Hip-hop fans will be salivating at the mere thought of this: Dr. Dre has stated his desire to tour Europe with friends and collaborators Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar.

The rap icon made the claims during his Beats 1 radio show The Pharmacy on Sunday, saying that he wants to bring a 'Beats & Rhymes' tour in this general direction.

"This is one of the things that I've dreamed about doing," he said. "I want to call it 'Beats & Rhymes'. I want it to be me and Snoop. I want it to be Eminem. I want it to be Kendrick Lamar. Take our full stage over there and show Europe the same amount of love that they been showing me throughout my entire career. So, that's my dream. Hopefully we can make that happen."

He continued: "I'm 30 years in the game right now and I've never been able to take my full production over to Europe. Me and Snoop, we've been over there. Me and Eminem have been over there, but it's just been spot dates and taking a microphone over there with a DJ. I've never had the opportunity to take the full production over there, and take my full body of ideas over there and present it to all the people over there in Europe that's been representing and showing me love throughout my entire 30-year career."

You heard the man, European gig promoters… get cracking.
