    FUCK MY OLD BOOTS! Ultra wedge.

    Fair play to him. Good businessman.

    He could have all the money in the world though, It means shit to hip hop and he barely registers to me in the whole scene.

    Too many are greater and more important. Real Hip hop isn't about riches.

    Beats suck and apple is going down. Dre was onto something when he sold those.

    aren't beats just monster headphones with dre's name on them?

    monster being the same company that will sell you an HDMI cable for £100 just because the casing is a bit more solid than the one you can pick up on amazon for £5

    Monster haven't manufactured Beats for a year or so now. Beats have started the manufacturing process themselves.

    This deal makes no sense what so ever! They could have bought out any number of headphone manufacturers for a fraction of the price that are a hell of a lot better quality than Beats.

    If Apple bought Beats for their music streaming service then why didn't they just go for the big dog, Spotify, and buy them for around the same price that they bought Beats for?

    it's pretty evident that apple have never given a fuck about audio quality. style over substance.

    i find it fantastic that the 2nd black billionaire in the world should be dr. dre. after oprah. there are only a handful of billionaires in teh world and but three or four of them are black. that was before dre cut this deal with apple.
    i learnt all this from listening to kanye on the breakfast club btw. hes not that bad to listen to when the people interviewing him are bigger than him. he did lost his shit somewhat though, cant deny that. kanye is stuck in this "if you aint got money you aint got shit" mentality, and if you listen to that interview, you can really really tell

    i don't know how things work in US or EU, but here the beats by dre was always sold through Apple's stores. So, I guess it's just something that was already done, and just now they announced it to the market.

    Apple are not stupid they know Beats headphones are in fashion with the young uns so why not.
    Im sure they will make on it.

    The amount of work Dre has put into the music industry over the years he deserves it im surprised he didnt make Billions from his music alone tbh

    3.2 billion dollars sure is a lot of money but the skullcandy styled merch which dre lent his name to that apple now owns is not something anyone interested in hearing would buy, thats aboiut being seen.

    Apparently he won't even be a billionaire after all the taxes and whatnot... how stupid would he feel, not that 900 or 800 mil is anything to laugh at
