This song finds Dre and local Los Angeles artist Anderson Paak trading stories about their continual grind.
Paak performed on six songs in total on Compton. He told NME how he hooked up with the hip-hop legend. "I got invited to work on Dre's Compton project," he explained. "Dre was giving out ideas for what he wanted the vibe of [album track] 'All In A Day's Work' to be. I asked if I could get on the mic and started riffing off the top of my head. When I opened my eyes, everyone in the room was just like 'Wooooh, yeah!' And, after that, I was always over there."
Jimmy Iovine supplies the introduction in which he states you need to work hard and persevere in order to be successful in life. Iovine is the co-founder & former CEO of Interscope Records. In 2006, he teamed with Dr. Dre to found Beats Electronics, and when Apple bought out Beats in May 2014, Iovine was hired to become a leader of the Apple Music campaign.
