You’ve never seen Dr. Dre like this before — no really, you haven’t, trust us.

Certain moments in history embed themselves in our brains, like falling in love; landing that first big job; securing a Playstation 5 before a scalper; and of course, doodling around on Microsoft Paint until your desktop freezes.

Trust us when we say you’re going to want to see these...
