Common makin’ that paper is reporting that Forbes has released their top hip hop cash kings of 2008.  The top is no real surprise, 50, Jay-Z, and Diddy.  This is the first time 50 has won, but it mainly has to do with that massive Vitamin Water sponsorship thing with Coca Cola.

The real news is our boy Common.  He’s made the list and is actually tied for 12th of the biggest earners in hip hop in 2008.  He may have only banked $12 milion (small potatoes compared to Jay-Z’s $82 million), but to put it in perspective that’s more than Jermaine Dupri made this year.

It’s kind of nice to see a good ol’ underground emcee starting to make some big money.  Frankly, I was a little bit surprised that our boy the Mighty Mos Def didn’t make it anywhere near the list.  I figured after a couple of tours and a big movie or two (Be Kind Rewind), he would have made a bigger splash.  But hey, at least someone made it!

  1. I have to show appreciation to this writer just for
    rescuing me from this type of crisis. As a result of researching through the search engines
    and seeing strategies that were not beneficial,
    I figured my life was well over. Existing without the
    presence of solutions to the problems you have resolved all through your good posting is a crucial case, as well as the ones that could
    have in a negative way damaged my career if I had not noticed your
    web page. That skills and kindness in taking care of a lot of things was vital.
    I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t
    discovered such a solution like this. I’m able to
    at this moment look forward to my future.
    Thanks so much for your high quality and amazing guide.
    I will not think twice to recommend your web sites to any person who should get
    guidelines about this problem.

    and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure.
