Sean 'Diddy' Combs tops Forbes list as hip hop's richest artist

Entrepreneur and music mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs secured the top spot on the Forbes list of Hip-Hop's Wealthiest Artists for the sixth consecutive year.
The publication lists his net worth at $820 million which comes courtesy of deals with Diageo's Ciroc, his stake in the TV network Revolt and last year's Bad Boy Reunion Tour, which brought together the top acts on the Bad Boy Entertainment label.
Combs edged out rapper Jay Z, who secured a $200 million investment by Sprint into his Tidal music streaming service placing his net worth at $810 million.
Despite his sale of Beats to Apple in 2015, Dr. Dre isn't a billionaire.
He came in at number three on the list with an estimated net worth of $740 million.
Cash Money Records co-founder Bryan "Birdman" Williams ($110 million) and rapper Drake ($90 million) round out the top five.
