West Coast producer Dr. Dre has named his favorite emcee currently in the rap game and what artists have remained under his radar as of late.
According to the "Doc," he is prescribed to the sounds of Jay-Z and hopes to hop on his Blueprint III follow-up.
"I mean Jay is my favorite. I'm a huge Jay -Z fan. I love it. I'm waiting for his record right now. Hopefully, I'll get a track on it. We'll see. Yeah I love it. Because it helps keep alive the type of music that I love to do." (XXL Magazine)
Dre also said he has kept up-to-date with Jay's Roc Nation artist, J. Cole.
"Just recently, actually, I've heard some really good artists. I'm a fan of J. Cole. I like Don Trip. Those two I was actually in this studio working with recently, and I really like their vibe. Especially J. Cole. I think that kid has a serious future ahead of him. He's articulate. The way he speaks is - he's got it. All he needs is the record now." (XXL Magazine)
