Jay-Z Is Named Richest Man In Rap!

He has one of the hottest women in the world, a career that’s in a league of its own and an empire that consists of everything from clothes to headphones, now Jay-Z has just been named the richest man in rap. Forbes has released their annual hip-hop cash king list, which breaks down the 20 top earners in the hip-hop world over the last year…

Leading the pack, for a consecutive time, is Jigga Man, with an estimated earning of $63 million in the last twelve months. HOV’s intake is more than double that of P Diddy, who came in second place with $30 million. The Bad Boy CEO had vowed to climb his way back to the top spot after Jay eclipsed him a couple of years ago. But with Jay doubling his rival’s earnings, it’s unlikely that anyone is going to overtake the ‘Run This Town’ rapper anytime time soon.

Here’s the the top ten:

1. Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter – $63m
2. Sean “P. Diddy” Combs – $30m
3. Aliuane “Akon” Thiam – $21m
4. Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Carter – $20m
5. Andre “Dr. Dre” Young – $17m
6. Christoper “Ludacris” Bridges – $16m
7. Calvin “Snoop Dogg” Broadus – $15m
8. Timothy “Timbaland” Mosely – $14m
9. Pharell Williams -$13m
10. Kanye West – $12m
