In a recent interview with Beats 1, iconic rapper and the founder of N.W.A. Dr. Dre has shared his thoughts about new generation hip-hop music.
“Still D.R.E.” rapper stated that the current rappers care more about quantity than quality in the hip-hop music. He said:
“Right now, I have to really, really search hard to find something I like, as far as hip-hop goes. I think it’s just about the substance. Now it feels like it’s a little more quantity over quality. ‘Made a song last night, I need to put it out tomorrow.'”
“What are you gonna dedicate yourself to, the art or the money? You know, it’s that simple.”
