With every accolade that comes Dr. Dre’s way, it’s always clouded by the abuse allegations that have followed him the majority of his career. The ever-elsuive mega-producer has never really spoken on the stories — that is until now.
Dre sat down with Rolling Stone to discuss his new film Straight Outta Compton, but the conversation also touched on his ugly history with violence against women. When asked about the 1991 incident when he assaulted TV host Dee Barnes, as well as recent charges of physical abuse by his Nineties girlfriend Michel’le, the “Chronic” rapper revealed, “Those are some of the things that I would like to take back. It was really f*cked up.”
“I made some fucking horrible mistakes in my life,” says Dre. “I was young, fucking stupid. I would say all the allegations aren’t true – some of them are. Those are some of the things that I would like to take back. It was really fucked up. But I paid for those mistakes, and there’s no way in hell that I will ever make another mistake like that again.”
Ice Cube, who was with his former N.W.A group member during the interview, also opened up about the group’s “lyrical treatment of women.”
“If you’re a b*tch, you’re probably not going to like us,” he says. “If you’re a ho, you probably don’t like us. If you’re not a ho or a b*tch, don’t be jumping to the defense of these despicable females. Just like I shouldn’t be jumping to the defense of no punks or no cowards or no slimy son of a b*tches that’s men. I never understood why an upstanding lady would even think we’re talking about her.”
