It was released this week that the highest paid rapper of 2011 really has not rapped about anything in over 10 years. Thats right. Dr. Dre has topped the list as the highest rapper of the last year because of.... wait for it.... his headphone sales. Yup. Guess that "Beats by Dr. Dre" is doing pretty well after all. It brought the man close to 100 million last year.
That is insane.
It also proves that there is virtually no money to be made by actually making music anymore.Its all about side projects, promotions, commercials, headphones, vodka, basketball teams, energy drinks, etc.
