anderson paak dr dre

Dr. Dre made two surprise appearances during the second and final weekend of Coachella 2016 earlier this month: first with Ice Cube and the rest of N.W.A, then he joined his Aftermath protégé Anderson .Paak on stage the following day. In this new mini documentary dubbed All In a Day’s Work — the same name as Dre and .Paak’s Compton collaboration — Beats by Dre takes us behind-the-scenes of the pair’s memorable performance.

The five-minute film follows .Paak as he meets with Dre and successfully persuades him to perform with him. From there, the pair knuckle down to a few high-energy rehearsals while reflecting on their relationship. “The artists I like to work with are people who you know their voice from the first syllable,” says Dre. “Soon as [Anderson] opens his mouth you gonna know it’s him…And he’s coming with his voice, his delivery, his energy, he seems like an old soul.”
