Dr. Dre Tops Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Kings 2012 List

Earning more than both the silver and bronze medalists (Diddy at No. 2, Jay-Z at No. 3) combined, Dr. Dre – thanks to the fact that Beats By Dre headphones are the new Blue Magic in the hood – easily outpaced every other earner on the Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Kings 2012 list. Meanwhile, Detox continues to sit on the shelf looking like that one person who sat in the corner alone because nobody wanted to talk to them during lunch period. In other words, rappers don’t get rich off mixtape sales; why should you expect any different? Here is the entire list; hopefully it’ll compel some of us to take the time off talking shit on the Internets and make our mothers proud… 1. Dr. Dre: $110 Million 2. Diddy: $45 Million 3. Jay-Z: $38 Million 4. Kanye West: $35 Million 5. Lil Wayne: $27 Million 6. Drake: $20.5 Million 7. ‘Shit: $20 Million 8. Nicki Minaj: $15.5 Million 9. Eminem: $15 Million 10. Ludacris: $12 Million 11. Pitbull: $9.5 Million 12. Rick Ross: $9 Million 12. Wiz Khalifa: $9 Million 14. Snoop Lion Dogg: $8.5 Million 15. 50 Cent: $7.5 Million 16. Swizz Beatz: $7 Million 16.
