Jimmy Iovine And Dr. Dre Get Funny New Job Titles At Apple
With such an extensive history in the music industry—especially in the hip-hop world, with affiliations with Death Row, Aftermath, Bad Boy, TDE, Shady Records, G-Unit, Star Trak and more—it's no surprise that Iovine is probably the most-referenced executive in hip-hop. As he leaves Interscope for the green pastures of the tech world, XXL has pulled together 33 hip-hop songs that name check the former Interscope chief. —Dan Rys
What executive roles Dre and Iovine will take is unknown however we do know the title. Their titles will be “Jimmy” and “Dre,” according to the Wall Street Journal.
It will be a full-time gig for Iovine and Dre however, the legendary hip-hop artist will still produce and make music. How cool of a life do these two have?
Apple purchased Beats Electronics— the company Iovine launched with Dr. Dre in 2008— and its streaming service, Beats Music.
