One "Throne" that Jay-Z needn't watch is his fortune since it's growing by leaps and bounds. The rapper is once again sitting atop the Forbes Hip-Hop Cash King list for the fourth time in five years. Jay-Z raked in $37 million in the past year in order to nab this "Throne."
Jay's Watch the Throne partner Kanye West placed third, with $16 million in income. Diddy was the cheese in between the Jay-Z/Kanye West sandwich bread, collection $35 million.
With Watch the Throne landing and expected to be one of the biggest releases in hip-hop this year, Jay-Z and Kanye West may be #1 and #2 on this list next year. Congrats, gentlemen!
