Considering how smart Dre and Lovine were to exclude Monster from any and all sales of Beats By Dre, I'm sure the sale to Apple includes profits made from future streaming efforts based solely on the namesake. Maybe not a billionaire yet, but give it a few years...

he's not gonna get a billion. he'll get a nice check for sure but not 1 billion. Still that shows what you can get if you align yourself with a brand that caters to all demographics. Not just some hood ish. Salute to that cat.
