Yesterday Forbes released their annual Cash Kings List which is comprised of the highest-paid acts in rap. Drake not only made the list yet again, but he managed to move into the top three.

Last year Drake was #4 on the list, but due to touring and endorsements from Nike and Sprite he was able to move up one spot to #3. With earnings of $39.5 million, he sits in the top three with Diddy and Jay-Z.
According to Forbes:

“Rounding out the top three is Drake at $39.5 million, the best Cash Kings finish of his career. He played 50 dates during our scoring period, with a nightly average gross of nearly $1 million. Also padding his coffers: gold-certified surprise record If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late and endorsements for Sprite and Nike.”
