Two weeks ago, the music world was given a big surprise when Dr. Dre announced he'd be releasing an album in promotion of the new N.W.A biopic. Everyone was pumped to hear the news but also skeptical on what to expect from the album. After listening to it I said to myself 'meh'. It sounds like these songs were just picked from a batch and don't have any continuity together at all. Overall, it seems to me that Dre was like 'Yo this new movie is coming out about N.W.A. and I have all of these tight beats, so let's make an album!'. He says that the move inspired him to release new music, but after hearing him say that it makes me wonder how much planning and effort really went into the album. It's no where close to the legend of his previous two albums. The album will still receive love and sales but only out of the respect for Dre. The phantom of Detox made it impossible for the release to ever live up to the hype, but he could have done a lot better.
My favorite song is Just Another Day featuring Game but it could've been a lot longer.
