Jay Z, Eminem And Drake, Listed On Billboards Top Money-Makers List

Jay Z Eminem And Drake Listed On Billboards Top Money Makers List
Billboard has published its list of the highest paid musicians of the year and the first Hip Hop artist on the 2014 edition is Jay Z at #9.

The publication reports Jay Z's total estimated revenue in 2014 at $22 million built up from $1.2 million in sales, just over $19 million from touring, and less than a million dollars each in publishing and streaming. Notably, Beyonce comes in just a few spots down the list at #12 with an estimated revenue of $19.6 million. Beyonce put up higher dollar amounts than her husband in each of the categories except touring where she earned an estimated $14.8 million.

Eminem clocked in at #20 with the "highest streaming royalties on this list" and the second highest publishing, according to Billboard. Thanks to a joint-tour with Rihanna, Em netted $5.2 million in touring and on his own made just over $4 million from music sales.

Despite not releasing an album last year, Drake found himself at #21 with an estimate total revenue of $10.6 million, largely built up from $7.7 million in box office sales.

Rihanna managed to make the list herself at #32 after showing up at #20 last year.
