This post is going to set the record straight by giving you details on the top richest musicians in the world for this year, and you can surely bank on the information contained in this post as accurate.
Taking the number 5 spot on this list is Canadian rapper Drake. He currently has a net worth of 90 million dollars, and is one of the hottest rappers in the music industry today. His recent track God’s Plan has really made lot’s of waves, and giving the fact that he spent almost a million Dollars on the track alone, we can tell he is doing really fine. I won’t be surprised to see Drake at the top of this list anytime soon.
Rapper and Cash Money Records co-owner Bryan “Birdman” Williams takes the number 4 spot on this list with a net worth of 110 million dollars. We don’t get a lot of music from him in recent time, but his Label is doing fine, and so is his bank account.
3. Dr. Dre
Andre Romelle Young better known by his stage name Dr. Dre, is an American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur. Dr. Dre is the founder and current CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics. He takes the number 3 spot on this list with a net worth of 740 million Dollars. Dr. Dre is highly respected in the music industry globally, and you just can’t take that away from him. The movie Straight Outta Compton is still one of the best things I have watched till date, please don’t mention Black Panther, that is not just a movie, that is a blessing. World Richest musicians
2. Jay Z
He takes the second place on this top 5 list with a net worth of 810 million dollars. This was largely due to a 200 million dollars investment in his Tidal music streaming service from wireless carrier Sprint in January. The company is now said to be worth more than 10 times his initial investment. This let’s you realise that musicians are also smart businessmen.
1. Sean Diddy Combs “Puff Daddy”
Sean John Combs who is also known by his stage names Puff Daddy, Puffy, P. Diddy and Diddy (what other name please?) takes the number on spot on this list. He is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, actor, record producer and entrepreneur.
