THE Hip-Hop heavyweight, he is the pinnacle of producing.
He started in World Class Wrecking Kru, then went on to NWA, where he, along with Eazy-E, took the super group to new heights. Unforunately, he and Eazy-E had a falling out due to him leaving to join Death Row. This marked the point where the group which no one thought could ever be stopped... stopped. Earlier, Ice Cube and MC Ren left, believing Dre and Eazy were taking more money.

Dre then went on to collaborate with artists such as Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, and of course, "The Don Kiluminati" AKA Makaveli AKA 2Pac.

He then left Death Row to start his own label. This started a beef with 2Pac, who considered him a traitor for leaving the Row. (Funnily enough, 2Pac was leaving Death Row to start Amaru Records when he was killed)

He now is CEO of Aftermath Records, a label running under Interscope Entertainment. He now frequently collaborates with, and produces for, artists such as The Game, G-Unit, Eminem, Obie Trice, Xzibit and many more. He is extremely rich and powerful, holding much sway over the Hip-Hop world

Dr. Dre is the best rap producer there ever was(he's also very good at rapping too), he makes the most awesome beats ever heard. He created Snoop Dogg, he helped 2Pac be the greatest rapper ever, he pretty much saved Eminem's life, he created 50 Cent(even though I don't like him that much)together with Eminem, he also helped 50 Cent create G-Unit(I don't them that much either), and he created The Game. Dr. Dre created gangsta rap together with N.W.A.(N.W.A. was made up of Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, MC Ren, and Dj Yella). Dr. Dre also founded 2 of the greatest labels there ever were: Death Row Records (togehter with Suge Knight) and Aftermath Entertainment.
Straight Outta Compton(with N.W.A.)

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!
