Dr.Dre Honored With Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Dr Dre joins Ice Cube, 2Pac and Snoop Dogg as the 2,775th star on the Walk of Fame.

Joining the ranks of rappers such as Ice Cube, 2Pac, and Snoop Dogg, American rapper Dr. Dre was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

His star lies next to Snoop Dogg’s star, and is the 2,775th star.

He received the star during a star-studded presentation on Tuesday afternoon. His close associates Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent and Eminem were in attendance.

Dre took the podium and gave a speech.

“Growing up in Compton, I never imagined that I would one day be represented here among some of my childhood heroes,” he began.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to make a living doing exactly what I love to do. How about that? Isn’t that the dream?” Dre asked the crowd. “Over the course of my career, I’ve had the privilege of finding and nurturing new talent as well as pushing the boundaries in hip-hop both in content and substance.

“But I’m most proud of elevating the sound and clarity of how we experience hip-hop. Getting that thing right is one of my greatest achievements. I love that this honor is unique to Los Angeles and brings fans from all over the world to connect with their favorite artists. I’ll be here forever.”

Dre broke through as the sonic architect and co-founder of the seminal rap group N.W.A and earned his first No. 1 atop the Billboard Hot 100 with 2Pac’s “California Love” in 1995.
