Published On September 23, 2015 | By admin | FAME, Local & Worldwide News


Forbes has released their annual rundown of hip-hop’s highest paid entertainers. This year’s Hip-Hop Cash Kings list has familiar names but with different rankings. Diddy took the top spot this year with $60 million thanks to Sean John, Revolt TV, his water brand Aquahydrate and Ciroc vodka.

Jay Z came in the second spot earning $56 million over the past year due to touring with his wife, Beyonce, his Roc Nation management company and his deal with Armand de Brignac champagne.


Drake made the highest debut of his career on the list and even snagged a higher spot than Dr. Dre, who topped the list last year. Touring gave Drizzy the financial boost, grossing almost $1 million a night during his last tour. Sales from his surprise project, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, and endorsement deals with Sprite and Nike also helped him bring in some extra coins.
