Kendrick Lamar has revealed that he will make several cameos on West Coast veteran Dr. Dre’s oft-delayed album Detox. Speaking with MTV News, the Compton, California native shared the news and explained that he and Dre have a unique chemistry in the studio.
“Me and Dre, I want them to hear it on Detox. I’m confirmed, a few times,” he revealed.
On the musical side, Kendrick says that they bond with one another over commonly shared experiences in having a similar background.
“I mean, as far as the music, we’ve got a chemistry in the study that’s matched to me. Alongside with the music, we just talk about stuff, talk about life in general. Because it’s a side of Dre that the world never seen before, which is really my story and my life that I’m putting out in my music,” he continued. “And I think that’s why we clash together so perfect, because he sees a good kid in my city the same way he grew up. So we can talk about certain situations that he never talked about. I think right there, it’s a blessing to me to have a personal relationship with him, not just the music.”
