Dr Dre
Artist Name

Dr. Dre is a stage name for Andre Romell Young, an American rapper and record producer. He co-founded, co-owned, and served as president of Death Row Records before becoming the founder and CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics.

In 1985, Dr. Dre joined the World Class Wreckin' Cru and eventually rose to stardom with the gangster rap group N.W.A. The trio made explicit hip-hop songs famous by describing the violence of street life.

Early in the 1990s, West Coast G-funk, a hip hop style distinguished by a synthesizer basis and sluggish, heavy beats, was created and popularized in large part because to Dre.

During the 2000s, Dre focused on producing other artists, occasionally contributing vocals. He signed Eminem in 1998 and 50 Cent in 2002, and co-produced their albums. He has produced albums for and overseen the careers of many other rappers, including the D.O.C., Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, Knoc-turn'al, the Game, Kendrick Lamar, and Anderson .Paak.
