Jay Z has seen off Sean Combs and Kanye West to top a list to find hip-hop's highest earner.
The rap superstar was ranked top of the chart, which was compiled by Forbes magazine, after earning $37 million (£22 million) in 2010.
Runner-up Combs earned $35 million ($21 million) last year, while Jay Z's The Throne collaborator West took third place with an annual sum of $16 million (£10 million).
According to Forbes editors, Jay Z's staggering income was thanks to the success of his world Blueprint tour and other business ventures.
Hip-hop stars Lil Wayne, Birdman, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Akon and Ludacris also snagged spots on the top 10.
