Dr. Dre Increases Wealth By $200 Million, Moves Ahead Of Jay Z On "Forbes Five" List

(AllHipHop News) Listing which Hip Hop artist between Dr. Dre, Jay Z and Sean “P. Diddy” Combs is the more insanely wealthy one is a futile exercise in splitting hairs, but Forbes does it annually. In their 2014 Wealthiest Hip Hop Artists List, Diddy reigns supreme,but Dr. Dre has begun making strides over Jay Z.

Diddy, who started his own televsion channel REVOLT in October of 2013, increased his overall fortune by $120 million to a net fortune of $700 million. Jay Z increased his net worth from $475 million in 2013 to $520 million in 2014 with the start of his own sports agency, Roc Nation Sports. While Jay Z increased his wealth, he fell to #3 in the 2014 rankings as Dr. Dre’s wealth increased by $200 million from $350 million in 2013 to $550 million in 2014.

Dr. Dre owns Beats by Dre headphones with Interscope Records CEO Jimmy Iovine. Last year the headphone company reportedly raked in over $1.2 billion in revenue in 2013, a year after Iovine and Dr. Dre spent $150 million to increase their stake in the company to 75%.

    Every last one of them is an EMPLOYEE receiving some credit for the money their bosses make. Diddy has the most slave masters with Jay right behind. Dre is a loyal hoe. He only works for Jimmy.

      Are you sitting on C.E.O status or just an EMPLOYEE?
      chances are you’re an employee, either or where is
      your name on the Forbes list?? ya so quick to
      diss but do you actually realize if you have a job
      then you work for somebody, believe that. Boss or not.
      Dre, Jay and Diddy are multi millionaires, you call them hoes
      well, If i was Dre i would tell you that I’d rather be a filthy rich hoe
      than to be a broke filthy one.


      be careful how you use the word ”employee”
      I’m sure there are a lot of hard working
      folks on AHH

      • Montezuma1

        The issue is LIES. Don’t shift the focus. Multi-Millionaires and false reported earnings in the 100’s of millions are not the same thing. Next, there’s nothing wrong with being an EMPLOYEE unless you’re a fake mogul in rap who has the need to change your work title to boss, billionaire, etc., to escape the fact you’re gainfully EMPLOYED. As far as myself, I won’t be on Forbes nor do I have any desire to be there but you would trade places with me in a heartbeat. THAT I’m sure of. I call them hoes not because they work for anyone but because their primary source of income is derived from duping and exploiting their own people for pennies on the dollar like the good hoes they are. Now GTFOH.

      • The Black Fist

        I would trade places with you??? I am well established in my field and very blessed and happy, been that way for a while so FUK what you talking about. them niggas making money, A LOT!! in todays world it’s not about how you get there or who you step on to make it just get there!! there are millionaires & billionaires who LIED and STOLED there way into that status.

        like you’re so fucken honest, rich and self-made. sit down & STFU

      • Montezuma1

        Your woman is in a lesbian relationship and don’t even know it.

      • The Black Fist

        Yeah jump on some childish ish i saw it comin lol
        have a good day.

      • Savimbi

        yeah that man is the reason why blacks are lagging behind, Diddy, Jay, Dre and whatever other successful millionaire/billionaire don’t get to that position by sitting behind a keyboard spewing that kind of hatred. Montezuma is the exact mentality why blacks are lagging behind in america…so much hatred in his comments it’s unbelievable lol NIGGAZ are the only humans who don’t believe in hard work, they always attribute success to some outside forces, never hard work smh

      • Montezuma1

        Get your pom poms and pleated skirt. Lagging behind? Why? Because I refuse to accept pseudo-power for real power? Your love affair with token figure heads is the REAL reason we lag behind. Too busy reveling fabricated accomplishments to ever really get anything done.

      • Savimbi

        What makes them Tokens? lol talent, plus hard work took them there, pseudo-power? the hell you’re talking about? they are successful businessmen point blank. you NIGGAZ is lagging behind because you refuse to put in the same work ethic as these same people, who come from the same struggle, prove us wrong and do a better job then….o wait….

      • Judah Nazayar

        no u and stat r slaves. mental slaves. a man wid sense know full well this aint about no hardwork. its about anal and cheeck tissue. u gotta b down. give up that soul thoat n booty=$$$$$$$$$$

      • Phatt Killah

        As long as there’s taxes, EVERYBODY works for somebody

      • Montezuma1

        If you say so. For some WORK is a day on the greens talking shop. Is that what your work day consists of? All work is not created equal. I own a few businesses. I pay taxes but no one dictates my movement. When I get up or how long my vacations are. Big difference but if you want to make them the same go right ahead.


        You hit it the dead on the nail bro, good post.

  2. Montezuma1

    Jimmy tells Dre donate money to USC Dre does it. Literally if jimmy tells Dre to drop on his knees Dre does it. What good is all that money when you’ve lost your soul?

  3. You Got Me Hott Out Here!!

    I guess they sneak dissin Soulja Boy by not putting him up there when his net worth is 600m smh

  4. YaheardSyndicate

    I think Dre is going to be Hip Hops first Billionaire. Beats by Dre is respected world wide alongside companies like Apple . You dont have to be 21 to buy it like Ciroc. Owning a huge share of the worlds Headphone market is crazy.

  5. 1SOFLO1

    And we still don’t have a distribution company, Black folks are crabs in a buckets. Never see the big picture.

    • MsPeaceful

      i agree we need to have our own people of different races become jealous of successful blacks.blacks need to help the ones, who are trying with degrees who are single mothers and dont want to be on that governmental assistance. I supported beats by dre but he donated million to USC when there endowment is 3.5 billion. All these struggling black colleges.

    • youngplaya

      And your comment confirms you’re part or the problem. If Dre, Diddy, and Jayz wanted a distribution company they could do it. Evidently they happy with the enormous amount of success they already have. Can’t you just applaud they success? Naw you got to pick the negative.

    • Ramesses The Great

      50 Cent First album on Interscope came out in 2003, while Puff Daddy started Bad Boy in 1993, so you can’t compare the two, because Sean has a 10 year head start on Curtis.

      • Keylon Jackson Di Natale

        sean net worth been growin every years since he started bad 50 still on da coca cola money….. matter fact thats his only best deal while sean has many other ventures

      • Ramesses The Great

        Curtis Jackson is 38 years old while Sean Combs is 44 years old. You have to either compare Curtis 2014 to Sean 2008 or Curtis 2020 to Sean 2014 for it to make any kind of sense.

  10. Killyoself Asap

    Readin’ this just reaffirms how stupid people are that buy those weak ass headphones.Anybody that is a studio head or knows how to mix, they know those headphones are overpriced garbage.Shit is just a fashion trend, like wearin jordans.

  11. Ramesses The Great

    Hip Hop started in the Bronx, so why doesn’t that borough have a representative in the top 5 or even 10?

    • Willie Stewart II
