Forbes announce the hip hop “Cash Kings” list – NJNews

Forbes Magazine always keeps an eye on who is makin’ all the loot. They release a list each year of the top earners in hip hop, amongst other categories, and let you see just how much these fuckers are bringing home. I guess Dr. Dre was smart to get into the headphone game, because even without having any albums in stores, he tops the list by doubling over the number two spot, Diddy. How is Rozay all the way down at 12? He’s the hardest working man in hip hop. I guess it’s time to rethink the whole “free music” thing. Check out the full list. No real surprises on here except that Mac Miller is getting money. Who’s listening? Hit the read more section for the full Top 20 list.
