1. Diddy – $60 Million

1 spot despite the sale of Beats netting him $500 million. Sean “P. Diddy” Combs landed the No. 1 spot on Forbes annual ranking of the highest earning hip-hop stars. Diddy has a combined net worth of $735 million, derived not just from his music career but his interest in a number of companies

*Drumrolls* finally the top position on the list for highest grossers goes to Diddy. Diddy wears the crown of the top cash king of the rap world with a staggering gross earnings of $60 million.

Diddy is rarely seen performing recently, however, the cash flows heavily from his goodwill in the music industry, clothing brand, Alkaline water brand, Vodka brand and other ventures.

So Diddy wears the crown this year. The question is will he be able to keep his throne or will someone else take his spot. Stay tuned until next year!
