Philly Freezer also ran down his wish list of collaborations. Though he’s a seasoned emcee, he says that he hasn’t had a chance to link with Dr. Dre and Eminem, and that he would love to work with Kendrick Lamar and Nas.

“I want to work with Dre. I’ve been in the game for a minute, I haven’t gotten a chance to work with Dre. Definitely want to do with Dre and Em. Up-and-coming people, I want to do something with Kendrick Lamar. He’s an artist who challenged the game and came with something different."

Dre To Produce Horror Movie 'Thaw'

Dr. Dre knows beats and he's one of the best at verbally eviscerating his enemies. But now the reclusive rap icon and music mogul is getting ready to enter a whole new arena of battle: the slasher movie.
According to Variety, Dre is set to co-produce the horror thriller "Thaw" for the Crucial Films movie banner. The script for the film will be written by Vik Weet, with a story focusing on an "ancient evil that emerges from the rapidly melting ice in the Yukon."

Variety noted that Weet curiously has also written another script for an as-yet-untitled thriller, to be directed by action veteran Renny Harlin about the investigation into the 1959 Dyatlov Pass incident, where nine experienced hikers were found dead in Russia's Ural Mountains.

Dre is no stranger to the movie business, with a résumé that includes acting appearances in the 1996 heist flick "Set It Off," as well as turns in the comedy "The Wash" and cop drama "Training Day." He announced a deal in 2007 to team with New Line Cinema's Crucial Films to produce a series of dark comedies and horror films and "Thaw" would be the first effort under that compact.

The move into movies is just one of the big deals Dre could be cooking up. According to reports, HTC, the company that bought a majority stake in his Beats By Dr. Dre brand of headphones line -- which he co-founded with Interscope boss and "American Idol" mentor Jimmy Iovine— is in talks to acquire the popular online music service MOG.

And, of course, Dre is also still working on his long-promised Detox album. Rick Ross recently told MTV News that he had joined the likes of Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z, 50 Cent and Nas as a contributor
 to the top secret project.

"We making some things happen, man— we just gonna see where the pieces fall," Ross said. "But we most definitely putting in major work.

Dr Dre is a 'slave driver'

A RESPECTED rap producer says hip-hop king Dr Dre is a hard taskmaster who drives collaborators to tears.
DJ Quik, a Los Angeles producer and rapper visiting Melbourne this week, is working on Dre’s much-anticipated, much-delayed album, Detox.

The album, Dre’s first release in 10 years, might never see the light of day.

“I don’t believe Dr Dre will release that album,” Quik said.

“I think he’s over it and rightfully so. He doesn’t have to prove to anybody that he can still make a hot record.”

 Quik revealed Dr Dre has studied Chopin, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky to inspire tracks on Detox.

But Quik said working with Dre, whose solo hits and collaborations with NWA, Snoop Dogg and Eminem have sold 150 million records, is stressful.

“He’s a slave driver in the studio. He’ll make you cry,” Quik says. “You have to be perfect to work with him. If you not, you want be in the studio, period.

“He’s totally, totally, totally mean when it comes to production.

“He’ll work diligently on one part for hours upon hours upon hours, only to scrap it if he doesn’t feel it’s addictive enough.

“He almost a perfectionist to a fault.”

Too Short Talks Dr Dre Collab

Please note that this was from one year ago.

Too Short recalls linking up with another West Coast legend, Dr. Dre.

If Too Short can be described as the consummate producer of music with his 19th album, No Trespassing, hitting shelves last week (February 28), his polar opposite is Dr. Dre.
But, as Short Dog revealed in an interview with, last summer he helped Dre come one step closer to release his long-awaited album, Detox.

"[Dr. Dre] had this song it was called 'Man’s Best Friend' - aka 'Pussy' -  and from what I understood he kept getting people to rap on it,” explained Too Short. “And Dre is a perfectionist. He didn’t like what they were doing on it and he didn’t plan on using it."

"Then somebody suggested my name, so he called me in. I’m not even gonna lie to you, the rap that I did for Dr. Dre, I didn’t write the rap. Kurupt’s little brother wrote it - Roscoe - and he pimped me one hell of a sixteen-bar verse. Dre had me in there, the first session was nine hours."

Too Short revealed that the respect he felt for Dre was mutual. "You know how cool Dre is? This is how cool Dr. Dre is—he asked his people, ‘how much does Short want for the verse?’ And when I said what I wanted his response was, ‘Pay him double.’ That was the homie. I had never had anyone get at me like that."

Check out the interview below.
