Jay Z Dethrones Diddy At The Top Of Forbes’ List Of Wealthiest Hip Hop Artistes

Published

on

American rapper, Jay Z has dethroned music executive, Sean “Diddy” Combs to rank as the world’s wealthiest hip-hop artist.

Thanks to heady champagne and cognac investments, according to data released by Forbes magazine on Thursday.

The 48-year-old Hard Knock Life rapper and music mogul increased his estimated net worth in 2017 to $900 million, up by $90 million from the year before in the annual list compiled by Forbes.

Combs, 48, who had been hip-hop’s wealthiest artist since Forbes first released the list in 2011, grew his estimated $825 million fortune by a tepid $5 million last year, Forbes said.

The primary driver of Jay Z’s wealth came from investments in luxury champagne brand Armand de Brignac and D’Usse cognac, while lukewarm trends in the vodka and cable television sectors weighed on Combs’ investments in Diageo’s Ciroc vodka and the TV network Revolt, Forbes said.

Jay Z’s tenure at the top spot may be short lived. Hip-hop’s third-wealthiest figure, Dr. Dre, is expected to add a nine-figure windfall of Apple stock to his estimated $770 million wealth this summer, Forbes said. Apple acquired Dr. Dre’s headphone and audio speaker company Beats in 2014.

Drake and Eminem rounded out the latest top five, tied with an estimated $100 million fortune each.

Forbes compiled the list by valuing major assets, examining financial documents and consulting analysts, attorneys, managers and other industry players.

Wizkid, Olamide, Tiwa Savage – Slimcase Has Helped Your Careers This Year. My Thoughts.

Slimcase has worked hard and diligently to become a force on the music scene. With no popularly known or independently released music single(s) to his name, he rode on the tide of musical collaborations to attain an aptly fitting title of the new voice of the streets. With the release of his debut music single for the year 2018 titled “Otunba lamba he would be to hoping to tarry longer the ‘Shaku Shaku’ trend which he co-originated, especially now that the potency of the music charm seems to be waning.

@jimancipation – Part of the success of the Shaku Shaku trend can largely be attributed to Slimcase. Not just him alone though but we can unanimously agree that he played a very influential role in commercializing and also getting people to accept the sound. In the process, he had succeeded at strategically penetrating the music street populace and the thing that continues to bust our heads about what Slimcase did was the fact that he had no music single to his name (atleast at the time). He rode on the tide of music features using his unusual style and application of the Shaku Shaku sound which later put him in the good graces of music icons Wizkid and D’Banj. So for the while it lasted, Slimcase was on a roll and enjoying his title of new ‘voice of the streets’.

With every artiste hoping on the band wagon of what was in vogue, Slimcase was the star factor needed to catch the audience attention and otherwise make the song hit. Being that he had finally found his industry big break, it was only logical that he would continue to cash out on the influence of these music features. Still, we wanted the genius of only the lamba master on a full-length track, which however seemed far-fetched at that time, so we made do with what he could give while earnestly anticipating his raved link-up with Starboy. But as it is now, it appears that the original trend setters seem to be done with this Shaku Shaku thing.

Wizkid and Olamide particularly were the biggest benefactors of this vibe. They milked the life out of it – for the while it was the intoxicating sh!t –  but are now back to making the kind of music they became popular and madly celebrated for. Of course the Shaku Shaku trend wasn’t going to tarry any longer; when the originators put in the initial work and then went a chilling? The only thing left now is the fact that you can do the ‘Shaku Shaku’ (dance) to any song as is the case with Mayorkun’s Bobo and MC Galaxy’s Fine Girl. They however do not have the musical vibe, which is the debate here. Slimcase and his co-horts should have done better to sustain the trend, which is why I think having to drop ‘Otunba Lamba’ at this point is a late call of action. I think it is a desperate attempt to keep alive and plausibly salvage whatever’s left of an eluding trend. Especially now when songs like Fake Love, Assurance, Kana and Jogodo are topping the charts, buttresses my point on how much we have gravitated away from the Shaku Shaku vibe.

The other part is that ‘Otunba Lamba’ shows Slimcase at his usual best. Yes it is his best of course, but it has now become his usual. And that’s not so much a good thing giving the situation of events right now. We can’t settle for usual anymore because we’re already moving on from it, which alludes to the fact that the Shaku Shaku trend is going, and it is going fast (let the world cup just end first and you’ll finally see what I’m talking about). So regardless of how this new jam bangs hard, we just cannot stay oblivious to the fact that this Shaku Shaku seloquesence is gradually being relegated to that place where it becomes another point of curation in the historic timeline of Nigerian music activities, unless Slimcase and his co-horts have more (than just Shaku Shaku) to give.
