Dr. Dre Ignored Race Card W/ Eminem, "I Didn't Even Know He Was White"

Renowned producer Dr. Dre opens up about his relationship with Eminem and ignoring the race card when signing the Grammy-winning rapper to Aftermath Records over a decade ago in the new issue of XXL.

Within his feature, the "Doc" admits risk-taking has always been a part of his resume.

"Yeah, throughout my career, I've always tried to take certain risks," Dre explained. "Even at the beginning, with 'F*ck Tha Police.' I've always tried to take certain risks, and as far as Em goes, I always felt like nobody can deny it's good. I feel like, if I hadn't met Em or we hadn't linked up, he would eventually have become a success anyway. Because he's so talented. I was just fortunate enough to meet him first and open the door for him. As far as the race thing goes, when I heard Em for the first time, I didn't even know he was White. I just knew I wanted to work with him. And that kind of actually made it better for me, because it was so different. As a creator and innovator, nothing can beat that, and that's all I was looking at. It was a new and creative thing that sounds different and looks different, and we got along. We had fun making those records in the early days, and still. We still have the same energy today that we had the first day we went in the studio. And we still have that level of passion for it." (

Dre gets the genius tag...he revolutionized Hip-hop's sound out west and was apart of groundbreaking groups and albums....

Eminem has always been mad gimmicky to me...his angst and backstory is made to appeal to suburban teens and early on his rhyme style was a carbon copy of Masta Ace's....

He has a couple of really applaudable albums, but so do gobs of black emcees that have been around longer than him...and they DON'T get the genius tag, ever...

i hate to follow the boxden antics and turn every topic into homophobic experience, but i always thought the relationship between em and dre seem little more than just work-related

if anything i blame boxden for putting that thought into my head!

You do know Eminem was about to get dropped from Interscope because they were worried SSLP was too controversial, right? His backstory isn't made up. Turns out people could relate and they ran with it. And point out all these genius emcees who no one ever says is genius that are better than Eminem.
