Andre Romelle Young, otherwise known as Dr. Dre, hits the ripe age of 49 today.
Dre, straight outta Compton, California is best known for his seminal rap-work of the 90’s, as well as in his ‘mentor’ capacity of fellow superstar, Eminem.
Having worked with some of the biggest names in rap as he built his career, including being part of ‘NWA’, he can count the likes of Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent and late 2Pac & Notorious B.I.G as peers. His album ‘2001’ is seen as one of the greatest albums in modern rap music and has sold over 7.5 million albums worldwide.
Happy Birthday, Dr. Dre.
