Kanye West Passes Jay-Z and Drake As Highest-Paid Rapper For First Time Ever
Kanye West has landed the coveted top spot as the world’s highest-earning rapper on the Forbes 2019 list of the best-paid acts in hip-hop for the very first time.
Last year, Jay-Z held the decadent title for highest paid hip-hop artist. The rap mogul has since been out-earned by his old friend Kanye, who jumped from 10th place with $27.5 million in 2018 to $150 million in pretax income.
West owes most of his success to his Yeezy sneakers which yielded over $1.5 billion in sales in 2019. He recently announced the 2020 Yeezy Foam Runner, which critics have ridiculed on social media for looking a lot like Crocs. – Source
