Jay-Z tops Forbes Hip-Hop Rich List

-- Michael J Morsella - Celebrity News Service Contributor

New York, NY, United States (Celebrity News Service) - Rapper Jay-Z has topped the Forbes Hip-Hop Cash King list yet again raking in a healthy $37 million over this past year.

Jay-Z tops the list for the fourth time in five years with Diddy coming in a close second with $35 million, and Kanye West coming in a distant third with $16 million.

"Fueled by the tail end of his 'Blueprint 3' Tour and a vast portfolio of business interests, Jay-Z barely edged second-ranked Diddy-who raked in $35 million, roughly half of that total coming from a lucrative partnership with Diageo's Ciroc vodka-but handily topped West, who earned $16 million," Zach O'Malley Greenberg's article in Forbes stated about the list.

"Jay-Z and Kanye are hip-hop ambassadors," Steve Stoute, chief of branding firm Translation and author of The Tanning of America added.

Jay-Z and Kanye West's collaboration album "Watch The Throne" is set to be released on August 12th after being released digitally on August 8th.

The power pair will be going on a co-headlining tour this fall.
