Here is a video from Tyrese Gibson’s Facebook (that has now been removed) turning up with Dr. Dre celebrating his multibillion dollar sale of Beats to the power company Apple.
Although no confirmation has been made on the amount Apple was paying for Beats, however reports swindled around the internet saying the deal was worth $3.2 billion.
“The first billionaire in hip hop, right here from the mothaf—n West Coast,” said Dr. Dre.
“Forbes list just changed,” shouts Tyrese, proud of his friends recent sale.
Check out the whole video here! I’m happy for him, he deserves this, he has worked so hard in the industry for so many years since I can remember in my 21 year life.
Dr. Dre’s net worth always sits in second place when looking at the list of richest men in hip-hop at an estimated $550 million, but Tyrese says this needs to be updated, (obviously).
Once the list is updated, Sean “Diddy” Combs, will now drop one place to second with an estimated $700 million net worth, and Jay Z stays at third at an estimated $520 million.
Congrats to Dr. Dre, I met him when I was a kid and I’m proud to say I’ve met the first billionaire in hip hop.
