Dr. Dre To Be Honored By Grammys For His Trailblazing Production
Dr. Dre may be liked or disliked by many people, but no one can deny what he did for hip-hop music is extraordinary and continues with his good work. For many years his name is a symbol of a hit to come and good collaboration. He does not put borders on men and women, rap or other music. And that is what made him so successful.
Few months before the most important event in the music business – The Grammy Awards, Jan. 22, 2020 – everybody is talking about who is going to win and what. That is why it is no surprise that Andre Young (Dr. Dre’s real name) is going to take the award of the awards this year. These days the Recording Academy, which is the main body behind the Grammy Awards, announced its decision to honor the rapper with a trailblazing award for producing.
The career of Dre is very colorful and successful because he puts all his heart in what he does. He started with the glorious NWA, then a few years later he went solo, made many collaborations, but his producing is just out of this world. Throwback at “California Love”…yeah, now you got the reminder of such a great producer he is.
The awards he won prove that. He is not new to the Grammy as he himself has six and countless nominations. His latest achievement is with Eminem’s “Relapse” album in 2010. It was released in May 2009 and was only with original material. Dr. Dre and his Aftermath company engineered and produced the piece.
During the years Dre went multiplatinum with albums he collaborated and produced also with Snoop Dog, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Eve, Busta Rhymes and of course Tupac. His work went way across hip-hop music because his talent could not behold in frames and limited. Gwen Stefani is just one proof of that. Mary J. Blige – the Queen of rap herself owes her Billboard top place to Dr. Dre. “Family Affair” sent her to space and hold her there for a long time.
The Let Me Ride performer is very successful in business as well. In 2018 he was the third richest man in hip-hop music with a fortune estimated at 770 million dollars. Beats By Dre led to major success back in 2014. It seems like there are still many tops for him to reach and much work to be done.
