Diddy Tops Forbes’ Cash Kings List For The Second Year

Diddi Forbes Cash Kings

Hip-hop is no stranger to millionaires. The top earners in the genre have a spot in Forbes magazine’s Cash Kings list, though the list has one Queen this year in the form of Nicki Minaj.Of the 20, Diddy etched out the #1 spot on the list with $62 million. Even with all that Ciroc money coming in, Diddy has found time to pump some of that money into his new Harlem charter school.

The top 20 houses names from across the spectrum including Kendrick Lamar, Pitbull, Nicki Minaj, Drake, J. Cole, and more. Most everyone on this list has some sort of venture outside of hip-hop going, which is probably the biggest reason for them being on here (Dr. Dre’s Apple/Beats partnership, Diddy’s Ciroc, Ludacris’ movie career, Nicki’s MAC partnership, etc).
