Dre and Kanye West have a propensity to face personal difficulties at the same time.
With a brain aneurysm, Dre is hospitalized and West is seemingly on the brink of divorce from Kim Kardashian’s wife.
West and Dre have both amassed considerable fortunes, which during tough times can undoubtedly provide a financial life raft, but which artist is richer? If you stack the Forbes 2019 list back to back, Dre is behind West.
At the beginning of 2019, Forbes listed West with a net worth of $ 240 million. Meanwhile, Dre was set at $800 million by Forbes.
In 2020, however, Forbes revised its West listing.
West was currently at $1.3 billion, which is $300,000 more than (soon-to-be) former sister-in-law Kylie Jenner, the financial news source reported.
What has Dr. done?
Will Dre make money from him?
Dre is an icon in the rap and hip-hop community, rising to fame as part of the pioneering group N.W.A. in the 1980s.
In 1996, he then founded Aftermath Records.
The Sun estimates that Dre’s net worth rose to $800 million after he sold his ‘Beats by Dre’ to Apple for $3 billion in 2014. While Dre’s labels were an important source of income, he was also instrumental in launching the careers of heavyweights such as Eminem and 50 Cent.

Dre’s Prenup Divorce
The mogul is a good businessman too, buying real estate worth $80 million.
That includes a sprawling Brentwood estate he paid $40 million for, as well as a $12.5 Malibu beach house.
When he was hospitalized with a brain aneurysm, Dre made headlines recently. He said he was healing and thanked his fans for their good wishes. “Thank you to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes,”Thank you to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes. “I am doing great and receiving excellent care from my medical team. I will be out of the hospital soon and back home. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!!”
Kanye West has many brands and alliances that drive his fortune.
In the mid-90s, West appeared on the hip-hop scene and rapidly gained success and notoriety for his music, as well as his antics.
And although he laid the foundation through music for his fortune, he became a fashion entrepreneur who made him a billionaire.
In 2019, Business Insider says, streetwear brand Yeezy was valued at $3 billion.
As he generates a ripple around product releases and mixes the launch with restricted availability, Yeezy’s marketing tactics have proven ingenious. Kim Kardashian has also supported her soon-to-be ex-husband, having starred in Yeezy campaigns, with branding and promotion.
