Dre will be inducted as a producer for sure, and maybe a second time as a member of NWA. One of the top creative forces in popular music of the last 20 years.

I think Dre is suitible to be inducted as a producer and a artist.

definatly yes a great producer and artist
Posted by Edward Liam Buckler on Saturday, 12.2.06 @ 02:38am
yea hes a great producer and thats what will get him in but he will not be in as an artist because rap is not part of the rock hall if they want him in as an artist they need to open a rap hall of fame

Hes more likely to get in on producing. Rhyming words is hardly 'art'

He may get in as a producer, but he'll have a shot with NWA.

Sum_Guy why is moving your fingers up and down on a guitar and yelling more of an art then rhyming

He'll certainly get in some day. Deservedly so, IMO. Nasty lyrics, but hypnotic beats.
Posted by Paul in KY on Thursday, 07.17.08 @ 11:57am
I think so.He isnt as good as DJ premier or Marly Marl as a producer but hes the 3rd best producer.

I could think of 7 better producers in hip-hop alone.

How can you be a producer when you never produce. Using samples of other artist music. Copyright Infringement.
Posted by Joe-Skee on Wednesday, 01.21.09 @ 14:53pm
Shut up Joe-Skee.It's not copywrite ingringement if you get permission to do it.Which is what all hip-hop producers do now.And most of the producers on my list don't even use samples.
Posted by Marcus on Friday, 02.6.09 @ 11:34am
You Shut up Marcus.Every So-called producer on your list depends heavily on samples. Truth hurts. Now Step In the Arena. So we can Break some Atoms.

Dr. Dre was a musical genius. Although hip hop involves sampling beats, Dre worked back in a time period in which producing tracks required playing instruments from scratch. Dre is an experienced musician with the Keyboard and sound synthesizers as well as turn tables. Dre's music from the N.W.A. to the Chronic tracks have influenced various levels of Rock Music. 1st ballot hall of famer

Again, we see people who are extremely biased against rap.

two words: the chronic
Posted by COLT 45 on Sunday, 03.6.11 @ 20:31pm
he's still making those hits 17 years after the chronic dropped. without dre we wouldnt have snoop or eminem or ice cube. think about that.

Dr Dre is a hip hop legend .he has no place in the rock and roll hall of fame
Posted by devd on Monday, 12.12.11 @ 05:07am
Why not? rund dmc, grandmaster flash and beastie bos are in, and overall he's certainly had a bigger influence than grandmaster flash.
Posted by GFW on Monday, 12.12.11 @ 12:18pm
Only if he gets into the hip-hop section. Or as a producer.

List of Hip-Hop Acts that deserve induction

He's already in as a member of N.W.A. he is a lock for solo as well, both for production, and rapping.
