Dr. Dre Has New Music on the Way
"I just got off the phone with him," Paak said. "He's working right now. He's doing a lot of work right now. I can't really speak on it."
It seemed like Anderson .Paak knew he said too much and quickly stopped revealing anymore details about what Dr. Dre has been cooking up. The interview turned to the surreal nature of California singer's friendship with the legendary producer and explaining the well told story of how Dre first heard Paak's music.
While it appears that Dr. Dre has been busy in the studio, there are also rumors that he might be hitting the road for a rare tour. Snoop Dogg reopened the floodgates on that end when he teased a potential tour featuring Dre, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar and himself.
"We’re trying to get it together,” Snoop Dogg said during an interview on DJ Whoo Kid's The Whoolywood Shuffle. “Dre said he want it to be myself, him, Kendrick, Eminem. It’s a wish list that could possibly become a reality if all parties agree to disagree."
Dr. Dre first spoke of a potential European tour featuring that lineup last October.
"One of my dreams right now is to be able to take my ideas and take a show over to Europe,” Dr. Dre said. “I’m 30 years in the game right now and I’ve never been able to take my full production over to Europe. Me and Snoop — we’ve been over there. Me and Eminem have been over there, but it’s just been spot dates and taking a microphone over there with a DJ. I’ve never had the opportunity to take the full production over there, and take my full body of ideas over there and present it to all the people over there in Europe that’s been representing and showing me love throughout my entire 30-year career. This is one of the things that I’ve dreamed about doing. I want to call it Beats and Rhymes."
Fans can only hope that this wish becomes a reality.
