In a video posted by singer Tyrese Gibson, Dr Dre boasts that he is “the first billionaire in hip hop”.
He then laughs as Gibson says: “Billionaire boys club for real, homie. The Forbes list just changed.… Sh*t just changed!”
“The first billionaire in hip hop, right here from the motherf*cking West Coast!” adds Dre.
It’s possible that lawyers involved in the pending deal got nervous — because the celebratory video was pulled from Gibson’s Instagram and Facebook accounts overnight.
Dre, a former member of NWA, compared his company to Apple in an interview in 2011. He said:
“We’re trying to eventually be second to Apple. And I don’t think that’s a bad position.”
Am glad his efforts finally paid off. It shows success does not hide..
