LL Cool J's Rock The Bells Radio show on SiriusXM has produced great interviews with legendary music figures like Eminem, Ice Cube, Beastie Boys, and DMC. This weekend, he'll hold a rare conversation with Dr. Dre, airing this Saturday (April 20) at 3 p.m. ET.
In a pair of clips Billboard debuts today, Dre reminisces about getting Eazy-E to rap and meeting Snoop Dogg for the very first time. LL originally met Dr. Dre in the early 1980s, but it wasn't until recently that hip-hop veterans really connected on a more personal level.
"I wanted to gain some insight into his creative process, as far as what it's like to be in the studio with him, his love for collaboration, and having that perfectionist mindset," LL tells Billboard. "We went deeper in that regard and he took it back from the beginning when he first fell in love with music. It's a peek behind the curtain of somebody who is really special in the world of music."
