Dr Dre Is Forbes Cash King [VIDEO]

If you’re not already, you should listen to WBLK through some Beats by Dre headphones! It’s clear, it’s noise reducing and best of all, they look, feel and sound like money!

Former Hip Hop Cash Kings P.Diddy and Jay Z better Watch the Throne, cause there’s a new King in town. Dr Dre is still working on that Detox album, but in the mean time, he racked in some serious cash from the sale of his headphones Beats By Dre,  putting him on top of Forbes list of highest earners in Hip Hop!

Details inside. 


One day while having a casual meeting on the beach with Interscope chief Jimmy Iovine, Dr Dre talked about designing his own brand of sneakers. Jimmy said “Forget sneakers, let’s sell speakers”. Shortly after development, HTC came in a bought 51% of the company, leaving with Dr Dre with $110 million cash money!

This load of cash is more than double that of Forbes #2 Hip Hop Cash King. Sean Combs AKA Diddy, who makes his dough from Ciroc, Blue Flame Agency and Bad Boy Records.

Jigga slides down to #3 with $38 Million from his earnings from the Watch The Throne album, tour and ownership with the Brooklyn Nets, among other grand hustles.

There’s such a demand for these earphones, now there’s an entire store dedicated to selling them.

“Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine have built their careers on revolutionary and forward thinking decisions that formulate trends in music, popular culture and technology,” said Oliver Francois, president and CEO, Chrysler Brand. “Our goal in partnering with Beats by Dr.Dre is to revolutionize the expectations for audio quality in an automobile, establishing a new bar in sound that comes closer than ever before to replicating the recording studio sound of professionals like Dr. Dre and Jimmy for drivers of the new Chrysler 300S.”
