Hip Hop’s $700 Million Sugar Daddy

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).

What do you think: From these five rich­est men in hip hop, who do you think is the hottest?
