Read Time:48 Second

American rapper, Kanye West became Forbes’ highest-paid hip-hop act for the first time in his career following the top 20 list for 2019 which was released on Thursday.

The list which charted pre-tax income from June 2018 through June of this year, had Kanye West whose Yeezy brand is expected to hit $1.5 billion in sales this year coming out on top with $150 million while Jay-Z took the No. 2 with $81 million

Kanye sat at No. 10 on the 2018 list with $27.5 million, but his impressive rise in earnings can be attributed to the success of Yeezy, his signature footwear collaboration with Adidas. Drake took the No. 3 spot on the list with $75 million. Diddy followed shortly behind at $70 million while Forbes newcomer Travis Scott brought in $58 million. Other hip-hop artistes that made the top 10 list include Eminem, DJ Khaled, Kendrick Lamar, Migos, and Childish Gambino.
