Producer DJ Khalil recently spoke about his relationship with Dr Dre and even revealed some facts that you may not already know about the good doctor. DJ Khalil says he thinks Dr Dre's image may be intimidating to people, outside of his circle.
"I don't think people understand how unbelievably humble he is. To be on his level and to be an icon, he's one of the most humble people I've ever met in the music business. He's confident in what he does, but he's not arrogant. He's very humble, very approachable. People can be intimidated by him because of his track record, what he's done up to this point and the music he makes. But at the end of the day, Dre is a fan of music, he's a creative person, and he's open to things. I've seen him play classical music on the piano." (Hip Hop DX)
DJ Khalil also spoke about how he feels Dr Dre is simply a music fanatic and expresses that by putting his life into the business.
"He's really a student, and once he dedicates himself to something, he goes all out. He's taken piano lessons for years. People don't understand how much work he puts in. And he remains humble. He's a humble, good person. And people on that level can't even stay that way, but for him to be through all that he's been through and to still be in a place where he's approachable and open to things and a fan of music, and a fan of creative people and the creative process, it's really incredible to work with him. That's probably the biggest thing, he's a very humble person." (Hip Hop DX)
