Everyone says they’ve got a lot when it comes to the world of Hip-Hop, but who really has the most? ‘Forbes’ knows and is listing off the top earners in the genre for 2018. Any guesses, which MC is No. 1? Hov reigns supreme with $million! Fueled in large part by both his 2017 ‘4:44’ tour and this year’s On The Run II trek with wife Beyonce, Jay-Z’s total also includes revenue endorsements and The Carters’ recent album ‘Everything Is Love.’ One spot down and only a borough away, at No. 2 on this year’s tally is the Harlem native turned business mogul Diddy. In addition to heading the Bad Boy empire and Revolt TV, Mr. Combs earned $million thanks in large part to some hefty beverage endorsements like Ciroc vodka. From some O.G.’s to the new school, Kendrick Lamar holds it down for his generation at No.
3 with $58 million thanks to a combination of touring, record sales, streaming, publishing, merchandise, endorsements and other business ventures. Other big names making the list include DJ Khaled, Dr. Dre and Drake!
