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.

He’s behind such powerhouses as U2, AC/DC, Bruce Springsteen, Britney Spears and his wife Beyoncé.

Check out the top 10 list below:

  1. U2 – $130 million
  2. AC/DC – $114 million
  3. Beyoncé – $87 million
  4. Bruce Springsteen – $70 million
