Diddy Tops Forbes Five Wealthiest Hip-Hop Artists List & Could Be The First To A Billi

Forbes has named the mogul thewealthiest hip-hop artist of 2012. For the second year in a row Mr. Combs topped the list above the likes of Jay-Z50 Cent, and other usual suspects.

The Bad Boy Records head is worth an estimated $550 million, putting him one step closer to becoming hip-hop's first billionaire.  Among the business collaborations fattening his pockets include his partnership with Ciroc vodka, his Sean Jean clothing line, and the Blue Fame marketing agency. The 42-year-old is also planning to follow in the footsteps of Oprah Winfrey, by launching his own network next year, which likely keep him on the Forbes'  list for years to come.

Coming in second place on the list was Jay who is worth an impressive $460 million, due in part to his successful 'Watch the Throne Tour,' which will head overseas this summer. Next was the current king of holograms, Dr. Dre with $270 million, followed by Birdman who is worth over $125 million .

Rounding out the list is 50 Cent who, despite not dropping a single album in over two years, is worth $100 million. He stays winning.
