Dr. Dre About to be the Next Oprah!!!! He Made 5X More Than Beyonce in 2015!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey may have rapped that people “forgot about Dre a few years ago, but earning as much as he did this year, he’s going down in history in a major way and nobody will ever forget about him!!!!

Dr. Dre took home $620 million this year before taxes, thanks largely to that deal, making him the world’s top-earning musician of 2014. More remarkably, that number also marks the largest single-year haul of any musician, ever.

“It’s safe to say headphones is a good business,” said DJ Khaled, one of hip-hop’s top earners.

Dr. Dre’s payday gives him the widest margin in history between the first and second spots on our top-earning musicians list—half a billion dollars separate him from the No. 2 earner, Beyoncé, who pulled in $115 million. Her most lucrative year yet comes courtesy of her Mrs. Carter Show tour, a surprise album and endorsements with the likes of Pepsi and H&M.
