Eminem Honors Dr. Dre With ASCAP Founders Award

Dr. Dre and Eminem celebrate ASCAP Award

Dr. Dre and Eminem were on hand for the the 23rd Annual ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards on Friday (June 25) at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Dre was honored by his protege at the event, presenting the N.W.A. rapper and producer with the Founders Award for his contributions to music.

“It would have been a lot easier for Dre to dismiss me like most people did,” Eminem said before giving Dre the award. “But he didn’t. He stepped up to the challenge because he saw something in me. He changed the face of music and he changed my life.” Humbly accepting the award, Dre told the audience, “I’m living an incredible life. Making a living doing what I love and having people love it. I can’t even explain what that feels like.”
