Dr. Dre Protégé Dawaun Parker Talks Detox
Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Everyone wants to know more about Detox. When is it coming out? Is it ever coming out? This week I caught up with one of the men in charge of producing the album with Dre, Dawaun Parker, who’s resume already includes working with the likes of Eminem, 50 Cent, Jay-Z and Busta Rhymes, to find out as much as I could. Parker also opened up about an incredible studio session with Em. Here are a few of the highlights from the interview:

On his first day in Dre’s studio:
“I remember being a little awe struck just by the sight of how everything looked. It was like a spaceship with all the lights and things like that.”

On how Detox will compare to the two Chronic albums:
“I just think that it’s a forward progression. I think that there will be reflections of what’s going on now, the fact that it’s 2009/2010.”

On working with Em:
“One time I played live hi-hat and Em rapped strictly in my ear and I was improvising based on what he was doing with his vocals and the cadences and the rhythm changes that he was doing.”
