I know Dre was working, Im workin with Dre on Detox. I know he workin on his shit. I spoke to him, I know he was coming. I was like, well let me ad, you know, my little bit to the puzzle.
Working with Dre
I tell you what happened with Dre Jay says. He dont care about dates, your roll out or your marketing plan. Its all about the records for him. Me and him fought over Lost Ones. Im like, yo Dre, I have to master my album in two days!
So the rumors are true. Dre did have a track meant for The Black Album. Too bad it didnt make the cut. But DAMNam I glad it surfaced.
Were you referring to Beyonce in that second verse?
if you listen, it says 23, shes 25 now. So its an old emotion, but its a real emotion.
Being asked more about the record, Jay reveals that the song wrote itself, he didnt write it for any controversy and that its just a track that got out there. Im actually shooting a video for it.
A question from Felli Fel, Being that youre gonna be working with Dreare we gonna hear some of those classic kind of westcaost sounding records from Dre? gets a intriguing reponse from Jay:
just remember I told you this. I got a joint called Thirty Something. Just remember I said that. Just remember that name right there.
