Hip-Hop Rumors: Did The Apple / Beats Deal Get Killed?


OH NO!!!!
dre and tyrese celebrate

This can’t be life! There is a big reason that the deal with Apple and Beats didn’t go through. The Apple Team freaked out when the Instagram video came of Dr. Dre and Tyrese bragging about the $3.2 billion business acquisition. Now, when I first reported on this a few weeks ago, I was chastised by unnamed forces not affiliated with AllHipHop so, I’m just going to say “I told y’all so.” But, since we’re closer to Hip-Hop and Black people more than the LA Times, we get a call. But, the LA Times is now reporting the same thing I said already. Basically, Apple is/was angered by the leak. As you should know, Apple is always top secret with their business. The deal still isn’t done. Nobody quite knows if it will, but I think it will. Once they get their emotions out of it, I think they will realize they want Beats in their stable.

Hopefully, Dr. Dre still gets that big check. If not, he’ll still be worth about $500 million. Hey…

      • Yep those are real lyrics and a dope track by Immortal Technique bro.

        You just reminded me of my old work out track I used jog along to it on the thread mill.

  • MR..ASS..TO..MOUTH..

    all that jaw jackin will lighten your pockets.man …why is it only black celebrities doing this shyt. you never see george lucas or any other high profile person doing that shyt.

    • Sean Taylor

      Because old money doesn’t have to brag. New money does. I can’t see any real business man about to do a billion dollar deal bragging the way they did on that video.

      As the saying goes, don’t count your chicken before they hatch.

      • Dope

        New money doesn’t have to brag either. Mark Zuckenberg is new money, but he doesn’t brag. Bill Gates was new money and he didn’t brag etc..

        The difference is in people around them. If you look at the video, Dre barely does anything, it’s actually Tyrese who brags like that was his money and the rest of the people in the room hype it up like Dre’s about to make it rain 100 dollar bills on their asses.

      • Not that they had money like they do now, but both bill and mark went to private school and had wealthy parents.

      • NYG20

        2nd Gates and Zuckenberg have always had a passion about their career never did it for the money like most rappers.

      • Pirate7x

        Ummm, Gates & Zuckerberg had about as much passion for their careers and desire to get $$$ as Dr. Dre. You can see it in their bios and films like The Social Network and Pirates of Silicon Valley.

        Don’t get it twisted, Silicon Valley types are MUCH more cuttthroat and backstabbing than rappers today, ask Steve Woziniak and Steve Jobs (RIP, Remain In Peace).

    • Philip Joseph

      It’s true. When I saw the video I thought “You’d never see like white celeb acting like that”. We get so stupid and flashy about money. Embarrassing

      • MR..ASS..TO..MOUTH..

        this man let his loose lips sink his 3 billion dollar deal.looks pretty stupid to me.

    • Brooklyn Stoop

      its not only black celebrities doing this……….the real question is why when black celebs do this its silly knee grows belly aching over it and silent when the white boys do it.

      • MR..ASS..TO..MOUTH..

        what high profile white celebrities who you know that do dumb shit like this……steven speilberg? bill gates? warren buffet? george lucas?….hmmmm i’ll wait while you google.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        i already said carl ichan. now you go google him and all the wealthy white men he beef with

  • What people dont understand is Apple is not after the headphones alone.They are after Beats streaming capabilities so they can compete with spodify and pandora.Even though niether of the 2 make any profit, Apple sees the potential in earning.Apples downloading program(Itunes) is seeing major declines because people are now streaming.Think about it, ITunes has over 500 million acounts majority of which are debit card holders.If they could switch from downloading into streaming they can start making money off the music industry again.If you do your research you will see Apple could possibly make 3.2 billion dollars back in 2 years by charging each of their clients 9 to 10 dollars a month for unlimited streams.

  • BIG MIKE SOMETHING SERIOUS

    Seen a Best Buy commerical, it was showing Bose headphones, might not mean nothing, but it could mean Bose might be trying to tap in to that market.

    • NYG20

      What? Bose has always made headphones rofl.

      • BIG MIKE SOMETHING SERIOUS

        Affordable headphones stupid. Bose never have prices on their items.

      • NYG20

        Obviously you’re stupid cause I had a pair of wireless Bose headphones since 2000. Dumb nigga.

    • Pirate7x

      They’re too late. I worked at Best Buy in the audio department selling headphones, portable stereo speakers, & ipod/mp3’s. Bose has been a quality leader in headphones & speakers but fell waaaay back upon the rise of BeatsByDre. Beats now has 50% of the ENTIRE HEADPHONE MARKET, including all other brands. Beats demographics crossed all ages, races, incomes, interests, etc. When we were out of Beats, there were some angry customers I had to deal with directly (and it wasn’t my fault ha). We rarely ran out of Bose but folks who liked them were faithful to the brand.

      Bose’s high-end stance and failure to enter a more affordable model for over-ear headphones earlier left a massive void for the other brands like Beats, Skullcandy, JBL, Karmon, Sensiesser, etc. to swoop in. They would have to make something so radically original to snatch the market share and branding Beats has on partons now. They would probably do best staying the Rolls Royce of audio products because there’s no way to hang with Beats’ Mercedes Benz-like control of the semi-affordable high-quality heaphone market right now.

      Beats may fall out of favor in a few years, who knows how the whimsical consumer audience will react. But by Beats attaching to Apple, probably the strongest brand name in all business, buys them a much longer shelf life.

    • Lucky Luciano

      And that ladies and gentleman is Monopoly

      • Brian Andrew Smith

        not really son. Mono, is one. learn before speakng.

      • NYG20

        Monopoly is always around lol. Always will be. Like Google, Verizion, Samsung ext.. Don’t already own everything.. They monopoly with couple other people and blast us consumers. We have some of the slowest internet speeds for a top country, yet pay more than anyone else for internet.

    • damion

      I am not sure if Beats by Dre owns the entire streaming company by itself. and it is 800 million not 500 million. 😉

    • Jared

      Yes!!

    • Finally, someone who gets it ( sigh of relief )
      Apple are also paying the price to acquire Dre’s and Jimmy’s talent.

      You’re a better teacher than I am Roderick.

      Word of advise guys n girls, it’s highly recommended that you research a topic you don’t understand before commenting. Want to know about what goes on behind closed doors during negotiation? read a reputable business web site. Want to know why company x,y.z does what it does? do the same thing.

      Business deals of such magnitude could take weeks, months or years before being finalized. There’s always a lot of back and forth involved.

      This deal doesn’t just involve Dre and Jimmy sitting with the apple execs sipping cool aid. There’s also lawyers, business managers et al involved making sure that all parties are happy with the deal.

      Yeah I get it, Dre is a business man but he also has a team of well versed business people, deal brokers et al who he pays. ( that’s his team, not the goons ) These peeps are the ones that come up with a lot of great strategies.

      AHH hasn’t got all the answers. LOL.

      Some of the comments I’ve read sound like peeps think its a business deal between 2 weed dealers. LOL

      Respect to Dre for pursuing his dreams and tapping into multiple ventures to get to where he has today despite being called a sell out by many. I wish him the best and hope the deal is finally announced very soon.

    Dre supposed to be a business man. Nigga hang’n around Tyrese bein ghetto n shit now he over there nervous and the deal might not even go thru. There was no reason to make that fucc’n video especially without the checc. Niggas act’n like niggas.

    • NYG20

      He’s not nervous. Tyrese and Dre were drunk, they both from compton.
      If apple doesn’t buy it there is plenty of other electronic companies that will.

      • Yea its me

        Tyrese is from Watts idiot…

      • Pirate7x

        Calma meu doce…

  • DJMaestro

    Stop letting them control the outcomes of the inevitable! They don’t want it? Strike another blow to Apple and offer it Samsung for a bit cheaper. Put that on the table and watch them move on it asap!

    • RealSpit

      • RapItUp

        I’m sorry … But.. I believe you’re the one embarrassing yourself here.. As you can see, I’m an unrelated third party, and dudes initial comment checks out. I understood immediately what he was trying to get across. (He left out one apostrophe, otherwise, sans casing and minor punctuation, it’s legit) If English is a second/third language for you, that’s understandable..

    • Guest

      I like how nigga’s just out of no where just know. No proof, no facts, no one from Apple or Beat stated its a done deal, every major business specialist and Forbes dont know, but this nigga right here just says he’s knows!! Lol…

      • Papi Peligro

        Man that applies both ways.

      • W.$.G.T.$

        check the news troll. told u its been DONE, leave the gossiping for the lames to figure it out.

        NEXT.

  • Slaughtr

    That’s why you keep your mouth shut until the deal is all over, niggaz can’t keep their mouth shut.

  • Papi Peligro

    Man Apple didn’t say it wasn’t on. Dre didn’t say it wasn’t on. You didn’t start nothing but gossip. If anything somebody probably came along and offered more. That’s why they don’t like these deals to be publicised but their not taking it off the table.
