Diddy tops the annual Forbes “Cash Kings” list of the world’s Highest-Paid Hip-Hop Artists.

The rapper-mogul earned an estimated $50 million in the past 12 months, according to the outlet, enough to put him ahead of Jay Z ($43 million) and Dr. Dre ($40 million).

Forbes calculates its rankings by looking at “income from touring, record sales, publishing, merchandise sales, endorsements and other ventures” between June 2012 and June 2013.
