US rapper, Jay-Z is now according to Forbes the Wealthiest Hip Hop Act taking over from Diddy who has held the title for several years.
Jay-Z tops the list with an estimated net worth of $900 million. His mind-boggling earnings knock Sean “Diddy” Combs from the No. 1 spot, a title he previously held for seven consecutive years.
Diddy trails behind with an equally impressive $825 million and Dr. Dre comes in third with $770 million, though there’s a steep drop off when it comes to the fourth and fifth richest rappers in the music industry. Drake and Eminem profited $100 million each within the past year.
