Jay-Z named the cash king of hip-hop

HollywoodNews.com: As Forbes has compiled their list of the top earners in hip-hop, Jay-Z finds himself at the top of the list for the third time in the last four years.

The rapper made about $63 million in the last 12 months due to his success with his tour, real estate investments and the Broadway production ‘Fela!,’ reports Hollyscoop.

He left the others in hip-hop far behind as second place went to P. Diddy who brought in $30 million. The other top spots went in the following order: Akon, Lil Wayne and then Dr. Dre.

Despite all of his success in the hip-hop industry, Jay-Z still finds himself behind his wife, Beyonce, when it comes to earning power. The singer brought in about $87 million in the last 12 months, leaving Jay-Z in her dust.
