Rapper-producer Dr. Dre turns 55 today
Rap pioneer Dr. Dre was born Andre Romelle Young on February 18, 1965, in Compton, California. A music fan from the start, Dre started working as a DJ in his teens. His first major success came with the rap group N.W.A. and he later co-founded Death Row Records in 1991. In 1992, his first solo album, “The Chronic,” became a huge hit. He has also enjoyed success as a solo act and worked with Snoop Dogg. Dre started up Aftermath Entertainment in 1996 and signed Eminem and 50 Cent to his label. He eventually co-founded the company Beats Electronics with Jimmy Iovine — and made millions on its 2014 sale to Apple.
