Dr. Dre joined Anderson .Paak on stage at the latter’s gig in London tonight (March 13) – watch fan-shot footage of the moment below.

The NWA figurehead and Beats co-founder was an unannounced guest at .Paak’s Apple Music/Beats-organised show this evening, which was only publicised last week.

After taking to the stage at the O2 Brixton Academy an hour after his scheduled time, .Paak surprised his fans during the gig by bringing his mentor out on stage.


Dre performed a short medley of ‘Still D.R.E.’ and ‘The Next Episode’, both of which featured on his landmark ‘2001’ album. He also told the crowd that he was there “to present and represent” .Paak.
