Dr Dre Appears To Confirm Beats/Apple Deal, Calls Himself ‘The First Billionaire In Hip Hop’

“It’s not often you get to listen to Beats with Mr Beats himself.” So starts what looks like a selfie-video by rapper Tyrese Gibson, who was hanging out with Dr Dre last night (embedded below).

We have’t had any official confirmation from Apple or Beats about , after the that the iPhone maker was going to do a deal with the music streaming company. But Dr Dre, one of Beats’ co-founders, seems to have other views about transparency.

Playing around with some other folks, Gibson starts out the video with a reference to the Beats/Apple news. “Billionaire boys club for real, homie…. The Forbes list just changed!…”

“In a big way,” rejoined Dr Dre.

“The first billionare in hip hop, right here on the motherf*ckin’ West Coast!” Dre says, standing behind him to lots of laughing and hollers off camera.

Shit just got real, yo.
