.
50 Cent aka Curtis Jackson is worth $125 million.
