The Hip Hop world is all abuzz! One of the pioneers, Dr.Dre of Beats Electronic or as we know it Beats by Dre is reportedly in a deal with Apple that will make him the first Hip Hop Billionaire. Apple reportedly has offered Dr. Dre 2.8 Billion dollars.Wow!
Dr. Dre who long ago made a name for himself with hits like the Chronic, Back in the Day and the Training Day soundtrack made the Forbes list as one of the highest paid Hip Hop artist in 2013. I think 2014 is going to be a much better year for the former rapper and D.J.
Over the years Dr. Dre has had collaborations with Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Ice Cube to name just a few. But long before Hip Hop really took off Dr.Dre was in a little known group called the World Class Wrecking Crew. The members of the group wore lipstick and high heels when performing. Dr. Dre was the butt of many jokes because of his former associations with the group.
When the deal with Apple is final Dr.Dre will be a BILLIONAIRE and to all of those who laughed and made drag queen comments about his days with the World Class Wrecking Crew I’m sure Dr. Dre is saying: Whose Laughing Now?
