Do you think about your own death?
Yeah, I do. A lot. I think about it a lot. I try not to think about it but I do and it creeps me the fuck out. It creeps me out because they say that if I got to the hospital two hours later then I would be gone. I think about that a lot. When I lay in bed at night is when I think about it the most. It creeps me out man.
What was the best thing someone said about you? Was there ever a hot Eminem diss?
Um, no. [Laughs.] Nah, I’m kidding. Shit, there was a couple of lines Everlast said like, “You ain’t running up on me with no empty gun.” I know that there is a lot of shit that I would have said about me.
This time it’s the Doctor who’s doing the paying. Paramount Recordings Studios is suing Dr Dre for $1.2 million dollars over what they say is unpaid studio sessions. According to multiple reports, this bill is overdue.
Paramount Recording Studios is seeking exactly $1,220, 500 for “breach of contract,” according to reports landing online Friday (July 23rd). The lawsuit claims that Dr Dre, who also goes by Andre Young, and his record label Aftermath, rented “recording studios and services” but did not pay the agreed amount despite multiple invoices. According to court documents, Dr Dre was to pay the money owed by July 13. When the date passed, they sued.
This is the speech Dr. Dre gave at the ASCAP Awards in Beverly Hills. He was awarded the prestigious Founder’s Award, and he was presented the award by Eminem at ASCAP’s 23rd Annual Rhythm & Soul MusicAwards on June 25, 2010.
