What’s ill, people? Hope ya’ll are enjoying this find Thursday afternoon – I certainly am. Got a day off work so I’ve just been loafing about, scanning the blogosphere for new music. It’s still a little early in the day but there are def some gems floating around out there.
How would ya’ll like to hear some new Deadmau5, Dr. Dre, T.I., Em & Royce and, best of all, a new music video from an up-and-coming band straight out of the illadelph? I shouldn’t even have to ask.
“I’m somethin like an X-pill, everything about me makes bitches start touching they selves”
I’m not even going to make you guys wait until the end of the post to get at this new track, “Turn Me On,” an unfinished number which just hit the web. Not only is this song amazing (trust me, just listen to it) it’s also entirely infuritating. Why? Because the way things are looking it’s on a “possible” track for Detox, which is a damn shame because I think a completed version of this track could be a true hit. The track sort of reminds me of a more sophisticated version of Snoop’s “Sexual Seduction.”
It’s not even the production on this song that’s just great, Dre spits some fire. I really feel like I forgot about Dre’s flow. I think we all did.
Go be reminded.
So here I am, sitting up at 3 am wandering aimlessly about the internet, checking out music and other oddities when I inevitably stumble onto some stuff about arguably my favorite rapper/producer/entrepreneur Dr. Dre. With bated breath I look for more info regarding the release of his next album, Detox. Supposedly the wait is over. Dre has officially announced that his next release will be by the end of this year (I’m still waiting for the inevitable push-back to polish it more…).
But the more surprising news regarding Dre is his new concept album The Planets. Apparently the Doctor has been studying the planets and their properties and is attempting (and hopefully succeeding) in converting them into audio forms. This album will be all instrumental, a hip-hop album without hip-hop. Dre, you’re a revolutionary.
Seriously though, if anyone can do it, it’ll be Dr. Dre. Let’s hope we see Detox first though, else I may just call it quits on music altogether. This wait has been excruciating.
Also, his leaked track “Under Pressure” (featuring Jay-Z). You’ll recognize the beat from his Beats by Dre commercial
In case you forgot…
And my personal favorite
