Washington, Mar 11 (ANI): P. Diddy, who has a fortune of 475 million dollars, has been named the wealthiest artist in hip-hop.

The ‘Hello Good Morning’ rapper beat Jay-Z, who has an estimated wealth of 450 million dollars, according to a list compiled by Forbes magazine, reports Contactmusic.

The rapper and producer’s wealth is fuelled by his Sean John clothing brand, Bad Boy Worldwide record label and his vodka brand Ciroc - a joint venture with drinks brand Diageo.

Diddy - who has humble roots - recently splashed out on his son, Justin, buying him a 250,000-pound limousine for becoming an Honours student, but insists none of his seven children are spoiled by wealth.

Forbes Magazine’s five wealthiest artists:

1. P. Diddy

2. Jay-Z

3. Dr. Dre

4. 50 Cent

5. Bryan ‘Birdman’ Williams (ANI)
