Diddy the mouth breather takes the top spot for Forbes annual Hip Hop’s wealthiest artist for 2014, they are saying that he is close to the Billion dollar mark with an increase of $120 Million… I guess with Revolt T.V. that added more to his stock…. Check out the rest of the list inside.
2. Andre “Dr. Dre” Young ($550 million)
The California-bred superproducer leapfrogs Jay Z on this year’s list, fueled by the runaway success of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, which he cofounded with record executive Jimmy Iovine in 2008.
3. Shawn “Jay Z” Carter ($520 million)
Megadeals like his $204 million Rocawear sale in 2007 and his $150 million pact with Live Nation in 2008 provide Jay Z’s fortune with firm footing. But the bulk of its growth this year comes from new ventures.
4. Bryan “Birdman” Williams ($160 million)
Birdman’s number would be over $300 million if he didn’t share his fortune with brother Ronald “Slim” Williams, with whom he cofounded Cash Money Records two decades ago.
5. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson ($140 million)
One of the most successful rappers of the past decade, 50 actually owes most of his fortune to his $100 million haul from the sale of VitaminWater in 2007.
Forbes has already been proven to be a liar. Diddy even said their figures were wrong. So I will take this with a grain of salt.
