Diddy is still the richest rapper on the planet, at least according to Forbes magazine.

Forbes has released their list of the top five richest hip hop artists for 2017 and Diddy landed right on top for the seventh consecutive year. The New York native, who is on track to become a billionaire, is estimated to have a net worth of $820 million. Well, damn.

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 was a tight race between Diddy and Jay Z, who fell in at number 2. Per the mag, Jay’s estimated net worth is a cool $810 million. So what’s the catalyst behind the bank roll? The rapper’s label Roc Nation, of course his No. 1 selling albums and Tidal, which is apparently valued at $600 million.

Dr. Dre always makes the list; this year, however, he fell in at number 3. Dre’s biggest payday was back in 2014 when Apple purchased Beats by Dre for a cool $3 billion. His net worth is now $740 million.

This might be shocking, but Birdman is still ranked in the top five, now holding the number 4 spot with a net worth of $110 billion. Birdman’s success is largely due to Cash Money Records, the home of Drake, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne.

Coming in at number five, Drake, whose net worth is $90 million, all thanks to touring and his deals with Nike, Apple and Sprite.

Roc Nation manages Rihanna, Shakira, J Cole and DJ Khaled to name a few.

Apparently, the pop diva is hoping Hov and his team can put her back on top now that she parted ways with former manager Stella Bulochnikov earlier this month.

Sources tell HipHollywood Carey is cleaning house, and has also fired her publicist, assistant and attorney Darrell Miller.

But one person who hasn’t gotten the boot is her back-up dancer boyfriend Bryan Tanaka. Rumors were swirling that she hired Tanaka to take over her day-to-day management, but he’s actually her creative director.

Carey just released her holiday movie Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You, and is slated to bring her Christmas concerts back to the Beacon Theater in NYC this month. She hasn’t however dropped a new album in almost four years.

Fingers crossed this new partnership with Roc Nation brings about new music, and a Mariah / Jay Z collaboration. The two did make magic back in 1999 with their #1 single “Heartbreaker.”
