Dr.Dre is the GREATEST Hip-Hip PRODUCER of all time without a doubt (Timbaland is a close second). A West Coast G, Dr.Dre found Death Row with Suge Knight and MERKED the whole game with hits such as the chronic, 2001, Snoop's Doggystyle and 2PACs All Eyez On Me, killing the East Coast (Puff Daddy is pathetic dancing like a bitch in his videos and doesn't even write his own rhymes! what a clown. he has no street cred in the game, but is a successful entrepreneur). The east coast still has the sickest MCs and lyrically probably are superior to west coast rappers.
Dr.Dre started off with the World Class Wreckin Cru, created NWA and helped launch the careers of Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent and The Game. He has only released 2 SOLO albums in his career and both are regarded as CLASSICS!! He invented the concept of West Coast G-Funk which consists of funky, laid-back synthesised beats and rhymes. If anyone wantz 2 make PAPER go see the doctor and let him give you your medication and turn u in2 a star. Every beat he produces is BOOM!!
Dr.Dre is currently running the rap game even though he hasn't released an album for 5 years, (2001 in 1999!) He is producing projects for his Aftermath artists and making Eve, Busts Rhymes, The GAME, Stat Quo all successful. His production is relentless, inexorable and incessant and he has even helped make Hip-Hop COMMERCIAL with his Interscope/Aftermath artists and quality production. Gets RESPECT from musicians all over the world regardless of the music they make.
I have been waiting for Dr.Dre's third and final album DETOX to drop for the last 3 years! Everyone knows its gonna be a str8 CLASSIC 4 SURE!! Dr.Dre is getting old now but still remains a PIONEER in the game and is the SICKEST BEAT-MAKER OF ALL TIME!
