It’s not just on the charts that Jay-Z reigns supreme. He’s also the highest earning man in hip hop.
The rap mogul netted $37 million last year, placing him at the top of Forbes’ Hip Hop Cash Kings list for the fourth time in the last five years.
A successful tour for “Blueprint 3” and lucrative business deals landed Jay at the top.
