Our collective hearts lightened and heads nodded at the release of Dr Dre’s new album – The Detox. He’s been bangin’ heads and throwing down parties since the days of Niggaz Wit Attitude when they literally fired the West Coast into the global consciousness. The Chronic along with intro’s to Slim Shady and Mr S. Dogg cemented his production talents as a global brand. He’s unquestionably dope.
The new release shows he’s not gone soft, actually, check the video he looks like he could give The Rock a good old fashioned hetero man wrestle. Buff. His lyrics are just as hard just and inflammatory and his beats will be played for the whole of the summer. The new track featuring Jay Z – Under Pressure – is a rip roaring full on classic, straight off the bat. We will be sad if he follows through with his threat to retire. Imagine the retirement home with Dre hangin’ in it, talk about chillaxing.
