The Evolution of Dr. Dre

Dre left the sequins, electro and the World Class Wreckin' Cru behind when he formed N.W.A. with Eazy-E, Ice Cube, MC Ren, DJ Yella and Arabian Prince. The pioneering group brought gangsta rap to the masses with their seminal, double-platinum debut, Straight Outta Compton, which featured classics like "Fuck tha Police" and the title track. Dre had already established his niche — funky, multi-layered beats laced with aggressive, criminal-minded shock-and-awe raps.
