TAME IMPALA "Currents"
Haven't got it yet?? Go get it... Now.
Doctor knows best.
16 years in the making. Waiting…
16 long years since “2001” was blasting out of every radio in hip hop and the whole world was finally about to embrace hip hop forever. Eminem was just about to conquer the world and not much later 50 Cent would no longer be just money. Not accidentally two protégés of the doctor.
But ok… “2001” hit it big. “Still D.R.E.” for me is still one the best hip hop songs ever, the punchline “Smoke Weed Everyday” is probably the most famous oneliner ever and the whole record became so recognizable and significant to a style that only Dr. Dre really knows how to handle perfectly.
How do you beat that?
16 years passed in wich every so often a rumour followed that “Detox”, wich the new record was set to be called, was being worked on or even was going to be released soon. Everytime with the same outcome. No new album… And it seems this was all for the good because detox was definitely not what the good doctor needed.
Not at all. Long live the chronic. Long live hip hop. Long live Compton.
Easy E… CPT… OG… from tha other side…!
Paying homage to his fallen fellow Nigga With Attitude Eazy E.
No, the doctor did not forget where he came from. And he has not lost one bit of his attitude eighter. Andre Young knows what hip hop is all about and you can feel this troughout the whole record. This is gansta rap where only few people really know how to get it there. Gangsta storytelling and taking a glance into the diary of a rap mogul.
Where Kendrick Lamar (Again Dr. Dre!) took us to roll out with the gangsta kids of Compton in “Good kid, M.a.a.d. City”, Dr. Dre is taking us for a ride with the big boys in “Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre”.
Chronic for the people.
Pills from the doctor.
