Published

Congratulations Dr. Dre. The rapper is just breaths away from becoming hip hop’s first billionaire!

According to reports, Apple is set to buy the 49-year-old’s Beats Electronics for a whopping $3.2 billion which is reportedly one of Apple’s biggest acquisition ever.

According to reports, the deal, which is set to be announced next week, can still fall through. But if all goes according to plan, the tech giant will obtain Beats’ streaming music service and its audio equipment business.

After news surfaced of Apple’s plans, Hollywood quickly praised the rapper for reaching such a milestone. Tyrese took to Instagram on Friday morning and posted this hilarious image of comedian and Breaking Bad star, Lavell Crawford lying in a bed of money.

To all of the homies on South Central I was told our beds are gonna look like this soon!!!! #BillionaireBedSpread#RestEasy the #DrFixedusUpAGAIN,” he captioned the image.

On Thursday night, Dre went to the studio with some friends, Tyrese and movie director, Gary Gary to celebrate the big news. The crew turnt up with champagne, Heineken and Hennessy.

In a video taped by Tyrese, you see the crew having some fun with the popular headphones and poppin’ bottles in what they are now calling the Billionaire Boys Club.

“Oh sh*t, the Forbes list just changed,” Tyrese said.

Dre chimed in, “The first Billionaire in hip hop right here from the mutha f*cking West Coast. Believe me.”

In a recent Forbes article, the publication reported that Diddy, whose net worth is $700 million, was on his way to becoming the first billionaire in hip hop with Dr. Dre trailing behind at number two. But it looks like Tyrese is right, it’s time for a new list.

This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

Halle Berry – Getty Images

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

Kerry Washington – Getty Images

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
