23. Dr Dre holds the title as the richest person in hip-hop.
Dr Dre is now officially hip-hop's wealthiest artist. The rapper built up his Beats By Dre headphones company from scratch and sold it this year for a whopping $3 billion to Apple. The deal saw his net worth shoot up to £800 million. That, is how it's done. (But Dre, we're still waiting for The Chronic). Picture: Apple/PA
