It’s that time of year again, when Forbes reveals the coveted Hip-Hop Cash Kings list.
LIST: The Forbes Five: Hip Hop’s Wealthiest Artists
Over the past few years, the Cash Kings list has been a back and forth battle between Jay-Z and Diddy, but this year, Dr. Dre tops the list as Forbes’ ultimate Cash King.
Although Dr. Dre hasn’t released an album in over a decade, Dr. Dre’s Beats by Dre headphones have landed him in the number one spot.
This year’s Cash Kings list is comprised of the usual money makers. Sean “Diddy” Combs and Jay-Z clock in at number two and three, while Kanye West isn’t far behind with an estimated $35 million, which lands him in the final four.
