Be it Dr Dre and Eminem, Lil' Wayne and Drake or Jay Z and Kanye West, every artist in the industry started out with a mentor that showed them the way. These are their stories.
Could this be the next Eminem?
First he brought us Snoop Dogg, then Eminem and most recently he nurtured Kendrick Lamar, now Dr Dre has chosen his next Protégé, a 23-year-old guy from Texas called Justin Mohrle.
Justin, who goes by the name JT, has reportedly moved indefinitely to California on Dr Dre's orders, after Dre heard some music that he and The D.O.C had been working on.
"JT and I worked on a couple songs; Dre fell in love with the songs; Dre stole the songs from the kid, because he wanted to put them out as a unit," The D.O.C. told Dallas' D Magazine.
"That's the way this house is rolling. We're all putting our energy toward building another classic for The Good Doctor. Then he's going to take his time to help us build a classic for the youngster."
