Have you ever wondered exactly how Eminem ended up being the first white rapper to be widely respected in the industry? And how him and Dr. Dre came to be such tight friends?
This video reveals how Dr. Dre discovered Eminem, how Eminem had been making a name for himself on the local scene for years, and how the whole thing snowballed.
The most interesting aspect is how it almost didn’t happen. Dre wanted to sign Eminem, but some of the studio execs were dead set against it purely because Eminem is white.
In the end Dre got his man, and neither of them has looked back since. And now, thanks to his dumb headphones, Dre is worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
