More than any other rapper, Dr. Dre was responsible for moving away from the avant-noise and political stance of Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions as well as the party vibes of old-school rap. Instead, Dre pioneered gangsta rap and his own variation of the sound, G-funk. Born Andre Romelle Young February 18, 1965, in Compton, California. Dr. Dre is married Nicole Threatt since 1996.

Not yet the Hip Hop's First Billionaire, but he is one of the closest by far.
