Dr Dre: hip-hop’s first billionaire
By Matthew Garrahan


Entrepreneurial flair has propelled the rap star from Compton to Cupertino
———————————————————————The raucous, celebratory video posted to Instagram a few weeks ago by actor Tyrese Gibson was taken down shortly after it appeared but in the few minutes it was available to view it went viral.
It featured Mr Gibson and hip-hop star Dr Dre at a party, and seems to have been prompted by the news that Dr Dre’s Beats Electronics was being acquired by Apple, revealed by the Financial Times that day. “The Forbes list just changed!” shouts Mr Gibson. “The first billionaire of hip-hop,” adds Dr Dre. “Right here, from the west coast.”
