2 Chainz explains studio session with Dr. Dre on “Drink Champs.”
The rapper explained his encounter with Dr. Dre during studio session when he featured on “Drink Champs,” DJ EFN and N.O.R.E’s podcast. The rapper talked about his journey and experiences he had with Dr. Dre.
Some of the topics he talked about include his latest album, “Dope Don’t Sell Itself.” Also, he talked about his collab with Lil Wanye and why he parted ways with Ludacris’s label DTP (Disturbing Tha Peace) and more.
He spoke about one of his encounters with Dr. Dre in a studio session where he told Dr. Dre he wasn’t Eminem.
“I went to Dre’s crib,” Chainz said.
“He sat right here, and I was rapping right here and it was little funny cause I was getting little frustrated because, I don’t know, I’m country, or whatever…I’m from Atlanta. At this time I told him, ‘Look, I’m not like a white boy from Detroit. I ain’t f**king have like… Because he was stopping me like ‘Nah, change it.’ I’m trying to rap but he is a perfectionist. It’s the reason he is f**king who he is so I got that.”
Speaking further, he said, “I’m somebody that can probably do… I can do two or three songs in one night. But with him [Dr. Dre] it would probably take months to do that because of the process of just getting one verse down and making sure you enunciate things and make sure it’s clear. I’ve been on there a few times, and I learned a lot from him. He’s just a perfectionist on how he does things. I think my accent and my enunciation was a problem. He was trying to tell me how to do it. And I told him ‘You know I’m from Atlanta right? I’m not gonna sound like the bro you have been working with’.”
