“When asked at Wednesday’s Beats by Dr. Dre fall presentation when the follow-up to The Chronic 2001 would arrive, the Doc said, ‘That’s a good question. In a perfect world, you know I’m really trying to make Christmas, but we’ll see,’ adding, ‘Something will definitely be out.’
“The hip-hop pioneer has been recording non-stop. ‘I’m actually working on it every day.’ He is making sure to take his time so he doesn’t disappoint fans. ‘I just have to make sure I don’t accomplish this word: anticippointment.’
Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine seemed less confident of the drop date, joking that Christmas may have to move for Dre. ‘I feel that if it comes down to it, Dre will move Christmas. We support him 1000 percent.’”
“Being on the stage with Eminem and Jay-Z was one of the most incredible feelings I’ve felt in a long time. It inspired me, it made me want to hurry up and get back in the studio and put more effort and more work into my own project,” Dre told MTV2’s “Sucker Free” on Wednesday during an event for his latest successful venture, Beats by Dre.
“The response from the people out there was just incredible,” Dre said. “It let me know that I still got love out there and I’m not wasting my time in the studio with what I’m doing, with the music or with all the Beats product that we’re putting out.”
