Dr. Dre hoping for another Jay-Z collaboration
Dr. Dre wants to work with Jay-Z again.
The rapper-and-producer - who previously worked with the '99 Problems' hitmaker on 'Under Pressure', but the track was dropped from his forthcoming album 'Detox' following internet leaks - is hopeful he can team with his pal again on a different song.
He told XXL magazine: "I mean Jay is my favourite. I'm a huge Jay-Z fan. I love it. I'm waiting for his record right now.
"Hopefully, I'll get a track on it. We'll see. Yeah I love it. Because it helps keep alive the type of music that I love to do."
Dre also praised up-and-coming rapper J. Cole and is looking forward to hearing the 25-year-old star's album, 'Cole World', when it is released next March.
He added: "Just recently, actually, I've heard some really good artists. I'm a fan of J. Cole. I like Don Trip. Those two I was actually in this studio working with recently, and I really like their vibe. Especially J. Cole. I think that kid has a serious future ahead of him. He's articulate. The way he speaks is - he's got it. All he needs is the record now."Posted on 13 Dec 2010 16:15 to category : Music News
