A clip has surfaced of Doc making a rare appearing during protégé Anderson .Paak’s concert.
The NWA founder sent the crowd wild, playing two of his biggest hits, Still D.R.E. and The Next Episode. It was his first UK performance since 2014, when he joined Eminem for his dates at Wembley Stadium. Dre said he’d come to Brixton’s O2 Academy “to present and represent” Paak, adding: “This man right here is destined to be a star. Trust me.” (BBC)
.Paak has since hit up social media to reflect on the epic Dre moment.

Last month, Anderson talked about his close-knit Dre bond and what fans could expect from his long-awaited new LP.
Anderson .Paak says his Aftermath Entertainment label big boss, Dr. Dre, “had a heavy role in this new album that’s almost done as well. Just going through the mixing phase. I won’t say any dates but you can definitely expect it this year, sometime.” “It’s dope to be around like legends like that and you can feel the mutual respect. That’s what I always did it for, I wasn’t really thinking about money or fame, I just wanted the respect from the people I look up to musically. It’s amazing.” (Triple J)
