After he was the only Hip-Hop artist in Forbes’ “Highest Paid Celebrity list” last month, it is no surprise that Dr. Dre takes the top spot on the Forbes list of top Hip-Hop earners as well, thanks to his $100 million earning when phone maker HTC bought 51% stake in his Beats By Dre company in 2011. Diddy comes in at the 2nd spot mainly due to his Ciroc vodka. Jay-Z is third, thanks to his Watch The Throne tour with Kanye and business deals with Duracell and Budweiser.
