Diddy Tops Forbes’ Wealthiest Hip-Hop Artists of 2013 List

Ciroc is in the building! Yeah, Ciroc, not the ROC.

Diddy has topped Forbes’ Wealthiest Hip-Hop Artists of 2013 and his life has truly become all about the Benjamins! He has a net worth of $580 million, but most of that dough doesn’t come from Diddy’s successful rap and producing career.

Diddy struck a deal to help develop the Ciroc vodka brand for 50% of the profits and now Puffy is swimming in a pool of money, Scrooge McDuck style. He gets an annual eight figure payout from Ciroc.

Jay-Z came in on the list at No. 2 with a fortune estimated at $475 million after selling RocaWear and profits greatly from ventures like the Brooklyn Nets, the actual Barclays Center and Carol’s Daughter haircare products.

Dr. Dre took the No.3 spot on the list with approximately $350 million thanks to his headphone empire. Birdman is the No.4 richest hip-hop mogul as his YMCMB label is  worth $150 million.

Last, but certainly not least, especially in his eyes, is 50 Cent. He was paid an exorbitant sum when Vitamin Water was sold to Coca Cola and it’s estimated his fortune values at about $100 million. When Forbes told Fiddy how much he was estimated to be worth he replied simply, “That’s cool.” Upon further prodding, Curtis Jackson said, “Oh, you want me to tell you an exact number? I’ve got way more.”

Congrats to Diddy! We think he should celebrate with a jeffrey and a stroke of the furry wall.
