  • Published 6 years ago

Dr. Dre brought the sound of the inner city to the suburban part, and made millions in the process. Andre Romelle Young, known by his stage name Dre, is one of the most successful rappers and music producers of all time.

Dre has overseen the careers of 2pac, Snoop Dog, Eminem, Xzibit, 50 Cent, the Game, Kendrick Lamar and many others. Dre is credited as the rapper who popularized the West Coast G-funk, a style in rap that is characterized as synthesizer-based, but with slow and heavy beats.

During his career, Dre has made millions out of music both as a rapper and as a producer, helping him earn the second spot as the richest figure in American hip-hop scene.

But how did his story began? Many people know him as the calm, and relaxed rapper, one that has rarely been a subject of controversy. But what many people don’t know that he has an outrageous persona, and that is what helped him build a career in the hip-hop music genre.

His motto “if you don’t like it, don’t buy it”, perfectly summarizes a life of a rapper that doesn’t care what the others say, just goes and makes music.
