(Undated)  --  Apple is angling to buy a big piece of Beats in a deal that could make Dr. Dre the first rap billionaire.  

The electronics giant reportedly is offering $3.2 billion dollars for Beats' streaming, headphone, and speaker divisions.  

The "Wall Street Journal" reports a deal of that size would probably net Dre the $450 million the paper estimates it would take to push him over the billion dollar mark.
