‘Words to live by’ : is a daily segment by theSystem * that looks into 7 of the most striking comments and quotes by thought leaders in life or otherwise.
Andre Romelle Young, known professionally as Dr. Dre, is an American rapper, record producer, audio engineer, record executive, and entrepreneur. He is the founder and CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics, and was previously co-owner of Death Row Records.
Here are 7 of Dr. Dre’s most striking quotes :
“Hear what the artists hear, and listen to the music the way they should, the way I do.”
“I’ve gone seventy-nine hours without sleep, creating. When that flow is going, it’s almost like a high. You don’t want it to stop. You don’t want to go to sleep for fear of missing something.”
“Don’t be worried about the next man – make sure your business tight.”
“Clear communication. Respect. A lot of laughter. And a lot of orgasms. That’s what makes a marriage work.”
“People are always coming up to me, thinking I’ve got some magic wand that can make them a star and I want to tell them that no one can do that. Making hit records is not that easy. But it took me time to realize that myself.”
“When I think of the future, I think a lot of Quincy Jones and how he is an inspiration. Look at the quality of his work over so many years. He didn’t even make his best record, ‘Thriller,’ until he was 50. That gives me something to look forward to. Nothing pulls you back into the studio more than the belief that your best record is still ahead.”
“I’m gonna try and change the course of hip hop again.”
