With only $200 million away from being a billionaire, it’s no surprise that Diddy’s topped Forbes’ richest hip-hop artist list for the seventh year in a row.

His endorsement deals with Diego’s Ciroc, alkaline water Aquahydrate and DeLeon tequila all contribute to his estimated $820 million net worth and his number one ranking. Diddy also founded Revolt digital cable TV network back in 2013.
