Looks like mo' problems aren't in Diddy's future.

According to Forbes magazine, the "It's All About the Benjamins" rapper -- whose real name is Sean Combs -- is the wealthiest hip-hop artist currently alive.

With an estimated net worth of $580 million, the 43-year-old trumps fellow hit makers like Jay-Z and 50 Cent thanks to his ownership in Bad Boy Records and other non-musical ventures such as his Sean Jean clothing label.

Diddy's deal with Diageo's Ciroc also entitles him to eight-figure annual payouts and a nine-figure windfall of the already-successful brand is ever sold.

Meanwhile, Jay comes in as the second richest hip-hop star. Mr. Beyonce Knowles is reportedly worth a still-impressive $475 million with his involvement in the Roc Nation music label, Rocawear and Live Nation megadeals and partnerships with Duracell and Bacardi’s D’ussé Cognac.
