Sorry Dr. Dre, The Real Beats Billionaire Is Jimmy Lovine [Video]



When news spread last week that Apple was near an acquisition of Beats Electronics for $3.2 billion, Beats co-founder Dr. Dre appeared in a video boasting of becoming the “first billionaire in hip hop.” Bloomberg's Peter Newcomb examined whether or not that would be true. (Source: Bloomberg)



What did you find out?

Jimmy Lovine has more of a stake than dr. Dre.

It will make Jimmy a billionaire, Dr. Dre will fall in little bit short.

We should not fill story about hi -- feel sorry for him though, because it will be $640 million.

If it is a stock deal, that would lose all of the taxes involved so that will be a lot more.
