Dr Dre voordat hij beroemd werd

Dr. Dre originally went by the name Dr. J after his favourite basketball player Julius ‘Dr. J’ Erving. He was first inspired to get into music when he heard the the song 'The Adventures Of Grandmaster Flash On The Wheels Of Steel.' That lit a fire inside of him and he would spend countless hours in his room toying with records and mixers. He fathered his first child at the age of 16 and was do to do music the way he wanted to do it, but without the capital he had to listen to others. He was a member of the world Class Wreckin' Cru, who were originally called Disco Construction but beside some night club gigs, things weren’t exactly taking off. Then in 1987, Dr. Dre went to prison for overdue parking tickets. Local drug dealer Eazy-E bailed him out which resulted in the beginning of N.W.A.
