Dr Dre Says He's Inspired To Record Again, Confirms Eminem Album Wrapping

Dr. Dre checked into Big Boy's Neighborhood today to reveal that Beats By Dre has a new venture. He also said that he wants to make music as long as he can.

Today, Dr. Dre briefly called into Big Boy's Neighborhood show, the syndicated radio program produced by Los Angeles, California's Power 106. Dre's call was relevant to the show, as the Aftermath Entertainment founder has appointed Big Boy's co-host Fuzzy Fantabulous to work on a new Beats By Dre-related project.

While Dre was slim on details, he did offer some, "The most I can say right now is that it's a music subscription service. That's the most I can say right now." It is unclear what Fuzzy's role will be within this new Beats By Dre division or product. The longtime Big Boy's Neighborhood personality detailed the company as merely, "A Beats Music service we're about to launch." Today marks Fuzzy's last day on the show's staff.

For fans of his music, Dre did briefly update a few items. He confirmed that Aftermath star Eminem is wrapping his upcoming album. "[Eminem] is finishing up his project," said Dre. Without mentioning the Detox album, Dre did allude that he was approaching his work differently. "For me, I've just got inspired to go in the studio again," admitted the N.W.A. member-turned-mogul. Last year, Dre and his label released Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d city, in addition to his production for Xzibit, Alicia Keys and 50 Cent. Pointing out that he's approaching the 30-year mark, Dre closed in saying, "Music is my first love, and I'm gonna continue to do that as long as I can."

Dre's first group, World Class Wreckin' Cru released "Surgery" around 1984, marking the longtime deejay's first foray into recording.

Why Didn’t Kendrick Lamar Rely On Dre Beats For His Studio Debut Album? “If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It” Dre Told Kendrick

After becoming a certified rap star over the past year with the release of his ‘Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City’ album, Kendrick Lamar reveals that he no longer feels pressure.

TDE affiliate Kendrick Lamar had one of the biggest years in music last year, earning himself not only commercial success from his studio debut album, but also critical acclaim. A combination that isn’t found too often these days in music, particularly within the hip hop genre. The Compton native recently sat down to discuss the pressure associated with what he does, explaining that he doesn’t “even know what pressure is now.”

“I don’t even know what pressure is now. I’m just doing me man,” Kendrick revealed in an interview with DubCNN. “I don’t even look at it as pressure anymore, I never looked at it as pressure. I just felt I’d make the best music I could make. You either like it or you don’t, but it’s always gonna real to me.”

Seeing that Dr. Dre supported and embraced Kendrick Lamar so heavily during his “come up,” and eventually signing a deal with Aftermath and TDE, fans were surprised to not see Dr. Dre on the ‘Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City’ album. Dr. Dre played an instrumental part of the success for both 50 Cent and The Game on their debuts, but K Dot reveals that Dre wanted him to do his “own thing.”

“Basically Dre just told me to go out there and do my own thing. See the thing about it is, people get so caught up in the hype with just being with Dre, they just figured he had to stand over your back the whole time while you’re doing music. He looked at me as an artist, cause I already had like three street albums out: Kendrick Lamar EP, O.D. and Section.80,

Kendrick continued, “He said I was already ready. All I needed to do is go out and continue to do what I’m doing. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That was the main thing he was always saying. By the time I came and turned the album in to him in, that was when we were supposed to lock in the studio and do some records. But he decided and said ‘You’re done. You don’t need to go back in with me. Because you have all the records here.”
