Diddy, Jay Z, Drake Surpass Dr. Dre On Forbes’ Highest Paid Hip-Hop Acts List
Congratulations, Diddy! You are officially the highest-paid rapper in the world. Forbes published their list of the highest paid hip-hop acts in 2015 today, and all-in-all, it’s fairly predictable. Though Diddy doesn’t make a vast number of live appearances these days, he owns his own TV network (Revolt), a clothing line (Sean Jean), a water brand (Aquahydrate), and Ciroc vodka. The second highest-paid on the list is Jay Z, at an impressive $56 million. Right behind him is Drake — no longer 25 sitting on 25 mill, he’s ranked at $39.5 million, surpassing Dr. Dre’s $33 million. Check out the full ranking here, and listen to Dave East’s timely new single featuring Nas (neither of whom are on Forbes’ list) which was named for this very day below.
