On him and Dr. Dre not working together:
“I don’t know where that came from. I think it came from maybe him being in the studio with Game. And that is like…I still haven’t heard anything from the time dash was spent in there. So you don’t know how positive or negative or what that was. I still haven’t heard his record.”
