Dr. Dre’s Business Empire Worth $1 Billion – All Because of This ONE Product
Most of us probably didn’t know that Dr. Dre’s real name is Andre Romelle Young. Similarly, there are a lot of facts about this billionaire hip-hop king that fans aren’t aware of. Before Dre turned 52, he has a lot of things credited to his creativity.
Dre was born and raised in a poor family but he climbed the ladder of success and ended up in one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the world. From a very young age, he knew that dedication and hard work pay off, and he didn’t take his fame and status for granted.
Forbes named the business mogul in a number of years among its wealthiest artists with his net worth estimated above $830 million. In 2014, Dre sold his Beats Electronics to Apple that earned him the largest single-year payday for any musician ever. He made a profit of about $750 million before taxes from that sell.
Dre has a lavish taste in properties. He purchased a four acre estate for $40 million in the swanky Brentwood, Calif., neighborhood of Los Angeles after Apple paid him.
Dre didn’t allow the money to cloud his creativity as he went on to create the 2015 “Straight Outta Compton” movie. The movie amassed $201 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo.
