Dr. Dre Joins Legion of Rappers Peddling Alcohol

Drinks America Holdings Ltd. announced it will release a cognac and vodka line with Dr. Dre.

The company behind Trump vodka and Willie Nelson’s Old Whiskey River Bourbon will debut a flavored and unflavored sparkling vodka and a cognac brand in liquor stores to coincide with the release of the rapper/producer’s new album, Detox.

Dr. Dre joins many hip-hop personalities who are filling the coffers of high-end alcohol distributors by peddling alcohol to the black community (Diddy endorses Ciroc Vodka; Jay-Z totes Armand de Brignac’s Ace of Spades Champagne; Busta Rhymes created a catchphrase out of passing the Courvoisier).
