my musician friends on fb went crazy over it, but I don't like non-break beat drums and stuff

 

Animals with Anderson paak was the favorite from what I heard, but even then once he comes in with chorus/new 808 effects I tuned out

selling black social revolution through a hollywood movie is a bad idea

Over-compressed, over-thought, contrived pop crossover wannabe BS, most of this album is. Very little actual feeling or soul. Sick of rappers rapping about how important they are. How wealthy, how intimidating. Like cmon son. At least rap about how nice you are at rapping (ah the good old days) if you're not gonna tackle an actual subject

There's a little doco on YouTube by like noisey or something? About the Atlanta "sound" Look it up. It's basically poppy, trapped out, over polished, VST style shit where the rappers talking about their money's and their bitches.

The Atlanta sound is trap house. Loud, sharp snares, stupid hi hats. Big in the strip clubs. Ohhh yeah.



Dre is like the Peter Gabriel of rap. Wait 10 years for a turd.

wax is inevitable, wouldn't be surprised if an instrumental edition hit shelves at some point too . . . why not milk the purported last of his studio efforts?

He never does anything original, he just makes whatever is contemporary sound good. The mastering is great real smooth.

Sorry but I really like this album. Mostly for the beats.

 

The production's good but it doesn't sound too poppy to me really.

 

Not as poppy as say, an Eminem album.

 

 

 Dre sounds funny spitting Kendrick's lyrics.

 

Yeah I will admit that's true .. he didn't need to copy so exactly - the sing song bits and everything.

 

But when would a Dre album ever be about Dre rapping? He's a producer - as opposed to a beat maker. He's crafted some decent songs here and got some good MCs on them.

 

Anyway yeah I think it's pretty decent.

I think it's decent to, just not revolutionary. Just not awesome. Just not matching the hype that Dre gets.

Worst part about it is Dre's rapping, but the production is stellar. Don't know what y'all are talking about—a pretty awesome album all things considered.

You good. But i guess the crap trap and gay stuff above ground obscures. I dont know the gritty stuff-but Outkast Goodie Mob and Ali Shaheed Muhammed taking his expertise down there all has worked its way nicely into my wax collection.

proud to say I haven't listened to a second of music from this project yet.   

 

not w/ hyped projects -- I'll wait for the buzz to subside and maybe give it a listen

 

I was never all that into Dre to begin w/.  That's not to say I don't have a great deal of respect for what he's done and contributed to humanity, much less the hip-hop culture, but I haven't been moved by the campaign -- albeit as saturating as it has been.  It's going to take a lot more than a 'Straight Outta _____' meme generator or SnapChat filter to convince me to listen, God forbid, buy an album I never anticipated.  

 

Side note: Nipsey Hussle, Dom Kennedy, the whole TDE camp, and probably some others I'm forgetting about as I write <--- 'rappers' out of the West Coast I'm a fan of

One of the strong points of the album in my opinion is the emcee-ing. Is that really Snoop?! Thought it was Eminem! Then he said nigga, and I had to check the credits.

Any thoughts on the film or is it too early?

 

Been a lot of hype, is it all it's cracked up to be?

 

Methinks not.

 

Now there's a Bill Cosby edge to it all:

Yah. I have not seen It but I just saw the clip last night when Cube comes up with the lyrics for Fuck The Police. If that is anything to go off of, it seems a very simple, Hollywood formulaic, biopic. Gross.





Speaking of Cosby (and gross), anyone remember this episode?

I enjoyed the film.  Dude who played Dre looked more like Ne-Yo but that's neither here nor there.

 

By all accounts the storyline is authentic and accurate -- been received well by people in the know -- there's something to be said about that in my opinion.  Not exactly sure about this but from what I've seen it's rare that a biopic be produced w/ sizable contributions from its leading character(s)?  More than anything I'm happy to see NWA getting honored.  The truth is that as a collective they changed the course of hip-hop and, on a greater scale, socially conscious music period.
