Jay-Z Surpasses Diddy As Hip-Hop's Wealthiest

Forbes just revealed that Jay-Z is ranked #1 as Hip-Hop's Wealthiest Acts bringing in a net worth of $900 million dollars. Having that Jay's net worth increased led to him surpassing Sean "Diddy" Combs who held the title as Hip-Hop's wealthiest for seven consecutive years.

According to Forbes:

"Jay-Z upped his net worth from $810 million to $900 million over the past year, seizing hip-hop's cash crown for the first time since Forbes started counting back in 2011."

Having multiple investments in D'Ussé cognac, on top of his ownership stakes in his Roc Nation empire and Tidal streaming service all contributed to Jay-Z skyrocketing his way up to the top of the Forbes list. 

Congrats to Jay-Z on this attainment!
