According to reports, .Paak officially teamed up with Dre last spring after being recruited by an Aftermath representative.
“I was like, ‘Oh, sh*T — Dre hasn’t heard ‘Suede’ yet,’ ” .Paak recently told Billboard, referring to the woozy viral hit by his NxWorries duo with producer Knxwledge. “I’m thinking he might just cut it off and walk out the room; he’s notorious for that. But he started bobbing his head, then says, ‘Play that again.’ And he cranked it, bro — I mean, it hurt my ears. After the third time, he was like, ‘All right. Let’s work.'” (Billboard)
