For the second year running, Sean "Diddy" Combes has come out on top of Forbes's annual 'Hip Hop Cash Kings' list, having earned a preposterous $62 million over the past year. Diddy's off-the-scale wealth can mainly be attributed to non-music ventures, including a lucrative deal with Ciroc vodka — a partnership that could potentially net the Bad Boy Records founder a nine-figure sum should he ever decided to sell his shares — and his TV station REVOLT.

Second in the list was Jay Z, who, despite a relatively quiet year without a tour or new album, still managed to bank an impressive $53.5 million. Dr. Dre came third —  flush from his megabucks Beats deal with Apple — with $41 million, while the new guard in Drake ($38.5 million) and Wiz Khalifa ($24 million) rounded off the top five.

Elsewhere in the list, Kendrick Lamar squeezed into the top 10 at nine: his fortune estimated at somewhere in the region of $18.5 million. That meant he eclipsed Kanye West ($17.5 million) and A$AP Rocky ($13.5 million), who took 11th and 13th place respectively.

Find the full top 10 below, and head over to Forbes for the rest of the list.
