Jay Z Overthrows Diddy As World’s Richest Hip-Hop Star

Jay Z has finally ended Diddy’s long reign as Hip hop’s richest cash king.

On Thursday, Forbes released their list of the wealthiest artists in hip-hop, Jay-Z earned the title of World’s Richest Rapper.

The two men were separated by a mere $10 million in last year’s rankings, and it looks like 2017 was a good year for Hov, as he now has a $75 million edge in the race to see who can become the first person in hip-hop who can boast a net worth of $1 billion.

Here’s the list of the richest performers in the industry:

Jay-Z: $900 million
Diddy: $825 million
Dr. Dre: $770 million
Eminem and Drake: tied at $100 million
