Diddy Tops Forbes Wealthiest Hip Hop Artists List

Sean “Diddy” Combs, 42, formerly known as “Puffy” or “Puff Daddy” to many old head told you that he won’t stop. It’s looking like he won’t stop making trips to the bank.

The BadBoy Records founder beat four other competitors with a net worth estimated at $550 million. The Hip Hop Mogul has been busy expanding his business ventures, which includes Ciroc vodka, clothing line Sean John and Enyce, marketing company Blue Flame, as well as BadBoy records.
