Jay-Z tops Forbes' rich list for Hip-Hop artistes

Forbes has released its annual list for The World's Highest-Paid Hip-Hop Acts 2018 and rapper Jay-Z has clinched the top spot. 
 
The New York native brought in an impressive $76.5 million pretax, due in part to his comeback album 4:44, subsequent tour, the release of Everything is Love with wife Beyoncé and their stadium tour On The Run II.
 
His impressive sum knocked fellow mogul Diddy from his three-year reign at number one. 
 
Diddy, the Bad Boy Entertainment CEO, is in second place with earnings of $64 million thanks to his expanding beverage line which includes Ciroc Vodka, DeLeon Tequila, and Aquahydrate alkaline water.
 
After signing off exclusive endorsements with Nike and American Express for his DAMN tour, Kendrick Lamar nabbed third place with $58 million.
 
Elsewhere, Drake trailed behind with $47 million and Nas with $35 million makes his first entry on the list.
 
DJ Khaled made $27 million, Travis Scott $21 million and Lil Uzi Vert $19.5 million to also appear in the top 20.
