DOES DR. DRE OWN AFTERMATH OR NOT?

DOES DR. DRE OWN AFTERMATH OR NOT?



I am hearing a crazy rumor that Dr. Dre doesn’t really own Aftermath Records. I’m not saying this is true, but I am hearing it. From what I understand, Dre owed Jimmy Iovine a great, great debt in the “aftermath” of Death Row Records. It was either from the loss of Death Row or the early flopping of Aftermath Records. Nevertheless, I heard Dre owed Jimmy a lot and Dre forked over Aftermath or a huge stake in it as payment. I heard Jimmy also reportedly owns Beats By Dre, the Monster-backed headsets. Obviously, Dre is getting paid, but we’re seeing no KINDA Detox. Man,I give up.

    I think Jimmy Iovine owns it in the sense that he has the final say in anything released on Interscope. Aftermath is a really just boutique label, a branch of Interscope. It is an outlet for everything Dre touches as a producer. Remember the drama between Jimmy Iovine and Busta Rhymes, when Jimmy Iovine blocked the release of B.O.M.B.? It was supposed to come out on Aftermath. There were a lot of projects that Dre worked on that never saw the light of day. Famous artists have had their albums shelved due to intervention from Iovine.

    Yeah I remember reading about Dre selling a stake of Aftermath to Interscope for $63m back in like 98-99 it was after the success of Eminems first album because if you remember aftermath didn’t have any other successful artist before that time
