Rappers Who Got Dropped From The Forbes List

It’s an annual tradition to care a bunch about the Forbes list of highest paid rappers. It’s supreme bragging rights! One thing that’s interesting is seeing who stays on years to year and who loses their spots.

This year had six rappers get cut, however, the 20th spot in 2018 was $15 million as opposed to $11 million last year, so all in all this is probably good news.

Well…maybe not for the rappers in question.

Take a look…
