Dr. Dre is heading back into the studio, with reports that the much rumoured N.W.A. biopic is finally off the ground.
One of the most iconic producers hip hop has birthed, Dr. Dre has been away from the studio for too damn long. Focussing on his groundbreaking USC tech project, it seems that the break has left the West Coast artist feeling rejuvenated.
Chatting to LA Weekly (via HipHopDX), Dr. Dre revealed that he is desperate to get back into the studio. "I'm more inspired to go back into the studio now," Dr. Dre said. "Beats is rolling, this (USC) thing is happening, and it's incredible. Now I'm ready to go back to my first love."
The producer is not working on any specific project, though - it seems that Dre missed the thrill of a creative project. "I'm going back to the studio," he continued. "Not for any specific reason, but just to record because I love to record music. I'm going back in and hopefully the next Kendrick Lamar or the next Eminem walks in the door and I can work with that artist. I'm going to record forever."
Elsewhere, Dr. Dre revealed that the much vaunted N.W.A. movie has finally been given the green light. Speculation has surrounded the film for some time, but it seems that shooting could begin shortly.
"We just got the green light from Universal," the producer revealed. "I was just with (Ice) Cube and F. Gary Gray yesterday writing the script, so it looks like it's really happening. Gary is directing the movie. It's going to be a true story. It's going to be based on all the true events that happened."
