"maybe" he wouldn't? let's put it this way. without dre, eminem was a popular underground artist. with dre, eminem is a mega-star. if you have any commercial potential and you hook up with dre, dre WILL blow you up. the formula is talent + violent/misogynist lyrics + dre = success. ask snoop. he took the dre out of the equation for his second album and his sales dropped by half.

I feel confident in saying that Dre made Eminem a star, because Eminem's pre-Dre records were just as good and didn't sell 1/100th as much.
