The hip hop world spontaneously rejoiced after Dr. Dre confirmed that he was about to become hip hop’s first billionaire, and now, rappers Kid Ink and B.o.B are speaking out.
HipHollywood caught up with the rappers while on the red carpet for KIISFM’s Wango Tango to talk about Dre’s big milestone. “I knew it was coming. I got a pair of beats headphones, I have a bunch,” Kid Ink told us. “It’s dope that he was able to do that and really take it further than music. I saw that one coming for sure.”
B.o.B reacted by giving a bit of advice to Apple who is set to purchase Dre’s, Beats Electronics for $3.2 billion dollars. “iPhones are going to be so expensive now, they are going to be like $1,200.00. They are going to come with Beat buds you can put in your ear,” the rapper said. “If they are not, I just gave them a business strategy.”
Last week, news broke that this was Apple’s biggest deal yet. According to reports, the tech giant will obtain Beats’ streaming music service and its audio equipment business.
