Dr Dre Back in the Studio and Eminem Album Almost Done
Some of us older Hip Hop fans remember Dr Dre before he was just a brand of headphones. Yes he used to produce music and make his own stuff. So all you kids out there with your Beats headphones on, make sure you get out there and listen to some, because Dr Dre is one of the Hop Hop Godfathers. Anyway, you may soon have chance to get some new stuff from Dre.
Dr. Dre’s empire continues to grow, but he hasn’t forgotten about his first love, music. The hip-hop tycoon is back in the lab.
After putting ‘Detox’ on hold, Dre has returned to the music scene. “I’ve just gotten inspired to go back in the studio, so I’m really just having fun with life and having fun being creative and just trying some new and different things with myself,” he said during a phone call with Big Boy’s Neighborhood on Power 106.
While he’s been pre-occupied with other ventures, music will always remain his passion. “As you know, it’s been almost 30 years for me in music, so it’s a little bit difficult to keep getting inspired to get back in there. But music is my first love and I’m gonna continue to do that as long as I can.”
He also revealed that Eminem’s album is nearing completion. “Em is finishing up his project,” said Dre.
In a previous interview with Billboard, Eminem’s manager Paul Rosenberg said that “Em’s first solo project in three years is due post-Memorial Day”.
Its not all new music though, Dre has been busy working on a Beats music subscription service, which is set to launch at the end of the year.
As Dre seems to have rediscovered his thirst and not for 50 Cents water, any bets on Rakim releasing an album?
