Tyrese Is Hip-Hop’s First Billionaire
There was no way to see this coming. But it happened. Tyrese Gibson: hip-hop’s first billionaire.
It was announced yesterday that Apple is in talks to purchase headphone/music giant Beats Electronics for $3.2 billion. Make sense now? Awesome.
To celebrate, he taped a hangout session with rapper/businessman Dr. Dre. And what a time they had.
Tyrese begins by talking about Tyrese, saying, “It’s not often you get to listen to Beats with Mr. Beats himself.” Dr. Dre agrees.
An ecstatic Tyrese then says, “Oh shit,” a few times and Dre responds with, “I like what you’re doing man,” presumably referring to the act of becoming a Tyrese-billionaire. Dre follows that with, “Tyrese in this motherfucker.”
Because what a day for Tyrese, hip-hop’s first billionaire.
Tyrese then admits he and/or Dre is “drunk off Heineken” (which seems appropriate considering his recent fortune), slurs his words a bunch, says “another level” (of wealth, apparently), and then barks “Billionaire Boys Club, for real, homie.”
Tyrese can’t stop smiling, and it makes sense. Because he’s a billionare now.
Tyrese (backed by Dre) then alerts the world that “the Forbes list just changed.” Because last time, there was no Tyrese. But that’s the past. Because Black-Ty is a billionaire now. More Forbes thoughts from Tyrese:
“It came out like two weeks ago, they need to update the Forbes list. Shit just changed.”
The ever-supportive Dre follows that with, “In a big way.”
Dre continues, almost giving Tyrese a toast of sorts.
“The first billionaire in hip-hop.”
“Right here from the motherfucking West Coast. Believe it.”
This speech excites Tyrese, and he can no longer remain humble. So he proceeds to C-walk in a way only a billionaire can pull off.
Despite ending the clip by berating all other nonbillionaires, it’s fine. He gets a pass. Because it’s his day. The day Tyrese just became a billionaire.
