Diddy's a Has-Been, Still Worth $580 Million

Diddy is the richest has-been of all time.

There's something funny about money. Once you have a certain amount of it, those greenbacks just keep multiplying. You don't really have to do anything, except sit back and watch that money tree fruit up.

Just look at Diddy. He hasn't done anything in years, and he's still the richest dude in rap. He even created a band that totally flopped, but it made no difference. He makes the right investments, courts the right endorsers, and keeps the right company.

That's exactly how to top Forbes' "Hip-Hop's Wealthiest Artists 2013" and not even write any rhymes!

Fiddy has been absent on the scene for a while. He's knee-deep in his comeback, but he's still sitting pretty on all that money from Get Rich or Die Tryin'. And don't you remember how he started Vitamin Water? He sold it back in 2007 for boatloads. So, even if his acting career never takes off and his new release Street King Immortal doesn't go triple-platinum, it hardly matters. Plus, isn't he ghost-writing? It doesn't matter if you get the credit, just the residuals.
