He chopped it up with Dr. Dre about why he named his album 2001 when it was released in 1999, both being big fans of Anderson .Paak, how he balances his personal life and work, Kobe Bryant, and shares his thoughts on the horrible situation of George Floyd, which nearly made him not appear on “YM Radio” as he says it didn’t feel right.
