Dr. Dre Appears to Confirm Apple-Beats Deal in Facebook Video
J Thoendell stashed this in Music
In a clip spanning just 83 seconds, the Hollywood actor – most well-known for his roles in The Fast and the Furious and Transformers movie franchises – congratulates hip-hop icon Dr. Dre on the acquisition.
It’s fair to assume that a hefty amount of alcohol was being consumed at the music studio, as Gibson cracks jokes about the Forbes list needing to be updated. Sixty-six seconds in, Dr. Dre appears to confirm the acquisition:
“The first billionaire in hip-hop, right here from the motherf**king West Coast.”
The full video is available below. Be warned, the clip contains a fair amount of bad language, as well as some slick dance moves courtesy of Gibson. (Update: The video on Facebook has been pulled. We’ve replaced it with a ripped version from YouTube.)
I still find it hard to believe.
If true, Dr Dre beat Jay Z / Beyonce to a billion. Wow.
What's next for Apple, buying Rap Genius?
