Diddy Tops Forbes 2012 Hip-Hop List

It’s deja vu all over again. Coming in at number one on Forbes richest hip-hop artist list is baddest boy of ‘em all, Sean “Diddy” Combs. The publication estimates Diddy net worth at $550 million. Rounding out the top three are Jay-Z and Dr. Dre.

1. Sean

    Diddy opening a gap on Jay

  • Mr. G

    He told you he wont stop! BadBoy baby! Take that take that!

  • Word

    Birdman stunts the most out of all these guys, talks the most shit, but look at that gap between 3 and 4! Dre has over 150million more dollars than him last year while talking significantly less shit. Birdman needs to shut the fuck up. Dont get me wrong, hes rich, way richer than me, and I would love have even 5% of his money, but when it comes to the heavy hitters of hip hop he aint shit really. Diddy made about quadruple more!

    #Respect. I think that’s their total estimated net worth, though, as opposed to last year’s earnings.

  • BBGUN

    Are you sure this is just a year or total earnings?
    I know last year jay was on top with like 65 Mil. That seems like a bit much for a year.

  • http://rapradar Hiphop is Dead

    Whats the list for who rapes there artist for money- from the most to the least…..?

  • Word

    But anywho, how is Diddy raking in all that money? Circoc isnt really “his” drink but I know he gets a cut of the profits but other than that what was the major money move he made last year? Not tryna hate or nuffin. I think I mightve missed it. Sean John and his label I guess.

    His new station (although i dont see viewership being that high) will probably get him on top of the list again, and probably a new Ciroc flavor. Diddy gonna be on top this list again next year.

    “The publication estimates Diddy raked in $550 million last year.”

    No way he made that last year. That will be his total worth.

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    Diddy aka Career Killer is getting that $$$.

  • A1FBG

    It’s net worth not what they made last year Amaya

  • Maize

    that is how much they are worth not what they made SMH

  • BBGUN

    Sorry amaya but your fired. get your facts right. Wheres B.Dot.

  • ThatJosh

    Yeah Biggie would be number one, Then Jay-Z, Then Eminem, Then Kendrick, Then J. Cole….. Fuck Your Opinion!

  • Word

    @BBGUN Yeah I think this is total networth cuz you right I do remember them saying Jay made 65mil in one year. If you click the deja vu link it has similar numbers in it.

    If you click that deja vu link and compare the numbers, the difference is how much they made this year I guess? Nah that doesnt make sense cuz Jay has 460 for last year and 450 this year. I doubt he lost cash.

    But the Forbes website says “Net Worth” so roll with that.

  • ThirdParty

    “The publication estimates Diddy raked in $550 million last year.”

    ^^^ absolutely incorrect. that’s his estimated net worth, not his income from last year. You should be more attentive to details.

  • Word

    Lmao what kind of journalism is RR promoting with these bloggers? Love this site tho. I actually find yall fuck ups amusing.

  • nerdywilliams

    2. Shawn

  • Shade

    What the fuck does Diddy and Fifty do to make so much money coz it sure ain’t music O.o

  • ATL_XL

    This should read total net worth. Diddy is worth $550 million total net worth. Not what they made last year. Just go to celebritynetworth you can see them all

  • Peekay

    can’t stand him

  • Black Shady

    its their NET WORTH….

    niggas got money!!! but damn I was one of those thinking 50 was top 3…with at least 250MILLI lol

  • DJAR

    Who said 50 fell off? Haha

  • County Of Kings

    the crazy shit is that diddy and dre dont seem to be working very hard. meaning their money is making money. u see jayz, baby and even 50 out there working hard all the time.

    funny shit is i bet u baby spent more money than he made this year playboi (insert baby hand rubbs)

  • http://twitter.com/och121 loch121

    follow http://twitter.com/loch121

  • Jack

    Fifty lost atleast 100 million in net worth but once again he invested in many many things including movie studio and headphones so I don’t think 50 fell off at all

  • Realniggashit

    Congrats to all them brother making money

  • County Of Kings

    @ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    u mean career creator. stop hating that man makes stars out of fuckin losers. u see shyne wants back in again. i suppose gdep confessing to murder is also diddy fault too right smh

  • mac DIESEL’s Assistant

    DAMN MY BOSS mac DIESAL IS WORTH 300 DOLLARS, A LINTBALL AND A PACK OF CREST TOOTHPASTE!!

    HA!!!

    DONT YOU HATE ON OUR OPINION!!!!!

  • Your mother’s “friend”

    @County of Kings true story niggas forget that all those artists that Diddy allegedly “raped” were bums before he made them stars, it’s not like they had a buzz or anyone was checking for them they were all nobodies, The lox, Mase, Total, 112, Craig Mack, Loon hell even Biggie. Now that i think about it i applaud Diddy for keeping the publishing he deserved it

  • AFRICANBOY

    3 east coast niggaz, 1 west coast nigga and 1 down south nigga… NY wins!!!!

  • casper21

    All this shows you is that Diddy and Jay invest their money in a lot of different things, a lot of which the public don’t even know about, and they rape their artists heavily. The surprising thing is the Em is never on these lists of net worth, I can see him not being on lists of years top earners because although his records sell, he doesn’t tour heavily anymore. But you’d think someone who has sold almost 100 million albums worldwide, owns a few businesses, had a popular clothing line for a few years, runs his own label, and gets 7 figure contracts for any endorsement he agrees to would have a significant net worth. Even Master P is probably up there, in the late 90s early 00′s his estimated net worth was somewhere in the 500-600 million dollar range. I don’t doubt that a good chunk of that is gone, but something tells me his actual net worth ranks pretty high up there.

    I actually don’t really believe these lists fully, they would require full disclosure of a lot of documents and figures that these artists probably aren’t quick to give up, hence the ESTIMATED net worth.

  • T.O.S

    where is officer ross :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • mac DIESEL

    DAMN, JAY AND PUFF AIN’T FUCKIN’ AROUND!!!!

  • lilrizq

  • 450Flame

  • The fucker of your Mother

    Forbes is so full of shit with this list. Check this out from Dec. 2011, 50 was worth 216mil and now all of a sudden he’s down to 110mil. they are the shitties educated guessers of counting other peoples money. Just remember earlier in the year they said he was worth a 100mill. Make up your mind Forbes

  • jay

    50 has invested a lot off money, compared to his net-worth 2008-2011.
    but he’s busy and still on the giond. SK, SMS audio (his company) and the 200 mill movie deal.

    jay-z and diddy are true legends and hustlers in the game.

  • TheCreator

    You lot do know that all these numbers are a prediction of what their total value of all their assets added together are and not their money. Secondly 50 cent got way more money, hes a private partner and investor in many companies where he can’t says how much he makes.

  • streetsweeper

    what ever happened to Rick-Ross? with a mouth like that one would expect to see him on this list?!!??

  • Faust

    This is not total earnings, you stupid niggers. It’s net worth.

    Net worth= (total assets) – (total liabilities)

    An asset is something like a house, a car or a boat.
    A liability is a debt.

    I’m expecting a raging reply to this typed all in capital letters using excessive profanity ending with the words “don’t hate” which will only reaffirm the stupidity of niggers on this site.
