Apple is preparing to finalize the purchase this week.

The acquisition was initially said to be valued at $3.2 billion, but the company has rounded down the amount to a $3 billion, after what sources indicate is a more accurate evaluation of Beats' actual worth.

Several reports surfaced earlier this week of Beats co-owner Dr. Dre's allegedly inebriated boast that he would become the first billionaire rapper following the acquisition, which some sources claim put the entire deal at risk.

Ironically, the lower $3 billion valuation would mean Dr. Dre would grosses a maximum of $750 million from the deal, which added to the $275 million he earned over the past three years would still put him just shy of a seven figure net worth due to taxes

.

Apple would meanwhile get the company's first music streaming service, Beats Music, which many analysts value almost as highly as its popular headphones and speaker brands.

So we could see Beats Audio in the new iPhone 6, iPod Touch 6th Gen, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 3, MacBook Air, EarPods, Etc...

Beats by Apple / Apple Beats / iBeats coming soon...
