Beats make Dr Dre hip hop top earner last year

Beats make Dre hip hop's cash king

Superproducer Dr Dre has beaten Sean 'Diddy' Combs and Jay-Z to the top of Forbes magazine's Hip-Hop Cash Kings list with earnings of US$110 million in the past year.

Dre raked in the whopping sum between May, 2011, and May, 2012, thanks largely to sales of his Beats By Dre headphone accessories, leaving Combs trailing behind in a distant second place, with US$45 million.

Jay-Z banked US$38 million to land third, while his Watch The Throne collaborator and good pal Kanye West was close behind with US$35 million.

Lil Wayne placed fifth with US$27 million, while his Cash Money Records cohorts Drake, Bryan 'Baby' Williams and Nicki Minaj - the only female in the top 10 - all follow in sixth, seventh and eighth position, respectively.

Eminem and Ludacris round out the rest of the big 10 earners.
