Music mogul Dr. Dre didn’t go all-out for his born day. The hip-hop mogul revealed his motivation to keep things extra low-key for 55th birthday.
Big Facts: This week, the Doc called into radio personality Big Boy’s show to dish on his b-day goals.
“I was in the studio last night – I decided to just keep it low-key this time – I’m going to have a few friends over and my wife is going to do a crab boil for me. I love crab. We’re just going to kick it, kick it in my backyard.” (Real 92.3)
High-Key Details: On Tuesday, Slim Shady hit up his social media pages to encourage followers to wish Dre a happy birthday.
Wait, There’s More: In December 2019, Dre landed at the top of financial publication Forbes’ annual highest-paid musicians list.
Dr. Dre ($950 million) The superproducer released one album this decade and barely toured, but had music’s top business achievement: Apple’s $3B buyout of Beats. Taylor Swift ($825 million) Beyoncé ($685 million) Queen Bey began the decade newly graduated from Destiny’s Child, quickly establishing her business bona fides in the studio and on the road. U2 ($675 million) Diddy ($605 million) He’s had more name changes than anyone on the list, but his earnings remained strong thanks mostly to his Ciroc vodka pact with Diageo. (Forbes)
