After almost thirty years of making music, producer/rapper Dr Dre says he is funally ready for a break. Dre, at the SoHo opening of a Beats By Dre store, said after he works with Kendrick Lamar and Slim Da Mobster, he's taking time off.
“These are the next two artists I’m working on, Slim Da Mobster and Kendrick Lamar. I think that’s when I’m gonna just wrap it up for a minute because I’ve been working on music for 27 years now and the longest I’ve ever been out of the studio in 27 years has been two weeks,” Dr. Dre explained. “So yea I feel like I’m gonna take a little bit of a break. I’m never gonna stop music, it’s like air to me. So I’mma take a little bit of a break. Enjoy some time with the family til I get that itch to get back in.”
Dre did speak about his Beats By Dre line saying they will not stop until they have become second only to Apple.
“I’m shocked myself as to how well they’re doing. We’re gonna keep new and exciting product coming. We’re trying to eventually be second to Apple. And I don’t think that’s a bad position,” said Dr. Dre. “We’re really trying to take over everything with a speaker. And also microphones. We’re gonna get involved in that also.”
NOTE: There were no mentions of Dr Dre's highly anticipated "Detox" album, stay tuned!
