Forbes 2018 Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists List
Forbes released their 2018 list of Hip-Hop’s wealthiest artist of this year and Jay-Z topped it for the first time.
The Roc Nation rapper and father of 3 has upped his $810 million worth to $900 million last year, helping him beat Diddy this time. The figure comes majorly due to his interests in Armand de Brignac champagne and D’Ussé cognac, on top of nine-figure ownership stakes in his Roc Nation label/management and Tidal streaming service.
Diddy ranks 2nd this year despite increasing his fortune in the past year, while Dr. Dre comes in 3rd with $770 million. Drake and Eminem tied at $100 million each.
Eminem, who is the best selling rapper of all time, isn’t known for big businesses outside music but he ranks at number 5 thanks to earnings from his latest album Revival.
You can view the list below:
1. Jay-Z ($900 million)
2. Diddy ($825 million)
3. Dr. Dre ($770 million)
4. Drake ($100 million)
5. Eminem ($100 million)
