Man, I wasn’t gonna post this list. Then I remembered that I posted last year’s list. Then I looked at the list and got sad. I remembered I’m broke. But besides that I’m good. Back to the list: Comparing 2008’s to 2009’s. Akon moved up 8 spots. T-Pain, Flo Rida, will.i.am, & Young Jeezy debut on the list. Jermaine Durpi, Lil’ Jon, & Chamillionaire drop from the list. Eminem made more money than Dr. Dre. And oh yea, Jay-Z is back on top followed by Puffy and Kanye. Personally, I would be happy coming in at #273.
