Dr. Dre is cashin’ out. Forbes has released their annual list of highest paid celebrities and the good doctor is the only person from the world of Hip-Hop to make it. Dr. Dre comes in at a surprising number 5, thanks to his $110 million earning through Beat By Dre headphones. Most part of that sum comes from Beats’ deal with HTC last August where the phone maker paid $300 million to buy 51% stake in Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine’s company. Forbes also predicts that he may not make the list next year because this was a one-off deal.

Above is a commentary from the author. Check out the full list here.

With all that money, who really needs to make a Detox. Right Dre?
