Who would have ever thought that headphones would be a cash cow?
Dr. Dre (with a little help from Interscope Records chief Jimmy Iovine), that's who. According to Forbes, the rap veteran reeled in $100 million (before taxes) from his Beats By Dre collection, making him the top Hip Hop Cash King of 2012. The popular headgear now sells more than half of the country's premium headphones, making perfect sense why music's elite remix their own headphone spin-offs (see Lady Gaga and Diddy) or are seen rocking 'em.
