Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: Diddy Tops Forbes Five: Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artist of 2017 List, Jay Z Is Right Behind Him.

Looks like once again Diddy can say “take dat, take dat” to his haters who question his wealth *coughs 50 Cent*. Forbes revealed that once again the hip-hop mogul landed the top spot on their Forbes Five: Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artist of 2017.

Thanks to Revolt TV, Ciroc vodka deal with Diageo, successful Bad Boy Reunion tour and other investments Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs pulled in a whopping $820 million. Not bad Puff, not bad at all! BUT his reign at the top isn’t as safe as it used to be as Jay Z is closing in on him.

Hova had himself a year bringing in an astounding $810 in million. Forbes reports Jay Z’s fortune jumped 30% in the last year thanks to investment deal with Sprint that pushed the value of his steaming service to $600 million. Jay’s other ventures with champagne brand, Armand de Bringnac, his film TV-deal with the Weinstein Company and of course his growing brand Roc Nation helped Hov make his impressive push.

To celebrate the news landing the top spot on Forbes list once again Diddy dropped this classy post on Instagram featuring his closest compeitition on the list.

Rounding out the list is Dr.Dre coming in third bringing in $740 million. His total was helped by selling his Beats franchise to Apple for a whopping $3 billion. Cash Money President Birdman again grabs the fourth spot on the list bringing in $110 million thanks to his deals with Lil’Wayne, Drake and Nicki. Speaking of Drake he closes out the top 5 earning $90 million thanks to his album Views, his deals with both Apple and Nike, successful Summer Sixteen tour and his label OVO.

Last years list featured the same usual suspects but had Dre following behind Puff instead of Jay with Birdman and Drake in the same spots on the list. Well if anything congrats to these guys cause they are rich, filthy rich!

Scott Storch Files for Bankruptcy…AGAIN, Says He Has $100 To His Name

scott-storch-bankruptcy

Scott Spencer Storch is known for a plethora of hits that even we lost count a long time ago! Now, the veteran producer-hitmaker is reportedly broke and is now filing for bankruptcy…again.

Storch has worked with artists like: Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Pink and so many more — making him worth $70 million over time.

Originally, he blew $30 mil in a 6 month span on drugs, women, cars, houses and the list goes on. That was the first draw.

Today, TMZ reports that Scott only has $100 in his pockets, $500 in clothing and a $3k watch. And, what makes it even worse, his music companies are valued at $0.

While filing his papers, he also claims in the bankruptcy docs that he made a grand total of $10,000 last year.

This should definitely be a lesson for every rapper, producer, artist to put your money away. Save it. Invest it. Be smart.

Thoughts?
