There are reports that Apple are looking at buying Beats Electronics for $3.2 billion. This has sparked conversation that the deal could potentially make founder Dr Dre, hip hop’s first billionaire. We sadly do not know Dr Dre;s stake in Beats Electronics, meaning we can not be certain of his potential worth in the company.
The deal would need to make him $450m to take him the Billionaire territory, meaning he needs to have at least a ownership of the company if the $3.2 billion offer of iTunes if true.
Forbes current wealthiest rappers:
Sean Combs aka P Diddy – $700m
Dr Dre – $550m
Jay Z – $520m
