Is Dr. Dre The First Billionaire In Hip Hop?

By  |  0 Comments

Last week it was announced that Apple, Inc. was preparing to buy Beats By Dre for $3.2 billion.  The deal has since been confirmed and although it hasn’t made Dr. Dre a billionaire, it has brought him $200 million closer to becoming hip hop’s first billionaire.  Now, Dr. Dre is hip hop’s number one cash king with an estimated worth of $800 million. He is now followed by Sean “Diddy” Combs, Jay Z, Birdman and 50 Cent on the list.

With the sale of Beats By Dre to Apple, not only is Dr. Dre elevating his status as one of hip hop’s most successful moguls, Apple is getting a facelift. We have come to know Apple for having very clean cut and sterile looks to their equipment. Now, with some Beats By Dre flavor, audio accessories will get a new, chic look.  Nobody can be mad at this win-win situation. Congrats to all parties involved!
