Dr. Dre will release a biography in 07. According to AllHipHop.com:

“The book also examines the viewpoints of insiders around Dr. Dre while
chronicling many of the luminaries he introduced to pop culture, including
Eminem, 50 Cent, and the Game. “I’d say the entire book [is controversial].
Instead of a Have Gun Will Travel retread, I started from scratch, approached
this with fresh eyes, and crammed about two books’ worth of material into one,”
he said. “You can’t please all of the people all of the time, so certain
sections might infuriate some readers, particularly things about Eminem, the Game and Tupac; the NWA reunion attempt; the issue of who
does what and what actually constitutes being a producer in this genre; and
more…I mean, the list goes on.”
