(2:08) …representation of my core audience, that’s why I make that music. It speaks directly to the aggression necessary to survive in the environment. And I do write the harsh realities, but I gotta make the record that you can actually play on the show.

Where’s that Complex soundboard? We need that aggressive content. ARRGHHH.

Video: Dr. Dre & Jimmy Iovine Talk $2,229 “Envy 15 Beats” HP Laptop

October 13th, 2009 No comments

As if the headphones weren’t trashed enough by real audiophiles for being overpriced, here’s an overpriced laptop.

The HP Envy 15 Beats limited-edition laptop is set to arrive October 22 and will feature the same technology applied to Beats by Dre headphones. The black notebook computer — retailing at $2,299 — will come bundled with mixing software and a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. Fellow producers Timbaland, Polow Da Don, Pharrell Williams and Will.I.Am also helped fine-tune the machine’s sound.

“Sound is the heartbeat of music,” Iovine told MTV News about their latest collabo. “And Dre is the heartbeat of sound. He set the standard for many, many people.”

“If I spend a year in the studio and spend all this time tweaking [my production] and making sure it sounds right, my main concern is for you to hear it the way it should sound,” Dre explained to MTV News. “The way it was meant for you to hear it.”

Also this month, Beats by Dr. Dre is set to release a Lady Gaga-inspired line of headphones called Heartbeats. Diddy told MTV News recently that he might partner with Iovine and Dre for his own line as well.

“I feel like I’m in great company. I’m in the best company of the world,” Diddy said of uniting with the pair. “I feel like how A-Rod felt when he got traded to the Yankees.”
