Jay-Z, Diddy and More Among Forbes' Hip-Hop's Wealthiest Acts of 2018

Jay-Z, Diddy and More Among Forbes' Hip-Hop's Wealthiest Acts of 2018

The 48-year-old "Hard Knock Life" rapper and music mogul increased his estimated net worth in 2017 to $900 million, up by $90 million from the year before in the annual list compiled by Forbes. But the magazine says that the N.W.A. alumnus could very well be the top earner next year once he gets his next round of Apple stock, depending on the share price at the time. However, Forbes' recently released their "Hip Hop's Wealthiest Artists 2018" and Hov has finally topped the list.

The Bad Boy founder can thank his label, spirit brands DeLeon Tequila and Ciroc Vodka, Revolt TV and more for his massive success. Somehow a year later Jay managed to go from a cool $810 million to his $900 million spot.

Forbes put the rising fortune of Jay-Z, aka Shawn Carter, down to the rising value of his interests in Armand de Brignac champagne and D'Ussé cognac.

Diddy holds down the number two spot, experiencing modest growth from a year ago, with a fortune listed at $825 million.

There's a primary 16MP camera on the back with that 5MP low-light sensor alongside, and also an 8MP front-facing camera. The dual camera at the back are a 13 MP main snapper and a 2 MP assistant and the front camera is a 5 MP.

This is JAY-Z's first time topping the list. Dre ranks third with $770 million, creeping upward thanks to the market trends boosting his nine-figure windfall from Apple's $3 billion buyout of Beats in 2014.

If Jay-Z continues the kind of growth he saw from last year to this year, the Brooklyn artist could become hip-hop's first billionaire.

Trump announces 'largest ever' set of sanctions against North Korea
