LL Cool J chops it up with Dr. Dre for an exclusive interview that will air over the weekend on LL’s SiriusXM channel, Rock The Bells Radio for his series “The Influence of Hip-Hop.”

During their conversation, Dre recalls Eazy-E being nervous about hitting the mic to drop some bars, and LL wants to know what his first meeting with a young Snoop Dogg was like, Billboard reports. The publication also notes that LL and Dre originally “met in the early 1980s, but it wasn’t until recently that they were able to connect on a more personal level,” the outlet writes.

“I wanted to gain some insight into his creative process, as far as what it’s like to be in the studio with him, his love for collaboration, and having that perfectionist mindset,” LL tells Billboard. “We went deeper in that regard and he took it back from the beginning when he first fell in love with music. It’s a peek behind the curtain of somebody who is really special in the world of music.”

LL also teased unreleased music with Dre that’s “not necessarily for public consumption,” he said.

“We’ve done a lot of experimenting,” LL explains. “We have 30 to 40 songs we recorded together that have never been released. We just create art and make music that’s not necessarily for public consumption, but to just have fun and create.”

LL Cool J also revealed to Billboard that he is working with Ice Cube to purchase 21 Fox regional sports channels. But their bid has experienced some push back from Charter Communications.

“It was Charter who was stepping on our toes and didn’t seem like they wanted to play ball,” LL says. “They were giving us a rough time. We just believe it’s time for a diverse and inclusive sports network that speaks to today’s mindset that represents the culture of America.”

For more of LL’s interview with Dre, tune in to his Rock The Bells Radio show (Ch. 43 on SiriusXM) as part of “The Influence of Hip-Hop” series at 3 p.m. ET on Saturday (April 20).
