I bolded everyone I’m gonna try and see. Yeah, I’m gonna weasel my way into the festival this year. Somehow. Considering signing up as a volunteer – way I figure, I’ll probably find mad phones and mad drugs. Those are good, right?
Either way, be easy ya’ll. I’ll try and drop a track update at some point this week. For reals.
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.
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
