Forbes has released information on 2013’s Hip hops wealthiest rappers. And topping that list once again is Sean ‘Diddy” Combs with an estimated net worth of $580 million. The value was arrived at by also considering Non-music ventures. So Didddy playing a brand ambassador to Diageo’s Cîroc vodka surely must have helped in landing him at that value.
After Diddy comes Jay-Z with $475 million and Dr. Dre at
$350 million.
Here’s how the top five rounded out:
1. Sean “Diddy” Combs — estimated net worth: $580 million
2. Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter — $475 million
3. Andre “Dr. Dre” Young — $350 million
4. Bryan “Birdman” Williams — $150 million
5. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson — $125 million

It is interesting to note that the Top 5 list this year is in the same ranking as last year except for changes in figures.

Last year’s list read:
1. Sean “Diddy” Combs — estimated net worth: $550 million
2. Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter — $460 million
3. Andre “Dr. Dre” Young — $260 million
4. Bryan “Birdman” Williams — $125 million
5. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson — $110 million

Dr. Dre topped $90 million to his last years worth which might suggest the Beats by Dre biz is booming.

According to the Forbe’s website, the values are
arrived at by: “looking at past earnings, valuing current holdings, leafing through financial documents and talking to analysts, attorneys, managers, other industry players and even some of the moguls themselves to find the nitty-gritty details.
