Apple Purchases Beats by Dre?


Yesterday news spread that Apple Inc. was close to sealing a multi-billion dollar deal to purchase Dr. Dre's company Beats Electronics.

Dr. Dre and Tyrese seemingly confirm the deal..

Overnight Tyrese posted a video online where Dr. Dre proclaimed himself the first billionaire in hip hop.

The Apple/Beats deal is said to be worth $3.2 billion.

Y'all watch the draft last night? Cowboys passed on Johnny Football and instead of picking somebody to help out the worst defense in franchise history, picked a gotdam offensive lineman. Johnny Football shoulda been a Cowboy. Jerry never ceases to frustrate me at the draft.

Tyrese look like Ray J reppin' a "Money Team" that he doesn't even realize he's not considered to be a part of..

@BeeGee, Do you really want Johnny Football on your team? With that attitude?

@12:50pm - Yup. Romo's back isn't gonna last much longer and he could've been our QB of the future. He plays just like Romo, but is clutch in big situations, where Romo is a clutz. So not much would have had to change about our scheme. Probably needed defense much more than Johnny, but Jerry didn't pick either.

@1:05 he lost his son and I'm sure that that hurt. I understand what 12:56 is saying it does seem like that sometimes and I see what you are saying as well.

@zeedee I know he's not trying to be on the next Dre album? Cause we all know if Dre doesn't have Snoop and Snoop doesn't have Dre they both suck.

Wow. Dre got more love from mainstream TMZ's audience. Congratulations are in order. This is inspiring. However you feel about him or his headphones, you've got to respect his hustle. And @12:53, he doesn't have to act like he has soooo much money, he does have soooo much money. He earned it!!

I am not happy for Dr. Dre. Fuck this super sambo ass coon. The only Black billionaire I am happy for is Oprah.

This nigga built an empire off of exploting Blacks, inventing gangster rap, one of the most negative and harmful genre in music that celebrates the murdering and incarceration among young Black men.

Fuck Dr. Dre and fuck the white racist Jews that invest in this trivial shit. Krakkas will continue to invest money into anything that will deteriorate and deter the Black community.

Fuck Beats by Dre, overrated, overpriced shit. There are much better and nicer earphones.

And fuck the dumbass parents spending $200-$300 on Beats so their kid can wear them out and get beat up or shot for them.

@BeeGee, Yes, he is talented but he is a hothead with a bad work ethic. Garrett would be unable to keep him in check and I see him clashing with Bryant and some of the other receivers.
I don't Jerry jones will put up with his antics. He already has Bryant to deal with.
In any event, based on the draft last night, Plastic Face Jerry Jones seems intent on destroying his franchise and there are 108 million reasons why. *side eyes Tony Romo*

I am so sick of money-minded niggas and that "you gotta respect their hustle" BS. I respect someones hustle is they are making a living doing something that doesn't harm others or something where they have none done dirt to get there, regardless of how low-quality or crappy their products may be! This is why Blacks folks stay worshiping the likes of BeyCamel, drug dealers, rappers, and strippers/side hos like Joseline, Mimi and Draya because they wanna be about "hustlin" like Rick Ross. How about more Black folks commend the little Black girl, Asia Newson, from Detroit who started her own business selling candles:

A few years back today’s blind item was driving on Lankershim Blvd in Studio City, California when he ran into a famous porn star.. the pair exchanged telephone numbers at the scene.

Our blind item calls himself a “King” but he’s really a queen. Know why? Because our blind item hooked up with the porn star after talking to her on the phone and when the porn star got to our blind items house, he requested she smashed him in his butt using a strap-on dildo that he pulled out from his dresser draw.

After the porn star did what our blind item requested she found out today’s blind item is not a “Baby Boy” … he’s really a baby girl.

Realist said...

I'd rather sell out than be among and live among a group of jealous, hateful, envious, uneducated, and ignorant Blacks. This blog is proof of the tension and self-hate that's very prevalent among Black people. You hate to see another brotha or sista graduate college, become successful, get married, get wealthy, etc. Your souls are sour and musty. You all are mad and it bothers you that Dre is rich and you're not, period. Why else would you be so callous and negative towards a Black man embarking on this deal with Apple? And then you wonder why people like Donald Sterling have more respect for the dirt on their shoes than for Black people. Get yourselves together and stop embarrassing the ancestors with your generational bullshit. The world is watching and you get treated accordingly.

I'm sort of torn between this sale. I just hope he hired a damn good lawyer to review the sale before he signs his name on the dotted line. Apple is desperate because their Apple products have reached an all time low in sales. They're interested in the technical design of Beats. I doubt very seriously they (Apple) use Dr. Dre's name in any of their new products. Either way, I'm happy for Dr. Dre. 3.2 billion dollars is a lot of money to say no to.
Congratulations, Dr. Dre!

The story goes that a company wanted Dr. Dre to invest and market liquor or something to that extent and Jimmy Iovine told him "you make music, why don't you do headphones?" and the rest is history. So basically people are mad because his friend gave him advice, then decided to invest in the business to make him some cash?! Yeah okay.

Nice move by Dre.

Apple products are cool, I own a few items, but the novelty wore off a long time ago with this company. Now, they have to drop new iPhones every six months to get people remotely interested and excited. I'm still rolling with my old 3G iPhone without a problem, care or issue to speak of. Tell me what's so new and exciting about a new phone every six months. Nothing. They bank on the ADHD-having, entitled 90's kids who have been given everything in life and have the attention span of a gnat to propel their business forward. Grown ups would rather spend their money on real sh*t like houses, retirement plans and vacations, not the latest overpriced, hyped up Apple gadget.

Furthermore, there is way too much competition in the market nowadays for Apple to hold onto the prestige that made them so brilliant and innovative. There are companies that are creating products that are just as good if not better than Apple and selling them at a fraction of the price.

Long Time Lurker said...

Hmmm...Stroking my Gotee.......

Beats by DRE has several other players (Owners) who stand to gain if this sale goes through. This wont make him a billionaire but he does stand to make some profit from the sale.

Beats is 50% owed by Carlyle group...
14 % by Universal Music Group
4% by Pentagram (Designers of the headphones)
and Steve Lamar

So an approximate 70 percent ownership is to outside partners

The rest is Owned Primarily by Jimmy Lovine

The unknown... is what is the Share given to DRE by Jimmy Lovine of the remaining 30 percent. Rumors are this its 15 percent.

Jimmy Lovine is the CEO and Co-Founder
DRE is listed as Co-Founder

I have heard from a from peers than DRE has sold his shares (percentage of his ownership in the company) back to Lovine for Cash he needed on several occasions... so that would mean and even lower amount than the rumored 15 percent

In the end 70 percent of the 3.2 Billion would go to outside partners.

The remaining will be split up somehow between Jimmy Lovine and DRE and who ever they owe.

Both DRE and Jimmy borrowed heavy to invest in founding this company from billionaires Len Blavatnik, Marc Rowan, James Packer, and Lee Bass.

Forbes magazine has said in today's news that Apple should run from this deal and cut all ties. Apples financial shares have dropped (lost value) since this deal leaked out.

The Youtube video was not smart....Apple has refused to comment on this story and doesn't discuss mega buyout deals before they close.....Hint Hint Dr. Dre and Tyrese should be doing the same.

Why is Tyreeeeeeessssseee acting he sold Beats?

Long Time Lurker said...

@jdent...Hey Did you see my tweet from a few days ago

Long Time Lurker said...

The details of this potential deal will be announced in about a week...A few other companies are looking to possibly buy and have made offers.

Behind the scenes.... the reason offers are being made to buy Beats by Dre is because the company has been suffering financially ...they recently tried to borrow over 600 million to keep a float..So offers are being made to take over all together (Buy the company outright)

You can be sure if Apple does buy Beats by Dre you wont see the financial break down I just did...

Dre will pretend to have become an instant billionaire and make sure its Hash Tagged Billionaire Status all over social media.

Most of the blogs and media will join in. Consumers will fall in line in believing the hype and all the black radio stations will proclaim Dre a Billionaire.

It will be great for his image and sell some magazine and generate website hits but far from the truth.

I fix I phones & they are cheap GARBAGE! The parts on the inside are so delicate.Last summer, I made $1,500 a day fixing this crap because Apple not only charges exhorbitant prices for their products,but outrageous prices for anything without a warranty. People were so desperate to get their phones fixed, that they were calling me at midnight to fix their stuff! IT WAS CRAZY!

The reason that Apple has fallen off is because they re GREEDY & dont give a DARN about customers. Their only goal is to charge you the highest price possible, for EVERYTHING!

They re lucky I cant get the chip for that damn phone, because I would build them myself & charge half of what they charge.. FU$$$$$!!!

^^^Up top is right about it always seeming like a*sholes and scum bags that use and abuse and violate their fellow human-beings are the ones that stay winning when it comes to career/product/investment/financial success. It's really f*cked up. And that BS about they may be suffering behind closed doors and money can't buy them happiness/peace. Um, money can buy them women/men that treat them like God's (Cassie to Diddy), and money can get them access to a majority of things that make them smile. More than not their money will be giving them manufactured peace and happiness. So the end result is still they win after screwing others over. They ain't cold and hungry and struggling like the people they stole from or stepped on. So BOO to that BS "money can't buy peace, joy and happiness" because it damn sure can buy them the perfect people to build them a happy fantasy world. Other than losing a loved one or becoming diseased, what else can sour their joy?

Apple is planning to buy headphones company Beats Electronics, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Financial Times all reported on Thursday. The deal is said to be worth $3.2 billion, and would be Apple's biggest acquisition to date.

You've probably seen Beats by Dre headphones around before -- they're incredibly trendy. The company's annual sales revenue is reportedly around $1.5 billion.

So, yes, Beats are popular. But are they good?

The consensus is a big, fat "no." Beats can cost upward of $379, and a chorus of music geeks argue they're not worth the price.

''In terms of sound performance, they are among the worst you can buy,'' Tyll Hertsens, editor-in-chief of the audiophile site InnerFidelity.com told the New York Times in 2011. He called them "extraordinarily bad."

"In almost almost every category there are lower-priced models that offer the same, and sometimes better, sound quality," Consumer Reports wrote in a piece titled "Are Beats by Dr. Dre headphones worth the money?"

This isn't just a few critics' opinions. In April, Time magazine scored the sound quality of 18 different headphones brands by comparing specs and aggregating expert reviews from CNET, Wired, TechCrunch and others. Beats headphones ranked a measly 17th out of 18.
