SEAN “PUFF Daddy” Combs has topped Forbes’ Highest-Paid Hip-Hop Artist list once again.

This year, Diddy made $130 million, putting him at the top of the list, despite not releasing a new album in the past year. However, the hip-hop mogul has benefitted from Ciroc Vodka, DeLeón Tequila, AQUAhydrate water, the Bad Boy reunion tour, and selling a portion of Sean Jean for an estimated $70 million.

Drake comes in behind Diddy at no.2, making $94 million. A bulk of that money came from his “Boy Meets World Tour,” band endorsement deals with Apple, Sprite, and Nike.

This year, JAY-Z comes in at No. 3 with $42 million. However, this doesn’t take into account his recent $200 million deal with Live Nation, which will be paid out over the next 10 years.
