He also addressed Dr. Dre‘s involvement in the project, stating that he’s given him full creative control. “He’s involved. What’s crazy, he gave me the freedom to go out and do me. That’s a great thing about the situation, because you don’t have that in today’s game where people actually really believe in what you’re doing.”
