Jay-Z is back on top. He tops the Forbes Hip-Hop list this year with a total of $37 million in earnings. Following him is Diddy with $35 million and Kanye with $15 million. Another big splash is Nicki Minaj who becomes the first female rapper to ever grace the list. Check out the top 20 after the jump.

Fueled by the tail end of his Blueprint 3 Tour and a vast portfolio of business interests, Jay-Z barely edged second-ranked Diddy—who raked in $35 million, roughly half of that total coming from a lucrative partnership with Diageo’s Ciroc vodka—but handily topped West, who earned $16 million. The duo is steaming ahead with plans for co-headlining tour starting this fall.

1. Jay-Z – $37 Million
2. Diddy – $35 Million
3. Kanye West – $16 Million
4. Lil Wayne and Birdman – $15 Million
6. Eminem, Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre – $14 Million
9. Akon – $13 Million
10. Ludacris – $12 Million
11. Wiz Khalifa & Drake – $11 Million
13. Pharrrell – $10 Million
14. Timbaland – $7 Million
15. Swizz Beatz & Nicki Minaj – $6.5 Million

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to
    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
    crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go
    back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!
