The discography of Dr. Dre, an American record producer and rapper, consists of two studio albums, 14 singles, and 6 compilation albums.

Dr. Dre began his rap career in the World Class Wreckin' Cru in the mid-1980s and performed with the group N.W.A from 1987 to 1991. In 1992, Dr. Dre launched his solo career with the collaborative single with Snoop Dogg "Deep Cover" and the album The Chronic under Death Row Records.[1] The Chronic was certified triple platinum in the United States.[2] Its singles "Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang" and "Fuck wit Dre Day (and Everybody's Celebratin')" both made the top ten spots of the American Billboard Hot 100 chart; "Let Me Ride" reached #3 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart.[3] Dr. Dre also began his career as a music producer, with his first productions including Snoop Dogg's 1993 debut album Doggystyle and the soundtrack to the film Above the Rim. He performed in guest spots for other artists in Ice Cube's "Natural Born Killaz" and Tupac Shakur's "California Love". Dr. Dre's 1995 single "Keep Their Heads Ringin'" was another top ten hit and was featured in the soundtrack to the film Friday. In 1996, Dr. Dre left Death Row to form his own record label Aftermath Entertainment and released a compilation Dr. Dre Presents the Aftermath with his single "Been There, Done That" and other tracks from artists newly signed to Aftermath.[1]

In 1999, Dr. Dre released his second studio album 2001. This album went six times platinum in the US[2] and five times platinum in Canada (500,000 units). Singles "Forgot About Dre" and "The Next Episode" reached the top ten spots of the Hot Rap Tracks chart.[3] As the founder and CEO of Aftermath Entertainment, Dr. Dre focused on producing for other artists during the 2000s and appeared on singles by Eminem, including "Encore" in 2004 and "Crack a Bottle" in 2009. Dr. Dre began recording Detox in 2003,[4] and is intended to be his final album.[5] As of February 24, 2011, two singles "Kush" (featuring Snoop Dogg and Akon) and "I Need a Doctor" (featuring Eminem and Skylar Grey) have been released along with music videos for each. In September 2014, Aftermath producer Dawaun Parker revealed that Dr. Dre is working on a new album, but it will not be titled Detox and he had scrapped that title many years ago.[6]
