Here Are Forbes 2018 Hip Hop Cash Kings, Who Made The Most Money This Year

By HHL JT

JAY-Z will earn more many than any other Hip Hop artist in 2018, ending Diddy's three-year reign atop Forbes Hip Hop Cash Kings list.

JAY-Z pulled in $76.5 million, mostly from touring and investments. Diddy was second with $64 million.

Rap vet Nas made his debut on the top 20 list at number 6.  But it had nothing to do with the 44-year-old rapping. Almost all the $35 million Nas pulled in was for his venture capital activities.
