Dr. Dre has an ear for talent. He went from discovering Eminem to 50 cent. This multi-millionaire has produced for many artist and created the billion dollar brand Beats by Dre.
He is now working closely with a 23-year-old white rapper and songwriter from Dallas named Justin Mohrle. His name back then was Love, JT. Who is Justin, and what does Dre see/hear in him?
Mohrle is said to be the next big thing. Word on the street is that he even worked with Gwen Stefani. He did have a mixtape that came out in 2012 called 21: Live Forever, which will (maybe) give heads a chance to hear what Dre heard.
The D.O.C, a former Death Row Records artist introduced Mohrle to Dre. Justin called D.O.C. a create friend and mentor. He signed a 360-degree deal with D.O.C’s company called Silverback.
Justin Mohrle seems to have a following and great people behind him. I’m hoping we see a lot more of him this year, so we can see why Dr. Dre picked him to be his next protégé – because let’s face it, the man has a great track record of picking protégés. He brought Snoop, Eminem (and others) into the game, so we have to just trust that he knows what he’s doing.
Whether Justin makes a splash or just becomes an Aftermath roster name remains to be seen. Stay tuned.
