Step aside Jay-Z, there’s a new king in town. On Thursday (September 19) Forbes shared its list of 2019’s highest paid hip-hop acts and Kanye West dethroned his mentor to secure the No. 1 spot!
As the outlet reports, the rapper raked in $150 million this year before taxes, alot thanks to his Yeezy shoe line expecting to top $1.5 billion in sales. Jay-Z came in second place with $81 million, and Drake rounds out the top 3 with $75 million.
Over the summer, Forbes published its list of this year’s highest paid celebrities and funny enough, Taylor Swift topped the list with a whopping $180 million and also possibly reignited her feud with West who she called him out as “two-faced” during a recent interview with Rolling Stone.
