Bread Winners: Diddy & Jay-Z lead Forbes top five most wealthy Hip-Hop artists of 2017

BAGS ON BAGS ON BAGS…

 

Though he prematurely dubbed himself Hip-Hop’s first true billionaire a few months back, Sean “Diddy” Combs’ hefty accounts did in fact earn him the number one slot on Forbes’ most wealthy Hip-Hop honcho lineup of 2017…

For the umpteenth time in a row, the 47-year-old overseer of Bad Boy Records and his $820 million net worth lords above all other rap figures thanks to his lucrative deal with Ciroc Vodka and his major investments in Revolt TV.

Close on the “Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems” rhymer’s polished heels is “99 Problems” rapper, Jay-Z whose already over-stuffed pockets enjoyed a 30% increase this year… Allowing him to touch an astonishing $810 million in total cash flow…

In January, Beyonce’s baby daddy’s good fortune turned even better following a $200 million investment blessing from Sprint in his music streaming service, Tidal, which reportedly skyrocketed the company’s value to $600 mill– 10 times what he paid for the service in 2015…

BLESS UP…

Not too far behind Puffy and HOV in the big bags race is West Coast legend, Dr. Dre who’s $740 million net worth makes him this year’s third most affluent Hip-Hop influencer.

Luckily for the Compton bred “Chronic” creator, his fruitful Beats-Apple deal continues to clutter his coffers with hella coin and keeps him comfy-cozy in the $40 million 14,000 sq. foot L.A. mansion he purchased shortly after the business agreement was announced…

JACKPOT…
Pulling the cash-heavy caboose is none other than Hip-Hop’s most handrubbingest boss, Birdman, with an impressive $110 million in assets… trailed by his Canadian Young Money Cash Money Tecords signee, Drake, whose $90 Ms gives him bragging rights as the fifth most balling boomer of the year..

NOT BAD AT ALL, GUYS…

Combined, the highly-respected and even more highly paid prominent men of the mic boast a net worth total of $2.57 billion…

YESSSSSSS BREAD…
