Dr. Dre

Dr. Dre has already presided over two label deals with major career-altering consequences. After bouncing from pioneering gangsta rap super-group N.W.A in 1991, Dre founded Death Row Records with Suge Knight and released two game-changing smash albums, The Chronic and Snoop's  Doggy Style. After tiring of Suge and his alleged shady practices, Dre formed a new label, Aftermath, in 1996. A few years later, he was back on top with his own Chronic 2001 and the signings of Eminem, 50 Cent and Game.
