• Dr Dre Death Row
    1,011 words
    More than any other rapper, Dr. Dre was responsible for moving away from the avant-noise and political stance of Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions, as well as the party vibes of old school rap.

A. celebrated the hedonistic, a moralistic side of gang life. Dre was never much of a rapper -- his rhymes were si...

Opponents to the death penalty say that death is actually revenge rather than justice. The number of prisoners on death row is increasing. The public favoring the death penalty is reachi...
