Face tattoos aren’t good for business. In order to make the cut on Forbes’ list of Hip-Hop Cash Kings 2018, you better be bringing in blue benjamins by the boatload, and your face better is the opposite of your criminal record– clean.
Forbes recently introduced the list of Hip-Hop Cash Kings 2018. The list includes some returning champions, with a few new faces taking over some of the top spots. This year Diddy lost his reigning 2017 spot to Jay-Z, while Kendrick Lamar swoops in to secure the third position.
Forbes’ list includes 20 of the most successful names in the hip-hop community, ending with Swizz Beatz in the #20 spot. Some of the artists featured on this list are easily believable, while some you’d never know was packing like that.
Coincidentally, those who hold the top 10 spots all have a common denominator, besides being filthy rich. As it turns out, all the finalists have managed to steer clear of tattooing their faces, which leads to a new theory.
Are facial tattoos what stops an artist from making the advancements necessary to be considered one of the highest paid in the industry?
Last year’s list only included one artist who sports an inked up mug in the top 10. That artist is Wiz Khalifa, and as you can see he doesn’t qualify this year. In fact, many of the artist who dabbles in the occasional face art, remain hovering around the list’s bottom tier or don’t qualify at all.
In a Statista survey, 92 percent of people over the age of 60 disagreed with face tattoos, 71 percent between the ages of 30 and 59 disagreed, and 53 percent between the ages of 18 and 29 disagreed with the phenom. Just imagine how many of these people are in the position to hire and broker deals.
In a world where so many factors can limit how much money you make, it would be unfair to place all the blame on tattoos, but it does play a crucial part. Many people refer to facial art as “job stoppers.”
If you think about it, would Jay-Z and Diddy have made it this far if they had unicorns sipping champagne printed underneath their right eye?
Take a look at the topmost paid hip-hop figures on Forbes’ 2018 list.

Dead Sperm Whale Found Washed Ashore with Pounds of Plastic Inside
A dead sperm whale washed up on the shore nearby Kapota Island, in the Wakatobi National Park. It was late Monday when the sea animal was found. What’s shocking was what environmentalists found inside the whale’s stomach.
Inside the deceased whale was up to 13 pounds of toxic waste. There were 4 plastic bottles, 115 plastic cups, 25 plastic bags, 2 flip flops, 1 nylon sack, and more than 1,00 other pieces of plastic items reportedly found.
Environmentalists worry that this is an example of the dangers of plastic pollution problems that particularly plague Asian nations. According to a recent study, plastic pollution will likely triple within the next decade if there’s no solution. And with about 10m tonnes of plastic garbage finding it’s way to the ocean each year, marine life faces severe trouble.
Environmentalists aren’t positive that the waste was what caused the 31- foot whale’s death. Nonetheless, the amount of debris found is still alarming.
Indonesia ranks as the second largest plastic polluter, next to China.
