Earlier this month, we heard that Apple Electronics was in talks to buy Dr Dre’s headphone company Beats by Dre for $3.2billion.
Well right after is friend Tyrese shot a video with Dr.Dre, where he predicted that the rapper/music producer would become the first billionaire in Hip Hop.
Weeks later industry insiders claim the deal is no longer on the table…

Apparently, the Apple family near imploded with outrage when that video went up on Facebook of an ‘excited’ Dr. Dre with R&B singer Tyrese. In the video they share how Dre will be hip-hop’s first billionaire and other nice things about Compton.

It’s a conservative company, particularly without the leadership of its guiding light Steve Jobs who would shake things up massively on a daily basis. This is not the kind of thing Apple is used to.
