Diddy raked in about $820 million this year, which lands him on top of the ‘Forbes Five’ again! Combs, who also had the top spot in 2015 and 2016, has his assets of Revolt TV, Ciroc, and his “Bad Boy Reunion Tour” to thank for the large monetary success.
Jay-Z comes in a very close second this year with $810 million thanks to TIDAL, Roc Nation and many other investments. Diddy and Hov seem to have a brotherly relationship to encourage their individual pursuits.
Dre is not far behind the two either, still counting from his $3 billion dollar deal with Apple, he continues to increase his value through brands and smart purchases.
The four and five spot are held by Cash Money members Birdman and Drake.
An interesting note is that Drake is the youngest on this list by about 17 years. (Diddy – 47, Jay – 47, Dre – 52, Birdman – 48, Drake – 30)

1. Diddy – $820 million
2. Jay Z – $810 million
3. Dr. Dre – $740 million
4. Birdman – $110 million
