Jay-Z tops Forbe’s Hip Hop rich list… 
Jay-Z is having the best week ever, with Watch the Throne being predicted to launch at No. 1 on the charts, he also reigns at the top of Forbes’ annual Cash Kings List.
 
The magazine has declared the Roc Nation mogul as hip-hop’s top earner with R264 million made in the past 12 months. He tops the list for the fourth time in five years thanks to tour sales, his ongoing R1 billion Live Nation deal, and stakes in the New Jersey Nets and 40/40 club.
Following in close second is hip-hop impresario Sean “Diddy” Combs, who banked R250 million in the past year with roughly half of his earnings coming from Ciroc vodka.
Jay’s partner in rhyme Kanye West claims third place, returning to the top three for the first time since 2009. Lil Wayne ties with his YMCMB comrade Birdman for fourth (R107 million), Eminem, Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dogg rack up R100 million each, and Wiz Khalifa, Pitbull, and B.o.B are among the new entries.
Nicki Minaj becomes the first female to make the list at No. 15 with R46 million. The Young Money diva burst onto the scene with her platinum debut Pink Friday, tours with Lil Wayne and Britney Spears, and endorsement deals with M•A•C Cosmetics and Casio.
