Dr. Dre was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame last week, and some of his closest friends in the music industry, including Snoop Dogg and Eminem, made sure to attend.

The iconic producer, who has had a long career in and out of hip hop, touching on so many aspects of the genre and the music business as a whole, had his very own star embedded into the ground Tuesday in an incredible ceremony attended by celebrities.

In addition to SD and Slim Shady, many other rap heavyweights gathered to pay their respects to the Doc, including Big Boi, Jimmy Iovine, 50 Cent, Kurupt, and many others.

It appears that a few of them even had some good words for Dre. And rightfully so; the man has helped establish the careers of so many veterans in the game, and many of them owe much of their reputation and money to him. Dre has been identifying talent for literally decades. Just a little reminder of some of Dre’s albums over the years, in case you weren’t previously familiar with them. DD has worked on masterpieces like “The Chronic,” “2001,” “The Slim Shady LP,” “California Love,” “Murder Was the Case,” “Doggystyle,” and many others. Dre is also a highly renowned musician, having been nominated for Grammys dozens of times over the years and winning seven of them, as well as a Lifetime Achievement Award from the N.W.A.

TMZ spoke with Dre’s son Curtis Young after the WOF event, and he explained why he thinks his father deserved to be acknowledged, and he makes valid arguments.

Overall, he is regarded as one of the greatest music producers of all time; therefore, it was definitely about time he received his star and flowers. He got both on Tuesday; it’s Dre Day.
