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.
