Lil Wayne, Birdman, Nicki Minaj & Drake All On The 2013 Forbes “Hip-Hop Cash Kings” List

Tue, Sep 24, 2013 by Daniel Mousdell

Forbes have released their 2013 Hip-Hop Cash Kings list and four artists from the YMCMB crew appeared in the top 11. Lil Wayne came seventh place on the list earning $16 million from revenue off his I Am Not A Human Being II album and his TRUKFIT clothing line.

The other artists from YMCMB on the list are Nicki Minaj at #4 with $29 million, Birdman at #5 with $21 million, and Drake at #11 with £10 million. That’s an amazing achievement for Nicki to be so high on the list, as well as being the only female on the list!

Last year, Weezy F Baby came #5 on the list earning $11 more million than he did this year ($27 million). You can view the top 11 earners from this year’s Hip-Hop Cash Kings list after the jump below.

1. Diddy ($50 million)
2. Jay Z ($43 million)
3. Dr. Dre ($40 million)
4. Nicki Minaj ($29 million)
5. Birdman ($21 million)
6. Kanye West ($20 million)
7. Lil Wayne ($16 million)
8. Wiz Khalifa ($14 million)
9. Ludacris ($12 million)
10. Pitbull ($11 million)
11. Drake ($10 million)

  • dalow

  • khosta

    @m-zee F Drake featured 1 ym artist in his album and that is Detail. Get your facts straight. Plus this doesn’t mean Nicki is richer than Wayne people, it means nicki made more money than Wayne this year. If ya wana see who’s richer google their networths and you’ll see that nicki aint even close to tune. “I’m so rich I go poor(pour) that champaign and don’t drink it” D5 got nice lines man “give that boy a mirror so he can watch his damn mouth” “glass house nigga, you see how I’m living” “the drugs got me so numb I can’t feel a shame.” “I dance with the devil in my dreams. When I wake up I still hear the same song”

  • little big kahuna

    some of y’all leave dumbass comments… @Jay510 this is not based solely on album sales, you dumb fuck. the man (birdman) has a lot of other business ventures that rake in that big money for him…and whatcha mean “that ain’t right”, you sound clueless as fuck with that statement. nigga is their boss, ofcourse he’s gonna make money off them.
    And to the rest of y’all talking bout “Nicki got more money then Weezy”, man STFU with that “air-head” shit… That list is about what they made THIS year. If you seriously believe Nicki is richer then Birdman, or Junior, you’re seriously DUMB.
    Anyway shouts to YMCMB

    • Riddlemediss

      She’s a digusting person… Teaching little girls to have their titties, giving lap dances and all this other nonsense!.. She’s a fucking and you need a new role model

      • Jennette Walker

        Teach ur kids its entertainment,,NOT A LIFE STYLE..DUHHH

        • Riddlemediss

          I don’t have kids… And you sound fucking stupid.. It’s not entertainment, it’s fucking trash.. And that’s reason niggas is running around sagging their pants, buying shit they can’t afford, shaking their Titties and all this other nonsense.. Just shut up bitch

          • Darius

            so if its trash why did u comment you could’ve kept on going about your day and it ain’t the reason for all of that saggingand titty shaking happened before Nicki and Wayne like if you gonna blame somebody blame the person who did it like no one told them to follow and have they ass out or they shirt down that’s their decision so stfu and stay of the page if u don’t support it ignorant ass

            • Riddlemediss

              I’m ignorant? You Fucking idiot!

              • Bitch shut the fuck up.Why are you hating?I’d think your the one who doesn’t have a Dad and whose Mom is a slut with how much fucking hate your giving.Or maybe you just have a dick up your ass?Is that it?Your just jealous because your a flat chested bitch that can’t jiggle their tits because you have none.Go back to sucking your Dads dick now.

            • Riddlemediss

              I’m a smart reasonable person and a realist.. So I’ll take the time to spread some real shit.. I can tell you’re a product of your home life.. Go listen to Lupe Fiasco or Lauryn Hill, then maybe you’ll smarten up and see that Fucking Hoodrats and drug addicts like Wayne and Nicki do nothing but pollute kids minds with sex, drugs and materialism.. But you’re a Fucking idiot, so I don’t expect you to understand.. What does your parents do for a living? Is your father around? Does your mom have a Facebook and she takes selfies with her cleavage showing?? Tell the fucking truth, cause you defending them is a tell tale sign of how you were brought up and your intelligence level… Just another ignorant nigga worrying about Jordan’s and other shit you can’t afford… Tell the fucking truth
