Wowzer! No wonder he's looking to buy Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's $50 mega-mansion!
Yesterday the Financial Times reported that Apple is closing a $3.2 billion deal to purchase Beats Electronics, and though representatives for both companies have yet to comment on the matter, Dre seemingly confirmed the news last night while out with Tyrese Gibson.
Dre, who founded Beats in 2008 with Geffen A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine, says in a video posted on Tyrese's Facebook, "The first billionaire in hip hop right here from the motherf*ckin' West Coast." Hey, if that's not an official statement, we don't know what is!
"Billionaire boys club for real homie," Gibson added. "The Forbes list just changed. It came out like two weeks ago. They need to update the Forbes list!" The video has since been removed, but we can't imagine the boys would have been out celebrating last night unless they had a good reason to be ... Congrats!
