Dr. Dre was reported sometimes back to be the richest hip-hop artiste. It was announced that Dre had the highest net worth in the hip-hop celebrity’s category. However, another hip-hop star has overtaken him. According to Forbes’ list of richest hip-hop artists currently, Sean Combs, AKA P Diddy, is the one topping the list.
After selling his headphone line to Apple at $3 billion and paying the taxes last year, Dr. Dre remained with a net worth of $500 million, which ended his celebration he had at the beginning when he announced he was “The first billionaire in hip-hop, right here on the [expletive] West Coast.” Recently, Dre’s net worth was estimated by Forbes to be $700 million, but he isn’t the richest hip-hop entertainer since P Diddy has his wealth estimated at $735 million, which put him on the front of other hip-hop artistes. After Forbes went through Diddy’s businesses, it found that his investments sum up to $735 million in net worth.
P Diddy is one artiste who is known to have concentration on both music career and on his investments. “Sean has been aggressive in being sure that we put the power of the platform in the hands of musicians to be able to create with fans in their authentic voice.” Revolt chief executive Keith Clinkscales said. Sean Combs (P Diddy) is not the kind of artiste who makes an investment and closes his eyes on it, with an excuse that he’s busy with music. He looks after both.
