Dr. Dre, seems not to stop anytime now, he recently teamed up with HTC over the summer for a $300 million deal, which he explained will help diversify the Beats product line.
“I am trying to build my electronics company, Beats Electronics. We just signed a major deal with HTC and we have cell phones coming out in the next two weeks. The phone will be on Verizon and, like I said, it is going to be out in the next 2 weeks. I am trying to be number 2 to Apple, and number 2 to Apple is not a bad position to be in.”
Dr. Dre explained that his goal is to “take over everything with a speaker,” which he is well on his way after signing a deal with Chrysler to outfit their cars with Beats speakers. (HipHopBlog)
