On November 6, 2021, the Universal Hip Hop Museum and AllHipHop.com are set to celebrate Hip Hop History Month by highlighting Dr. Dre and a fire skate party at the Eclipse Roller Rink in East New York, Brooklyn.
When people say Dr. Dre’s name, it is usually with reverence & respect 💯 The man who started his career as a DJ, producer, & vocalist for the World Class Wreckin’ Cru, can surely say that his name is synonymous with West Coast Hip Hop.
As a founding member of N.W.A., he helped break Gangsta Rap into the mainstream and by the time he became a solo artist (and producer), he simply became a staple on the charts.
Artists like Snoop, Eve, Eminem, and 50 Cent point to him as a major influencer in their lives and brands like his labels (Death Row, 1991-1996 & Aftermath 1996 to the present) and Beats by Dre allows him to say that he is one of the richest men in Hip Hop 💰
Fun fact: Dr. Dre’s name was inspired by the basketball player, Julius “Dr. J” Erving.
It was Saturday, November 6, 1982, D.J. O.C. and Crazy Eddie & The Fearless Four headlined a jam at the Eclipse Roller Rink in East New York, Brooklyn. Imagine paying $7.00 to see performing that night a 16-year-old Doug E. Fresh, the first recognized human beatbox, with his Get Fresh Crew brother D.J. Chill Will. Or even better a young DJ Grand Master “D,” before he joined the group that made him an international star, Whodini.
Also on that show was M.C. Tony & The Crew.
