What is your process like when going through beats/creating beats?
To me, it has everything to do with the vibe I get from the instruments and what I hear myself saying over the track.once I figure that out, I take it from there
Where do you find your main source of inspiration?
listening to my old material. It helps me grow as an artist and talk about things I haven't talked about yet...
How often do you find yourself putting unfinished rhymes/songs/beats to the side for a later date?
Not often... When ever I work on something I try to finish it asap.
What is the window of time you give yourself to write a rhyme/song/finish a beat?
It takes however long it has to until I think its a good record
If you had the opportunity to work with another artist, who would it be? Why?
Jay- Z of course.... Because hes a legend and somebody who I've always respected as an artist. One of the greatest to ever do it...
If you had the opportunity to work with any producer, who would it be? Why?
Kanye... I think his production and vision is crazy. He's responsible for so many classics. Or Alchemist because I'm a fan of that gritty sound too.
Do you have a "Plan B"? If so, what is it?
Either production or photography
At what point will you stop doing music and put your attention on your "Plan B"?
Never... I'm always gonna do music regardless of it being plan a or plan b... watever
When listening to music, what do you classify as wack? What grabs your attention?
Basically all these generic sounding beats and lack of content or originality. Good production and lyrics with meaning grab my attention.
Are you a one man team or do you have a group of people that assist you throughout your journey of music?
I have a company [influential music group] who I own with hollywood p and [blakdoun ent] with blue buddaz. I collaborate with artist on other projects sometimes too...
Promote yourself... Website, social networking sites, current music available, soon to be released music, etc.

seems like dre is really considering getting into the electronic business more then DROPPIN DETOX!!!
The HP Envy 15 Beats limited-edition laptop is set to arrive October 22 and will feature the same technology applied to Beats by Dre headphones. The black notebook computer — retailing at $2,299 — will come bundled with mixing software and a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. Fellow producers Timbaland, Polow Da Don, Pharrell Williams and Will.I.Am also helped fine-tune the machine’s sound.
“Sound is the heartbeat of music,” Iovine told MTV News about their latest collabo. “And Dre is the heartbeat of sound. He set the standard for many, many people.”
“If I spend a year in the studio and spend all this time tweaking [my production] and making sure it sounds right, my main concern is for you to hear it the way it should sound,” Dre explained to MTV News. “The way it was meant for you to hear it.”
Also this month, Beats by Dr. Dre is set to release a Lady Gaga-inspired line of headphones called Heartbeats. Diddy told MTV News recently that he might partner with Iovine and Dre for his own line as well.
“I feel like I’m in great company. I’m in the best company of the world,” Diddy said of uniting with the pair. “I feel like how A-Rod felt when he got traded to the Yankees.”
