no title

On Wednesday, Forbes revealed that Katy Perry was the highest-paid female musician of 2015, just beating her rival Taylor Swift – who took the No. 2 spot!

According to the same report, the Wildest Dreams singer's concerts have been grossing an average of $4 million per stop — and 1989 is on pace to becoming one of the most lucrative tours in pop history!

Jay-Z Tops Hip-Hop's Cash Kings 2010 List

Filed under: Music MinuteBeyonceKanye WestDiddyAkonJay ZLudacrisLil Wayne


Jay-Z needs to update his song 99 Problems, because it REALLY doesn’t seem like he has too many problems at all!

At earnings of $63 million for the past 12 months, Jay-Z gets the title of #1 Hip-Hop Cash King by far. The list is based upon numbers from several music industry sources, including Nielsen, Billboard, and Pollstar.

Jay-Z’s earnings derive from not only tremendous album sales, but also his earnings from his worldwide tour, the 40/40 nightclub chain, and his stake in the New Jersey Nets basketball team.

Trailing far behind Jay-Z is P. Diddy, who earned the #2 spot with $30 million through album sales, television and film roles, his liquor brands, and Diddybeats ear-bud sales.

Following behind Diddy is Akon at $21 million, Lil Wayne at $20 million, Ludacris at $16 million, Kanye West at $12 million, and 50 Cent at $8 million, who took a break from music work to take on film roles.

While she’s not a male Hip-Hop recording artist, Jay-Z’s wife Beyonce blew absolutely everyone out of the water this year, with $87 million in earnings! Pretty damn impressive…maybe they should give her an honorary place on the Cash Kings list just because she’s that awesome.
