Following the release of his 2019 album, “Jesus Is King”, Kanye West began mentioning an upcoming project with hip hop legend, Dr. Dre.
Hype immediately began circling the two, and a number of ‘teasers’ have been made public since then. In a ‘Sunday Service’ at Greater Emmanuel Temple Church in Lynwood, California, Kanye furthered the excitement by explaining how he got Dre to work on this project with him. “I used to spend all my time trying to make my beats be mixed as good as Dr. Dre, who knew all I had to do was do an album for God and then Dr. Dre would start mixing my beats,” explains Ye. Less than a month after that, there were reports of Kanye recording “Jesus Is King Part II” in Wyoming and then a Dre-produced “Up From The Ashes” single was leaked online.
Now, as Kanye continues to work on the Yeezy and Gap partnership, “Kids See Ghosts” cartoon with Kid Cudi, and a new video for “Wash Us In The Blood”, he has given more insight towards the Dr. Dre collaboration that he has been teasing for almost a year.
To add even more buildup, rap veteran and long time friend of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, made two instagram posts showing Dre and Ye in the studio working together. One of them lead fans to believe that Snoop will be featured on Ye’s “Jesus Is King Part II”, and in the other, the “Doggystyle” rapper states,
“Kanye West got some hot music. Shhhhh. Kanye West got some hot shit. Only I can get exclusive footage. Shut up. Kanye West got some hot shit. It’s finna come out. Dr. Dre touched it.”
