Sean “Diddy” Combs Tops Forbes’ 2013 Hip Hop Cash Kings

 

Sean “Diddy” Combs can pat himself on the back, because he’s reclaimed the top spot on Forbes 2013 Hip Hop Cash Kings list. He literally cashed out with at whopping $50 million.

Just a year ago, the Bad Boy mogul clocked in at number two following an awe-inspiring year by Dr. Dre. But this time around, Diddy’s earnings from Ciroc, Bad Boy, Sean John, and other ventures combined was enough to hold off  worthy opposition.

Jay Z followed with $43 million, though the list was tallied prior to Magna Carta Holy Grail‘s release and his deal with Samsung. Dre, Nicki Minaj and Birdman all come in at the third, fourth, and fifth spots, respectively.
