Dre turned down an offer to work with the King Of Pop
according to Sonicnet. After working on mega successful albums
such as Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Xzibit and his own Dr. Dre 2001, Dre
said he would rather work with new talent.
Dre told MTV Radio
at the American Music Awards: " Somebody
approached me about working with Michael Jackson, and I did say
no because I like working with new artists or people that I’ve
worked with in the past," Dre said. "I can develop them
from the ground up. There’s no set standard that I have to live
up to or anything like that. All I have to do is go in the studio,
and basically they’re going to bust their ass to come in there
and do their thing the way it’s supposed to be done."
Dre has been keeping
busy, Executive Producing Xzibit’s Restless L.P., mixed Snoops
Tha Last Meal, produced cuts on Eve’s new album Scorpion and lent
a hand to Ice T on his new album.
