Dr. Dre

Andre Romelle Young (born February 18, 1965), known professionally as Dr. Dre, is an American rapper, audio engineer, record producer, and businessman. He is the founder and CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics, and previously co-founded, co-owned, and was the president of Death Row Records. Dr. Dre began his career as a member of the World Class Wreckin' Cru in 1985 and later found fame with the gangsta rap group N.W.A. The group popularized explicit lyrics in hip hop to detail the violence of street life. During the early 1990s, Dre was credited as a key figure in the crafting and popularization of West Coast G-funk, a subgenre of hip hop characterized by a synthesizer foundation and slow, heavy beats. Dre's solo debut studio album The Chronic (1992), released under Death Row Records, made him one of the best-selling American music artists of 1993. It earned him a Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance for the single "Let Me Ride", as well as several accolades for the single "Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang". That year, he produced Death Row labelmate Snoop Doggy Dogg's debut album Doggystyle and mentored producers such as his stepbrother Warren G (leading to the multi-platinum debut Regulate...G Funk Era in 1994) and Snoop Dogg's cousin Daz Dillinger (leading to the double-platinum debut Dogg Food by Tha Dogg Pound in 1995), as well as mentor to upcoming producers Sam Sneed and Mel-Man. In 1996, Dr.

Dr. Dre Presents: The Aftermath

Dr. Dre Presents: The Aftermath is a compilation album by American and West Coast rapper Dr. Dre. It was released on November 26, 1996, as the first album on Aftermath Entertainment. Dre's scarce vocals, newly critiquing gangsta rap, marked Dre's reemergence after his March 1996 departure from Death Row Records, where Dre himself had propelled gangsta rap into the mainstream. (Dre had co-founded Death Row in 1991 amid his embattled split from Ruthless Records and its pioneering, gangsta rap group N.W.A.)The 1996 album's first single, a Dre solo, is the only track with Dre as main vocalist, "Been There, Done That." The second single was "East Coast/West Coast Killas," prominent rappers from California, New York, and Texas rebuking rap's recently ugly East–West "war." A platinum seller, the album peaked at #6 on the Billboard 200 and at #3 on the Top R&B/Hip Hop-Albums charts. Nonetheless, quite unlike Dre's prior album—The Chronic, released in December 1992 as Dre's debut solo album and Death Row Records' first album—Dre's new offering, not a standout, received mixed reviews and lukewarm appraisals. The Glove, among the album's coproducers, reasoned, "People were upset because they wanted a 'Dr. Dre' album. They weren't looking for a compilation album.

It's On (Dr. Dre) 187um Killa

It's On (D̵r̵.̵ ̵D̵r̵e̵) 187um Killa is the second and final EP released by rapper Eazy-E during his lifetime. It was released in October 1993, largely to answer Dr. Dre's debut solo album The Chronic, which, massively popular that year, repeatedly attacks Eazy. Eazy's most successful EP or LP, it sold 110,600 copies in its first week, and peaked at number 5 on the Billboard 200 as well as at number 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. In 1994, it was certified double-platinum, over 2 million copies sold.To follow up his 1988 album Eazy-Duz-It, Eazy had planned another LP, in fact a double, Temporary Insanity. Yet to exploit Dre's spotlight and his May 1993 single "Fuck wit Dre Day", which mainly disses him, Eazy changed plans. On this EP, shots at Dre are absent from only three tracks: "Gimmie That Nutt", "Any Last Werdz", and "Boyz N Tha Hood (G-Mix)". The lead single, "Real Muthaphuckkin G's"—which, alike "Any Last Werdz", carried a music video—became Eazy's most successful single.
