    Great Book

    This book is about Dr. Dre and how his life panned out. The Book starts out with him as a young child and what he went through to become what he is today. It lets you know what he had to do to get where he is now. A Major theme in this book is to not give up. As well as letting the youth know that they should stay in school and work hard to achieve goals. I liked the fact of how it related to my life so much and it gave me inspiration. I also liked the fact that I am very similar to Dre and how we share the same interests. I didn't like the fact that it went off about people that I didn't know a thing about and there wasn't very much explanation behind them. Some one should read this book if they want to be inspired or are ver interested in rap music. I would also recommend to some one into Dj-ing, i feel like they will receive a great amount of insight on todays music. I give this book a 5 out of 5.

    Dre's True Story

    DR. DRE: THE BIOGRAPHY shows you everything you'd want to know about the producer. The book starts with a different more detailed look at Dre's teenage years, from his point of view, then covers the World Class Wreckin' Cru and N.W.A. with amazing detail before reaching the Death Row period. What's great is the book shows this label in a new way. Then it shows how Dre had troubles with Aftermath before working with Eminem, 50, The Game and others. Every phase is presented with new details and respect for Dre the artist and Dre the human being. And the book does get into the music, Dre's many images over the years, his few political lyrics, and the drama of recent years that capsized The Source, lowered rap's sales and led to overlapping feuds. DR. DRE: THE BIOGRAPHY is easily the best thing ever written about Dre and one of the best rap books ever.
