Who are the top 10 richest hip hop musicians?

Here's Forbes list of richest of hip hop artists.

1. Diddy ($820 million)

After changing his name from Puff Daddy to P. Diddy to Diddy over the past couple of decades, Sean Combs may soon have a new moniker: billionaire. He’s closing in on ten-digit wealth on account of his lucrative deal with Diageo’s Ciroc, as well as huge stakes in TV network Revolt, alkaline water brand Aquahydrate and tequila DeLeon.

2. Jay Z ($810 million)

Sprint’s $200 million January investment in music streaming service Tidal reportedly values the platform at $600 million—more than ten times what Jay Z paid for it two years ago. His remaining stake’s surge in value helped him leapfrog Dr. Dre and nearly Diddy; continued growth from his Roc Nation entertainment company and Armand de Brignac champagne could put him over the top.

3. Dr. Dre ($740 million)

Apple bought Beats for $3 billion in 2014, and Dre’s cut gave him the largest single-year payday ever recorded by a living musician—now he sits back and watches his cash stash grow. Days after the Beats deal was announced, the superproducer scooped up a 14,000 square foot Los Angeles mansion for $40 million; according to government records, it’s already worth nearly 20% more than he paid.

4. Birdman ($110 million)

Along with his brother, Ronald “Slim” Williams, Birdman co-owns Cash Money Records, home to three of the music world’s biggest stars: Drake, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne. All three have been rumored to be leaving the label in recent years, but so far their record deals have kept them in place—and Cash Money’s coffers full.

5. Drake ($90 million)

Last year’s Views became the first album to top 1 billion spins on Apple Music and helped fuel a grueling tour that took Drake from Atlanta to Amsterdam, grossing north of $1 million per night along the way. His deals with Apple, Nike and Sprite should keep the cash coming even when he’s not on the road. At just 30 years of age, he’s young enough to be the son of any of his fellow listmembers.

6. 50 Cent

Call him a gangster call him a celeb, hate him love him, 50-cent is here at position 5 in the list of the richest rappers. Curtis Jackson is his real names and he is one of the few rappers who have enjoyed longtime fame as the most famous rappers of all time. Apart from doing music, he has had very good investments in various companies that have made him earn over half of his current fortune of millions. One of the most lucrative investment he made was the deal with Vitamin Water and he earned over $100 million from his stock when Coca-Cola Company bought the Vitamin Water Company.

7. Eminem

Is he the top selling hip hop artist of the current times? Maybe he is given that whenever he goes, it is reported that ticket sales bring huge amounts. Having sold over 50 million albums is not a child play. Besides, he has a record of 40 million online album downloads. Did you know that the album sales is directly proportional to the net worth? Yes, the more you sell, the more wealthy you become. Eminem started to rise to fame back in 1996 and has been famous to date. Currently, he is regarded as one of the most influential rappers of all time.

What about his beginning? Eminem also started in a slum set up in the Slums of Detroit which is situated 8 miles from the main road. Today he is up there with wealth worth is in millions & is placed the 7th in the list of the top earners hip hop artists.

8. Lil Wayne

I guess the name Lil Wayne cannot sound new to the ears of music lovers. Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. rose to fame with his stage name Lil Wayne to reach the peak in the world of hip-hop. His VIP status remained even when he was imprisoned in Rikers Island and his status saw him being isolated from the “common prisoners.” Did you really know this? He utilized the privacy accorded to him to write the lyrics of his album. Where is he today financially? His riches are worth millions, an amount most people would just possess in dreams.
