Dr. Dre Appears to Confirm Beats Acquisition: 'The First Billionaire in Hip Hop'

Dr. Dre has a lot to learn about Apple secrecy.
Apple is rumored to be acquiring Beats Electronics in a landmark deal worth $3.2 billion. While the purchase is yet to be confirmed formally by either company, Dre appeared to confirm the news about the company he cofounded in a video.

In the video, which was uploaded to Facebook overnight on Thursday by actor Tyrese Gibson, Gibson jokes (with some NSFW language) that Forbes needs to update its billionaires list. Dre chimes in at one point, with what seems to be confirmation of the news.

"The first billionaire in hip hop right here from the motherf*cking west coast," Dre can be heard saying. Then Gibson starts dancing and the room erupts in cheers.
The video has since been removed from Facebook, but versions of it can still be found on WorlstarHipHop.
