Meek Mill and Cardi B say Forbes’ highest-paid rappers numbers are incorrect
They want receipts.
Following the announcement of the highest-paid hip hop acts, there are some people who question the validity of Forbes’ list.
While on Twitter, Cardi B and Meek Mill mentioned that the information is incorrect. In addition to that, the Philly rapper stated that Forbes must’ve taken a look at the wrong account. “Where do Forbes be getting they numbers from cause they way off,” Cardi asked her Twitter followers. Meek added, “The Forbes got our accounts f–ked up lol ….”
As for the list, Forbes dubbed Kanye West as the highest-paid hip hop act this year with a total of $150 million pretax income. JAY-Z came in second with a total of $81 million. As for Drake, he has earned $75 million, which allows him to fall right behind the Brooklyn emcee. On the other hand, Meek Mill came in at No. 15 with $21 million. Cardi B, who is the youngest act mentioned, landed at No. 13 with a total of $28 million.
This year marks the first time that Kanye West has found himself at the top. While posting on Twitter a while back, Kim Kardashian West revealed how proud she is of her husband.
“I watch how hard he works as he puts his soul into every idea & product that he creates. It’s of no surprise to anyone who works w Kanye that he has been able to turn millions of $ in debt into a billion-dollar empire in only 4 years – 100% on his own terms while owning it 100%,” Kardashian said on Twitter. “He inspires me every single day and I’m so happy that he is getting the recognition and credit that he deserves. @Forbes,” Kim wrote.
By the end of this year, West’s YEEZY brand is projected to make $1.5 billion in sales. Check out Meek Mill and Cardi B’s reaction to Forbes’ list below.
