We’re always interested and love to count other people’s money! They might have to soon call it Forbes’ Cash Kings and Queens List! Congratulations to Nicki Minaj for making her first debut on Forbes’ Cash Kings (Queens) 2011 - Hip-Hop’s Top 20 Earners list– a list usually dominated by male artist!
Below is Forbes’ Cash Kings 2011 list: Hip-Hop’s Top 20 Earners. These estimates include income from record sales, touring, digital downloads, films, merchandise sales, endorsements, books and other entertainment ventures; management, agent and attorney fees are not deducted. Earnings are calculated for the period from May 2010 to May 2011.
On August 8th, Jay-Z and Kanye West dropped their long-awaited collaboration, Watch the Throne. The album’s timing and title couldn’t have been more appropriate—the Empire State of Mind rapper is hip-hop’s top earner with $37 million in the past 12 months, claiming his fourth Cash Kings crown in five years; his partner-in-rhyme ranked third. – Forbes

As TMZ first reported, cops responded to the Palomar Hotel on July 12th after Nicki complained that some guy she knew hit her in the face with a suitcase.
TMZ has the audio from the 911 tape from the Nicki Minaj hotel fight last month in which you can hear a woman, referred to as “Nicki”, scream … “Look at what he did to my face!”
I was wondering why does she keep him around if he is abusive to her. But then again he might be her ghost writer…so she needs him and he needs her to make that gwap for him. SMH!!!!!!!!!!
