Jay-Z and Kanye West Sit On Top of Forbes’ Hip-Hop Artists Money List

Jay-Z and Kanye West consider themselves the kings of the rap game. Not only have they said as much with the title of their newly released album — “Watch the Throne” — but they take every opportunity to brag about their private jets, their cars, etc.

Well it turns out they are justified. Forbes has released its list of the past year’s top earners among hip-hop artists — never mind that Jay-Z is definitively a rapper — and Jay and Kanye come in at first and third respectively.

Sandwiched in between? Sean “Diddy” Combs.

Jay-Z laps everyone but Diddy, raking in $37 million to Diddy’s $35 million. West accrued a paltry-in-comparison $16 million.
