Dr. Dre recently shared that he was almost quit music in 1992, which he revealed in LL’s new book, ‘The Street Wins: 5o Years Of Hip Hop Greatness. Dre whose real name is Andre Young, said in the book, “In 1992, I had just bought a new house. Eazy-E and Jerry Heller were trying to starve me out and refused to pay the money they owed me. I was driving on the 101 freeway headed to the studio and, on that drive, I was thinking about quitting.” He continued, “I had been working on music for The Chronic for at least a month, and everything I was doing either sounded like what I had already done or not as good as what I had already done.” He added, “I started second-guessing my ability and whether music was what I was supposed to be doing, but I pushed those doubts aside and persevered.” Dre continued, “A week later, I started making the best music I had ever made. That moment was crucial to helping me solidify my determination to be a success. It also confirmed that I possessed everything I needed, and all I had to do was stay patient and persistent.” Happy 50th Dre!
