Dr. Dre has a dream. In his vision, he wants to give Europe a taste of his full production with a tour that fully represents his sound.
The Doctor welcomed Snoop Dogg to The Pharmacy, his Beats 1 show, when he revealed his idea for a “Beats and Rhymes” tour, that would to take his show on the road to Europe. But he doesn’t just want to rock the spot with his Dre performance, he wants to make it a full production that would include Dre, Snoop, Kendrick Lamar and Eminem.
“One of my dreams right now is to be able to take my ideas and take a show over to Europe,” he said. “I’m 30 years in the game right now and I’ve never been able to take my full production over to Europe. Me and Snoop — we’ve been over there. Me and Eminem have been over there, but it’s just been spot dates and taking a microphone over there with a DJ. I’ve never had the opportunity to take the full production over there, and take my full body of ideas over there and present it to all the people over there in Europe that’s been representing and showing me love throughout my entire 30-year career.”
Dre revealed his name for the tour and ran down his list of artists who would be a part of the mega production.
“I want to call it Beats & Rhymes,” he said. “I want it to be me and Snoop. I want it to be Eminem. I want it to be Kendrick Lamar. Kendrick, holla at us! Do a tour over in Europe and call it Beats & Rhymes and take our full production over there and take our full stage over there and show Europe the same amount of love that they been showing me throughout my entire career. So, that’s my dream. Hopefully we can make that happen.”
