It's a well-known fact that Dr. Dre is always in the studio making music, but it's so very infrequent that the rapper's myriad home-recordings are released for public consumption.

But we might be in for a surprise: Speaking with BBC Radio 1Xtra on Tuesday afternoon, Anderson .Paak—a recent Dr. Dre collaborator—referenced a highly classified Dre-project currently in the works. Watch the video above. 

You'll hear .Paak say amid chatter with host Yasmin Evans that the Dr. is "working right now, doing a lot of work right now." .Paak quickly follows with, "I can't really speak on it."

If this supposed project leads to an eventual release of something—anything—it will be welcome news for the world of hip-hop and anyone who gnashed their teeth waiting for ComptonDre's most recent record and one that took 14 years to drop.
