Dr Dre begun his music odyssey as Dr J, DJing at a club called Eve After Dark in 1984 and joined World Class Wreckin’ Cru later that year. Dr Dre met rapper O’Shea Jackson, or as wider entertainment knows him, Ice Cube and formed NWA in 1986 whose songs such as F*** Tha Police saw them get up the noses of several people, with bans often following their every move. Dr Dre left NWA in 1991 and went about creating his own solo career, notably with the influential album The Chronic in 1992 which basically set the tone for hip hop in the 1990s with its G-Funk ways.

Dr Dre also founded the Beats audio equipment company which was acquired by Apple for $3billion in 2014.
