November 29, 2012 · Posted in Business, news · 7 Comments 

Despite not releasing an album in over a decade, Dr. Dre takes the #1 spot in Forbes Highest-Paid Musicians 2012 List.  The super-producer surpasses rock star legends, pop artists and fellow rappers.

The 47-year-old hip-hop mogul earned $110 million based largely on his highly popular Beats by Dr. Dre headphones line.  He took in a reported $100 million pretax when handset maker HTC paid $300 million for a 51 percent stake in the company last year – big bucks!!!  He and his partners later bought back half of what they sold.

Also on the list are Rihanna at#12 making $53 million, Diddy tied with Katy Perry at #15 making $45 million and Beyonce and Jay-Z shortly after.  Check out the complete list below.
