Diddy Was The Highest Paid Rapper In 2016

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 2:57 PM

jay-z-diddy-igDiddy was the highest paid rapper in 2016, according to Forbes’s latest accounting of who made what in music.

Puff made a good chunk of that cash on his Chiroq vodka deal, and his $62 million haul was good for tenth on the overall industry top 30 list, which was topped by Taylor Swift’s ridicilous $170 million pay-year.

The other rappers in the top 30 are Jay Z ($53.5 million), Dr. Dre ($41 million) and Drake ($38.5 million.)

Hov was able to make just about the same amount as his wife Beyonce did in ’16 —  although he didn’t have to release a highly confessional album. So he got that going for him.

1. Taylor Swift 170 million
