Dr. Dre is officially back. The legendary West Coast hip-hop producer premiered the video for his latest single, “I Need a Doctor,” on Thursday (February 24), and MTV News’ “RapFix Live” will break down the clip at 6 p.m.
The song is the comeback number from Dr. Dre’s Detox, following his buzz single “Kush” featuring Snoop Dogg and Akon. On “I Need a Doctor,” Dre and Eminem trade endearing verses about their bond over the Alex Da Kid (B.o.B, Nicki Minaj, Lupe Fiasco) production. The pair recently performed the number live for the first time at the Grammy Awards.
Log on to MTV.com for “RapFix Live Dr. Dre’s ‘I Need a Doctor’ Video Premiere” hosted by MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway. Alex Da Kid and Skylar Grey, who sings the track’s chorus, will join Sway via Skype to discuss the song and video.
“That was amazing,” the producer told MTV News last year about working with Dre on Detox. “He’s one of my favorite producers of all time. Everybody knows how much of a perfectionist he is: He’s been working on his album for 11 years. For him to bring me in, trust me, not micro-manage me, and let me bring what I do to the table, I can’t even describe how that makes me feel.
“I think it’s gonna be huge,” he added “It’s just my opinion, but it’s one of my favorite songs that I did and just what it means for hip-hop.”
Don’t miss “RapFix Live: Dr. Dre’s ‘I Need a Doctor’ Video Premiere” with Skylar Grey and Alex Da Kid at 6 p.m. tonight on MTV.com.
