    P. Diddy Tops Hip-Hop's Richest Artists List, Followed by Jay-Z and Dr Dre


    [​IMG]

    With nearly half a billion dollars in the bank Sean Combs, aka 'Diddy' has beaten rap colleague Jay-Z to the top of Forbes magazine's list of Hip-Hop's Wealthiest Artists..

    The Bad Boy Records founder has an estimated wealth of $475 million, which he has acquired from his clothing line Sean John, his record label, and several product endorsements.

    Jay-Z, meanwhile, closely follows with $450 million.

    The Forbes list was put together by taking into consideration the artists' current holdings and past earnings.

    Only performers were included on the list, which is why hip-hop tycoon Russell Simmons didn't place.

    Following Diddy and Jay-Z is Dr. Dre with $125 million, 50 Cent and Birdman are tied at fourth place with $100 million

    Nimefurahi sana manake ni BLACKS.....

    hawa jamaa waliteseka sana na ubaguzi wa rangi huko USA hali iliyopelekea kujituma sana na kujiajiri wenyewe, leo hii tunaona mafanikio yao.

    Usikate tamaa hata unaponyanyapaliwa kwa rangi yako, u can still do something else.

    "The Forbes list was put together by taking into consideration the artists' current holdings and past earnings."
    "The Bad Boy Records founder has an estimated wealth..."

    And this is why the list is completely flawed. Both Sean John and Badboy Entertainment have been completely irrelevant for the past 5 years - and not a single one of his endorsements is significant enough to generate the kind of money that would put him in the #1 spot. Even the cheap Vodka that he promotes isn't as dominant as you're led to believe.

    Also, Baby "Birdman" Williams has nowhere near one hundred million dollars. His brother is the actual mastermind behind Cash Money, and even he doesn't have that amount of money. I feel I should add that Cash Money isn't even fully owned by the Williams brothers.

    Finally, the real list would look something like this:

    1. Eminem
    2. Jay-Z
    3. P.Diddy
    4. 50 Cent
    5. Dr.Dre

    Honorable mention: Kanye West.

    The moral of the story is never believe the financial information of any entertainer. Especially rappers.

    Kumbuka wanaongelea 'Msanii wa hip hop' tajiri...na sio msanii/mwanamuziki tajiri! Hip hop 'basically' ni muziki wa watu weusi, ukichanganya wasanii/wanamuziki wote hao jamaa hawafui dafu!

    Diddy kama mfanyabiashara atakuwa na investments nyingine nyingi ambazo hatuzijui.

    "... Both Sean John and Badboy Entertainment have been completely irrelevant for the past 5 years ..." - This is what I originally posted.

    Sean John has been as relevant as G Unit Clothing in the fashion industry. In other words, the clothing brand hasn't been hot for a good minute. And by 'good minute', I'm actually talking about years.

    When it comes to the music side of things; if you can name me 1 artist from Badboy Entertainment that has made a significant impact in the entertainment industry (in the past 5 years), then you'll have a point. Janelle was certainly critically acclaimed, but the numbers her album did were very poor. Even Diddy himself has been a remarkable failure, do you know how much money he invested in his last album? And how little he actually made back?

    The largest sum of money Diddy made from a performance (in the last 5 years) was from his appearance on American Idol. And that check wasn't even half of what a guy like Eminem makes headlining regular shows.

    So as for Eminem not appearing on any lists... if you knew how much Eminem makes you wouldn't even bother to question his omission from these 'money lists'. Because his absence would be an instant indication that the list is one big lie, created for the sake of generating hits and attention. I mean they got us talking about it, right? Mission accomplished on their part.

    The reality is Eminem makes more money from album sales, makes more money from shows, makes more money from royalties, makes more money from endorsements, makes more money from appearances, the list goes on and on and on. He makes more money than everyone else in the hip hop business.

    Here's a fun fact: Out of all of the artists and rappers in the history of hip hop, Eminem is one of 3 artists to have made a movie (in which they were the lead) that generated revenue in excess of $200m. Check out the attached picture, that's the leader in this space.

    (Btw, 50 Cent's $200m deal through his production company isn't as lucrative as it sounds. That's all that needs to be said on the matter).
