Among those much-talked-about movers & shakers who are collecting—or looking forward to collecting—towering stacks of Benjamins are Lil Wayne and his aptly named Young Money label; Republic overlord Monte Lipman, who’s getting his piece of the action; Scott Borchetta, who’s likely receiving Big offers for his label; and powerhouse writer/singer Lauren Daigle, whose commercial ceiling only the Lord knows.

We’re also deeply envious of the salary and bonus packages of Messrs. Bay-Schuck, Corson, Fleckenstein, Marella and Klaiman, since we struggle to get by on the spare change that falls out of the pockets of our bosses—you should see the mad scramble in the hallway that ensues whenever one of them walks by. We happily take American dollars.
