One of the perks of becoming a member of the Interscope Records family is meeting icons like Dr. Dre. The label’s newest signee Lloyd shares what it was like to meet the Doc and be one of the few to hear his long-awaited album Detox. “It’s history, it’s classic, it’s epic. It’s like L.A. stand up, it’s like West Coast,” he tells Rap-Up TV.
Not only did Lloyd get to hear Detox, but Dre also listened in on his studio session with Polow Da Don. “It was humbling, but at the same time, it was like stepping in the room with a lion and then you walk out and you feel like you’re unstoppable.”
Lloyd’s new single “Lay It Down” even received the stamp of approval from the hip-hop pioneer. “He heard the ad-libbing at the end, and he was just like, ‘Damn!'” says the Southern gentleman. “That reaction alone for me was validation.”
