The Forbes Magazine list of the 20 highest earners in hip-hop music just dropped and of course, Diddy reigns champ.
Sean Combs tops the coveted list, once again this year, bringing in a whopping $130 million. Diddy’s deals with Ciroc vodka and DeLeon tequila make up a big chunk of the mogul’s earnings along with income from his Bad Boy Reunion Tour, as well as the sale of his Sean John clothing line that estimated around $70 million.
Last night was historic. I was the only African American on a stage of the brightest business minds of the world. It was an honor to be amongst leaders from different countries and industries. I’m inspired and I hope it inspires my people. This truly is a historic moment to be honored with this group of individuals. @Forbes #100 #BlackExcellence
