You know what, I don't know how I'm supposed to feel about Detox actually happening...
When '2001' dropped in 1999, I wasn't reading XXL or The Source regularly, I didn't have MTV or The Box at home, I wasn't even the biggest Dre fan if I'm honest. I remember seeing the CD in HMV and parring it for another album (of which I won't be mentioning lol). I wasn't familiar with the artist features (Eminem, Snoop, Nate Dogg & Mary J aside)... to be honest I wasn't really much of a West Coast Hip Hop fan, my cd collection was pretty much NY rap heavy.
Since getting bought the album as a present, doing a bit of homework and getting into '2001''s predecessor 'The Chronic' and the best of Dre's catalogue, plus the Aftermath label's output since the good doctor's last album I've built up great anticipation of 'Detox' like I'm sure all Dr Dre fans out there have.
'Kush' the leaked buzz track turned single has gotten a lukewarm response from the blog world & people I've spoken to about it, some love the production & the familiar territory, others hate it simply for the Akon feature or laziness of Dre enlisting Snoop for another weed song. The video has gotten some hate too (or maybe I follow too many stylists & fashion heads on Twitter?)

BEAT THIS is the new producer series from the brains of Tim & Barry, its something they started back in 2007 that got put on the back burner but with a little kick up the arse from yours truly its on & popping for 2010 & beyond!
The deal is, we go into the workspace of a producer & give them 10 minutes to make a beat with a few cameras capturing the magic.
Check out Swindle's 10 minute Funky House creation above & like I say in the intro...vote on the video using the youtube comments!
Look out for more coming soon!

Pac Div are a 3 man rap collective from the west coast, similar to Dom Kennedy they are new breed of Cali rappers still trying to bring the Hip Hop back to the west [when it left, who knows?].
They've dropped a few mixtapes, around 3 to be precise "Church League Champions" being my favourite, heres a new track they put out last night via twitter featuring another LA native Blu.

My favourite has to be The Game Vs 50 cent.
The Game says "He's 50, so he'll figure out a way to sell somebody some G unit maxi-pads or suttin."
Fiddy's reply, "I just gave you your first 3 singles."
