This is the story of how Dr Dre went from high school drop-out to the richest man in hip-hop. From his solo career, to signing Eminem and Snoop Dogg and finally, the megabucks money he's made with Beats.
In 2012, NPD Group reported that Beats had a market share of 64% for headphones priced higher than $100, and was valued at $1 billion in September 2013. Dre had the product, and he had all the right music industry contacts to gain the promotion his headphones needed – they quickly began appearing in music videos and were snapped on celebrities' heads.
