Despite allegation of using a ghostwriter for most of his hits, Drake shoves off critics by getting himself on the no. 3 spot for Hip-Hop’s act highest earner in 2015.
DRAKE, GHOSTWRITING AND LOTS OF DOLLARS
Still celebrating the success of his recent platinum album, ‘If you’re reading this, it’s too late‘, he is known to have earned $39.5 million this year. An earning mostly coming from his very busy schedules on music tours worldwide, among another source of income like endorsements.
Every year, we just want to get more ready and better at touring and better at things that make money,” he said. “If I’m not on your list this year, I’d be gravely disappointed- Drake.
With this cash moves and ever-growing musical presence in the industry, Drake kicked Dr. Dre back to the 4th place, who has failed to earn much this year, even with the successes of his hit movie (Straight Outta of Compton) and new album (Compton: the soundtrack).
It sounds like the good old doctor celebrated too early for that billionaire’s club membership (I am sure his friends especially Tyrese, would find it hard to look him straight in the face now). However, no one should write Dre’s off just yet as he can still rake in some cash before the end of this year and bounces back to the top.
For now, Drake, who has always made the list since 2010, remains focused on getting the crown even if he also has to beat Diddy and Jay-Z to it.
