Posted on August 18, 2010

#1. Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter – $63m
#2. Sean “Diddy” Combs – $30M
#3. Aliuane “Akon” Thiam – $21M
#4. Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Carter – $20M
#5. Andre “Dr. Dre” Young – $17M
#6. Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges – $16M
#7. Calvin “Snoop Dogg” Broadus – $15M
#8. Timothy “Timbaland” Mosley – $14M
#9. Pharrell Williams – $13M
#10 Kanye West – $12M
#11. Aubrey “Drake” Graham – $10M
#12. Clifford “T.I.” Harris – $9M (tie)
#12. Kasseem “Swizz Beatz” Dean – $9M (tie)
#14. Marshall “Eminem” Mathers – $8M (tie)
#14 Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson – $8M (tie)

So much for “Forbes 1,2,3.” Damn talk about how the mighty have fallen, I knew 50 Cent wasn't pulling in anything near the amount he did the 2 years prior but damn. The list over all is still not so bad considering the fact that 2009 was such a rough year for everyone not just in music. Not surprised Akon is number 3 though, when you have artists like Lady Gaga signed to your label you don't really have to do much.

Jay is gonna pay more in than the total earnings of any other rap star besides second-ranked Diddy.

Hova is still King, and wifey made even more money than he did. Men lie, women lie but numbers don't.
