Dr. Dre Is The Highest Paid Musician This Year With $110 Million!


No surprise here, with his “Beats” headphone line taking off, Dre still manages to be the highest paid musician this year according to Forbes.

Hip-hop superproducer Dr. Dre leads the pack this year with $110 million, thanks largely to his Beats headphone line. He collected $100 million pretax when handset maker HTC paid $300 million for a 51% stake in the company last year, at the beginning of our scoring period; he and his partners later bought back half of what they sold.
