Super producer Will Packer also serves as executive producer of the film alongside Gray.
It’s Official! The super producer/entrepreneur Dr. Dre is not the worlds 1st hip-hop BILLIONAIRE!
A video shot by R&B artist Tyrese Gibson seems to confirm all the talk about Apple buying up Beats Electronics.
Beats’ founder is rapper and entrepreneur Dr. Dre (Andre Young), and he’s pointing right at the lens in Gibson’s video as he states:
The first billionaire in hip hop right here from the motherf—-n West Coast!”
The Financial Times was first to report the sale yesterday (May 8, 2014) that Apple is closing in on a $3.2 billion purchase of the high-end headphones and streaming music service, however at that time, representatives from Apple and Beats both declined comment.
Apparently the deal is done, so it’s all good now tho…
Clifford “T.I.” Harris is on the grind and he’s on a mission to “F*ck da City Up” with some hot new beats by Dre!
It’s no secret that Dr. Dre was in town last week working with Tip on his latest mixtape, which drops New Year’s day (January 1, 2012).
The two were spotted hanging out at various locations around Atlanta, including Stroker’s Strip Club, where they posed for the photo above and STK restaurant, where excited patrons tweeted about the sighting.
What could be hotter than a Tip/Dre collaboration??
Snoop De-Oh-double-Gee aka Calvin Broadus celebrated his big 4-0 last week with his wife Shaunte Broadus and kids by his side as he was presented with a cake topped by a Colt 45 malt liquor bottle.
Tha Doggfather held his private private birthday bash at Rolling Stone Lounge in Hollywood and he was treated to a performance by funk pioneer Bootsy Collins and a special birthday serenade by the legendary Chaka Khan.
The cute couple were also joined by several of Snoop’s celebrity friends, including Dr. Dre, Too $hort, The Lady of Rage, Warren G, DJ Quik, and Tyrese.
Remember Michel’le from back in the day? The singer had a squeaky, high-pitched speaking voice which totally changed once she opened her mouth to sing. Anyway, the old school singer has filed child support charges against her ex-hubby, Marion Suge Knight and is seeking over $40,000 of unpaid court-order spousal and child support for their 7 year old daughter, Balei (pictured above):
Singer Michel’le has filed child support charges against her Ex-husband Marion Suge Knight, reports the Wall Street Journal. Michel’le is asking for $40,476 in three-months of unpaid court-ordered spousal and child support. In addition to the $40,476, she is asking that she receive $13,492 in child support each month for her child Balei, whom she had with the former head of Death Row records seven years ago. In 1997, Toussaint “agreed to marry Knight while he was serving a prison sentence for assault and battery.” Soon after Bailei’s birth in 2002, her relationship with Suge Knight ended.
In the coming months, Michel’le will be heading to bankruptcy court since Suge is believed to be bankrupt; Suge filed for bankruptcy three years ago.
Michel’le also has another son named Marcel, with whom she had with rapper/producer Dr. Dre. (Source)
A lot of people are surprised to hear of Michel’le’s links to both Dre and Suge but she and Dre were in a longterm relationship way before he even left the World Class Wrecking Crew. Michel’le was even featured on a WCWC song, “Turn off the lights” and her 1st CD album was produced by her then boyfriend Dre. I’m almost positive her relationship with the both of them was one of the factors in Death Row’s demise.
