Forbes’ Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists of 2018

Hip Hop’s Wealthiest Artists of 2018:

Forbes has released its list of the wealthiest Hip-Hop artists of the year 2018 and rapper Jay-Z tops the list for the first time.

The hip hop mogul grew his net worth from $810 million last year to $900 million, helping him beat Diddy this time. The figure comes majorly due to his interests in Armand de Brignac champagne and D’Ussé cognac, on top of nine-figure ownership stakes in his Roc Nation label/management and Tidal streaming service.

Former leader, Diddy, ranks at Number 2 this year despite increasing his fortune in the past one year.

Dr. Dre holds down Number 3 with $770 million while Drake and Eminem are tied at an even $100 million apiece.

Eminem, who is the best-selling rapper of all time, isn’t known for big businesses outside music but he ranks at number 5, thanks to earnings from his latest album Revival.

Here is the list:
1. Jay-Z ($900 million)
2. Diddy ($825 million)
3. Dr. Dre ($770 million)
4. Drake ($100 million)
5. Eminem ($100 million)
