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

With Easy-E and Ice Cube in NWA back in the day, CREATED this whole game. Everything from 50 cent to DMX, whatever rap u listen to, wouldn't EXIST without Dre and NWA starting the gangster rap scene.
Any rapper who swears in a song owes respect to Dr. Dre

Dr. Dre was first known when he started making music in a group known as the ''World Class Wreckin' Kru''. He then moved on to the gangsta rap super group called N.W.A. Here it was made obvious that he was a much better producer than a rapper and after the group split up, he made his own music with the help of Snoop Dogg, Suge Knight and many other producers and artists. After making albums like 'The Chronic' and '2001' he was known as the best rap/hip hop producer ever, and still is today, the only other producer who would stand a chance against his skill is DJ Premier, but in my eyes he still is and always will be the best producer ever.

His 3 Best Albums

Dr.Dre is not only the most influential producer in hip-hop, he is probably the reason that hip-hop will have to redefine what it means to be a producer. Today, everyone thinks that hip-hop means "beat-maker". But many Producers of music are not beat-makers. Instead they are the brains behind those who make the music and develop the lyrics. This is Dre...and he's a beatmaker. Every artist who has worked with Dre seems to testify that Dre does much more than bring in tracks and records with them. Dre seems to be involved with every element from blueprinting the "layout" of the album, to helping the artist write and arrange their lyrics for the tracks, to editing tracks done by other beat-makers, to making his own beats for the artist. That's a producer -- and that is what Dr.Dre brings to the table of not just his labelists, but the hip-hop industry as a whole.
