Recording Academy to Honor Dr. Dre for Decades of Work in Production

Dr. Dre, one of the biggest names in entertainment production, has worked with the likes of Eminem and Tupac. Now, he’s being honored by the Recording Academy.

On Friday, the Recording Academy announced that it will pay homage to Dr. Dre on Jan. 22 at Village Studios in Los Angeles in its Producers & Engineers Wing. It is one in a long list of honors that Dr. Dre has received over the years. Dr. Dre also has won six Grammys, three of which were for production.

The Recording Academy, which runs the Grammy Awards, recognizes achievements in the entertainment industry as well as advocates in different sectors of the business, such as for the preservation of recordings to offering internship opportunities.

Dr. Dre discovered and launched the careers of Eminem and 50 Cent, and has produced music for Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Eve, Jay-Z, Nas, Busta Rhymes, Xzibit, Gwen Stefani, Mary J. Blige and The Game.

In 2018, Dr. Dre was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame for his 1992 album The Chronic.

It was Dr. Dre who helped create an entire new genre of music in the late 1980s — “gangsta rap” — with hip-hop group N.W.A’s album Straight Outta Compton.

From there, he founded Aftermath Entertainment and was named No. 1 on Forbes’ list of the world’s richest musicians in 2015. Far ahead of his time, Dr. Dre also founded Beats Electronics in 2008, eventually starting a streaming subscription service, Beats Music.

Apple bought both companies for $3 billion in 2014.
