When you’re nosey like us, you want to know who’s making the most money, and how much they’re making.
Forbes always comes in clutch with the lists of how much bacon celebrities are bringing home.
Their latest list includes “The World’s Highest-Paid Hip-Hop Artists of 2017,” and there are little surprises here.
Coming in at number one is friend to the show Sean “Diddy” Combs. Of course, this isn’t Puffy’s first time on the Forbes list. This year, Puffy earned $130 mill. We’re sure he’ll be celebrating with some Ciroc tonight.
Drake has made headlines this year, and he came in at number two on Forbes’ list, earning $94 mill. Drake was the most streamed artist over the past 12 months.
Twins don’t slow Jay-Z down from bringing in the cash. He came in at number three this year earning $42 mill. Jay-Z’s 4:44 tour is kicking off on October 27th in California.
It wasn’t by chance that 24 year-old Chance the Rapper earned $32 mill this year. He is number five on Forbes’ list. Alongside his music, Chance also cut deals with Apple and Kit Kat. Cha-Ching!
Major key alert! Friend to the show DJ Khaled grossed $24 mill this year, and was in the top ten of the 20 person list. Between his “Wild Thoughts” hit with Rihanna earlier this summer and rumors that he’s joining Puffy on a new singing competition, it looks like DJ Khaled will continue to score BIG. They can’t stop Khaled from winning. We like that!
