Sean “Diddy” Combs has topped the Forbes magazine wealthiest hip-hop artist list. The list reports who the five richest people in hip-hop are and the net worth that put them on the list.

Combs, who also makes money as an actor, producer and entrepreneur, has an estimated net worth of $580 million. He also topped last year’s list with $550 million. Jay-Z follows in second with $475 million, Dr. Dre at third with $350 million, then Birdman with $150 million and 50 Cent rounds out the top five with $125 million.

The list is actually exactly the same as last year, with the only difference being an increase in numbers. Dr. Dre seems to have made a pretty penny in the last year, increasing his net work by $90 million. Much of his income comes from Beats Electronics, but some speculate the Tupac hologram appearance at the 2012 Coachella festival probably helped.
