Dr.dre is one of the most influential rappers of the west coast. He is an actor, rapper, producer and C.E.O of Aftermath records. He was one of the former co-owners of Deathrow records. Dr. Dre is known for his street rhymes and he has produced for some of the biggest rap stars such as Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 cent, The Game, Nate Dogg, D.O.C and Busta Rhymes.
Dr.Dre was one of the inventors of the hip hop style called G-funk. This hip hop music style dominated the whole style US charts in the early nineties. The main characteristics of this music style is it is heavy and slow. It is created on the synteseizers.
I think Dr.Dre's album 'The Chronic' was one of the best albums of the era which the G-funk dominated the charts. This album contains major hits and the productions are tight. Hip hop music drastically changed after Dr. Dre's former crew blew up. There were no provanity in hip hop until now. NWA was the group who dropped rhymes about the black gangsta lifestyle.
