Dr. Dre is having a better week than you. Almost immediately after news broke Thursday that Apple was closing in on a deal to buy headphone maker Beats Electronics for $3.2 billion, sources started whispering about the possibility that Dr. Dre would become the first billionaire in hip hop as a result. Dre has close to a 25 percent stake in the company. In a video posted on Instagram late Thursday night, the rapper appeared to confirm the deal and hinted at the billionaire rumors. Dre said "“The first billionaire in hip hop from the West Coast. Believe it." The video has since been deleted from Instagram, but not before it was posted elsewhere. less
