Fans of hip hop and popular culture know Andre "Dr. Dre" Young as the Los Angeles rapper who, with his group N.W.A, popularized gansta rap in the late 80s, founded the formidable Death Row record label in the 90s, and continues to make names for his protégés in the new millennium. In this biography, high school-aged readers and above can learn of the influences of funk and political poetry on N.W.A, Dre's discovery of artists like Snoop Doggy Dogg and Eminem, and his involvement in controversies surrounding hip hop personalities Tupak Shakur, Suge Knight, and Notorious B.I.G., among other topics. This book includes a timeline of Dr. Dre's life and career. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
