Dr. Dre is a rare breed of legend in the sense that, well, there’s no telling when he’ll ever truly peak. Not only did he achieve the rare feat of becoming a rap sensation as both a group member of N.W.A. in addition to his later work as a solo star, the multifaceted music mogul also used his dual skills as an in-demand producer to spearhead the superstar status of successors like Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Eminem and a handful of others. If that’s not enough, he kicked off his second act in a big way — we’re talking billion-dollar big! — with a lucrative joint deal alongside Apple in the form of their popular Beats By Dre line of headphones.

Beats, rhymes and life — all amazing qualities that describe a man that’s always “kept our heads ringin’,” and now he’s received the rightful recognition of a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame!

Surrounded by family, loved ones and each of the aforementioned emcees that he brought into the game, Dre was all smiles during his induction ceremony this past Tuesday (March 19). In addition to Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent and Eminem, a few others in attendance also included Xzibit, his Beats partner Jimmy Iovine, Paul Rosenberg, DJ Quik, Top Dawg and others.

More from Dre’s day at hand below, via Billboard:

 

“Dre officially received the 2,775th star during a star-studded presentation on Tuesday afternoon (March 19). Friends and hip-hop associates who have been in Dre’s corner for decades, like Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Eminem, Jimmy Iovine and more, were in attendance.

The production icon took the podium after Iovine and Snoop Dogg showered Dr. Dre with love and appreciation for what he’s given to hip-hop.

‘Growing up in Compton, I never imagined that I would one day be represented here among some of my childhood heroes,’ he began.

‘I’ve been fortunate enough to make a living doing exactly what I love to do. How about that? Isn’t that the dream?’ Dre asked the crowd. ‘Over the course of my career, I’ve had the privilege of finding and nurturing new talent as well as pushing the boundaries in hip-hop both in content and substance.’

Dr. Dre continued: ‘But I’m most proud of elevating the sound and clarity of how we experience hip-hop. Getting that thing right is one of my greatest achievements. I love that this honor is unique to Los Angeles and brings fans from all over the world to connect with their favorite artists. I’ll be here forever.'”

 

Even with a Coachella performance to his name that introduced us to the now-infamous holographic 2Pac and a Super Bowl Halftime performance that is cemented in hip-hop history, there is still more to be seen from the mind of Dr. Dre. We’re all ears!
