Earlier this month Tyrese posted a boastful video of him with Dre celebrating that Dr.Dre where he predicted that the rapper/music producer would become the first billionaire in Hip Hop because Apple electronics was about to purchase his headphone company Beats by Dre for $3.2billion [click here incase missed that].
Well, weeks later industry insiders claim the deal may no longer be on the table because Apple execs were absolutely horrified by Dre and Tyrese's celebratory crypt walk.

Apparently, the Apple family near imploded with outrage when that video went up on Facebook of an ‘excited’ Dr. Dre with R&B singer Tyrese. In the video they share how Dre will be hip-hop’s first billionaire and other nice things about Compton. People often forget that despite Apple being this company that makes sexy products, with sexy profit margins, and sexy retail outlets…it is not in fact a very sexy company. It's a conservative company, particularly without the leadership of its guiding light Steve Jobs who would shake things up massively on a daily basis. This is not the kind of thing Apple is used to.Billboard is reaching or its true? Do you think that little video would stop a deal?
