Dr Dre - Detox Hip Hop's Music's best kept secret
Up to the MINUTE news & rumours of Dr Dreand his highly anticipated album.
A blog by Uzee
Unique song, i liked the concept of it.seems more like a Recovery song by Eminem.other than a Detox song. Alex da Kid did a goodjob, i just wished Dr Dre put some touches in itbut still a good song. and better than most that are out.
It's a good song but it's not exceptional like the ones that Dre has given us ages ago. I'd like to see Dre take over and make a much more melodic beat rather than Alex Da Kid's ones. Honestly I am a hater of Alex's beats. His productions aren't diverse and I found the beat somewhat too similar to Love The Way You Lie. If Dr. Dre can use his creativity more on the rest of the album, it should be fine.
ARE YOU SERIOUS? YOU KATS ONLY LITEN TO THE BEAT OF A SONG AND NOT THE WORDS,BOTH OF EMINEMS CUTS ARE INSANE,HE SPITTING STR8 FIRE,AND DRE'S BEAT AND VOCALS ARE EVEN BETTER. YES,ITS NOT LIKE YOU CAN DRIVE A 64 IMPALA DOWN COMPTON AVE SLAPPING I NEED A DOCTOR,BUT IT WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO THAT KINDA OF SONG,ITS A SONG EXPLAINING WHY IT HAS BEEN TAKING THIS LONG TO PUT THIS ALBUM OUT. WORDS OF ADVICE,GOD GAVE YOU 2 EARS AND 1 MOUTH,Y? SO YOU CAN LISTEN TWICE AS MUCH THEN YOU CAN SPEAK. J-LEEZY FROM THE BAY
I Need a Doctor is the overture to this opera.
Alex Da Kidd should never be affiliated with detox. he made it shitox.
Dre should have swapped out the alex drums, and put in the hard hitting drums he used in Kush. I also feel like the synth used should have been given more layers for deeper textures. Maybe more prominent/hypnotic piano. I mean... he should innovate, but stick to what he knows. And if you look at songs such as "Still Dre," the beat doesnt loop with every verse... it slightly changes. Give us different/better variations with each verse to keep the listener intrigued. I personally prefer a more classical/ opera/ grandeur-esque/ epic feel for music. Regardless of all this, I don't understand how people think this song wont be on Detox. 2 obvious reasons that it will....1. He crashed a Ferrari (aka music vid), 2. I believe this song now has sentimental value to him in regards to him getting his shit together and finishing the album. Anyways, thank you Uzee. U r beyond on top of your shit!! Keep it commin homie
Good Track. Lyrics are great and really deep. It defenetly could have been better with some touches to the beat from Dre but maybe that would have taken away from the meaning of the song. I agree that Alex Da Kid's beat is kind of generic but i guess thats the feel they wanted
I need a doctor is a miss to me becuz. Same reasons as Kush basically.1. Not produced by Dre. If he doesn't even have the inspiration anymore to produce his own songs, he shouldn't even drop Detox. I'm a fan of Dre for his sick productions. If he can't do that, I can't be a fan of him anymore. There's no reason for me to buy Detox if he's letting other producers produce his tracks.2. Only thing I like bout this song is the concept. It's original, I gotta say that. Dre not rapping bout killing people or smoking weed is cool to me. Is what I expect from Detox, something new. However, the girl singing the hook is what ruins the song to me. Just a poppy chorus making the song very corny/poppy and unoriginal.Drefan since 91
eminem straight raps with so much passion it almost saves this song but dre's verse just seems like a poor mans version of forgot about dre
Not such a great song as every one is saying. The only great line off this is the last one by dre but the video was dope
this shit sucks it sounds like a fucking disney ass song wit da lady in the chorus eminem has just been a miss for almost ten years now and I hate to say it but after hearing this i think dre fell off
that last comment was lame. You aint know.
This is more of an "Eminem feat Dr. Dre and Skylar Grey" than "Dr. Dre's latest Detox cut".
