Dr. Dre’s relationship with albums has been one of ups and down. Some 16 years after Dre’s 2001 debuted, and all hope was lost for Detox, the tech mogul delivered Compton last year.

Only his third studio album since 1992, Compton could very well be the inspiration Dre needed to get back in motion. According to newly-signed Aftermath artist, Anderson Paak, Dre is indeed putting together new material.

Speaking to BBC Radio 1Xtra this week, Paak casually revealed that the Doc is “doing a lot of working right,” but kept the details short. “I can’t really speak on it.”

Dre and Paak have forged a friendship in addition to their business dealing. Prior to Paak’s interview, he received a congratulatory phone call from Dre.  “I don’t know too many dudes in [his] positions that still really care about the music.”

Check out the interview clip below.
