Kaytranada has revealed that he once turned down the chance to show Dr. Dre some of his beats.

In a new interview with GQ, Kaytranada spoke about previous collaborations that never ended up happening. When asked if he had turned any requests down, Kaytranada responds, "There's a lot of artists that wouldn’t have made sense. A lot of pop artists. There's a lot of artists that I used to love their music, but I don't think, like, today it would make sense if I collaborated with them. Maybe I was trippin'! [Laughs.]"

He goes on to list one potential collaborator that he regrets not working with, "Dr. Dre wanted to meet me and play beats and, I didn't think I had the beats to play, and I was just like, 'You know what? Nevermind. Maybe next time.' And I kind of regret it today."

Kaytranada released his latest album BUBBA in December 2019.

After releasing his new LP, Kaytranada revealed in an interview with Zane Lowe that he has another album ready to go that's made up of "what didn't make the album and other instrumentals in between".
