Well Dr. Dre, P. Diddy, 50 Cent, and Ludacris thinks so. After the successful launch of Beats By Dre, Diddy quickly jumped on board with Dr. Dre to launch DiddyBeats. Now the rest of the hip hop community seems to be jumping on board. This year 50 Cent and Ludacris have both announced headphones lines looking to debut 1st half of 2011.
On the other hand Ludacris line, titled SOUL by Ludacris, and will be lauching about 5 different models.
It is normally said that the first 1 or 2 to the market makes the money, but it doesn’t seem like that is the case in the hip hop industry, but I guess only time will tell.
