"I have waited a long time for this, so the last thing
I want to do after waiting all these years, is to rush the album
and be disappointed.
I am aiming to release the album this
I am focusing on making this a classic album, that will
stay relevant across time.
I have been doing some stuff with Scott Storch, Dre
& Vidal, Cool and
I'm a music maker, I love to create so I'm reaching for
the best out of different situations.
The creative relationship between Dre, the Aftermath
in-house production team and myself has become so strong that it
may not be necessary to use any other producers.
But why not?!
If I gotta call Just Blaze,
whoever, I just want the music to be right".
