Dr. Dre and Eminem open up about their first joint studio session for a newly-released clip from the HBO documentary The Defiant Ones. Having discovered Eminem and placing him on a national platform before anyone else, Dr. Dre brought Slim Shady into his home to record in his own personal studio.

The end result of Dr. Dre and Eminem’s first studio encounter as collaborators ended up earning both artists a flood of recognition, both critical and commercial. To hear the entire story for yourself, check out the Defiant Ones clip above. On the meeting, Dr. Dre stated:

“I had a studio in my house at the time, and I went and I put some samples together and did a couple of things in the drum machine and I did a lot of recording … I was like ‘Man, listen. I put this sample together. Tell me if you like it. And I hit the drum machine, and maybe two or three seconds went by and he just went, ‘Hi! My name is… my name is…’ Like, ‘Yo! Stop.’ Shit’s hot. That’s what happened our first day in the first few minutes of us being in the studio.”

Previously, Dr. Dre discussed his initial failures as a solo artist, recalled his first run-ins with Snoop Dogg and more for HBO’s new docu-series. Yesterday, the iconic producer, rapper and entrepreneur also unveiled a new single in support of The Defiant Ones.
