After last night’s report that Apple is in talks to acquire Beats Electronics, the deal was seemingly confirmed by a now-deleted post on actor Tyrese Gibson’s Facebook page. In the video, Gibson and Dr. Dre are both seen celebrating, with Dre describing himself as “the first billionaire in hip hop.” The caption to the video read: “How did I end up in the studio with Dr Dre ON THE night his deal went public that he did with Apple 3.2 BILLION!!!!! The BEATS HEADPHONES JUST CHANGED HIP HOP!!!!!!” [via The Verge]
