Another year, another edition of Forbes‘ annual list of the world’s highest-paid hip-hop acts. In what should surprise no one, Jay-Z and Diddy find themselves holding down the top two spots on this year’s list, which the publication unveiled today (Sept. 12). Kendrick Lamar, who executive-produced Marvel Studios’ Black Panther soundtrack earlier this year, grabs the No. 3 spot. Now, let’s take a look at the money-making exploits of these three superstars.

First up is Hov, who is usually always near the very top of this list. Over the last year, Hov has parlayed his 4:44 Tour and other enterprises into $76.5 million. Seeing as he’s currently traveling with his wife Beyonce for their On the Run II Tour, his cashflow should only increase.

Next up is Diddy, who topped Forbes‘ list in 2015, 2016 and 2017. This time around, Diddy has brought home $64 million, with his stakes in Ciroc and DeLeon tequila playing a big role in securing him this particular bag. Diddy might not have topped the list this year, but $64 million is definitely a great consolation prize.

Last but not least for the top three is K. Dot, whose Damn. Tour helped him bring in a whopping $58 million since last year. Forbes says K. Dot’s lucrative Nike and American Express deals played a massive role in his continued fortune-building. As should have been expected, Top Dawg Entertainment’s Championship Tour, which is a trek that finds K. Dot headlining, has also helped Kung Fu Kenny collect the big bucks. Salute.
