Dr. DRE just made history by becoming the FIRST rapper to reach billionaire status by selling his “BEATS” to APPLE for 3.2 Billion dollars! 👀👀👀 Daaaaaaaamn DRE! This is beyond major for Dre and I just damn near coughed up a lung once I wrapped my head around how much money that is. Wowzers! Here’s the story according to TMZ:

Dr. Dre could be days away from being the first rapper turned BILLIONAIRE … thanks to a mega-deal for Apple to snatch up his Beats Electronics brand.

Apple will reportedly buy Beats for a whopping $3.2 BILLION — and since Dre and Interscope honcho Jimmy Iovine created the brand … it’s a safe bet they will walk away with a huge chunk of that cash.

Dre and Jimmy created the brand back in 2008 with headphones — but now they’re also making bank off speakers, car audio systems, and a streaming service.

The deal could close next week … and would be Apple’s biggest acquisition ever.

Dre came in #2 on Forbes’ most recent list of hip hop’s wealthiest artists — with a net worth of $550 million … while Diddy was #1 at $700 million.

The Apple deal — first reported by Variety — could easily push the Doc to the top of that list. This would also explain his purchase of Tom Brady’s mansion.

Dope Deal Dre! Talk about a Dre Day…lol.
