Dr. Dre

Hip-Hop Rumors: Did A Drunk Dr. Dre Speak Too Soon On His Billion-Status?

Uh OHHHHHHH! I suspected this would happen. Last night, Dr. Dre and Tyrese were partying up super heavy until the wee hours of the morning! Dre and ‘Rese were celebrating the supposed sale of “Beats” to Apple for well over a $3 Billion. “The first billionaire in hip hop … right here from, the mother f**king West Coast,” the good doc bragged with Tyrese getting him on Instagram. The windfall presumably would push Dre over the billionaire top. And the internets went crazy and we assume Jay and Diddy got a little sick in their tummy-space that the West Coast don beat them to the coveted spot in Hip-Hop. BUT HOL’ UP. (You knew this was coming.) Last year, Diddy topped the Forbes list, followed by Dre and Jay.

First of all, ALL THOSE VIDEOS HAVE BEEN ERASED! Tyrese deleted them ALL. All that is left is this Breaking Bad-inspired image.

SOoooooooooooooo…the people have started to break down the numbers. According to analysts, Dre will definitely be the richest man in rap, but he won’t be a billionaire yet. Dre is worth about $550 million and the sale (when its official) will push him over to about $800 million. Did Dre just get too drunk and speak too soon or did Apple get at him like “What the F are you doing?” I’m not sure, but there is a way to get to that BILLI, DOC!

I have the solution to make that other $200 Million!

Do this, DRE:

“They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry!” -illseed.

Illseed, Out.

    Yep that Detrox should at least cover 100M alone. sell a few beats and you should be a billionaire

  • MusicMade4love

    See this why I don’t like Tyrese. Can’t stand that big mouth nigga. Didn’t nobody ask yo ass to run to instagram esp if Dre was drunk. If this true Dre won’t be around him anymore. It’s okay to speak things into existence but don’t go putting it out before you done signed your name in the dotted line. Apple stock fell 1% when this news came out so let’s see if they still go through with this deal.

    • TheOnlyCoop

      Dre was right there with him he knew it was going online sooner or later.


    Know I’m 99.9% certain Detox will not be dropping any Tim’s soon

    • SBRon

      How ’bout NEVER

  • hoeyuno

    After the money made of em and the amount of kids in the world walking around with $300 headphones on..I woulda thought he was there already..I can bus downtown and on the way see at least 50 pairs of those headphones…

  • Brindle

    Always wait to celebrate. Once you sign the line, then you can express the celebratory side of your blackness…

  • Thanx Nerve

    800 millions is still BIG enough. Kudos to Dre but it’s cool to keep quiet.

  • trilltalk1

    lol people love counting the next man pocket. him getting to a billion or 800 million will benefit us how? STOP THE NONSENSE!!!

    • Yea its me

      Stop crying like a bitch.

    • Papi Peligro

      It will. Dre will become a metaphor for Billion dollar negro. I’m about to be the next dre. Soon as I get Trap App popping. Billionaire.

  • Prince Jay

    who cares

  • Elayorx El

    Well, no wonder Hip-Hop “died”. Let’s please not resort to calling this hate also. It’s just facts. What made Hip-Hop great to begin with, was that it was constructed as a counterculture. Now being part of the F’ery we call, “big business”, it may well be time for “Hip-Hop” to find a new moniker. One that speaks to the type of culture that the art form truly represents now. Congrats to Dre, but we all know this is not about a real “Hip-Hop family” come up. A toast to “gangsta music”.(put your drinks up) The true official start to real Hip-Hop’s ending.

    • Papi Peligro

      Some people hating. JK fam.

      • Elayorx El


    • King Dolla

      Shut yo hating ass up. smh

      • Elayorx El

        Truth hurt, don’t it?

    • Aron Elsewh3r

      Super True!!!!!

  • Cookie Fox

    Well Im sure it wont take long to get to that other 200 Million, not long at all…

  • this “rumor” is kinda pointless…thanks AHH

  • Tx_Vandal187

    Jimmy gave him the shake down

  • jon dubock

    Guess Detox wont be dropping….

    • Papi Peligro

      lol. It probably will now.

  • TheBigCheeFa

    detox wont see the light of day

  • Burbz Royal

    yo Dre we need some new tunes to bump in these got damn headphones since they gon start chargin a nigga $700 for em..get up off yo ass nigga

    • W.$.G.T.$

      LMAO! i know thats right!

    • Papi Peligro

      LOL. Now thats for real.

  • Son Dollars

    we shook Dre’s punk ass now we outta the closet… Dre and Tyrese alone getting drunk how gay is that!

    • Lord Saltsworth McGinty III

      We are talking about a BILLION dollars and the only thing that you can think about is gay sh@t? Hmmmm…..

  • Papi Peligro

    Why would APPLE be mad about free publicity. Thats less than they would have paid for a viral marketing campaign on TV, Internet, newspaper. You all did it for free.

  • Papi Peligro

    Why Jimmy Iovine on every move Dre make.

    • Phibes

      Dre is the face & Jimmy is the brains behind it all.

      If it was called “Beats by Jimmy”,we wouldn’t even be having this discussion. Since Dre is the name & face we all know,it makes perfect sense to have him attached to the company, if only for marketing purposes.Either way, big ups to them both. Now on to the next project. Lol

  • JokeznSmoke

    Bottom line no one knows Dre’s current stake in the company, too many folk speculating its around 15% could be more or less bottom line its more than any of us broke muthafukas commenting on here!!!LOL

  • TheAkademik

    Dre going to spend that money on more steroids and tighter shirts.

  • MrNoName2K

    Power move DRE..f*ck Detox lol nigga you got your money. Stop keeping these leach ass niggas in suspense and live your life..

    Nigga, I don’t blame them for celebratin. $hit, I’d throw a BBQ if I won $100.00 on scratch off. Move dat dough Dre!

    • Changeclothz

      lol hell yeahhhh

  • If a product is doing so well, why sell it? Keep black businesses alive, always selling away our stuff…Why not be a part of the wealthy “Beats” brand for the rest of your life? #justsaying

    • chuck

      It’s not just a black business. That’s just the name on the masthead They have investors that want to see a return on their investment and fyi, most companies are built to be sold to bigger companies (instagram, whatsapp, Gluceau, etc). That’s how you build investor trust and get MORE capital for bigger and better investments. Who knows, they may build something bigger than Beats next time.

      • That’s a hard to grasp concept!

        “Don’t fall in love with the product!”

    • King Dolla

      No you sell and invest in something else.

    • jon dubock

      Black business???….

  • Swagavelli

    Who the hell are the people claiming to do the numbers how do they know he will not get a Billion out of the deal….And how do you hate on someone with 800 million let along a Billion????

    • nicole

      tell em…he will make 1.8 billion off the deal, now add the750 million he has to that…now if only he will invest in his community and elsewhere wisely

      • Swagavelli

        You know that aint gonna happen….Lol

      • deanharris

        Dre, Diddy, Jay, Will, Russell, Queen Latifah and the rest need to help us fix the schools. If they don’t do nothing else, they should at least try to repair the long term effect poor education has on a community. They have the power and are now the insiders. There’s plenty of good people around the country that can contribute expertise and other creative gifts. If we prepare our children culturally and academically to compete in a 21st century economy, this hiphop crusade would be worth it!!

      • Twonpass

        Sadly, not one of them clowns are gonna do anything …..
        They are too bust wanting to be their own oppressors…
        Name one Uber successful brotha or sista that have done anything to help they own people.
        You cant cause it doesnt happen..

      • deanharris

        Very True my brother, keep the fire!!

  • black god

    you can only guess how much someone has, you don’t know what their money is invested in. or their spending habits and overhead.

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      right they could be shoulder deep in debt … all the money coming in could be going right back out that window just to sustain the lifestyle ……

  • jon dubock

    Got a line for Jay-Z for always braggin about how much money he makes…

    “Even though he gay, you say, “Drake” money funny, when compared to you and “Bey” money, say you make “Jay” money, but you dont make “Dre” money, sonney…”…

    thats a platinum lines right there….hahaha….

    • GQ


      • jon dubock

        Why??? Cause I wish a knee grow would like a wood chuck chucks wood….I got that from 2 Chainz…

      • You should have said something about Chuck Norris breaking wood in a ‘hood that was all good before he was understood, about interupting his food! ( Uh, I meant Fud )

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM


  • Qudus

    Blah, Blah, Blah…hopefully, this will keep Jay quiet and on his next record we won’t get to hear that age old mantra of his – “I’ve got half a billi”

  • TruthHurts

    So Apple now gets a piece of HP computers that are sold, the Beats Music subscription service, and can start including Beats headphones with their ipods/iphones….. Apple stays winning!

  • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Lord Jamar going to comment and make a video by Vlad Tv in 5,4,3,2,1…………”Yeah Dre is official BUT why he sell to the white man, mannnn FU(K Stevel Jobs, dead azz cracker” “On other note fu(k Ronald Sterling, is it Donald?, I hate racist piece of sh*TS.”

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      nah he would say … now thats how you sell to the white man … LOL !! you build it until its actually worth something … then you sell it LOL !!

  • Reblogged this on DJ BODEAN .COM.

  • Meanwhile niggas is still starving in Africa, Compton won’t see a dime of that billion, and 10 niggas is getting shot at in Chicago as we speak

    • jon dubock

      whats your point???…

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        that there’s more pressing news and priorities to be considering?

      • Preach

      • jon dubock

        so what are you doing????..uh hmmm…..nothing….he probably gives back more in one year with his tax dollars than you and I do in our life times….so yea, whats your point???…is everybody supposed to get a hand out or something just because one brother made it???…instead of asking for hand outs and help all the time, and become a legitimate business person….then maybe people wouldnt be getting getting shot all the time in Chi town…I guess with all the jordans niggas buying, MJ should be giving out welfare checks monthly….

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        even if he tried … we are dealing with young minds and its 2014 … you wont be able to save everyone … a bad apple spoils a bunch … best thing we can do is reflect the light for those who want to see it ….. you got some who refuse and will go thru tons of turmoil before they see the error in thier ways …..

      • So I’m a bad apple for stating facts…Way to prove your point by trying to insult someone. Also just because your older proves what? because you damn sure couldn’t comprehend what I was saying. All you did was cosign what another nigga said. But no worries because the message flew over his head as well.

      • jon dubock

        Reading comprehensions please…otherwise you’ll look like an ass for berating others…..

      • Coming from the nigga who made zero sense lmao!!

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        ^^^^^^^^ lol

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        sorry dude but i didnt call you a bad apple lol i was speaking in general

      • I’m doing far more than you’ll ever know..trust! Secondly, when or where in that statement did I ask for a handout??…I’ll wait.. or are you going to feed me more bullshit I never said. Furthermore, I can honestly care less what you or anyone else does with their money because its they’re business. Lastly I don’t know where you where trying to go with the whole Chicago thing besides making up more shit in the hopes of to bettering your argument However, I live a perfectly legitimate life and nigga’s still get shot everywhere everyday and not just in Chicago, so what was your point?? and you missed with that bullshit about Jordans so try again.

      • jon dubock

        I was replying to your original post….cause what the hell was your point???….

      • jon dubock

        i was replying to your posts….didnt you say compton aint going to see a dime from dre and niggas still getting shot in chitown???….if you dont even remember your original posts then might i suggest you not respond with filth laced rants…..

      • How’s about you try reading all the replies to the original post then…just maybe you’ll notice that someone else actually got what I was saying. because you did nothing more than assume

      • jon dubock

        like???….and how is that dre’s job???….

      • Like how Obama is trying to sell control of the internet to China or other countries within Asia, or how we’re on the verge of WW3. This Gay agenda that’s being forced upon us. The fact that our amendments as US citizen’s is increasingly diminishing by the day just to name some

      • jon dubock

        and how does that have anything to do with dr. dre???….good god, go to yahoo or something, man….cause you aint making any sense at all that’s pertaining to this article….

      • Wow!…You really don’t get it…I’m done

      • jon dubock

        cause you’re an idiot….i like how it went from compton wont see a dime, to niggas still starving in africa, and people still getting shot in chicago, to obama selling the internet and ww3…..I guess you sucked at writing essays in school didn’t you???…sorry that this news isn’t socially conscious enough for your liking…but nobody forced you to read it….i dont understand people who go onto an article and type “who cares”….if you dont care why the hell bother commenting???…oh and HELLO??? its a music/entertainment site….

      • jon dubock

        Obviously you’re the one that doesnt get it….crying about what is important news and what isnt, on a rumor section….hahaha….you sure you arent illseed???…

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      but if dre can see a billie why hasnt that @least inspired every person in compton to @least see $60k per year …?? ijs get that wind under your feet and make something happen … compton aint too far from many oppurtunties … get up get out and do something !! what dre did as a man is priceless compared to any amount he could write on a check … IJS !!

    • Ramesses The Great

      What does Africa starving have to do with American Blacks? Africans hate American Blacks more than racist white people. Get the Fluck outta here!!!

  • Knickolas Brody

    Kendrick is too busy making his own album to write Detox right now

    • Ramesses The Great

      Kendrick, huh? D.O.C., Ice Cube, RBX, Snoop, Em, Royce and a host of others are in line before Kendrick lol. You new fans think a 1 time platinum new artist would be enlisted to write an entire album for Dre, when Dre has old heads on his squad that can write 10 times better than Ken Doll.

      • Splatter

        thank you man. I been a fan of Kendrick before the album dropped and since its dropped these kids cant get the inches out of their mouth. just as long as dre keep the formula and don’t add too many new westcoast dudes like YG, that nigga aint a rapper. Nipsey and the dog pound would be a good feature.

      • Ramesses The Great

        Nipsey is the truth!

  • Ramesses The Great

    He should do a cover like that.

  • St7007

    It kills me how mofo’s always talking about what someone else should do with there money. Fight hunger, pay for schools, please that what your hard earned tax dollars are for right to your congressman, mayor, council member to get shit done.
