Anderson .Paak: “‘Medicine Man’ was the last song to make in ‘Compton’ album, it almost didn’t”

Remy Gelenidze

In a new Intterview, Dr. Dre’s protegee Anderson .Paak talked about how the record “Medicine Man” with Eminem happened:

“Medicine Man almost did not make it, that was one of those last songs to make in the album…It went through different phases. There was a chance that it was not going to make it, Dre didn ot like some part of the songs, I think it was bridge or something and then Dem Jointz, who produced it, called me and said ‘Yo Dre loves the song other than this part so can you come in and do something.’ Eminem was not already on it. And then they were like we want this one to sent to Eminem but we wanted to make sure it is right first. So Dre put his verse on it and now they were looking at me to fill this bridge part… I did something and put it on it and after that they sent it to Em. Em really liked the whole song, every part about it. Then he did the verse and sent it back and then I think when they sent back the song, they had to completely restructure the beat around Em’s verse cause it was so crazy, so Dre was like ‘I wanna restructure the beat, like a Movie switches when Em’s verse comes in’ So we build around Em’s verse and move around his verse and that’s how it ended up. Eminem’s verse was nuts.”
