P Diddy has overtaken Jay-Z as the richest hip-hop artist, according to Forbes, with a net worth of $550 million.

The Bad Boys Records founder has numerous business ventures including Ciroc vodka – which saw a 122% sales spike last year, as well as his Sean John and Enyce clothing lines, his marketing firm Blue and a handful of tech startups, which have helped him amass a huge personal fortune.

Last year's richest hip-hop artist Jay-Z was left in second place with a net worth of $460 million thanks to his recent 'Watch the Throne' tour – which will come to the UK at O2 Arena in London on March 20, as well his lucrative deal with Live Nation, his 40/40 Club chain and cosmetics company Carol’s Daughter

The other artists featured in the Forbes top five are Dr Dre ($270 million), Birdman ($125 million) and 50 Cent ($110 million).

Dr Dre is rumored to be planning a tour with the hologram version of Tupac, which was unveiled for the first time at the Coachella Festival at the weekend.

2. Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter ($460 million)

Unlike his fellow Forbes Five members, Jay-Z still churns out music and goes on tour—most recently with pal Kanye West—adding to his considerable war chest. He sold his Rocawear clothing label for $204 million in 2007 and signed 10-year $150 million deal with Live Nation in 2008, and also holds stakes in the New Jersey Nets, his 40/40 Club chain, ad firm Translation, cosmetics company Carol’s Daughter and other businesses. (For more on his rise as a businessmen, check out Zack's Jay-Z biography, Empire State of Mind)

3. Andre "Dr. Dre" Young ($260 million)

Fittingly, the bulk of this super-producer’s wealth comes from headphones. In August, handset maker HTC paid $300m to buy a 51% stake Beats Electronics, the company founded by Dr. Dre and Interscope chief Jimmy Iovine in 2008. Sources say each owned a third of the company before the deal, placing Dre’s cut at $85 million after taxes. The agreement also values his remaining stake at $100 million, which could increase rapidly as the company continues to expan

4. Bryan "Birdman" Williams ($125 million)

The Cash Money Records cofounder would be higher on this list if he held sole ownership of his label, but he shares it with brother Ronald “Slim” Williams. The duo founded Cash Money two decades ago, inking very favorable $30 million distribution deal with Universal in 1998. The label’s value has soared with the success of rappers Drake, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne (who shares in the ownership of sub-label Young Money). There’s even more cash on the horizon—the label’s deal with Universal is up this summer, raising the prospect of a bidding war for the right to distribute Cash Money’s releases

5. Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson ($110 million)

The Queens-born rapper earned $100 million for his Vitaminwater stake in 2007, and then spent freely on cars and renovations to his Connecticut mansion, formerly owned by Mike Tyson. But a nice cushion remains from his back catalog, acting gigs and 50 Cent-themed videogames, books and clothes, as well as new headphone line SMS. Next up: an energy shot called Street King, which promises to feed hungry children—and 50’s bank account
