Forbes released their 2019 Highest Paid Hip Hop Acts list and the rappers are reacting.

Kanye West came in at the No. 1 spot reportedly raking in $150 million, topping Jay-Z who came in at the No. 2 spot making $81 million.

Cardi B came in at the No. 13 spot with $28 million and Meek Mill at No. 15 with $21 million. They both claim those numbers are WRONG.
