Dr. Dre

With an $800 million net worth, Dre received the bulk of his earnings with the sale of Beats by Dre to Apple in 2014 for $3 billion. It will be recalled that Dre actually declared himself to be the first billionaire in hip-hop, but Forbes disagrees, as the business magazine said that his sale of Beats By Dre to Apple only got him about $500 million. Forbes added that with his formal involvement at Apple “seemingly wrapping up, Dre will likely need to get back on the festival circuit – or start a new company – if he’s to make good on his 2014 declaration.”
