Last night reports from multiple sources arrived that Apple is about to acquire Beats Electronics for $3.2 billion. While speculation has been ongoing on whether this deal will come to frution or not, Beats co-founder and hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre was already busy celebrating in the studio as can be seen in a video posted on actor Tyrese Gibson’s Facebook page. While Gibson indicates that the “Forbes list needs to be changed,” Dre himself refers as “the first billionaire in hip-hop.” Watch the short clip above and judge for yourself and also make sure to read our conversation with Beats president and COO Luke Wood and Dre himself back in 2013.
UPDATE: It seems things are not “officially official” just yet as Tyrese has pulled the video from his Facebook page.
