P. Diddy in the fam, who you know do it better?

Honestly, I don’t know anyone who does it better than you, Mr. Diddy, and thanks to Forbes‘ recently released new report, now everyone else knows it as well. The reports estimates that Diddy a.k.a P. Diddy a.k.a Sean Combs has a net worth of $820 million, making him the wealthiest figure in hip-hop this year. Guess he wasn’t lying when he said it was all about the Benjamins (baby).

To date, Diddy has five albums under his belt, a staggering amount when you remember that he can barely rap. His most recent mixtape was 2015’s MMM, which serves as a lead-up to his sixth album No Way Out 2, scheduled to drop in July.

But we all know his income is made up of much more than just music. In addition to Diddy’s extensive rapping and record producing as the founder of Bad Boy Entertainment, he also has built up a solid filmography. Combs has appeared in a handful of movies, including 2014’s Muppets Most Wanted and 2010’s Get Him to the Greek. He also has a lucrative $100 million deal with the high-end vodka company Ciroc and a stake in the Revolt TV network.

Following Diddy on the list is Jay Z in the No. 2 spot with a net worth of “only” $810 million. Similar to Diddy, Jay Z has a number of different revenue streams outside of music including the streaming service Tidal, champagne brand Armand de Brignac and entertainment company Roc Nation.

The moral of the story, kids, is you should all start your own record labels and drink fancy alcohol.
