Forbes Names The 20 Highest Earning Rappers & Producers In Hip Hop For 2012

dr dre
Forbes magazine released the names and earnings of the highest paid rappers of 2012. Dr Dre is miles ahead of everyone on the list, including the usual suspects Diddy, Jay Z. 50 Cent & Baby.

Shout to Nicki Minaj... she's the only female on the list, she made a hefty $15 Million (Go Girl). It's SAD theres only 1 female in Hip Hop getting money, yet most record sales come from women.

There are a couple of surprises on the list.. Out of everybody... I gotta shout out Tech N9ne, he gets much respect from me for his grind ... this brotha is 40 years old, independent, underground and getting money like a commercial artist on a Major label.

This just proves what I've always said... it's not about following the trends, or age.... it's about the music.

Check out the list below... let me know your thoughts, does anyone on the list surprise you?

1. Dr. Dre – $110 million
2. Diddy – $45 million
3. Jay-Z – $38 million
4. Kanye West – $35 million
5. Lil Wayne – $27 million
6 Drake – $20.5 million
7. Birdman – $20 million
8. Nicki Minaj – $15.5 million
9. Eminem – $15 million
10. Ludacris – $12 million
11. Pitbull – $9.5 million
12. Rick Ross – $9 million (tie)
12. Wiz Khalifa – $9 million (tie)
14. Snoop Dogg – $8.5 million
15. 50 Cent – $7.5 million
16. Swizz Beatz – $7 million (tie)
16. Pharrell – $7 million (tie)
16. Young Jeezy – $7 million (tie)
19. Mac Miller – $6.5 million
