Diddy Tops Forbes’ Hip-Hop Cash Kings 2015 List w/ $60 Million

Last year Dr. Dre topped Forbes’ Cash Kings 2014: The World’s Highest Paid Hip-Hop Acts list with a staggering $620 million following his deal with Apple. This time around, the mega producer dropped down a few notches to number four with an even $33 million, losing to hip-hop heavyweights Diddy, Jay Z and Drake.

With his own television network, alkaline water brand Aquahydrate, Ciroc vodka and clothing line, Diddy hails as 2015’s Hip-Hop Cash King with $60 million. Being no stranger to victories, the Bad Boy also took the top spot on The Forbes Five: Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists 2015 list earlier this year (take that, take that). Jay Z’s tour with wifey Beyonce (combined with his other endeavors) helped him to rake in $56 million, and Drake closed out the top three with $39.5 million.

Notably absent from this year’s list is 50 Cent, because you know, bankruptcy. Check out the top 15 from the Hip-Hop Cash Kings list below:
