Kanye Tops Forbes' List of World's Highest-Paid Hip-Hop Artists Of 2019

Looking like Jay-Z allowed his rival Kanye to take the crown this year on Forbes list of the highest-paid hip-hop artists in the world for 2019.

JAY-Z was #1 and Kanye actually #10 on last year's list. My analysis; West's Yeezy collaboration with Adidas (which is expected to rake in $1.5 billion in 2019), had to have sky rocketed him to the top of this year's rankings.

Here's the full list:

  1. Kanye West, $150 million
  2. JAY-Z, $81 million
  3. Drake, $75 million
  4. Diddy, $70 million
  5. Travis Scott, $58 million
  6. Eminem, $50 million
  7. DJ Khaled, $40 million
  8. Kendrick Lamar, $38.5 million
  9. Migos, $36 million
  10. Childish Gambino, $35 million
