Forbes dropped a surprise on everyone today when they revealed that Kanye West was the highest-paid rapper of the year.
Propelled by all the hype beasts who crave absurdly overpriced Yeezys, ‘Ye made $150 million, almost doubling his crown mate JAY-Z, who finished second with $81 million. Drake ($75 million) Diddy ($70 million) and Travis Scott ($58 million) rounded out the top five.
Cardi B was 13th with $28 million, notably one million and one spot behind Nicki Minaj. It’s also $8 million and four spots behind her husband Offset’s rap trio Migos.
Cardi jumped on Twitter to throw a flag on Forbes’s accounting.
Where do Forbes be getting they numbers from cause they way off ?🧐

We assume she is suggesting Forbes shorted her salary.
But if she was tax-smart, she’d be suggesting the money mag overvalued her earnings.
