Move over Jay-Z, there's a new king in town. On Thursday (September 19) Forbes shared its list of 2019's highest paid hip-hop acts and Kanye West dethroned his mentor to secure the No. 1 spot.

As the outlet reports, the rapper raked in $150 million this year before taxes — thanks in part to his Yeezy shoe line expecting to top $1.5 billion in sales. Jay-Z came in second place with $81 million, and Drake rounds out the top 3 with $75 million.

Over the summer, Forbes published its list of this year's highest paid celebrities and funny enough, Taylor Swift topped the list with a whopping $180 million (and also possibly reignited her feud with West whe she called him out as "two-faced" during a recent interview with Rolling Stone)

Twenty-six-year-old Cardi B comes in at 13 with $28 million, making her the youngest artist on the list and one of only two females, along with arch nemesis Nicki Minaj (No. 12, $26 million).
