Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine

Getting Gigs at Apple

as Part of Beats Deal

5/10/2014 6:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0510-dr-dre-jimmy-iovine-tmz-01Move over Tim Cook ... Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine are coming to Apple.

As part of the massive deal that has Apple buying Beats Headphones for a reported $3.2 billion, Dre and Iovine "are likely to take senior positions" at Apple, so reports the Wall Street Journal.

The WSJ goes on to say its unclear what type of roles the men would have.  The buzz we're hearing ... Dre will report directly to Cook.

Once the deal is complete, Dre stands to become the first billionaire in rap ... well, before taxes.

Straight outta Cuppertino ...

I knew it. Dre, first thing is to hook up the newest update for Logic Pro. Make a special "Dr. Dre" upgrade you can buy that hooks the DAW the way you would in the studio with exclusive stock sounds created by you.

Watch Detox only be available on Itunes when it drops too.

Truth    

APPLE MUST BE IDIOTS. THESE MORONS DRE AND IOVINE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE ENGINEERING AND TECH BEHIND THE PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT OF BEATS. THEY JUST MARKETING MEN WHO SCREWED MONSTER AKA NOEL LEE OUT OF THE COPYRIGHT AND PATENTS. THE REAL GENIUS BEHIND BEATS IS NOEL LEE (ASIAN DUDE) WHO CREATED AND FOUNDED THE DAMN THING. POINT BLANK! DUDE MUST BE PISSED AND RIGHTLY SO... #TRUTH!!
