Diddy could be hip hop's first billionaire
Forbes already named Sean "Diddy" Combs one of the World's Highest Paid Hip Hop Artists with a net worth of $580 million, and now, he could make hip hop history. According to The Source, the rapper, who has raked in $50 million last year alone, could become the hip hop industry's first billionaire. In a recent interview with Forbes, he commented on this possibility.
"I can't deny how humbling and how proud I am to be from Harlem, New York, to be from the inner-city and be on the Forbes list," Combs told the news outlet. "But it doesn't define me. The way I define my success is how many people I'm able to affect their lives in a positive way."
Hot New Hip Hop reported that he also discussed his aim to give back to his community, and to inspire others to do the same.
