Sean “P. Diddy” Combs is still at the top of his game, because the celebrity sugar daddy has once again been named the richest man in hip hop. The 44-year-old rapper and businessman topped Forbes’ list of “Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists,” with an estimated net worth of $700 million—that’s about $120 million more than last year.
The celebrity sugar daddy—whose girlfriend, Cassie Ventura, is 17 years younger—made most of his recent money off Revolt TV, a multi-platform music channel that he owns most of.
On top of that, Diddy is still making money off of his music and famous clothing lines, Sean John and Enyce. Plus, the celebrity sugar daddy has a big stake in Diageo, the beverage company that produces both Cîroc and Smirnoff vodka, which means he makes money off of their hefty profits, too.
Coming in behind Sean “P. Diddy” Combs on the Forbes list is Dr. Dre, who’s estimated to be worth around $550 million, followed by Jay Z ($520 million), Bryan “Birdman” Williams ($170 million), and 50 Cent ($100 million).
