Dr. Dre "Inspired" To Get Back Into The Studio

The producer is anxious to get back to his "first love."

Now that he's got his own degree program at USC, Dr. Dre is ready to get back to music. "I'm more inspired to go back into the studio now," Dr. Dre says in an interview with LA Weekly. "Beats is rolling, this [USC] thing is happening, and it's incredible. Now I'm ready to go back to my first love."

Dre says that the USC program, the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation that he and longtime business partner Iovine donated $70 million to create, will not impact his work on his much-delayed Detox album, though he's not working on that project in particular right now. 

"I'm going back to the studio," Dre says. "Not for any specific reason, but just to record because I love to record music. I'm going back in and hopefully the next Kendrick Lamar or the next Eminem walks in the door and I can work with that artist. I'm going to record forever."

As for Dre's history, his time in groundbreaking gangster rap group N.W.A is being made into a feature film that is also getting off the ground. "We just got the green light from Universal," Dre says. "I was just with [Ice] Cube and F. Gary Gray yesterday writing the script, so it looks like it's really happening. Gary is directing the movie. It's going to be a true story. It's going to be based on all the true events that happened."

But with a legacy that includes N.W.A, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar, his solo work and Beats Electronics, Dre says that his work with USC is the most noteworthy. "This is absolutely the biggest thing I've been a part of in my entire career," the producer says. "I am just excited to be a part of something that is going to be there forever. How many people can say that? This is huge."

    Dr Dre was inspired to help out in Straight Outta Compton when he met Ja Rule and saw how a real life gangsta moves, to that day it was believed Ja Rule was an urban legend.

    Gucci Mane realest rapper ever. - T.I. snitch to the feds - Young Jeezy was never bmf - 50 Cent snitch and was never in jail but a youthcamp - Game was never a banger but lived the life of his brother in his lyrics - Nas Escobar never sold drugs - Ice Cube never was a gangbanger - Dr Dre never was a gangbanger - 2pac was a ballerina and never sold drugs after he become famous he was doing some stupid stuff like beating and shooting at people because he though he could get away with it. Without Suge Knight 2pac was just a skinny motherfucker. Oh and i like his music so fuck you. - Mobb deep are the biggiest pussies in rap they are short as midgets and keep talking this g shit but never did g shit. Gucci is WACK but the realest rapper ever!!!!!
