Sean 'Diddy' Combs: Hip-Hop's Wealthiest Artist!

Sean “Diddy” Combs tops Forbes‘ Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists 2012 list!

The 42-year-old entertainer’s net worth of $550 million secured him the No. 1 spot, followed by Jay-Z ($460 million), Dr. Dre ($270 million), Cash Money Records co-founder Bryan “Birdman” Williams ($125 million), and 50 Cent ($110 million).

“Who’s going to be hip-hop’s first billionaire is still to be determined,” Steve Stoute, the advertising guru who founded and co-owns Translation with Jay-Z, told Forbes. “But clearly Jay and Puffy are far and away positioned to surpass that.”

“One of my motivations in life is to be a billionaire,” Birdman added. “We’re going to keep working hard until we get our brand to be as big as possible. That’s the goal in life, that’s what I live for.”

    I Hate all of them.
    They have destroyed African American culture which used to be about Motown, rock n roll, and SOUL.
    Degraded black women and girls,reduced them to common wh*res so much that people find it unbelievable that we have a first lady who happens to be black.
    They can’t imagine a black woman in that role, that’s brainwashing to the highest degree.
    Rap culture IS r*pe culture, it IS the soundtrack to rape, Ashley Judd you were right!
    Rap is what made it popular to call women and girls B’s and H’s.
    And the men above are ALL to blame for it, and any man to come before or after them with the same mindset.
    They may have billions in money, but that is all they have. They have sold their souls and may they all go to HELL!!!

    like why do we care what this assho_e makes, he has no talent and america and the world fall for his publicity machine, go die and take your 550 million and shove it up your As_ because we don’t care.

    @Felix: I guess that goes to show that you didn’t bother to find out before being a critic. It won’t hurt to investigate how they got rich. They worked for it. They created companies. They’re businessman just like other businessmen. They have clothing lines. They manage other artist. They license their names. Just research it and learn.

  • Love The Shoes

    @camillus: He’s talented enough to be worth a half a billion bucks and now don’t you sound even MORE stupid.

  • hey
