Dr. Dre tells Busta Rhymes he made 247 songs during pandemic

Legendary rapper and producer Dr. Dre has spent the last 2 years working on at least a dozen albums’ worth of material.

In the clip, shared on social media couple of days ago, Dre can be seen sitting behind a mixing desk in a studio, while Busta Rhymes looks at him inquisitively.

After being asked a question about his output, the Compton  : “Ni**a, I got… Yeah, 247 songs during the pandemic, and then we paused and did a whole album with Marsha Ambrosius. That’s f**king nutso – and then we came back, and … I did the Grand Theft Auto s**t, and now we’re working on my ni**a Snoop Dogg. And you know, we are two days in right now and we’ve got, what, like six bangers?”

The “Grand Theft Auto shit” that Dre mentioned refers to the six songs he made for the Grand Theft Auto Online expansion The Contract, which was released last December and featured Dre as a character. Songs also featured guest appearances from Eminem, Anderson .Paak, Rick Ross, Nipsey Hussle, Snoop Dogg and Ty Dolla $ign.

Next month Dre also performed alongside Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent and Anderson .Paak for this year’s Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show.
