Dr. Dre is celebrating in a big way!

The hip-hop mogul has officially sold Beats by Dre to Apple for $3.2 as we reported yesterday.

Last night, he partied with some friends — including Tyrese — and they posted a video on Facebook.

“They need to update the Forbes list. Shit just changed,” said Tyrese.

“In a big way,” added Dre. “The first billionaire in hip-hop right here from the motherfu**ing West Coast.”

According to Forbes, the deal puts Dre’s net worth to around $800 million, which is $100 million more than Diddy.

Despite being knocked from the throne, Diddy sent out his congratulations to Dre

“This is BIG! This is Historical! If anyone deserves it, it’s you! Congratulations Dr. Dre!” wrote Diddy.
