Dr. Dre - The Message

Dr. Dre – The Message

Often overlooked on Dre’s classic 2001, “The Message” epitomizes West-Coast hip-hop. First and foremost drums hit so fucking hard. Add the staccato keys, upper-octave strings, and Blige’s soulful croon, and you’ve got a track with the perfect pocket for Dre and Rell to surgically attack. Let’s hope that there’s another collaboration like this on Detox… Shit let’s just hope for Detox to even be real at this point.
