Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
I’ve been a huge fan of Dr Dre and his music for a long time. Whether as an artist (The Chronic) or as a producer (see Eminem and MANY others) I’ve held him and his talent in high regard. His partnership with Jimmy Iovine is at the heart of this HBO documentary which looks at their rise across the 80’s/90’s and eventually to the largest purchase of a company that Apple has ever made. It’s fascinating stuff – from the those they have produced to the trials and tribulations, Rap wars and signings, falling outs and controversy that have happened along the way. It’s essential viewing for anyone with even a passing interest into the history of modern music.
