Today, Dr. Dre briefly called into Big Boy’s Neighborhood show, the syndicated radio program produced by Los Angeles, California’s Power 106. Dre’s call was relevant to the show, as the Aftermath Entertainment founder has appointed Big Boy’s co-host Fuzzy Fantabulous to work on a new Beats By Dre-related project.
While Dre was slim on details, he did offer some, “The most I can say right now is that it’s a music subscription service. That’s the most I can say right now.” It is unclear what Fuzzy’s role will be within this new Beats By Dre division or product. The longtime Big Boy’s Neighborhood personality detailed the company as merely, “A Beats Music service we’re about to launch.” Today marks Fuzzy’s last day on the show’s staff.
For fans of his music, Dre did briefly update a few items. He confirmed that Aftermath star Eminem is wrapping his upcoming album. “[Eminem] is finishing up his project,” said Dre. Without mentioning the Detox album, Dre did allude that he was approaching his work differently. “For me, I’ve just got inspired to go in the studio again,” admitted the N.W.A. member-turned-mogul. Last year, Dre and his label released Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city, in addition to his production for Xzibit, Alicia Keys and 50 Cent. Pointing out that he’s approaching the 30-year mark, Dre closed in saying, “Music is my first love, and I’m gonna continue to do that as long as I can.”
Dre’s first group, World Class Wreckin’ Cru released “Surgery” around 1984, marking the longtime deejay’s first foray into recording.
