The rapper only needs $180 million to be a billionaire, and if he continues going at the pace that he's at now, he'll probably be there in less than five years.

This year, rappers Diddy, Jay Z and Drake appear on Forbes' Top Five Wealthiest Hip-Hop Artists list. This will be his seventh consecutive year on top of the list.

Let's begin with the list first: As earlier mentioned, Diddy stands atop all with a jaw-dropping net worth $820 million.




According to the publication, Diddy's deals with Diageo's Ciroc, Aquahydrate, DeLeon tequila and the 2013 launch of his network Revolt, keeps him ranked at number one. It should come as no surprise that there are some truly staggering net worths. Mr Carter's $810 million fortune got a 30% boos after Sprint's $200 million investment in his music streaming service, Tidal put the company's value at $600 million. Legendary producer Dr. Dre finishes in third place with $740 million.

Bryan "Birdman" Williams is worth $110 million and co-owns Cash Money records with his brother. Meanwhile, Drizzy takes the No. 5 spot ($90 million), thanks to Views, OVO, the "Summer Sixteen Tour", Virginia Black, and his Apple and Nike deals.
