Men Lie, Women Lie: How Much Baby Money Did Jay-Z Make In The Last 5 Years?

by DG

In 2007 FORBES released the first ever Hip-Hop Cash Kings list, an annual accounting of hip-hop’s top earners. The top three on the list Jay-Z, 50 Cent and Diddy-created a song called “I Get Money (The Forbes 1-2-3 Remix)” to mark the occasion. Five years later, the same trio has amassed the most cash in the past half-decade. Jay-Z leads the pack with $251 million, thanks largely to a bevy of deals including a 10-year, $150 million pact with Live Nation (for more, see my Jay-Z biography Empire State of Mind). Next up is 50 Cent at $216 million, roughly half that sum coming from the sale of his VitaminWater stake in 2007. Diddy rounds out the top three at $158 million, boosted in recent years by his lucrative Ciroc vodka agreement.
