"The First Billionaire in Hip-Hop"

Posted by: Jason Tate (05/09/14)
"The first billionaire in hip-hop, right here from the motherfucking West Coast." - Dr. Dre.

Looks like Dr. Dre thinks Apple is about to buy Beats.

Good for him. I still don't understand why people are willing to pay all that money for headphones.

In 2014 Forbes estimated Combs' net worth at $700 million, making him the richest figure in hip hop. 1969–1988: Early life. Sean Combs was born in a public housing project in Harlem, New York City, and brought up in Mount Vernon, New York.

Beats headphones are actually terrible. They are only popular for young generations as a status symbol. Then again i'm waiting for someone to say the same thing about an iphone owner. I love Apple and wish they weren't doing this deal. I'd rather them spend billions on a more innovative technology or company but it looks like they just want they are after a brand. I guess it will be interesting how Apples stock does.

also, someone tell Dre to quit boasting about his own self worth. Oh so you're a billionaire now? cool story bruh

I paid about $90 for my first expensive set of headphones, and they lasted about six years. Well worth it, considering the amount of music I listen to.

Good for him... I'd want to brag too if I achieved what he did, at least he seemingly realized it was in poor taste though and took down the tweets

The thing is, the Beats 'trend' feels like its going out more than coming back around. I don't think they look that good at all - they look like they're a few years old now. The technology isn't great either, as others have said they're over-priced. Seems like a waste of money from Apple's perspective. I'm not a businessman though.. Maybe it's a great deal?
