Early Life

Dr. Dre, real name Andre Romelle Young, was born on the 18th February 1965, in Compton, California.

His parents married in 1964, separated in 1968, and divorced in 1972. His mother later remarried and had three children: two sons Jerome and Tyree, who are both deceased, and one daughter, Shameka.

Dre initially attended Vanguard Junior High School in Compton. However, due to the increase in gang violence, he moved to Roosevelt Junior High School, which was located in a safer district.

 

Career

Dr Dre's Career

In the mid 80’s, Dre was working at a local club, Eve After Dark. Dre would DJ at the club, after previously watching many others perform there. It was here that Dre met, DJ Yella, a future member of N.W.A.

The club had a small recording studio in a back room, which was used by Dre, and N.W.A to record some initial demos.

In 1986, N.W.A was formed, consisting of fellow rappers Ice Cube and Eazy-E, as well as DJ Yella and MC Ren. The group’s debut album, ‘Straight Outta Compton’, became a huge success.

Dre left the group in the early ’90s, after various disputes, and decided to go solo. He released his first single in 1992 under Death Row Records, founded by Suge Knight. His debut solo album was titled ‘The Chronic’.

In 1996, Dre left Death Row Records, founded Aftermath Entertainment, and released the album ‘Dr. Dre Presents the Aftermath’.

Dre has worked with the majority of the best artists in rap and hip-hop. He’s become one of the richest rappers in the world, despite all the issues he’s faced, including disputes, lawsuits, loss, and infringements.

As of September 2022, Dr. Dre’s net worth is $500 Million.

1. The Money’s Gonna Come

Dr. Dre stated that you shouldn’t be worried about the money. That’s not why you should be fully committed to something. You should do it because of the love you have for it.

If you make that ‘your why’, the money will come eventually. Don’t chase the money, chase your passion.
