Attention all hip-hop, rap loving babies, here are your highest-paid acts of 2018!
Forbes has added up the numbers and released the highest-earning hip-hop artists… The average is about $44 million over the past year.
Jay-Z returns to the top spot this year with a $76.5 million haul. This moolah is coming from his 4:44 tour, Everything Is Love (The Carters), and a stadium tour, On The Run II.
After topping our list three years in a row, Diddy falls into second place, which is the first time in three years… But hey, he is still doing just fine, he earned himself $64 million! This is thanks to the help of his beverage empire including Ciroc vodka, DeLeón tequila and Aquahydrate alkaline water.
And in third, our boy Kendrick Lamar! Kendrick’s touring and deals with Nike and American Express gave him a $58 million tally!
