Drake's Club Paradise Tour Earns The Rapper A Spot On The

Drake secures the Number 19 spot on the "Top 50 Worldwide Tours" list thanks to his Club Paradise Tour.

On top of boasting quite the roster of artists, Drake’s Club Paradise Tour has just earned itself a coveted spot on PollStarPro.com’s “Top 50 Worldwide Tours” of 2012 list. Drake clenched the Number 19 spot on the list and subsequently became the only Hip Hop artist featured on the tour roundup.

According to SOHH.com, the Young Money artist earned a cool $40 million thanks to the Club Paradise Tour which featured special appearances from the likes of J. Cole, 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky, and Kendrick Lamar.

While the $40 million made during the Club Paradise Tour was enough to put Drake comfortably among the top 20 tour moneymakers, the rapper was still a ways off from Madonna, the top earner on the list, who made a hefty $296 million thanks to her tour.

Other artists featured on the “Top 50 Worldwide Tours” list include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber, and The Black Keys.

      Obviously Drake's the headliner and gonna get the biggest cut of the profits. What did you headline last year, your weekly trip to Kmart?

    Madonna's got grown up money
    • She not the boss
      Live Nation has her under contract, so all that tour money belongs to them. Jay Z has a similar deal with them.

    Madonna's been around since the 80's so of course she's going to be generating alot more money. $40 mill ain't bad though. Buys alot of Canada Dry.

      Even if he takes half that's still a good year.

    While he may not be your favorite rapper, you've gotta admit that Drake is one of the only rappers from his generation that's showing the potential to reach "mogul" (Hov, Diddy, etc.) status if he makes the right moves, signs the right artists... As Jay-Z put it, Drake's up next, see what he do with it.
