It’s crazy how Dr. Dre is achieving so much success and hasn’t released an album in over 10 years. The “Forgot About Dre” rapper is going to be honored by ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) during an upcoming event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on June 25th. ASCAP President & Chairman Paul Williams had this to say about Dr. Dre’s most recent accomplishment:

“Dre is one of the most important voices in modern music, He created a unique, recognizable sound that dominated rap music in the early 1990s, and has played a major role in developing and launching the careers of some of the biggest names in the business. He continues to inspire artists and producers across all genres with his musical techniques, and we are very proud to honor him with ASCAP’s Founders Award.”

This is great news for Dr. Dre and his camp. 2010 is slated to be a big year for the hit maker with his highly anticipated 3rd studio album Detox scheduled to be released later this year!
