Kanye West has surpassed Jay-Z to become the highest-paid person in hip-hop , Forbes reported.

West has made an estimated $150 million in 2019 almost double Jay-Z's $81 million, according to Forbes. The publication looked at pretax income from June 2018 to June 2019 before deducting fees for agents, managers, and lawyers.

Here's a look at how West has built and spends his multimillion-dollar fortune.
