How much Dr. Dre will pocket with Apple's purchase of Beats?

How much Dr. Dre will pocket with Apple's purchase of Beats? | First Billionaire Hip Hop ? | Scoop.it
Will Apple’s rumored $3.2 billion acquisition of Beats truly make Dr. Dre the first billionaire in the history of hip-hop? Analysts are not as optimistic, but the rapper will surely enjoy a big payday.
Tyshane Thompson's insight:

This source is reliable. Dr. Dre himself is confirming the news on youtube. He might not be the billionaire he said he would be. Tech times says he owns somewhere around 20% to 25% of beats shares. The sale of 3.2 billion would double the rappers stake and increase his net worth to 800 million after capital gains taxes. But people forget that he makes money from all the music he has made over the years. I think there is a possibility he could be the first billionaire in hip hop.
