Comparing Kanye's next album to Dr Dre's classic, Ross adds…"I was just like, Wow. I listened to [Kanye's] beats, and we working on what I'm doing, but then he's in another room cooking up something … and just the intensity that you have to have to create albums that are gonna stand the test of time for years. He's such a great producer himself, and to have a Pete Rock over your shoulder just working on a particular sound and DJ Toomp, No ID, and Nicki Minaj, I see what's going on. It's The Chronic all over. That's exactly what I said when I walked into the room: This is The Chronic, this is how it had to be."
