Following the release of Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie,” Dr. Dre’s “I Need A Doctor,” and numerous other songs, Wisconsin-born singer Skylar Grey has steadily made an impact on the Hip Hop world with her vocals.
Grey performed alongside Dr. Dre and Eminem during the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards and now the singer is working with producer Alex Da Kid on her debut solo album. The British producer recently spoke to MTV’s RapFix about working with Gray and launching his own label.
"I'm working on Skylar's project, and I'm really excited about that,” Alex Da Kid explained to MTV News. "She's the first artist signed to my label. I'm just wrapping up my label situation right now, and that's my main focus."
Alex Da Kid also spoke briefly on his experience working with both Dr. Dre and Eminem.
“I met Em before I met Dre and Em is like a joker,” said Alex Da Kid. “He definitely doesn’t act like someone that’s sold the most records of this decade. So once you’re around him for two minutes you kinda just fall into a pattern of joking around and having fun. And when I met Dre for the first time…[he’s] kind of just way more relaxed and all about the music. I think once you’re around people that just love music as much as we all do it kinda just all makes sense.”
There’s still no word yet on when Grey’s debut album will be released; the album will be the first project released through Alex Da Kid’s label.
