One World Books will publish a book titled ROLLIN WITH DRE: The Unauthorized Account: An Insider’s Tale of the Rise, Fall, and Rebirth of West Coast Hip Hop that is expected to shock and give a never-before-seen version of the life and times of legendary producer Dr. Dre.
ROLLIN WITH DRE will be a tell-all story that covers Dre‘s early days as a member of N.W.A., joining and escaping Death Row Records, building and helping launch the careers of artists including Eminem, 50 Cent, and Game among other key events in the producer’s life.
The book will be by Bruce Williams, long-time friend and former right-hand man to Dre, with Donnell Alexander. As one of the closest people to observe the renowned producer, Williams promises to not withhold anything.
“I’m about to blow the top off of everything I saw,” Williams has said.
During his time alongside Dre, Williams was considered his confidant and problem-solver to a number of artists and others earning him the nickname “Uncle Bruce.” He is expected to have either been at a specific location when action went down or at least close enough to hear the hollow points fly by.
In addition to the key events in Dre‘s life, the book will also discuss the driving forces of sex, violence and power in the hip hop industry with an emphasis on the west coast scene. It will also give an inside look at what was behind the 50 Cent and Game reconciliation press conference and the planned release of the long awaited forthcoming album, Detox.
