Sean "P. Diddy" Combs has gone by many names, but for now we can call him hip-hop's biggest moneymaker.
Forbes magazine has released its list of the five wealthiest hip-hop artists of 2013, and Combs is No. 1. Forbes estimates that he has a net worth of $580 million.
The industry mogul is lining his pockets mainly with deals outside of music, particularly his work with Ciroc vodka.
Coming in second place is Jay-Z, whose net worth arrives at $475 million. Between the 2007 sale of Rocawear for $204 million, and his $150 million deal with Live Nation, we're guessing his daughter Blue Ivy won't have to worry about her college tuition fund.
Coming in third place is Dr. Dre with a net worth of $350 million, mostly due to his Beats by Dr. Dre line of headphones.
Lil Wayne's Cash Money/Young Money Entertainment co-hort, Bryan "Birdman" Williams, is at No. 4 with a net worth of $150 million. At No. 5 on the list of the wealthiest hip-hop artists is 50 Cent, whose net worth of $125 million includes solid sales of music, merchandise, video games and books.
Please stop hating! Maria, what do you mean a bunch of gangsters and dealers are the cream of the crop now? According to American history, a bunch of "gangsters" stole the land from the Native people. Stole people from their original land to work here for free for hundreds of years. The Alcohol prohibition and so on and so on. To be honest, there has always been a bunch of "gangsters" in America for Hundreds of years.
Stephanie is what women need...not this loser
stephanie is another class act in the business...she is bright attractive and smart....this is what people want
Puffy is a class act and a good represention of a successful black man
Congrats Diddy! I heard this in a morning Breaking TV show. Good to know.
He still wears ear rings. How old is he? Silly old man. What a dork.That's really funny .My boyfriend and i both think so..
He is almost 11year older than me .i met him via ~~AgeGapSingles.C' 0M ~ a nice place for younger women and oldermen, or older women and younger men,to interact with each other,love it .
Puff shines in hip hop.Gives then a good name.He is neat and stylish not like Chris Brown.So dirty and uncuthed.A disgrace to hi hop.Don't see what Rihanna sees in him.
DIDDY inDA House = BANKnDA $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. (Shoutout2TreySongzinDA "D")
Puffy's success is a wonderful example of America and Capitalism!
You create something – market it to people – make money.
Lots of it.

love this guy = Jennifer missed out on a wealth of business advice from this guy.(SHOUTOUT 2PAK/TI/DRENEMINEM)
did u burp
Lets go bird am an weezy!!!!!!!!!!!
How about giving about $500million of that to help the poor.
wow he gets away with one of the biggest crimes in the century and on to become the richest man in hiphop !
No, the biggest crimes of the century were covered up by the Vatican.
The Easter bunny has left me many chocolate treats in my panties.
Now,you need to wipe yourself
If your so much of a wealthy ass man in hip hop. you see our schools or going doing and people out here dying for a lil bit of change you rap about the hood so much that niqqa we should get paid of the life you have other rap about. Give back to the hoods that put you where you at. But you fall under that category of wanna be's. but You can sit on all the money all you want but when time comes lets see how much the man up stairs let you take. Help some of the kids out that you see starving around the globe. All yal stars do is set at home in yall comfy chairs big ass house, and think traveling the world and making music is what we need when really yall not doing nothing but putting on negative music. But if yall cloam yall from the hood there should be nothing stoping you from helping out if you so dam wealthy.
Right on brother!
the miscommunication causes alot of trouble....can't we try at least we will know for sure if we hate each other or not....I don't think we do hate each other....everyone is always trying too throw a wrench in it for delays and hatred...let's try at some point.
i'm not black and i'm not the enemy-I am white and a good person
they are way too recognized as it is...
Diddy is blessed from Jesus .....i am proud of you Puffy Congratulation nobody cant u hold down :
living through blogs and overheard conversations that we are not sure are real or not is a problem....
please help these people and most of all pray the get off the tool.
he truly is a talented man...
50 Cent has way more than 125 million.... He's made over 100 mill on music, millions on clothing, video games, books and headphones not to mention the deal with Coca Cola buying Vitamin water in which he received another 100 million. Jay Z is closer to 500 and p Diddy is around 550, birdman has 100 million. Dr Dre seems just about right to me
puffy has also produced most of mary j blidge's cd's
Keep in mind that Combs' wealth has almost nothing to do with his hip-hop career and everything to do with his other business ventures, such as his clothing line.
People!!!!! Just three words .................Get over it.
People who write music can live a very wealthy life without doing anything. Dolly Parton said when Whitney Houston sang her song, I will always love you, it made her a much richer woman. When Whitney died, she said the flood gates of money once again came pouring in. You may not hear from some entertainers directly, but as long as their music is being played, they are getting paid. Believe that!!
The saddest thing is none of these guys are humanitarians. It was reported in 2010 that Jay-z gave 6k to charity. He will spend that on 1 meal taking his new best friends out to dinner Chris & Gwyneth. You have Brad & Angie helping with the rebuilding efforts in New Orleans and Bono helping Africans all over the world.
and Oprah gave more than the 3 people you just mention combined.
It must be absolute hell to wake up in the morning, look into a mirror and realize you're Sarah Palin. If it was me, I'd put a leaf blower in my mouth and hit the 'on' switch.
try duct tape
why do people always get so jealous when a black man has money . so sad.
When is the last time Diddy put out any new music? I forgot all about him until just now.
It's been awhile. You could say he's done P. Diddly for several years now.
he does not need to put out any music anymore...his businesses will keep him rich for life.
he finally met a great girl..
What a shame. A guy like Sean Combs who only made it big because of someone else is worth more than a guy like JayZ who worked hard and invested wisely, on his own merits. This is an exact representation of America. The guy who works hard and is responsible always comes in second when a Liberal is in office.
I was with you up until your last sentence,when you revealed your ignorance;both Jay-Z and Sean Combs have been doing their thing for the last 20+ years,which means they got to where they are now while both conservative and liberal leaders were in office. But then,people like you only choose to see half of any given story or blame one side for all of the ills in the world,so troll on.
all that you do all day long.... and then motored in all night......you are a tool and as soon as you realize it the better off you will be.....you have too get some help....you cannot stop
your addicted too a tool...you have a huge problem
LOL....whites love to HATE,HATE ,HATE...GET OVER IT....
Not hate. Just disgusted with how sheep blindly follow what they are told is popular instead of thinking for themselves. You are being led by the same liberal media circus that put a socialist in the White House.
And how much humanitarian work does he do?
Actually,he started and funded a charity for underprivledged kids called Daddy's House nearly 20 years ago,as well as made large donations to the Katrina rebuilding fund,among other things. Not saying the guy isn't an egotistical @$$,but he does actually do some charitable acts. The irony is,people on his level can't win;if they give money to causes, they're "just trying to get publicity";if they don't (or do it anonymously),then they're "not doing anything" or "being stingy".
I don't care how much money he has Sean Combs is an narcissistic SOB who knows more than he's telling about Biggy and Tupac's untimely departures!
I could care less about P diddy and his money or anyone else with there money. I work everyday for a living and I don't buy any of his clothes or music. I am not looking for hand outs from any rich black guy that used people to get where they are today or use lyrics in there music that plant the wrong idea in our young minds. Maybe one day as black people we will understand we are our worst enemy. We need to change!!!!! and stop making excuses!!!!!!!!
I am Black!!!!!!
d n dallas stfu please im black and people like you are the enemy. white people do dumb, crazy and embarrasing things all the time they jsut dont repeatedly critizise eachother for it and cosntantly bring it back up like we and the media do.
example: chris brown beating rihanna still constantly brought up / charlie sheen threating to murder and beating his wife and being a coke head barely mentioned
The man does have a nice tux there.
I would enjoy squatting on his head and giving him a face full of trouser twinkies.
I'll bet Kimmy K. is ticked that Kanye didn't make the top 5. Congrats to P. Diddy. He has done very well for himself!
I love NY
good luck puffy...
Congratulations Diddy! Look at all of the haters, lol. Ya’ll wish you were Diddy, but you NEVER will be! He is successful and I wish him much more success.
OMG! He looks just like that kid that shot that baby in the face! :O
Duh! Why would Snoop Lion shoot a baby in the face?!
Really? Doesn't even sound like anything I'd say.
Hey Sokman,I heard you look like Adam Lanza.

Almost a coherent post there. Almost.
Is that all you haters have to say? No matter what a certain people do there are someone of devoid of simple rationale making ignorant comments.
yo truthful unhappy individuals can not see other people be successful and do well with their lives so they will hate. its sad how people cant just be ok or happy for the next man. instead someone comments on his earrings lmao.
its so sad if your truly that unhappy with yourself go listen to heavy metal paint your nails black then jump off a bridge
( real music?)
Yeah! did you forgot how he started? how he made money before he was rich and famous? people have the tendence to forget so soon! we all know who was Puffy a longtime ago,what happens is that money TALKS! he thinks he is WHITE!
@WilhelmF: you have all the command of English and grammar of a high school drop-out. Enjoy your career at McDonald's.
The only reason these clowns are rich is because of stupid people who'll buy anything with their names on it. Gotta give credit to them though because they know their music is crap, so they make the real money on clothes and headphones. Too bad Beats are only good for loud thumpy crap. Real music sounds like sh¡t on them.
You are correct, sir.
your sad stop hating on other peoples lives cause yours sucks it is ugly. they travel and see the world and do things you wish you could do as well as go to places you could only imagine going. be happy for them and stop hating lol what do you listen to ? heavy metal with dudes just screaming and crying and talking about death. you probably wear make up and paint your nails black lol
AMEN! a bunch of gangsters and drug dealers are now the "cream of la cream" rich and famous ,why? because they have money they are now in the Hollywood scale and are accepted because MONEY TALKS Is all ! they are now in TV shows,with celebrities, even if they have a dirty past ,"welcome to America",were money is everything not matter if you are a ghetto dud!
@wesley bermstein: not into heavy metal, and no, my life doesn't suck. I already played golf twice this week while my checks keep rolling in. I fart in your general direction and laugh at your total lack of understanding. Beep! Better get back to work, dude, the fries are done.
He still wears ear rings. How old is he? Silly old man. What a dork.
make up your mind, fool.
