Dr. Dre Sells Beats to Apple For $3.2B To Become First Hip Hop Billionaire
It’s rumored that Apple Inc. has showed interest in purchasing Beats by Dre for an astounding $3.2 billion. Unofficially, it seems Dr. Dre is confirming the acquisition, as he’s seen in the video above gloating about being the first billionaire in hip hop. He’s joined by Tyreese and friends partying in what seems to be a celebration for the acquisition and deal.
Forbes recently released “Hip Hop’s Most Wealthiest” list where Dre hit position #2 at $556M and P. Diddy beat him at $700M, with Forbes stating Diddy could be the first billionaire in hip hop, but if this Apple deal is true, then Dr. Dre has easily surpassed his nemesis and will become the first hip hop billionaire.
It’s a good day for hip hop!
