Barely a day after he was sued by his ex-chef for sexual harassment, Diddy has been named by Forbes as the wealthiest Hip-Hop Artist of 2017 with an estimated net worth of $820 million dollars.
Diddy’s wealth is due in large part to his lucrative deal with Ciroc and his huge investment in the Revolt TV network.
In second place was Jay Z with a whopping $810 million. Bey’s hubby, according to Forbes, increased his wealth by 30 percent after Sprint invested $200 million in his music-streaming service, Tidal which is now reportedly worth $600 million.
