With $580 million, the Bad Boy Records founder handily beat competitors Jay-Z and Dr. Dre.
(CNA)-Whatever Sean “Diddy” Combs is going by these days, there’s one label sure to fit the hip-hop mogul: rich, New York Daily News reports.
For the third year in a row, Diddy has topped Forbes’ list of wealthiest hip-hop artists.
Most of Diddy’s dollars don’t come from his musical ventures, the magazine points out. Rather, he’s built up a fortune through lucrative ventures such as his deal with Diageo’s Ciroc vodka.
The Bad Boys Records founder hasn’t slowed down since he was first crowned hip-hop’s richest by the magazine in 2011. In fact, his estimated worth has bumped up considerably from when he first entered on the chart at $475 million.
