The Forbes Five: Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists 2015

See why Cassie can’t leave? Lol. Forbes
has unveiled its list of hip-hop’s five wealthiest artists for 2015 and it was
a big battle between Dr. Dre and Diddy.
After selling off his Beats By Dre headphone line to Apple,
the super producer pocketed $500 million after taxes to bring his net worth to
an estimate $700 million. Still, he’s not the richest man in hip-hop. Diddy is,
according to Forbes, with an estimated net worth of $735 million.
Diddy’s empire includes huge stakes in his TV network
Revolt, clothing line Sean John, alkaline water brand Aquahydrate, and new
tequila DeLeon, while Dre’s overall net worth is credited to the nine-figure
payout he received from Apple’s acquisition of Beats.

Jay Z comes in third with an estimated net worth of $550
million, due to assets such as Roc Nation and his Armand De Brignac champagne
50 Cent comes in fourth with $155 million, hoping to repeat
the success of the Vitaminwater sale, via stakes in the SMS Audio headphones
line, Effen Vodka and Frigo underwear.
Closing out the list is Birdman with $150 million, due to
the success of his Cash Money Records empire. However, his overall number is
