Forbes releases Hip Hop Cash Kings list,Dr. Dre tops list

Dr. Dre tops the highest-paid hip-hop artist list with $620 million in earnings. Forbes unleashed their annual Hip-Hop Cash Kings list today, and although Diddy topped the 2013 list last year, he's been dethroned by Dr. Dre in a big way. Of course, most of us knew this was coming as Apple buying out Beats Electronics put a sizeable amount of cash in Dre's pocket. The highest-paid hip-hop artists are broken down with an estimate of their earnings on this list. Dr. Dre is way ahead of the pack, with $620 million to his name ("the $620 million sum is also more than the remaining 24 names on the Hip-Hop Cash Kings list—combined," Forbes says). Jay Z and Diddy now tie for second place, each earning $60 million. Whereas last year we saw Nicki Minaj at #4, her spot has now been taken by another Young Money rapper, Drake, with $33 million. Nicki drops to #11 with $14 million earned. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis sky-rocket up the list to #5 with $32 million (for comparison, last year they clocked in at #15 with $9 million). Forbes can provide you with a more descriptive break-down of the cash, but if you just want to see the numbers look below. 1. Dr. Dre – $620 million 2. Jay Z – $60 million  2/3. Diddy – $60 million  4. Drake – $33 million 5. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – $32 million 6. Kanye West – $30 million 7. Birdman – $24 million 8. Lil Wayne – $23 million 9.
