Jay-Z will be decoding his bank account having been unseated at the top of Forbes’ Cash Kings list of the richest Hip Hop stars by Dr Dre.

Former N.W.A. star Dre pulled in a huge $110million in pre-tax earnings, mainly due to his best selling Beats headphones.

What has Watch The Throne and teaming up with Kanye West done for Jay’s ongoing rap blueprint?..

The Reasonable Doubt mastermind, who usually tops the Cash Kings list spotted an opportunity to bring Kanye under his wing and bulletproof his place at the top of the game.

But he couldn’t have predicted the resounding success of Dre’s Beats earpieces.
