Diddy, Jay Z & Nicki Minaj Make Top 5 Of Forbes Cash Kings List

by Yohance Kyles (@HUEYmixwitRILEY) September 25th, 2013 @ 6:55am
Sean Diddy Combs

(AllHipHop News) Forbes is back with its annual Hip Hop top earners list. To no surprise the heads of Bad Boy and Roc Nation took the top two spots respectively. Diddy landed at #1 with $50 million earned between June of 2012 to June of 2013. After leading the way in the highest earning couple in entertainment list with his wife Beyoncé, Jay Z came in right behind Diddy on the Hip Hop Cash Kings tally with $43 million.

There was one “Cash Queen” that brought in a lot of dough over the last year. Nicki Minaj broke into to the top five with $29 million. She followed Dr. Dre at #3 with $40 million. Nicki’s Cash Money boss Bryan “Birdman” Williams raked in $21 million for the #5 spot.

Independent artists made a mark on the revenue side during those 12 months as well. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (#14) rode their two Billboard chart topping singles and platinum selling album The Heist to $9 million. Veteran emcee Tech N9ne (#18) totaled $7.5 million from his indie label Strange Music.

Really Questlove??? The bulk of that must come from his work as the musical director on Jimmy Fallon.

Who is Tech N9ne? Confused

I like Nicki, but she wont be that high on the list next year.  That American Idol money put her up. 
 
And as many business ventures that Jayz has from his Barclays Center, Team ownership, Sports Agency, Record Label, Clubs/restaurants, Ace of Spades, its funny that he still cant catch up to Diddy the Devil.  Ciroc is a goldmine & niccas love their likkas

he's been a struggle rapper for the past decade.  Kinda well known & respected, but never really popped off with a BIG HIT.  So idk what he did that pushed him on this list.  He is in the same lane as Joel, joe Budden, Jay Electronica & dem,  imo

nah techn9ne is far from a struggle rapper. he's actually the biggest independent artist in hip hop and has been for over a decade iirc. he's also brings in the most tour money outside of a few rappers at this juncture. dude is a legend and being independent and CEO of his own label, everything he makes is straight profit.

1)  How did Diddy do it?   I mean,  what else is making money besides Ciroc and his label?
2)  Why is Rick Ross so low?
