Share via emailShare on WhatsApp


Last years #1 on this list, Dr. Dre, dropped to #3 and taking his place is Diddy.  Diddy top the 2013 Forbes Hip Hop Cash Kings list with 50 million and his money comes from Sean John, Ciroq, Bady Boy Records, Revolt TV and his Blue Flame agency. Jay Z comes in at #2 with 7 million less than Diddy, earnings coming from touring, D’usse, Armand De Brignac champpagne, his Roc Nation label and management company, his deal with Samsung and I’m sure Roc Nation Sports will be added to next years list. Dr. Dre’s money comes from producing (for example, he did work on Justin Timberlake’s albumand Jay Z’s MCHG) and although he sold Beats By Dre he still makes money from that! Check the top 20 below!
