Wealthiest Rapper CEOs and Entrepreneurs

The wealthiest rapper CEOs and entrepreneurs represent the elite of the elite in the rap world. These rappers not only top the charts with best-selling singles but also rank atop the richest lists for their massive wealth earned from a solid combination of music and other businesses. Hundreds of mainstream rappers and hip hop artists will try to get their name on lists like this but only a select few will be successful enough to reach this level of success.

Unsurprisingly, the top names on this list are the rappers who have been around for several decades both as musicians and entrepreneurs including some of the best rappers of the '90s and the best rappers of the '00s. Sean Combs, also known as Diddy or P. Diddy or Puff Daddy, ranks at the top with an estimated net worth of $500 million according to Forbes Magazine. The Bad Boy mogul rose to fame as a rapper before successful ventures into fashion, restaurants, film and television made him the richest person on this list.

Not far behind is Jay-Z, a rapper and entrepreneur whose journey was quite similar, coming in at $450 million in net worth. Between his musical work, including highly successful collaborations with the likes of Kanye West and wife Beyonce, his Rocawear clothing line, 40/40 Club, Def Jam Records, ownership of the New Jersey Nets in the NBA and many other ventures, Sean Carter as he is also known gives Diddy the best run for his money in the game today.

Just as these two rappers compete with each others for the top spot, there are hundreds if not thousands of other mainstream rappers that aspire to follow in the shoes of Diddy and Jay-Z.
