Two Rappers Make Forbes’ List of “Top-Earning Dead Celebrities”

Forbes list of dead celebs with highest earnings

Forbes did a list of celebrities who have passed on but are still making big bucks and Nipsey Hussle and XXXTentacion made the list. The top earner for the year was Michael Jackson whose estate earned $60 million. Next on the list was Elvis Presley, Peanuts cartoonist Charles Schulz, golfer Arnold Palmer, and Bob Marley.

With the recent passing of Hussle and XXXTentacion, they made the list at numbers 10 and 11 earning $11 million and $10 million respectively. They fell just ahead of Whitney Houston’s $9.5 million. Surprisingly 2Pac and Biggie aren’t on the list but the numbers fluctuate year by year.
