Diddy has been the REIGNING King of Forbes’ annual TOP CASH KINGS of hip hop for the past 3 years, but NOT ANYMORE! Jay-Z has returned to the TOP SLOT raking in a staggering $76.5 million haul. The multifaceted mogul hit the road in support of his album 4:44 after welcoming twins with wife Beyoncé in 2017. This year, he’s kicking it up a notch with the launch of Everything Is Love, the couple’s first joint album, and stadium tour On The Run II.
Diddy is still a cash king coming in at number 2 with $64 million but still makes bank thanks largely to a beverage empire that includes Ciroc vodka, DeLeon tequila and Aquahydrate alkaline water. Kendrick Lamar rounds out the top three with a career-best $58 million tally while packing arenas from Los Angeles to London on his solo tour and as headliner of TDE: The Championship Tour. He’s also been cashing in on deals with Nike and American Express.
Drake SLIDES to #4 with 47 million while J. Cole ROUNDS out the TOP 5 with a career best, 35.5 million.

08. PITBULL – $32 MILLION
09. FUTURE – $30 MILLION
10. KANYE WEST – $27.5 MILLION
