Accoding to reports, Dre and Iovine made an appearance at the tech giants conference.
“New employee orientation starts at 9:00, and you don’t want to miss the free t-shirt,” Federighi told Dre in a tongue-in-cheek conversation. The company did not announce a job title for Dre. Iovine was not introduced, and neither Federighi, Cook, nor any other presenter mentioned Beats by name during the presentation. Iovine has joined Apple as part of the deal, however, as has Beats Music CEO Ian Rogers and chief creative officer and Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor. (Billboard)
Dr. Dre was recently named the wealthiest hip-hop artist alive after the Apple purchase.
“Billionaire.com, the lifestyle resource for high and ultra-high net worth individuals, based the ranking on data exclusively compiled by Wealth-X, the intelligence provider on the world’s ultra wealthy (those with over US$30 million). After the sale to Apple, Andre Young, AKA Dr Dre, knocks Puff Daddy into second place. Aside from making millions from album sales, record labels and side businesses such as fashion brands and film production, many of the top ten are also major philanthropists in their own right.” (PR Newswire)
