Pay day for Dre.

88 posts in this topic

RAPPER Dr Dre was celebrating yesterday after selling a share of his must-have headphones brand for £191MILLION.

The 46-year-old US hip-hop star handed over 51 per cent of Beats Electronic to Asian smart phone giant HTC.

Dre - who has produced for Eminem and 50 Cent - co-founded the firm just three years ago.

The Beats, costing up to £350 a set, have become popular fashion items. Lady GaGa has launched a range and Premier League footballers are seen with them.

HTC's Peter Chou said: "It's an exciting brand that's been built around something very special."

He shouldn't have sold it too soon. The headphones have been a huge success. Personally I think they are overrated. But, am happy for him.

It's def nor sh*t. It's more of a fashion accessory for most. I won't recommend it for mixing in the studio either. The are very comfy. But fore there is that much quality you can get of an mp3 format.. You can get something between the 50 and 150 pound Mark that are just as good IMO.

He sold it at the right time, especially for that amount, hype is dying down.
