[Video] Tyrese & Dr. Dre Confirm Apple’s $3.2 Billion Beats By Dre Purchase
Tyrese Gibson, someone I know personally from (music) touring with, has just confirmed that Dr. Dre is indeed hip-hop’s first billionaire as Apple will be acquiring Beats By Dre for an astounding $3.2 billion. That’s a lot of money for headphones…and everything else Beats makes. It’s hard not to recognize Dre for the amazing feat; Beats was the first headphone company in the market to to turn how we listen to music into a fashion staple, with the aid of massive pop culture co-sign/promotion. We’re still awaiting full details likely to be disclosed soon in a formal press release. The six time Grammy Award winning artist/producer took to Facebook in the first time since the news broke with close friend Tyrese. Check it out below.
