Let us all just take a moment, put our hands together, and pray.
This year’s been big for Dr. Dre. He’s been involved in the release of Straight Outta Compton (which he helped produce) which grossed a cool $199.1 million at the box office. Add to that the release of his his third studio album, Compton: A soundtrack by Dr. Dre, he has been very busy. Now the entire world is hoping he’s about to get a whole lot busier.
On a recent edition of his pharmacy radio show on Beats Radio, Dre, was joined by Snoop Dogg and voiced his aspirations of a huge tour around Europe:
One of my dreams right now is to be able to take my ideas and take a show over to Europe. I’m thirty 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 we’ve been over there, but it’s has just been like spot dates and like taking a microphone over there with a DJ. I have 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 thirty year career.
I want to call it Beats and Rhymes. I want it to be me and Snoop. I want it to be Eminem. I want it to be Kendrick Lamar… Hopefully we can make that happen.
To which Snoop Replied:
Your dream sounds like Woodstock on steroids, let’s call it Woodstock.
I’m with the Dogg on this one, it has to be called Hoodstock now. Beats and Rhymes just doesn’t cut it, after he’s put that out there.
My 14 year old self, somewhere within me, who has just heard The Chronic and 2001 for the first time is rather buzzing right now.
Tragically there isn’t a video of this conversation on YouTube as it was only available on apple music. But here’s a short clip from the show of Dre and Snoop talking about the origins of one of their most famous tracks. Gwan Snoop.
