The mansion you said he bought for 4 million was bought for like 5 mil or so and he refurbished it with 6 mil. so what do you think?he shd sell it for 7 mil?NO. I wouldn't do that. He added nnsense to his house. he added a strip club,helipad, senseless pools and so on and the designers thought that was a great money maker for them
What do u think money is?Paper that grows on tree?WHy will coca cola buy vitamin water for 4 billion? That will even make the guy richer than oprah winfrey and b.e.t owner. Boy, be sure before you post please. Thank yo. Diddy is still the richest. He generates money geniously and doesn't buy senseless hummers and lamborghinis

The former drug dealer presides over the expansive G-Unit empire, which includes a record label (Lloyd Banks, Mobb Deep), apparel, ringtones, videogames and even a line of G-Unit street fiction books. The chiseled rapper also owns a small stake in VitaminWater; in June, Coca-Cola announced it would buy the brand for $4.1 billion. (His estimated $100 million take will be counted toward next year's Celebrity 100 list, following official consummation of the deal.) Recently listed his 50-room Connecticut manse, appraised at $20 million, on the market. He bought it for $4 million in 2003.

But I believe diddy still has more assets that both of them because jay-z got where he is by selling his companies while diddy still has all his companies intact. Fiddy's wealth is so impressive within so short a period
Well, until the ink dries on that deal between Coca Cola and Fifty, Diddy remains the richest. What with his Bad Boy Entertainment group which includes his record label and production company,(Bad Boy Records/Hitmen), his Sean John Clothing line, his restaurant chain (Justin's), his production deals with MTV, (that brought you Making the band among others), the guy is just churning out money faster than he can count it!
coca cola to pay fifty 400 million dolls for purchase of his 10 percent share in the company making his brand of health water
50-50 solution. This was concluded when coca cola agreed to buy the company for a sum of 4.5 billion dollars.
if paid this would bring fifty's net worth to a total of 500 million
[b][/b]Who said jay z cant rap, even though hes not one of my favourite artist, i went to his show but this guy is the best,
As at 2005, Rappr Moguls Jay Z was the Number 1 Richest Rapper while Diddy follows him, but 2006 it was Diddy, and talking about Master P being rich too, Master p is my favourite way too, he had 400 Million Dollars as at 1999/2000 Master P. seems to be recovering from the bankruptcy he filed a few years ago but not enough to be included on this year’s list. His latest business ventures are not lucrative enough at this stage.
Diddy has received an additional $6 million this year, generated from the sales of his cologne, bringing his overall wealth total to: $346 million. Jay-Z’s overall wealth total for 2006; is: $340 million.
Jay-z aint the richest neither is diddy. they are tying right now. we will know who is the richest at the end of the 1st quater.
Jay-z aint garbage and he can rap. if u like, hoes, bitches and poppin brains then go listen to some jibbs or game but if u want mature rap, listen to Jay-z's Kingdom Come. apart from reasonable doubt, i think kingdom come is another great album.
