    what a shame, that yet again I didn’t ‘quite’ make the top 100 ;-P

  • Mel432

    If Dr. Dre made 620M, why isn’t he #1?

  • lkingcorn

    I think Dr. Dre maybe a typo, perms 62 m. Would fit the spot.

  • ladymctech

    Maybe we can get someone who did to adopt us.

  • Dean

    I think it was a typo. Lol

  • Dean

    I know right, all I needed was a little bit more I could’ve made that list.

  • H.A.

    Wow. 7 out of 10 are African Americans. Kudos.

  • HKfan

    Who’s Floyd Mayweather????

  • Roimeister

    Dre/Iovine sold Beats to Apple… I’m betting it’s not a typo

  • Roimeister

    Dre and Iovine sold Beats to Apple… I’d bet it’s no typo

    the ranking is based on more than money/wealth and fame… not sure how much one influences v the other…
    but if look at #10 Robert Downey Jr for example has $75m next to his name, yet #9 is Katy Perry with $40m…
