It hasn’t even been a month and Apple must be treating Dr. Dre pretty good. The Beats head honcho was recently spotted out in Hollywood giving barmaids bands without making them dance.

Via Radar Online:

Beats by Dre founder and iconic hip-hop rapper and producer Dr. Dre, 49, partied at the Skybar in West Hollywood’s Mondrian Hotel on June 12, taking shots of tequila.

As security escorted him out around 2 am, the big-hearted star dropped the waitress a $5,000 tip.

“She was stunned!” says an insider, adding that the mogul was happy to take photos with fans and chat with the deejay, Sanni Val Fleury from Immigre.

Earlier in the night, the newly-minted billionaire attended the Full Moon Bazaar in the hotel, picking up a pricey Mac & Lou bracelet for his wife, Nicole Threatt.

The tip was undoubtedly couch change for the legendary musician, who just bought Tom Brady’s old mansion for a cool $40 million. He’s not recklessly spending without any rentention, though. His former home is currently on the market for $35 million.
