Last week, Forbes released its annual “Hip-Hop Cash Kings” list of the richest hip-hop celebrities in all of music. For the first time in the list’s eight-year history, the “Cash Kings” list was topped by Diddy after several years of falling just short after being ranked at No. 2 for four straight years.
