Dr. Dre Shocked When Axl Rose Wore N.w.a. Hat
Veteran rapper DR. DRE realised his former band N.W.A. had made it big when he saw rocker AXL ROSE wearing a hat with the group's logo on it in a GUNS N' ROSES music video.
Dre couldn't believe it when he first saw Guns N' Roses 1991 promo for hit song You Could Be Mine - because he and his bandmates were still struggling to make a living and had no idea their music had a white audience.
Dre says, "The biggest shock was when we saw Axl Rose in the video with the N.W.A. hat.
"We were like, 'What the f**k?' We were still selling records out of our car."
