Last night Dr. Dre was honored with Global Impact Award at BMCHonors by the recording academy, Grammys.
The night’s liveliest performance was by Snoop Dogg, Kurupt and Ty Dolla $ign, who all honored Dr. Dre. The trio performed “Ain’t No Fun (If the Homies Can’t Have None),” song which is produced by Dre.
During his acceptance speech, Dre said: “My musical journey started with me wanting to find something that I could be good at simply so I could earn enough money to buy a decent pair of shoes just to be able to wear to school. I was in junior high school the first time I had ever heard hip-hop for the first time. I heard mixing and scratching, and I couldn’t get enough of that sound. And once I got my hands on the turntables, I knew I had found my wings and I was determined to learn how to fly.”
Then he continued: “I fell in love with the idea of manipulating sound and taking those different sounds and putting them together like a puzzle to make a song. I studied engineering for years and years and years, and from there I realized that I could take or hear a snippet of a sound and use that to create something entirely new. And then boom — I became a producer.”
Grammy shared the news on Twitter with the caption: “Dr. Dre accepts the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award at #BMCHonors.
