ABOUT THE ARTIST

Speaker 2: Wow.
Dr. Dre: At three hours a day. It was crazy how this happened. It just let me know how powerful I could be. I'm like, "Damn. If people are buying this, wait until I really get the chance to get in the studio and some real equipment in some real time." He was one of 18 kids picked out of three thousand to go to Juilliard, so that tells you a little bit about what his talent is and what his capabilities are, but he's doing an amazing job.
But overall, the movie is just freaking me out sometimes. It's just weird watching my character being portrayed, but it's a really cool thing. Around the set it's just been all love. We've been in some really, really rough areas in Compton and in South Central and it's just been nothing but love, nothing but love, man, and I really appreciate that. We're going to make this city proud because this movie is going to be something that's incredible and I'm excited about it.
With Eazy-E it was really important to me that we got his story right and we represented him in the right way. I read some things where people were saying that we might be attacking or something like that. That's just stupid. Eazy-E was a very close friend of ours where we've gotten comments from his family and they've actually been on set.
I actually wanted to be here to make sure I gave it the right energy, to make sure everybody knew that I was serious and I'm really behind what we're doing here. I also wanted to make sure that these certain intricacies don't get missed or skipped, because no matter how many stories we tell, and no matter what the script is, when you start shooting it, there might be small, little things that you would only know if you were there that matters in the movie, so I was here for that as well.

Danger Doom

While MF DOOM (born Daniel Dumile) is highly regarded as one of the most inimitable figures in hip-hop, part of his legacy also lies within his collaborative work and in his eccentric half-dozen alter egos. Of those experimental projects, his partnership with Danger Mouse (born Brian Burton) is one of the most celebrated. Their debut project, The Mouse and the Mask, was released to critical acclaim in 2005, utilizing the collective moniker DANGER DOOM. The project was released in the UK through Lex Records, as well as in the United States through punk label Epitaph Records, marking the latter imprint's third foray into hip-hop. Best known for his work with the Gorillaz, Beck, the Black Keys, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Grammy Award-winning producer Danger Mouse handled the instrumentation, while DOOM focused on the animated vocals and eccentric lyrical direction. For DANGER DOOM‘s debut, Danger Mouse chose to sample exclusively from various animated shows airing on Adult Swim, Cartoon Network's late-night programming block—with a handful of cartoon characters from Aqua Teen Hunger Force making appearances on the album, in addition to the likes of Cee-Lo Green, Talib Kweli, and Ghostface Killah. With support from the network and famed comedian Dave Chappelle alike, the project was released in October 2005 and quickly became a cult fan favorite. While the album sparked several noteworthy talking points, MF DOOM's diss against his former collaborator, MF Grimm, undeniably stood out. The Monsta Island Czars (M.I.C.) member later responded with the track "Book of Daniel," during which he accused DOOM of selling out. With many hailing the seemingly unlikely pairing of MF DOOM and Danger Mouse as an undeniable success, DANGER DOOM delivered once again the following year, releasing their 2006 EP, Occult Hymn, exclusively though AdultSwim.com. Although DANGER DOOM has not reunited since 2006, their small-but-impactful body of work remains heralded as one of the most experimental and pleasantly absurdist collaborations to come out of the 2000s.
