If Dre's music is changing then its a good thing. People need to think more broader and expect changes. I know that its a sudden shock when an artist changes the style etc. But its not that big of a shock.
I still find it amazing that some music fans don't know quality when it's front of them. What i mean is that the tracks below (only 2 for starters) just fly over some folks heads and they don't notice the quality of these tracks. Maybe because they are too different to them?
Busta Rhymes - Legend of the fall offs
Jay-Z feat Coldplay - Beach Chair
