Who do you think is the best rapper alive? Now, who's the richest?
Forbes dropped it's Top 5 of the Richest Rappers, and man was it a tight race!
Drake winning on his streaming sales and more pulled in $90 Million, placing him at #5, while Birdman continues to rank for Cash Money Records at the $110 Million mark. I would have thought that Dr. Dre would have been higher on the list, but Dre makes #3 for his involvement with Apple and Beats, even though he sold the rights to the project back in 2014.
And now, the big battle. Who do you think landed #1 - is it JAY Z or Diddy?
If you answered JAY Z, you are WRONG! Though Jay's $200 Million backing from Sprint, as well as money from his music, Roc Nation, and Armand de Brignac Champagne, he still lands the #2 spot when it comes to the money, at a whopping $810 Million.
Diddy... Diddy... Diddy....
Ranking at #1 on Forbes List, only by an extra $10 Million is Diddy, Puffy, Puff, P.Diddy, whatever his name is, ranks at $820 Million, between Ciroc, TV revenue, tequila branding, his own music, and we're sure, the whole Bad Boy Tour had something to do with the extra cash. However, Diddy has been ranking on the list's high paid celebrities for years, as well.
Get that money!
