Chris Noxx, of the group Tha Piecemakerz, is also partly responsible with helping craft “If I Was Dre” with KXNG Crooked and DJ Silk. Check out the tribute to the world’s greatest rap entrepreneur and near-billionaire, Dr. Dre after the jump.
Dr. Dre’s new album Compton is officially out today via Apple Music. Inspired by his work on Straight Outta Compton, the upcoming N.W.A. biopic, the album features Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Eminem, and more. Below you can stream the full album, again courtesy of Apple Music. This is Dre’s first album in over sixteen years. Looks as though Detox has been given the shelf treatment once more, which means Compton has some big shoes to fill. Stream Compton after the jump.
Fabolous can’t seem to escape the past. Throughout his career Fab has worked in references to the old school; sports, music, culture, video games, clothing, etc. You name it, Fab has somehow managed to squeeze it into his bars. His most recent project The Young OG Project in it of itself was riddled with nostalgia. So it only makes sense for the Brooklyn emcee to continue with this on his “B.A.S Freestyle.” In case you didn’t get the reference via the art above, it’s Fab going over Dr. Dre’s song “B***hes Ain’t Sh*t” from his 1992 debut album The Chronic. Check it out after the jump.
In the unlikely case that you forgot about Dre, his long-awaited, much-delayed Detox album isn’t happening after all. Or, at least under the codename Detox.
