Dr. Dre is the biggest earner in hip-hop, thanks largely to his range of headphones and audio equipment.

According to Forbes magazine's Cash Kings 2012 list, the rapper is thought to have earned 110 million dollars before tax, in the last 12 months.

Last year, Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, chairman and founder of Beats Electronics, sold a 51% share of the company to HTC for 309 million dollars.

The star tops the earnings list, but has not released an album since 1999.
