Kanye West is now the highest-paid hip-hop act in the world 👑
By 1VIBE • Issue #3 • View online
It’s officially Ye season baby! For the first time, Mr. West is the highest-paid hip-hop act in the world with an estimated $150 million in income this year according to Forbes. Right behind Yeezy is big bro Jay-Z ($81 million) and Toronto’s very own Drake ($75 million). If you didn’t know, now you know: the Yeezy hype is real but not everyone is a Kanye fan, just ask Taylor Swift. At 1VIBE we just hope that Kim wasn’t lying when she said Jesus is King drops on Friday, September 27. 🤞
A special shout-out goes to Toronto rapper Haviah Mighty who won the 2019 Polaris music prize on Monday with her latest record 13th Floor. Also big up to UK rapper Dave who won the 2019 Mercury Prize yesterday for his latest album, Psychodrama.
