Today Forbes released their list of the highest paid hip-hop artists and topping the lists for the first time is Kanye West.

Ye’s finances largely benefitted from his Yeezy brand, which Forbes projects will hit the $1.5 Billion mark.

Remember three years ago when Kanye West was publicly begging Facebook’s Marc Zuckerberg for money on Twitter after he was $53 Million in debt? Never give up on your dreams, kids.

Just behind Mr. West are JAY-Z, Drake, Diddy, and Travis Scott. The full list is available here.
