wait so Dre had co-producers as well as ghostwriters? Has he actually ever done anything?
i realize if i watch the interview it'll probably go into that but I just wanted to say it :P
good question, The Glove says in part 2, how everyone thinks Michelangelo painted the sistine chapel, but the truth is a whole bunch of other painters did it, michelangelo probably planned it all out and finished it off and shit but there were other painters doing the work too, that was a pretty good comparison with Dre.
Dre's had a lot of co-producers and people give him samples, but to be fair, a lot of producers use other musicians too, i think nearly every producer has to bring in keyboard players and sometimes drummers, I saw a video of Black Milk telling some drummer how he wanted the drum beat to go and the drummer did it on live drums. But it is fucked up how The Glove never got credit, and it sounds like The Glove did more than just follow dre's direction but actually made the beats himself like on Xxplosive.
I was listening to a recent Sam Sneed bootleg, Sam Sneed is another of Dre's old co-producers, I read in an interview that Dre didn't actually producer Keep Their Heads Ringin but Sam Sneed had done it, Sam Sneed got co-production credit but never got any money for it. Then I was listening to these unreleased Sam Sneed songs and the songs sound just like the same drum patterns as keep their heads ringin, makes me wonder what Dr. Dre did
