Anderson .Paak says rapper/producer 'still cares about the music'
Dr Dre is “currently doing a lot of work” on new music, according to Aftermath Records’ latest signing Anderson .Paak.
The musician signed to Dre’s label in January and the duo have recently been working together on new music.
Anderson .Paak revealed on BBC Radio 1Xtra that Dre “still cares about the music”, despite only releasing one album of his own in the past 16 years. .Paak also claimed that Dre is “one of the realest” when discussing his relationship with the producer.
New music from Dre would be the first since last year’s ‘Compton’, which .Paak featured on. The LA artist released his second LP ‘Malibu’ in January this year, following his 2014 debut ‘Venice’.
Speaking to NME recently about being part of Aftermath Records, .Paak said: “It’s such a surreal thing. Five years ago I would have laughed if someone had said, “Not only are you going to be working with Dre, but you’re going to be on his last project [‘Compton’].”
Anderson .Paak has just finished his 2016 ‘Off the Ground’ tour, including shows at London XOYO, Manchester Ruby Lounge and Glasgow O2 ABC2.
