Hip Hop’s $700 Million Sugar Daddy

Sugar Daddy Sean “P. DiddySean “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?
