Dr. Dre was awarded for his groundbreaking work in the music business as an artist and a mentor in the careers of [lastfm]Eminem[/lastfm], [lastfm]2Pac[/lastfm], [lastfm]Snoop Dogg[/lastfm], and [lastfm]50 Cent[/lastfm].

He fought back tears during his acceptance speech while reflecting upon his career. “I’m living an incredible life,” Dr. Dre said. “Making a living doing what I love and having people love it. I can’t even explain what that feels like.”

He also paid tribute to his mother, who became pregnant with him at 15. “She was always told by family, friends and neighbors or whatever, she was going to ruin her life and mine,” Dr. Dre said.

Singer Ne-Yo was also recognized at the ceremony as Songwriter of the Year.
