“Kid Cudi’s last album, Speedin’ Bullet is the best thing to come out in a long time,” said Andre. “[Young] Thug is charging up the rap game. Future is charging up the rap game. These are people I listen to.”

As far as Cudi’s 2015 LP Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven, Andre is in agreeance with his former girlfriend Erykah Badu. Late last year, the soul singer also named the 26-track alternative album as one project she has been listening to a lot.

Music definitely runs in the family. Andre also revealed Seven Benjamin, his son with Badu, has been exploring his father’s art form.

“He can actually rap, but he don’t want people to know that he can rap. But he’s good,” stated Dre about Seven. “I told him to do it and don’t tell people. Just put it out. If people like it, they like it. You can reveal at any time.”

The star of American Crime added, “He might already have songs out that y’all listen to and you don’t even know.”
