Diddy Tops Forbes’ 2013 List Of Hip-Hop Cash Kings

Diddy the Comedic Film Star

When you can lose $1 million in a dice game and not bat an eye like Diddy did last week, chances are, your bank account is at epic proportions. As if you needed any more confirmation that the hip-hop mogul’s stash is on Scrooge McDuck status, Forbes releases its annual list of Cash Kings for 2013 and Diddy was once again at the top of the list. Puff raked in $50 million over the last 12 months due to his Bad Boy records label, Sean John clothing line, Blue Flame agency and his stake in Ciroc Vodka. Jay Z comes in second on the list pulling in $43 million from his business ventures in D’Ussé cognac, his Roc Nation label and management firm, tours and his most recent album Magna Carta Holy Grail for which he got $5 million up front from Samsung. Dr. Dre rounds out the top three with $40 million in revenue. There are some new additions to the list, and even some that might surprise you.
