"I have tracks from Dr. Dre," T.I. told The FADER last fall. "I got a chance to work with the pioneer of the modern form of rap music. Just to see him construct a composition and meticulously go over so many intricate details—you’ve never heard a production of that magnitude. Nobody, nobody, nobody, can produce and perfect a record like Dre. Just to bear witness is amazing. As a music enthusiast, to be able to sit and watch this shit happen is amazing."
