“Dre’s the homie, to be honest with you,” T.I. told Rolling Stone of working with the legendary producer.
“I’ve never seen somebody so meticulous about music before. The only thing that I can say was a similar experience was when me and Eminem did those songs together. The way [Eminem] is about a verse, that’s how Dre is about production. It’s a very tedious, meticulous, nerve-wracking process. But the outcome is immeasurable. You just can’t describe the difference in the magnitude of production that goes from what we’re used to doing and what he’s used to doing.”
“Dope” is exclusively available on Tidal, which recently inked T.I. as its latest artist-owner. The rapper has not yet cemented the release date for his upcoming ‘Dime Trap’, but when it arrives it’s sure to be a banger!
