Diddy comes in eighth with $825 million. Tiger Woods is tied for ninth with $800 million. According to Rolling Stone, Jay Z's net worth has risen $90 million in the last year because of his stakes in various companies, including entertainment giant Roc Nation, streaming service Tidal and liquor companies Armand de Brignac and D’Ussé. He’s now ahead of fellow rapper Diddy, who previously held the top music spot on the list.
