Ronin Ro, Dr. Dre: The Biography (2007)

Ro's biography provides the background on Dr. Dre's ascent to becoming the biggest rap producer of all time, from his days with the World Class Wreckin' Cru to N.W.A. to Death Row Records and his discovery of Eminem. This is a great book for someone looking at a basic history of 1990s West Coast rap music and Dre's beginnings, as Ro culls most of his information from a large pool of news articles and magazine interviews with Dre and his former Ruthless and Death Row co-artists.
