With the internet going berserk around the hype of Apple’s acquisition of Beats Electronics, a leaked celebratory video has seemingly confirmed the venture.
The video showed up on the Facebook page of Tyrese Gibson, R&B singer and actor who starred in the Fast and Furious franchise. He posted a status which read “How did I end up in the studio with Dr Dre on the night his deal went public what he did with Apple 3.2 billion!”. It was accompanied by a video of Gibson, celebrating with Dr Dre and several of his close friends. Amidst the wild party atmosphere Dr Dre can be heard shouting “I’m the first billionaire in hip hop”.
The screenshot above, taken by Business Insider captures the Facebook status and video. What’s interesting is that Gibson pulled this video from his Facebook feed a while later. Of course, it had already been picked up by social media, but the fact that the video was later taken down may well show that both parties are waiting to confirm the venture officially. It does seem however that the celebrations pictured confirm the rumor that Apple has made the acquisition of Beats Electronics, in a deal which has made Dr Dre Hip Hop’s first billionaire.
The full video of the celebration can be found on Youtube here, however it carries a NSFW label, and contains language that some may find offensive.
