Jay-Z will always be one of the top earners in hip-hop, but for the first time he lost to his one-time partner.

Kanye West has come out on top with $150 million pretax income while Jay-Z sits at No. 2 with $81 million.

Here’s the rest of the list:

3. Drake (75 million)

4. Diddy (70 million)

5. Travis Scott

6. Eminem

7. DJ Khaled

8. Kendrick Lamar

9. Migos

10. Childish Gambino

The only female artists to make the top 20 are Nicki (12) and Cardi (13).

Cardi B was the youngest to make the list at age 26, but she wasn’t too happy with where she fell on the list.
