Forbes released a list of the top earners in hip-hop, and Dr. Dre came out as No. 1, earning him the title of "Hip-Hop Cash King." Most of his profits came not from record sales, but from selling his "Beats By Dr. Dre" headphones. The runners-up in order are Diddy, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj and Cash Money co-founder Bryan "Birdman" Williams. Which of these top earners is your favorite?
