Dr. Dre is notoriously reclusive when it comes to media coverage, but recently the legendary producer opened up about a number of things in an interview with Esquire. Dre revealed that he only listens to his music during the creative process, not after it’s been completed.
“I don’t even listen to the records after they come out,” said Dre. “It’s outlawed in my house. My wife and my kids can’t play any of my music around me. Once it comes out, for me, it’s just business. Numbers.”
Dre also spoke about how the creative process sometimes gets a hold of him. “I’ve gone seventy-nine hours without sleep, creating,” he said. “When that flow is going, it’s almost like a high. You don’t want it to stop. You don’t want to go to sleep for fear of missing something.”
