Black Excellence! Jay Z, Diddy and Dr Dre become richest entertainers on the planet!

The Black race is presently proud to be called ‘people of colour’ as black excellence escalates to an all time high!

Jay-Z, Diddy (Sean Combs), and Dr. Dre have topped Forbes list of richest Hip Hop artistes as Jay Z takes over from Daddy again.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With this, it seems Black Excellence has no plans of slowing down anytime soon. From the massive, record-breaking success of ‘Black Panther’ to the many successful business ventures of our favorite Black entertainers, the culture is thriving and it’s beautiful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On Thursday, Forbes released its annual list of the wealthiest hip-hop artists on the planet, and the top five entrants came as no surprise as it was very similar to last year’s list. However, there was a bit of a shift in the top two slots. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After catapulting his net worth from $810 million to $900 million through his Armand de Brignac champagne and D’Usse cognac, in addition to his of his nine-figure ownership stakes in Roc Nation and Tidal, Jay-Z has landed the top spot on this year’s list, dethroning business mogul, Diddy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, the CEO secured the No. 2 spot with the help of his interest in Ciroc and Revolt TV, increasing his network to $825 million. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In this year’s list, Dr. Dre held on to his No. 3 spot, but still increased his network form $740 million to $770 million. But, according to reports, Dre may be seeing an even bigger spike next year when he receives his Apple stock from his $3 billion buyout of Beats in 2014. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As the top three contenders for the wealthiest hip-hop acts on the planet, according to Forbes, the three Hip-hop moguls have also become the richest American musicians of any genre in history. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pulling up the rear of the Forbes Five list is none other than Eminem and Drake, who clicked a $100 million.
