Dre began his career as a member of the World Class Wreckin’ Cru. He rose to prominence as a member of the iconic gangsta rap group N.W.A, along with Eazy-E, Ice Cube, MC Ren, and DJ Yella, which popularized graphic lyrics in rap to depict the violence of street life. His 1992 solo debut The Chronic, released by Death Row Records, made him one of the best-selling American performing artists of 1993, and earned him a Grammy Award for the track “Let Me Ride.”
That same year, he produced Death Row labelmate Snoop Dogg’s quadruple platinum debut Doggystyle and mentored producers such as his step-brother Warren G (who went on to produce Snoop Dogg’s cousin Daz Dillinger’s 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).
Dr. Dre left Death Row Records in 1996 to start his own company, Aftermath Entertainment. In 1996, he released Dr. Dre Presents the Aftermath, a compilation album, and in 1999, he released 2001, a solo album. Dr. Dre concentrated on producing other artists throughout the 2000s, occasionally providing vocals.
