JAY-Z Crushes Diddy, Nas, Dr. Dre, Drake & Even Beyoncé On Forbes Highest-Paid Celebs List

 

Music mogul JAY-Z knows the numbers don’t lie – especially when it comes to Forbes’ Highest Paid Celebrities list. The renowned financial publication has listed Young Hov’s annual salary way more than his contemporaries – notably Diddy, Kendrick Lamar, Nas, Dr. Dre and Drake.

According to Forbes, Young Hov ranked No. 25 on its list of 100 with nearly $80 million to his name.

Despite the major placement, Jigga still fell well behind celebs like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and boxing icon Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Back in March, JAY made headlines after finally dethroning Diddy from Forbes‘ annual Wealthiest Hip-Hop list.

Jay-Z upped his net worth from $810 million to $900 million over the past year, seizing hip-hop’s cash crown for the first time since Forbes started counting back in 2011. The Brooklyn-born mogul’s jump is due mostly to the rising value of his interests in Armand de Brignac champagne and D’Ussé cognac, on top of nine-figure ownership stakes in his Roc Nation empire and Tidal streaming service. Dre ranks third with $770 million, creeping upward thanks to the market trends boosting his nine-figure windfall from Apple’s $3 billion buyout of Beats in 2014. (Forbes)
