Dr.Dre was always the tallest in NWA so he defo like 6’0
Ice Cube - 5’8
Eazy-E - 5’4
MC Ren - around the same height as Cube
DJ Yella - a bit taller than Ren but shorter than Dre (5’9-5’10).

Dre looks the same height as 50. I used to think Dre was a legit 6 footer but now I’m not so sure. Unless he’s lost height; he is in his 50’s, then Dre’s a 5’11 guy and has always been a 5’11 guy.

People talking about his frame are making me laugh. He was juiced to the gills at one point. I haven't seen him in a while. 182/183cm seems right.
said on 31/Jan/20
Did you see 50cent's walk of fame ceremony ?
Dre looked noticeably shorter than 50 who is 182ish, and that much taller than Eminem..
Looked 5'10.5-5'11 here, but one thing is certain : we have a lift wearer around, it's either 50 who put some to celebrate his day or André who forgot to put his in his shoes.
Definitely didn't look 6' if 50 is 6', let alone 6'1
pic here Click Here
( in favor of 50 but I also saw a video and it was shocking I was like " Wasn't Dre supposed to be 6'1 ? " as soon as I randomly saw it on FB, looks like an inch smaller than yayo too in that pic )
edwards said on 25/Jul/19
I personally have seen him in the 90s and imho rob’s listing is quite accurate .dont know about now but back in the days,he looked a legit 6 foot to me.
said on 10/Jul/19
Barely taller than Jimmy Kimmel. Around 4 inches shorter than Snoop. I don't buy more than 6'0".

Dude has shoulders of a 6"4 man
Bradley said on 2/May/19
Weak six. His claim is a joke.
Arronj98 said on 5/May/18
Dre's well know for wearing Air Force Ones (a new pair everyday apparently) which add around an inch to his height.
Canson said on 13/Feb/18
@Bill: sorry for the late reply. I’ve never seen Dre next to AI but AI was under 5’11”. His own coach even said 5’10.5. If that’s the case then he’s under 6’0” as well but I haven’t seen Dre with him. I’d actually believe Dre is taller than AI if I had to guess.
sumdude said on 26/Dec/17
Peak: 184cm for sure, no doubt.
Today: Probably somewhere inside of [183-183.5cm], considering his age(53).
It would be cool to see 50cent, chris brown, drake & dr dre lined up next to eachother barefoot.
Slim 185 said on 10/Nov/17
186 CM 12 hours sleep easy.
Slim 184 said on 3/Nov/17
The guys got a great pair of... SHOULDERS! I wonder what supplements he takes. More proof that muscle is just as important if not more important than height.
Slim 6' said on 29/Oct/17
Rock solid 184 CM 7 hours into his day.
Needs a 6’0.5” update.
berta said on 24/Oct/17
i think this listing is the best. he is not under 182,5 there is no way and he is no taller than 184,5 so i take the one i the middle. 183,5 is about right
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Oct/17
For years I thought he was closer to Snoops height. His deep voice and frame gave that illusion.
Slim said on 2/Oct/17
t.a said on 25/Sep/17
The D.O.C. should have a page Rob make him one!!
t.a said on 23/Sep/17
@Bill Yeah now that you mention it he did say in one of his songs Portrait of a Masterpiece "Standing a full 6'3". So it's possible
Bill said on 21/Sep/17
The D.O.C. always claimed 6-3 and he always looked pretty close to that in videos with Dre and Snoop. I'd say probably 6-2ish give or take a little these days.
t.a said on 13/Sep/17
How tall do you think the d.o.c. is?
highlysuspect said on 24/Aug/17
He's a big 184. Really large frame
manny said on 27/Jun/17
6 footer no doubt
Canson said on 25/Jun/17
@Christian: I agree. I also agree on snoop strong 6'3/weak 6'4. Dre prob 6' even
Bill said on 23/Jun/17
If you want to talk close up shots, Carson, look up their videos together on YouTube. Specifically look up Dre Day. Snoop consistently has Dre by 5" or more. Dre's wearing a hat and Snoop can clearly see over the top of Dre's head in some shots. The pic you put up a link to looks like it was taken at a lower, closer angle so of course they're going to look closer in height. Look at Dre next to 5-11 Allen Iverson at the 1999 or 2000 (if memory serves) MTV Music Video Awards. Iverson was NEVER 6 feet tall, and Dre is slightly shorter. I'm not buying that Dre is over 6 feet. I stand by my estimate of approximately 5-11 on a good day.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 23/Jun/17
Not to mention the fact that Snoop has a very small head for a guy his height, so his eyelevel is maybe not much over 4" or at best 4.25", which can trick some people into thinking he's taller than he really is. Snoop=6'3.25" or 6'3.5" Dre=6'0"
said on 22/Jun/17
@Bill: it's the same reason people believe Howard stern or Conan are taller than they are. They are both very lanky just like Snoop. I can throw Charles Barkley in as people believing he is taller because angles make him appear bigger and taller because he is "bigger" in the body than most guys comparatively. Snoop is favored with Dre in a lot of those pics not to mention Dre is pudgy and not long limbed. But If you watch close up scenes from the Wash or see pics next to each other their 6'1 and 6'4 claims look right against one another. Maybe it's closer to 4" than 3" but Dre isn't under 6'0" tall Christian has a point. Snoop is a strong 6'3 or weak 6'4 guy
Bill said on 22/Jun/17
You can "highly doubt" it all you want, Christian, go look at pics of Dre and Snoop from '92-'93. If Snoop's between 6-3 and 6-4, there's no way Dre is even 6 feet. Snoop consistently has him by 5", maybe even slightly more.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 25/May/17
I highly doubt Dre's 5'11". And I don't believe he would be the type to wear lifts, as his feet don't look particularly bulky, and he doesn't seem to be insecure about his height at all.
Bill said on 27/Apr/17
To all of you pointing out how he's said 6-1 in Keep Their Heads Ringing, I've said this for years, and I've previously said it on this site. There are at least 2 different versions of Keep Their Heads Ringing. In the very first version that was released to radio stations as a promo single in 1995, there were different lyrics. One line from the original version that was changed was "I use Crest so ain't no Cavity Creeps in my drill." This was changed to "Keeping it real enables me to make another mil" in the later version. Yet ANOTHER line that was changed was Dre's height reference. He originally said "6 FEET, 225 of pure chocolate." It was changed to "6-1, 225 of pure chocolate" in the later recording, which is the one that most people have heard. So not only did Dre directly say he was 6 feet, he actually looks a little south of 6 feet in certain situations (i.e. years ago with Allen Iverson, Denzel Washington, etc.). Look at him in old videos and interviews with Snoop when Snoop first came out around '92. Snoop easily looks more than 4" taller. I don't believe Dre's more than 5-11 barefoot these days. Possibly a little less, and likely a lift wearer.

He's 6' not 6'1

rob how does this happen, he lost weight and a few inches Click Here
Editor Rob: the other bloke ain't that old...but may well have lost an inch
berta said on 19/Jan/17
i remmeber 10 years ago when i reasd that he was 185. that always sounded to mutch . almost 184 sound good
Importer said on 29/Dec/16
He has a muscular torso, that helps to make you look bigger and taller in person.
joe joe said on 27/Dec/16
@MrTBlack Dre says he's 6'1 in keep their head ringing. I also think he is a lift wearer
said on 19/Oct/16
He looks really big for a 183-84 cm guy.
He has one of the biggest frames I've seen for a 6ft range guy. If this guy has speed, he could have played college football.
NX said on 14/Aug/16
Looks 5'10 in the picture
(s)ain't said on 4/Feb/16
In keep they heads ringing he says he's 6foot 225. Big boy for sure
John said on 3/Feb/16
Dr Dre 183 cm
Warren G 188-189 cm
Nate Dogg 179 cm
Snoop Dogg 192-193 cm
MrTBlack said on 25/Dec/15
I've seen him next to in enough movies to see that he is about 4" shorter than him so this listing sounds more accurate than 6'1".
bonerstix said on 9/Nov/15
And Dr.dre is 6'1,ice cube 5'8,Dj yella 5'9-5'11, and mc ren is somewhere from 5'7-5'10

Yall are ****ing lying, easy e is 5"5 they mesured him before he died
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/15
No way under 6ft.
Matt the great said on 6/Sep/15
hmmm thought he was a fairly big guy maybe more of a 6ft flat guy though
said on 30/Aug/15
according to these stats he's 6'2'' max...'cause I really doubt nfl downgrades players measurements, if anything, they inflate them a bit...
said on 16/Aug/15
Hi Rob, can you tell how tall Suge Knight could be? He's listed 6'2'' on most places but you can see 6'4'' listing here and there...
[Editor Rob: Dave, you can rule out 6ft 4 because Suge himself said he was 6ft 3. He could be 6ft 2 or 3.]
Icey said on 10/Aug/15
Ahh thought he was taller.
Symbolic said on 21/Jul/15
"I'm 6'1, 225"
Keep Their Head's Ringin' lyrics.
MrTBlack said on 28/May/15
I'm surprised he got away with 6'1". I think 6'0" is it and maybe 6'0.5" if lucky.
Amaze said on 5/Apr/15
@g0d he is slouching the first picture
second picture is biased
dr dre is tall and no less than 6
why does he look 3.5/4 inches shorter than Snoop Dogg in still dre then, I've seen that tune so many times and if he was 5'10 I woulda noticed the towering, dr dre is a 6 ft.25 male at 184cm
said on 2/Apr/15
There is nothing dodgy about the photo.
They're in the same line,Tupac is not in front of Dre.
They're wearing roughly the same shoes,regarding the height boost they give.
Dre's shoulders are just above Tupac's.
He is taller,but not 9 cm taller.
Is this pic dodgy too?
Amaze said on 30/Mar/15
@g0d very poor judgement in height you have. that's a dodgy photo. hes not 5'10 lol that's extremely funny. look at that photo and tell me what the problem is with it. he's no less than 6'0.25/184. he's 184cm
said on 27/Mar/15
There is no way he is 184 cm.
He is just slightly taller than Tupac,who's 175 cm tall.
Dr Dre is legit 5'10" or 178 cm tall.
said on 19/Feb/15
i can't believe he is still listed 6'1. this is probably the worst listing in this site.
[Editor Rob: I give him nearer the 6ft mark now.]
Dr eazy said on 16/Feb/15
Dr Dre is 6'1.5 and weighs 209
Brad said on 11/Feb/15
Just over 50's 6 flat, weak 6 foot 1.
MrTBlack said on 5/Nov/14
Snoop always looks 4" taller than him in enough movies. 6'0" even.
Zahi said on 17/Sep/14
He seems to edge out his wife who wears big high heels. In one pic he edges her out in barely thick dress shoes. 6'1 max.
baxter said on 15/Aug/14
How tall is DJ Yella? Because theres this one photo im thinking of where he looks easily half a foot taller than Dre and over a foot taller than Eazy but in other photos he looks around MC Ren's height so I haven't a clue how tall he is.
Joe said on 3/Aug/14
There is not much evidence regarding his height. He can looks anywhere between 6 feet and 6'1"
Jeff said on 23/Mar/14
@dj3: MC Ren is probably around 5'6 or 5'7.
Dj3 said on 9/Mar/14
How tall is MC Ren
Flash said on 13/Feb/14
It's interesting, because in "Keep their Heads Ringing" I've heard a different couple version, especially with the line, 'I'm 6'1, 225, of pure chocolate' and in another version he goes 'I'm 6 feet, 225, of pure chocolate' so maybe he's around that height? Definitely looks about that in the Dre Day video with Snoop.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Dec/13
"Dr. Dre height: 6ft 0.5in (184cm)"
A bit under his claim, Rob?
said on 30/Oct/13
I don't believe he's even close to 6'1". Have a look at this video Click Here
Eminem is a legit 5'7" (he was measured 5'8" on his mugshot, but he was wearing shoes that were at least an inch). In this video Dre doesn't look much taller than him and I'm 5'7 myself and my uncle is 6'1 or 6'2 and he looks WAAAY taller than me.
Dre said on 17/Nov/12
i really think dre is but 6 ft 1/2 or 3/4 in afternoon and 6ft 1 when he comes out of bed. Besides if you look at this guy next to any other guy such as ice cube, mc ren or 50 cent he is clearly taller
matt678 said on 13/Nov/12
looks close to 6ft1 mabye 6ft0.75
Mathew said on 29/Sep/12
I don't see over 184 cm to be honest.

Dr dre is a strong 6'1 stop smoke guys. next to jay-z listed at 6'2 : Click Here
runt said on 22/Oct/11
anybody saying LOL to 6' for 50 cent is laughing at Rob who has him listed at 6'

He's 6ft0 (1.83 m).

Brad says on 30/Aug/11
6'1 is right.
somsone said on 8/Jul/11
Ναη 1.84 is not that tall, i am 1.84 and i am 17 so i wont gain height ,they say that we stop at the age of 17 to 18 and nowndays the kids from 1994 and 1995 are tall by the common standars but normlal for their generation.idk maybe i am wrong
jtm said on 6/Jul/11
he is only 46 and if he was ever 6'1.5 then denzel washington is 6'3. dre was also clearly shorter than tom arnold and he had a footwear advantage.
JD183 said on 5/Jul/11
big dude, the man's 6'1 at least, maybe 6'1.5 in his prime
jtm said on 21/Jun/11
viper how tall do you think dr.dre is?
Duhon said on 21/Jun/11
Viper, you must have some personal height issues of you're own. All i see of your comments are you trying to downgrade every celeb listed here and belittling those who disagree with you.
Viper said on 20/Jun/11
50 Cent is only 6'0 If you are blind. That man is 5-10 and maybe some change.
Sorry to hurt your feelings anonymous.
spike said on 19/Jun/11
Snoop is about 6'3. I'm 6'1 and I was Security for him at a concert last August. He's a tall dude!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/May/11
6ft0.5(184cm) tops...doesn't look 6ft1

50 cent aint 6-0, LOL
Rob said on 13/Apr/11
Dr. Dre: 6'0
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Mar/11
6ft0.5/184cm could be neared the mark
said on 9/Mar/11
He's definitely 6'1. Here's a picture of him standing next to 6'0" 50 cent and he's at least a half inch taller. Click Here
Google says he's 185 cm (about 6'0.75"), so I'd estimate around 6'0.5-6'0.75" range, which suffice it to say is 6'1".
Dmitriy K said on 6/Mar/11
Does the height of Eminem and Dr. Dre matter; they're good rappers and excellent producers of hip-hop,dance, etc. music. I'm very close to 5'8" in the morning and go down to 5'7" at night; the fact that I shrink 1 inch doesn't give me nightmares at night. Celebrities are real people like the rest of us, show a little respect and don't judge a person by his/her height.
Cam said on 2/Mar/11
he is 6'1... listen to the song "keep there heads ringing". he says his weight and hight.
jake said on 18/Feb/11
No way is he 6' 1", he looks far shorter than 6'3.5 Snoop Dogg and doesn't look this tall at all in Training Day. I think he's 6' or even a weak 6' (181-182 cm).
Mathew said on 26/Jan/11
Estimation: Eminem is 5'7.5" and Dre is 6'0" - 6'0.25".
dave said on 14/Jan/11
how can you differentiate half an inch by the way someone looks comparatively in photos and videos?! shat aaaaap.
Mattiew_- said on 17/Dec/10
I think he is 6'0 , 6'1 is too much , especially if you consider that Snoop Dogg is 6'3.5 ( He always look 6'4 to me but has bad posture )
Snoop is 4 inches taller so doing the math is a 6 foot Dr Dre (0.5 to 1 inch taller than 50 cent )
anonymous said on 11/Nov/10
dre is no more than 6'0". hes a solid 4 inches shorter than 6'4" snoop dogg and 6'2" suge knight had 2 inches on dre.
LG69 said on 10/Nov/10
Solid 6' barefooted
theenforcer22 said on 10/Nov/10
Watch the film 'Training Day' he doesn't look anywhere near 6 ft 1. It may just be the camera angle but he looks about 5 ft 10.
TELLEM said on 2/Jun/09
denzel had huge boots in that film though
josh said on 1/Jun/09
wasnt denzel washington taller than him in training day?
LG69 said on 24/Apr/09
I've always thought Dre was 5'11" at most. Next to 5'8" Cube he looked 3" taller.

Clay they must have shoes on cause the guy on the left is 6"4 and the guy on the right is 6"1
50 cent must have no shoes on and he is leaning

I cant get over how short 50 cent looks in that photo.
Bob said on 21/Oct/08
he was quoted in the source as 6foot not 6'1"
Hugh said on 29/Sep/08
I think he's more 184-185cm. Not quite 6ft1.
Viper said on 17/Sep/08
Yeah, there is a pic of dre where he looks shorter than Warren G who is around 6-1 himself.
TELLEM said on 15/Sep/08

everyone on earth knows that eazy was short.below 5-6 that is.

andre,eazy-e wasnt 5'10! most places list him at 5'5,and he quite shorter than ice cube,who's about 5'8.
just for sakes,eazy-e even has a song called 'n***az my height dont fight'. a 5'10 guy wouldn't make this song.

Andre, eazy-e was 5'10''
Vilian310 said on 22/Mar/08
Dre's 6'1. I met him along time ago. I met him a second time when he was wit the Game and Game is a good 6'4.5 cause hes tall. Dre is a few shorter.
George said on 16/Feb/08
ive seen him next to will smith who's like 6'2" and dr dre looked about 5'9" to me!
Mad said on 29/Nov/07
everybody is making a big deal out of dre being 6' or 6'1". It's not a big deal. Lets suppose he is 6'1 when he wakes up, by the end of the day he is about 6'. So lets just average it to 6'.5". It is not that big of a deal.
Andre said on 28/Oct/07
Eazy E wasnt 5'6, he more looked like 5'4. in a NWA photo Eazy looked at least 3 inches shorter than Ice Cube maybe even 4 inches,
Viper said on 11/Oct/07
Snoop even looks a little taller than Game.
Deondre said on 11/Oct/07
No Viper,Game is taller than that, I can show u some pics to prove it......
Viper said on 28/Aug/07
Game is is 6-3 at best.
Dre said on 27/Aug/07
Dre a good 6'1 because i saw him in pics with Game who is atleast 6'5 and dre looked a good 3-4 inches shorter.
Biggith said on 17/Aug/07
Dr Dre is without a doubt 6'1",it's funny how the height 6'1" seems to be everyones fantasy height.I see alot of guys claiming 6'1" but only 5'11" wich is not short so if you want to round off height just say 6'0" don't jump to 6'0".A legit 6'1" would be Dre he looks it physically wich is tall but not very tall,and he doesn't tower over peers like he once did during the N.W.A dayz,alot of rappers today seem to be 5'10" through 6'0".
glenn said on 15/Aug/07
ice cube is 5-8.
Dennis said on 15/Aug/07
Dr.Dre is Definitly 6'1",only three inches shorter than the 6'4" Snoop Dogg and was the tallest member in N.W.A. For the record Eazy 5'5",Ren 5'9",Cube 5'10",Yella 5'10" and the D.O.C 6'3".
said on 28/Jun/07
Brad, I'm 5'4 too and just because your small does not mean that you can't defend yourself.You know you people underestimate us guys way to much, I mean it's like if I accomplish one small task people get all amazed and **** like "wow he can actually do stuff" it's really quit ****ing halarious.You people seriously need your heads checked,think about it, if a tall guy is standing behind you ready to jump you then you can see his shadow.Now if a short guy sneeks up behind you or even right in front of you you prolly wont even notice them till they headbunt you in the balls!
B-baller said on 22/Jun/07
Warren G is not 6'3, but yes he is taller than Dre, he is about 6'1 1/2 because he is taller than Dre but still 2 inches smaller than snoop dogg
Jay said on 21/Jun/07
was anyone else suprised to see Warren G is 6'3" on celebrity fit club? I thought he was surely smaller than Dre
Bill said on 12/Jun/07
Dre does in fact say "6 feet and 225 of pure chocolate" on an alternate promo single version of "Keep Their Heads Ringing" that was released to radio BEFORE the "Friday" soundtrack was released to the streets back in 1995. I still have several DJ copies of this CD single, as a matter of fact. On the official "Friday" soundtrack, though, the height line was changed to "6-1" among a few other lines that had slight changes throughout the song. I've seen Dre stand next to 5-11 Allen Iverson and I can see him scraping 6 feet MAYBE, but not 6-1.
Brad said on 21/Apr/07
What decade will his new one drop?
Harry said on 23/Jan/07
I swear Dre spits on a record that he's 6ft
dmeyer said on 28/Dec/06
he is one of the only rapper that dosnt look too short near snoop so 6'1 no less
Matt said on 27/Dec/06
Ball-a-hallic, you're referring to Suge Knight. Knight is 6'4. I guess Dre's height is accurate, he looks about 6'1 or 6'2 in the "Ain't nothing but a G thang" video, a little shorter then Snoop, but still is noticably tall.
Pinky Da Gangsta said on 1/Dec/06
Yeah answerin sum guy down da bottom Eazy E is 5'5", MC ren is 5'7 1/2", Ice Cube is 5'7"... as for DJ Yella I fink he bout da same as Dr Dre maybe taller
Brad said on 7/Nov/06
I saw N.W.A. back in the day in Denver. Dre was about 6' 1". Eazy was an itty bitty fella. He talked the talk but I'm sure he got a jumbo can of whuppin' from anybody cuz he was so small. Dre's put on a belly nowadays. Jerry Heller's book needs an N.W.A. answer book, they got creamed for a few million.
Anonymous said on 14/Aug/06
Dre is definitely about 6-1. Looks about 3 inches taller than the 5-8 Eminem, just an inch taller than the 6-0 50 Cent, and a couple of inches shorter than the 2 tall towers, Snoop and The Game. He hunches over sometimes though, which makes him look shorter.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 28/Jul/06
Yea i'll admit he mite just be 6'0 but in the movie the Wash with Snoop dogg, Dre gets towered by the man who plays their boss(i forget his name) but i heard he is between 6'2 and 6'4, he almost looked as tall as Snoop so if he is then both mite be 6'3. but anyways this dude made Dre look more 5'11
Ujane, Moscow said on 21/Apr/06

Dre cant be shorter than six foot. Ice cube comes up to his eye level and he's witout a doubt 5'8". From eye level to top of head is 4.5 to 5 inches putting dre at 6'0.5" to 6'1". Dre doesnt have a big head so id say hes 6'0.5". Denzel was an inch taller than dre in that movie but i think that Denz is 6'1" and his shoes probably had a half inch extra on the sole than dre's. Plus Dre is definitely an inch taller than 50 cent who I think is just close to 6 foot. Dre probably rounded his 6'0.5" height to 6'1. Who cares about a half inch, that only like a centimeter and a half

I know his height and he did say his height in 2 of his songs in "Keep Their Heads Ringin" he said "I'm 6 foot 225 a pure chocolate" and in 1987 House Calls he said: "Now my name is Dre 6 feet tall with weavy hair". He isn't 6 foot 1 he is exactly 6 foot.
he sings: "I'm 6 1, 225 of pure chocolate"...on heads ringing.

I've been debating this one for years. I would say he's around 5-11 at most. I remember an awards show from a few years back where he was a presenter with Allen Iverson, and Iverson was a shade taller. Everyone knows Iverson is a little smaller than 6 feet, so I don't see Dre as being 6-1, or even a full 6 feet.
But here's another little known interesting tidbit to consider. As pointed out previously, in the song "Keep Their Heads Ringing" which is on the 1995 "Friday" soundtrack, Dre does in fact say "6-1 and 225." HOWEVER, when this song was originally released to DJ's and radio as a single a few months before the movie and soundtrack were released, there was an alternate version with slightly different lyrics. Some might remember that one peculiar line in the original version, which was changed in the soundtrack version, said this: "I use Crest so ain't no cavity creeps in my drill." AND there was another line that was changed as well - the one mentioning Dre's height. The original lyric actually stated "I'm 6 feet and 225 of pure chocolate." Did he really grow an inch overnight, at the then age of 30? Nah, I'd say rounding up, aren't we Dre?

Eazy E claimed he 5'6", but next to Cube (5'8") you could see he more like 5'4". I've seeing MC Ren's height placed at 5'8 1/2". If you see pictures of him next to Cube they can verify this, they look nearly spot on.

Denzel washington is 6"0 and in the movie training day with him and Dre, you can see washington is taller. Most stars exaggerate their own heights, so why not just get all of them lined up for an annual measuring day hahaha

I thought in a song, while rapping, he also referred to himself as 6'1".

I always wondered that 2 but I didnt kno wat Ren or Yella's heights wer I figured Eazy was like 5'6 and (BACK THEN) I thought Cube was 5'10 or 5'11 n Dre I thought he was like 6'3

Hmm ... Dre was the tallest, by far. Eazy was said to be in the 5'3"- 5'5" range. Ice Cube in the 5'7"- 5'8"; Ren more in the 5'10" zone and Yella maybe just a little shorter than Dre.

I believe Dre's 6'1 cause I've seen pics of him wit Game on The Game's site and in a few magazines and Game's 6'4 for sure and Dre looks about 3 inches smaller.
