Dr. Dre is on the verge of releasing an album that supposedly includes a feature from Public Enemy’s own Flavor Flav. Recently, the legendary hype man was a guest on the “Wild Ride! with Steve-O” podcast where he expressed gratitude for the opportunity to be on the forthcoming project.
“I was just at Dr. Dre’s house a week and a half ago,” Flav said. “One of the best people in the world, man. Not only that, but I’m honored for him to have me record something at his house for his upcoming album that’s getting ready to come out. That’s big to me, man. C’mon. Flavor Flav on a Dr. Dre album? Man. Word. That’s big to me, bro.”
Flav’s revelation of his collaboration with Dre adds on to anticipation already surrounding the rapper’s first album since 2015’s Compton. Following his recovery from a brain aneurysm in January, the likes of Diamond D and Grandmaster Flash have taken to social media to tease Dre’s new record.
“Here in LA doing the Disco Oasis with Nile Rogers tonite,” he wrote on Instagram. “I get a call from one of my heroes he invites me to the CRIB he takes me down to the STUDIO he played me a project that will change the game!! Totally incredible, we top off the day for 2hrs talkin about Music, Family Health and Life. Thanks for the Invite Dr Dre.”
Dr. Dre has yet to announce his new album and/or its official release date.
