Music producer Dr. Dre soon to be a Billionaire!

Dr. Dre

Getting $3 BILLION for Beats!!

Apple Deal Reportedly Close

Dr. Dre Selling Beats Apple
Dr. Dre could be days away from being the first rapper turned BILLIONAIRE ... thanks to a mega-deal for Apple to snatch up his Beats Electronics brand.

Apple will reportedly buy Beats for a whopping $3.2 BILLION -- and since Dre and Interscope honcho Jimmy Iovine created the brand ... it's a safe bet they will walk away with a huge chunk of that cash.

Dre and Jimmy created the brand back in 2008 with headphones -- but now they're also making bank off speakers, car audio systems, and a streaming service.

The deal could close next week ... and would be Apple's biggest acquisition ever.

Dre came in #2 on Forbes' most recent list of hip hop's wealthiest artists -- with a net worth of $550 million ... while Diddy was #1 at $700 million.

Hollywood Producer Tracey Edmonds & Bob Johnson form Alright TV

PRODUCER /ENTREPRENEUR - TRACEY EDMONDS NEW VENTURE IS ALRIGHT TV
“Alright TV will offer first rate buzz-worthy content in the areas of comedy, reality, self-help, music, and talk that promises to empower and entertain family audiences of all ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds,” Edmonds said in a press release.
“Bob and I are very excited to move forward with our vision and commitment to provide quality entertainment into the digital arena. I am delighted to work with Bob and YouTube in this innovative relationship.”
In addition to the launch of "Alright TV," Johnson--the former majority owner of the NBA franchise Charlotte Bobcats--also created one of the largest global independent distributors of digital and video content earlier this year with the formation of RLJ Entertainment. Resulting from his acquisition of Image Entertainment and Acorn Media Group, Johnson believes that the channel will further extend RLJ Entertainment’s position in media.
"I am very excited about the opportunity to be in a business relationship with YouTube,” Johnson said in the release. “YouTube's commitment to providing a broad array of diversified producer-generated content on YouTube will present an exciting opportunity for consumers and advertiser sponsorship."
Johnson added, "the RLJ Companies is proud to be in association with YouTube and we look forward to expanding that relationship as we complete the acquisition of Image Entertainment, Inc. and Acorn Media Group, Inc. under RLJ Entertainment."
