Jay-Z and Kanye West has dropped their long-awaited collaboration ‘Watch the Throne’, a week ago. However, the album is timing and the title could not have been more appropriate the Empire State of Mind rapper is hip-hop’s top earner with $37 million in the past twelve months. He has also claimed his fourth Cash Kings crown in five years and his partner-in-rhyme ranked 3rd.

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 he topped Kanye West who has earned $16 million. However, the dup is steaming ahead with plans for co-headlining tour starting this fall.

Steve Stoute, the chief of Translation Marketing and author of The Tanning of America has said that Kanye West and Jay-Z are the hip-hop ambassadors. He also told that they have brought the art from around the world and they have taken production and everything to the next level. Now, they have got a chance to grow with their global audience.

The ‘Watch The Throne’ rappers are not the only ones who making millions by going global. Lil Wayne has released a new album and has performed a slew of shows from Buffalo to Vancouver, grabbing $15 million over the past year.
