Dre, who executive produced the US rapper's 2012 album 'Good Kid, MAAD City', is returning for Lamar's third studio LP. "One thing about Dre, you can't take the music away. No matter how much money he has, he's always gonna be right there in that studio," said Lamar of Dre's recently signed $3 million Beats deal with Apple. "That's before the deal, after the deal. He's always locked in there. That's something that I know personally."
