Dr. Dre has been in the headlines this year for his work outside of making albums. Earlier this year, Apple confirmed a multi-billion dollar deal to acquire Dre’s Beats.
“I’ve always known in my heart that Beats belonged with Apple,” Jimmy Iovine said in a statement. “The idea when we started the company was inspired by Apple’s unmatched ability to marry culture and technology. Apple’s deep commitment to music fans, artists, songwriters and the music industry is something special.”
