DR DRE THAT GRAPE JUICE Dr. Dre And Nicki Minaj Impress On Hip Hop Cash Kings List

Though recent years have seen its mainstream popularity decline, Hip Hop remains an all too lucrative affair for its major players.

Indeed, with the likes of Jay Z, Dr. Dre and Nicki Minaj successfully turning their respective causes into a bankable brands, Forbes has listed their Top 15 Hip Hop Cash Kings.

2. Diddy – $45 million
3. Jay-Z – $38 million
4. Kanye West – $35 million
5. Lil Wayne – $27 million
6 Drake – $20.5 million
7. Birdman – $20 million
8. Nicki Minaj – $15.5 million
9. Eminem – $15 million
10. Ludacris – $12 million
11. Pitbull – $9.5 million

Kudos to all listed.

Especially Ms.Minaj who comes in as the only female on the list and Dre whose recent endeavors will sure to see him enjoy similar placing next year.

The way we see it, despite some of the acts listed claiming the given figures are inaccurate, the tally is a firm reminder that one doesn’t have to score multiple #1 singles or enjoying record breaking sales figure to pull in the pesos… if they’re innovative in their approach.

But you tell us…

What do you make of the list?

    You can’t even be happy for your fav without bringing other females in the mix. They’re new artist, so of course they won’t be on the list.

    Nicki Minaj posted on here twitter that this is inaccurate. @ROmanZolanski tweeted “Nicki Minaj the ONLY female on the Cash Kings List” and Nicki replied ” that’s inaccurate”.. So check your facts because even Nicki is NAY SAYING it. If you don’t believe me, check @RomanZolanski’s timeline on twitter and it will shut you up L____________________________ (seat) for the false “journalism”

    I am proud of nicki and what she has done in her career from winning awards, to being a voice over for ice age, to her getting a pepsi deal and having that commercial play on my tv 24/7 til this day. OH! And we can’t forget about her shoe commercial that she has out…
    U can’t say that nicki is a flop & not winning cuz if you do U need to go see a doctor fast cuz something ain’t right.

    Nicki Minaj is sooooo DOPE!

    Damn Dr. Dre….LOL :-)

    Although the CHRONIC will forever be one of the most significant Rap CDs of all times, I can;t help but wonder why his past “ABUSE AGAINST A WOMAN” is not mentioned but the media and feminazi groups? Did he not literally beat and choke radio personality Denise Barns back in the day?

    And also, Jayz’s many offenses against women from disgusting lyrics “Sistahs and B!+ches” to beating ex-girldfriends Foxy Brown and Amil Lion. wonder why Oprah didn’t quiz him about his abuse against women?

    [...] jealous streak and the complacency which saw a certain Nicki Minaj take her recipe and make a much better meal out of it, it’s become a little hard to support the ‘Black Friday‘ [...]
