Even after the release of last year’s Compton, Dr. Dre, once rap’s great recluse, still doesn’t get out of the house that often. So it’s significant that, during last night’s performance at the Forum on Los Angeles, Drake introduced Dre as special guest. During the show, Dre performed his classic “The Next Episode,” and Drake introduced Dre as the first person who’d ever given him a paycheck for music. During the same show, Drake also brought out Big Sean to rap his giddy singalong verse from “All Me.” Watch fan-made videos of both performances below.
I hope that all of you will one day get to go to a rap show where Dr. Dre comes out as a surprise guest. It’s really something.
