Forbes recently released a list of the “Highest-Paid Hip-Hop Acts” for 2019.
Forbes Has Nicki Minaj Making MORE Money Than Cardi B — Fans Are Going CRAZY
The annual Forbes Hip-Hop list dropped this week and we got a glimpse of who the game’s top earners are. While it was interesting to see that Kanye West was holding on to the top spot, the big story that has everyone talking is the women’s placements.
Kanye West topped the chart with a reported $150 million. Jay-Z was second place with $81 million, followed by Drake ($75 million), Diddy ($70 million), Travis Scott ($58 million) and Eminem ($50 million).
The list continued with Kendrick Lamar ($38.5 million), Migos ($36 million), Childish Gambino ($35 million) and J. Cole ($31 million).
The first woman on the list was Nicki Minaj ($29 million) and right below her was Cardi B, with a reported $28 million.
Nicki Minaj, according to Forbes, is one spot higher than Cardi B. Remember when this was supposed to be Nicki’s down year? Well, that’s over. Of course, the news had Cardi reacting, saying the numbers were fake. Is she telling the truth or is this just sour grapes?
Whatever the case, the Barbz are celebrating and DRAGGING Cardi.
A full war is breaking out. See reactions below:

I think that’s Cardi biggest gripe with that Forbes list, Nicki still outdid her even while she was down!

Cardi has a 360 deal. Atlantic gets the majority of that money. Nicki gets to keep her endorsements and tour money. Forbes list runs from June to June. 🌚 Nicki “Flop Year” Outsold
