#1: Dr. Dre
Its not hard to imagine why Dr. Dre tops this list. Dre sold “Beats by Dre,” his headphone company, for $3 billion to Apple, Inc, which he had a 25% stake in before the time of sale. That’s a huge pay day. Not to mention the esteemed rapper has dropped a number of hits over multiple decades. The accumulation of all these accomplishments result in the biggest wallet in the hip-hop industry. Net worth: $780 million.
