Forbes have named Dr Dre the Highest Paid Musician for 2014 beating, Beyoncé and The Eagles who came in at no 2 with a gross of $115 million and at number 3 with $100 million respectively.
Even though Dre has barely dabbled with the actual making of music for a while, on the exception of co-producing Kendrick Lamar’s debut album; Good Kid m.A.A.d City and featuring on that banger; The Recipe, Dre credits his monetary success to the rise and rise of his Beats by Dre empire and that historical sale of Beats to Apple for $3 billion.
This year, Dre has taken home a cool $620 million (before taxes)…
Not bad hey?
