His “Watch The Throne” partner Kanye West was close behind with $35 million.  Lil Wayne placed fifth with $27 million, while his Cash Money Records cohorts Drake, Bryan ‘Baby’ Williams and Nicki Minaj – the only female in the top 10 – all follow in sixth, seventh and eighth position, respectively.  Eminem and Ludacris round out the rest of the top 10.
