Nicki Minaj is on top of her game!

The Young Money songstress landed at No. 4 on Forbes’ 2013 ‘Hip Hop Cash Kings’ list, topping her record label bosses Birdman and and Lil Wayne.

“Two years after becoming the first female artist to make the Hip-Hop Cash Kings list, Minaj is nearing the top thanks to income from touring, steady music sales, a lucrative American Idol gig and endorsements with Pepsi and others,” Forbes reprots. “She also owns a stake in Myx Fusions Moscato, a sweet wine now making its way into her music videos and rap verses. These deals rank Minaj far higher than any of her male Cash Money labelmates, including Drake, Lil Wayne, and YMCMB head honcho Birdman.”
