Dr. Dre has recently been named the highest paid musician for 2014, landing at the number 1 spot on the Forbes list. Early in the year Dr. Dre sold his beats to Apple for 3 Billion dollars. This payout gave the musician 620 million in just 12 months. Back in May when he first announced selling his company, he agreed to 2.6 billion in cash, $400 million in Apple stock, and big time jobs with the company. The rap mogul becomes the first hip hop billionaire.
