If Dr. Dre woke up with Jay-Z's money, he'd jump out of a window

(Granted, you should never believe anything you read in Forbes.)

What does it mean that Dr. Dre makes so much more money than anyone else in hip-hop, and he hasn't spit so much as a verse since I was a teenager, and I'm more or less middle-aged at this point?

Maybe it's not such a bad thing? Diddy - who's made more money than Jay-Z all along and doesn't really get credit for it (not that I give a shit) - came in second, and what does he do? No really, I'm asking because I have no idea.

Now all we gotta do is get Dr. Dre to make a product that's (a) actually worth a shit, and (b) manufactured by people here in the US who make a decent wage.

I know, keep dreaming...
