Dre x Cube x Rolling Stone

Dr. Dre is a legend and rightfully so, but his past is certainly not squeaky clean. The mogul has long been plagued with accusations of domestic assault on more than a few women, including former Death Row singer (and ex-wife) Michel’e, as well as television personality Dee Barnes.

Dre has, for the most part, shied away from commenting on the allegations throughout his career, though he and Eminem seemingly made light of one such situation on the 1999 hit, “Guilty Conscious.”

You gonna take advice from somebody who slapped Dee Barnes?
(What you say?) What’s wrong? Didn’t think I’d remember?
(I’ma kill you motherf*cker!) Uhh-ahh, temper, temper!

Covering Rolling Stone alongside Ice Cube this month in promotion of Straight Outta Compton, Dre got more candid about his past then ever:

“I made some f*cking horrible mistakes in my life. I was young, f*cking 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 f*cked up. But I paid for those mistakes, and there’s no way in hell that I will ever make another mistake like that again.”

I’m of the belief that one’s past should never be held over their head if they’ve grown from it and changed their ways, but I also feel that a repeated history of domestic violence is something we can’t ignore. I’m torn on this one. What say you?
