Dr. Dre is undoubtedly one of the most influential artists of all time. Having classic albums with both N.W.A. and during his solo career, Dre’s also one of a couple musicians to help mentor the youth.

In a recent interview with Montreality, YBN Cordae stopped by to show love to the Compton legend.

“Dr. Dre is hip-hop,” Cordae says. “There is no hip-hop without Dr. Dre. He cultivated the sound and the culture of hip-hop. Through three decades, he’s always had the top sound…He always cultivated the best artists, the most impactful artists of every decade. Of every era, he has his hand in it. With NWA, he is NWA. With himself, with Snoop Dogg, with 2Pac, Eminem then 50 Cent, then Kendrick Lamar. Bro!”

Cordae went on to give Dre more praise and talk about the times they’ve both worked together in the studio.

“For me to even be able to speak on him in person. He’s extremely motivating. He’s very encouraging. He’s got great energy man, I can’t speak highly enough about him. He’s good peoples man. Just outside of that, he’s like a black superhero. For real. And he’s buff as f***! He look like it. He’s in better shape than all of us in this room. A thousand percent,” he said.
