Someone must have rapped Bat Signal, because on Monday night (August 15), hip-hop’s ultimate trio of superstars gathered in the studio for an epic photo shoot that sent fans into a frenzy.
“Just a few brothers.. hanging out,” Eminem captioned the snap of himself sandwiched between Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.
And while the triple GOAT image didn’t come with any additional explanation of what the rap icons are up to, it did amplify speculation that they might be working on tracks for Dre’s legendary feature film. Detox album. Earlier this year, Snoop, Dre and Em shared the stage with Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent and Anderson .Paak for this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, and in June, Snoop and Slim Shady jumped on the mic for a collaboration track called “From the D 2 the LBC” celebrating their respective hometowns.
Among the comments elicited by the enigmatic photo: “Drop album”, “GOATS”, “Can some brothers announce this tour”, “LEGENDS” and “I hope to hear soon what you are working on!!!”
Dre was, of course, instrumental in both men’s careers, helping launch Eminem into the hip-hop stratosphere with 1999’s The Slim Shady LP, put Snoop with the title song of the 1992 film deep coverage, then featuring him extensively on his mega-selling solo album The Chronicle. Dre also produced Snoop’s first solo album, 1993 doggy style. The trio first came together for Dre’s 1999 album. 2001, and fans have been eagerly awaiting a sequel ever since.
Snoop lit the spark to talk about a reunion last week when he said entertainment tonight that he and Dre have been working on new music, saying, “We’re up to a little something. I don’t want to talk too much about it, but we’re back together. It’s been 30 years since we last worked on a record, and we’re doing something, we’re working on something.
As of press time, no further information was available on what the men are working on.
