Dr. Dre may have dubbed his latest album Compton, as the grand finale, but he already appears to be making his encore performance. This week on Dre’s “The Pharmacy” Beats 1 radio show, during an interview with his Chronic collaborator Snoop Dogg he revealed, “One of my dreams right now is to be able to take my ideas and take a show over to Europe.” And who he proposes to share the bill with: Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Kendrick Lamar.

Listen to the full interview here.


“I’m 30 years in the game right now and I’ve never been able to take my full production over to Europe. Me and Snoop — we’ve been over there. Me and Eminem have been over there, but it’s just been spot dates and taking a microphone over there with a DJ. I’ve never had the opportunity to take the full production over there, and take my full body of ideas over there and present it to all the people over there in Europe that’s been representing and showing me love throughout my entire 30-year career.

This is one of the things that I’ve dreamed about doing. I want to call it ‘Beats & Rhymes’. I want it to be me and Snoop. I want it to be Eminem. I want it to be Kendrick Lamar. (Kendrick, holla at us!) Do a tour over in Europe and call it Beats & Rhymes and take our full production over there and take our full stage over there and show Europe the same amount of love that they been showing me throughout my entire career. So, that’s my dream. Hopefully we can make that happen.”

After his box-office biopic Straight Outta Compton, one would assume an N.W.A. reunion tour, but now the possibility of a Beats & Rhymes trek in Europe, is a more likely route.
