Jay-Z Tops Forbes' Wealthiest Hip-Hop Artist List


Jay-Z has claimed the number one spot on Forbes' recently released Hip-Hop Wealthiest Acts of 2018 list, with a net worth of $900 million.

This is the first time Jay-Z has landed on the top of the list. He increased his net worth by $90 million this year, thanks to his many business ventures, including his label Roc Nation and streaming service Tidal.

Hov knocked Diddy out of the top spot on the list this year. Diddy came in at the No. 2 spot with a net worth of $825 million. Dr. Dre took the third spot, with 770 million, while Eminem and Drake tied for fourth place on the list.

"Jay-Z, Diddy and Dre are not only the wealthiest hip-hop acts on the planet, but the richest American musicians of any genre," Forbes wrote on Twitter earlier this week.
