Former Member of World Class Wreckin' Cru, then N.W.A.. He started High Powered Productions with DJ Yella. The two were very influenced by Zapp and Roger, DJ Pooh, The Bomb Squad, and Boogie Down Productions.

Dr. Dre was the DJ for his first artist, The D.O.C..
Dr. Dre is the founder and current CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics.
Dre was previously the co-owner of, and an artist on, Death Row Records. He has produced albums for and overseen the careers of many recording artists, including 2Pac, The D.O.C., Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Xzibit, Ben Buford, Knoc-Turn'al, 50 Cent, The Game, Mel Man, DJ Khalil, Taz Arnold, Lady Of Rage, and Kendrick Lamar. He is credited as a key figure in the popularization of West Coast G-funk, a style of rap music characterized as synthesizer-based with slow, heavy beats (G-Funk was started by Above The Law and also popularized by DJ Battlecat). In 2014, Dr. Dre was ranked as the second richest figure in the American hip hop scene by Forbes with a net worth of $550 million; he is at the top of the 2015 Forbes list, with an estimated pre-tax take of $620 million in 2014.

Dre began his career as a member of the World Class Wreckin' Cru and later found fame with the influential gangsta rap group N.W.A with Eazy-E, Ice Cube, MC Ren, and DJ Yella, which popularized the use of explicit lyrics in rap to detail the violent gang lifestyle of Compton and South Central, Los Angeles. Ice-T heavily influenced the group with his song "6 in the Morning". Dre's 1992 solo debut The Chronic, released under Death Row Records, led him to become one of the best-selling American performing artists of 1993 and to win a Grammy Award for the single "Let Me Ride". That same year he produced Death Row labelmate Snoop Dogg's quadruple platinum debut Doggystyle, and even molded artists into top-notch producers such as his step-brother Warren G, which led to his multi-platinum debut Regulate...G Funk Era in 1994, and Snoop Dogg's cousin Daz Dillinger which led to the double platinum debut album Dogg Food by Tha Dogg Pound in 1995.

In 1996, he left Death Row Records to establish his own label, Aftermath Entertainment. He produced a compilation album titled Dr. Dre Presents the Aftermath in 1996, and released a solo album titled 2001 in 1999. During the 2000s, he focused on production for other artists, while occasionally contributing vocals to songs. Dr. Dre signed Eminem in 1998 and 50 Cent in 2002 to his record label respectively, while contributing production on their albums. He has won six Grammy Awards, including Producer of the Year. Rolling Stone ranked Dre at 56 on their list of "100 Greatest Artists of All-Time".

Dr. Dre also had acting roles, starring in "The Wash" (with Snoop Dogg), a film by his Compton friend, DJ Pooh. Also "Training Day" and "Set it Off".
Dre allowed R&B Singer Tyrese to announce to the world that Dre had sold his "Beats By Dre" for a little over $3 Billion Dollars. Shortly after the announcement, Dr. Dre (along with Director F. Gary Gray and Ice Cube) saw the success of their critically acclaimed film, "Straight Outta Compton". A Biopic about the lives of N.W.A. and Erick "Eazy E" Wright.

Dr. Dre has also worked with producers such as Lord Finesse, Q-Tip, Pete Rock, and DJ Premier. On his radio show "The Pharmacy", Dre admitted to being a major fan of legendary producer, J Dilla (deceased).
