Dr. Dre Honored With Star On Hollywood’s Walk Of Fame




As reported by ET Online, on March 19th, 2024 Dr. Dre, the nine-time GRAMMY Award-winning artist and producer, received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the Recording category. Collaborators Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent, and music impresario Jimmy Iovine were present to celebrate the occasion. 


During the ceremony, Iovine lauded Dre's legacy as a mega-producer and mentor for the hip-hop genre. "Dr. Dre is the greatest ever," Iovine said. "In fact, Billboard just named him the greatest hip-hop producer of all time! And I heard some of the other music he's making right now -- he's coming for other genres." He went on further to state, "Dre is the greatest partner, friend, ally you could possibly have.”


Dr. Dre co-founded the influential rap group N.W.A., launched his successful solo career with the release of 1992's acclaimed album, The Chronic, and has also mentored and worked with several hip-hop superstars such as Anderson .Paak, Eminem, 50 Cent, and Kendrick Lamar. 


Snoop Dogg also praised Dre and spoke about their close friendship. "I wanna thank me for listening to Dre for over the years and letting him be my teacher, mentor, brother, guardian, protector, and most importantly, a good friend," he said. 



Snoop went from speaking to rapping. "Dr. Dre, my brother from another mother, a rock in the sand on the beach he'd soon discover, now we deep cover blood brothers on a mission. Dre's edition," he rapped in part. "House with no furniture, studio in the back with a little bit of food in the kitchen. Long Beach to Compton to Calabasas compositions. Pay attention. Quincy had Michael, they rewrote the cycle. So if Dre is Q and Mike is Snoop, we bang G thang motherf**king supergroup Death Row."





"Now take a look at us, over 30 years later and we still on the grind in the studio and you still make me do every line 100 motherf**king times. Still," Snoop continued. "And I thank you for that, perfectionist. I thank you for being a perfectionist and always pushing me to be great. You always bring out the best of the Dogg, Dr. Dre and that I do appreciate."


Snoop concluded his speech saying, "Together we created magic in the studio and our collaborations have left a mark on the world of music." 


Ana Martinez, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, praised Dre in a statement. "Dr. Dre's star will serve as a lasting symbol of his immense talent and enduring legacy in the world of music," she said. "What is special regarding the location chosen for Dr. Dre's star is that it will be next to the star of his long-time friend Snoop Dogg!"
