French Montana on being signed to Diddy & Bad Boy Records:

“I really feel real good that’s why I kept it here in New York. Why would I take my talent to South Beach? When I met with Puff and sat down and really spoke, he told me a couple of things and [he] never lied to me about nothing and always kept his word. It is what it is. It’s New York. I want to bring it back to New York.”


With a net worth of around $550 million, Diddy has been picked by Forbes as the front runner to become hip-hop’s first billionaire.

However, the Bad Boy CEO does have competition. Jay-Z ($450 million), Dr. Dre ($250 million), Birdman ($110 million) and 50 Cent ($100 million) are all in the running.

Birdman thinks he will beat Diddy to the Forbes 400 list.

“I think Young Money Cash Money would be the first billion-dollar brand in hip-hop,” said Birdman in an email message to Forbes. “We strong and growing every day as a brand and fast. Within the next few years we will be billionaires.”

Who do you think will reach a billion 1st?

Hip Hop Classic LP, Ready to Die was the debut album of  The Notorious B.I.G., released September 13, 1994 on Sean “Puffy” Combs’ Bad Boy Records. It served as the first release on the record label. Recording sessions for the album took place from 1993 to 1994 at The Hit Factory and D&D Studios in New York City. The partly autobiographical album tells the story of The Notorious B.I.G.’s experiences as a young criminal, referring to himself as “the black Frank White”. Ready to Die is his only studio album released during his lifetime; B.I.G. was murdered days prior to the release of his second album Life After Death (1997)

Ready to Die gained strong reviews on release and became a commercial success, reaching quadruple platinum sales. A Super Hip Hop Classic.

Forbes takes a look at the Top 5 wealthiest artists in the Hip Hop genre. Three of the people pictured above are on the list.

To narrow down the list Forbes went through an analyzing procedure. The following factors went into the decision making, “valuing current holdings, looking at past earnings, leafing through financial documents and talking to a bevy of analysts, attorneys, managers and other industry players to find the nitty-gritty details. We considered only performers, which is why hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons isn’t on this list.”

Well with that being said here is Forbes top 5 wealthiest hip-hop artists
