According to Forbes magazine’s list of the highest paid musicians, Jay-Z is the highest paid rapper.
Landing at a very respectable number 6, Jay-Z raked in $63 million last year thanks to his investments in the 40/40 club, the New Jersey Nets, his Blueprint 3 album and tour, and a ton of other investments that we probably know nothing about.
