T-Pain (tie) – $5 million20. B.o.B (tie) – $5 millionThis week Jay-Z and Kanye West unveiled their long-awaited collaboration,Watch the Throne. The album’s timing and title couldn’t have been more appropriate—theEmpire State of Mind rapper is hip-hop’s top earner with $37 million in the past 12 months, claiming his fourth Cash Kings crown in five years; his partner-in-rhyme ranked third.Fueled by the tail end of his Blueprint 3 Tour and a vast portfolio of business interests, Jay-Z barely edged second-ranked Diddy—who raked in $35 million, roughly half of that total coming from a lucrative partnership with Diageo’s Ciroc vodka—but handily topped West, who earned $16 million. The duo is steaming ahead with plans for co-headlining tour starting this fall.“Jay-Z and Kanye are hip-hop ambassadors,

Yeah I don't know if I believe this list. I have a hard time believing Drake only made $11M off Thank Me Later, touring, the checks I assume he got cut for features, etc.
