West Coast rap legend Snoop Dogg is getting a jump on Throwback Thursday. The hip-hop veteran went online this week to share an epic-looking flashback to the early 90’s.
Big Facts: Snoop Dizzle went to Instagram this week with a priceless pic of himself and music icon Dr. Dre.
High-Key Details: Last week, Dr. Dre called into radio personality Big Boy‘s show to dish on his recent birthday celebration plans.
“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)
Wait, There’s More: The same week, rap star Eminem hit up his social media pages to encourage followers to wish Dre a happy birthday.
Before You Go: 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)
