[Trap] Dr. Dre Ft. Snoop Dogg – The Next Episode (Dani Deahl x Jason Edward Remix)

Dr. Dre Ft. Snoop Dogg
The Next Episode (Dani Deahl x Jason Edward Remix)

Happy 420 to all the partakers out there! For you, we have something special from Dani Deahl and Jason Edward. An homage to two of music’s most well known tokers, the two producer’s tweaked Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s “The Next Episode” into a tasty twerk treat. Get down and boogie your bottom, or kick back and chill (and smoke), the choice is yours. The introduction uses the iconic original beat, but then builds into the drop where fat horns matched with ripe vocal chops fire into the mix. As heard in previous Dani Deahl works, there’s a little moombah phrase that creeps in the song too. Dani Deahl and Jason Edward dished this out as a 420 present, so you can download the track for free. Enjoy the holiday!

[LIST] Hip-Hop Cash Kings: The Richest Rappers

Forbes recently released a list of 2012’s hip-hop “Cash Kings,” ranking the rap world’s top earners. Snagging the #1 spot was Dr. Dre, who wrangled up a whopping $110 million — half of which can be attributed to his Beats by Dre headphone brand. The West Coast producer and emcee was joined by #2 Diddy (buoyed by his Ciroc vodka), #3 Jay-Z (his money raked in from number of places, like the Brooklyn Nets) and #4 Kanye (reaping much of the benefits from Watch The Throne). Eminem, who hasn’t exactly been a popular face for corporate endorsements and sponsorships, still placed at #9, bolstered by his music, selling more albums in the last 10 years than any artist. What are your thoughts, ninjas?

1. Dr. Dre – $110 million
2. Diddy – $45 million
3. Jay-Z – $38 million
4. Kanye West – $35 million

[Album Review] Rick Ross – God Forgives, I Don’t

MIA might have a new king, watch out Pat Riley. Ricky Rozay has released a monster of an album and isn’t scared to tweet about it. Ross recruited Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Andre 3000, and his MMG crew to be part of his historic album. The Boss utilizes Florida producers Cool & Dre and the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League to create some polished, jazzy beats. With his lyrical evolution from Hustlin’ to GFID, it’s safe to say Ross has revolutionized the current rap scene to a more lyrically conscious audience, compared to artists like Waka Flocka. He diverges away from the typical trap music we associate with the drug aficionado and takes a turn to a more sophisticated mogul.

Ross’ taste has changed & he is altering the menu of rap/trap/hip-hop with him. With standouts like “Sixteen,” “Diced Pineapples,” and “Presidential,” Rick Ross has created THE standout hip-hop album of the summer. And with competition like Royalty,The Yellow Album, Life is Good, and Self Made Vol. 2, it’s a close race. Let’s see if G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer can break the finish line first, though. Stream a few of the notable tracks below and cop the album on iTunes.

[Hip-Hop] Rick Ross – 3 Kings ft. Dr. Dre & Jay-Z (Prod. Jake One)

It took me a while to form an opinion on this track. Whenever you see monster collaborations like this, it is only natural to set the bar incredibly high. My initial reaction was that this didn’t quite meet my expectations. After a few listens, though, it has grown on me considerably.

We can’t be too hard on the Doctor’s opening verse considering he has only released a handful of bars in the last decade. On this, he borrows the Boss’s flow and delivers a decent verse. There isn’t much to say about Ross’s contribution, as it was exactly what you would expect. Hov, on the other hand, delivers something special as he anchors the track. While also utilizing the MMG frontman’s fat-rapper style, his lyricism shines all the way through until he goes acapella declaring, “I love this sh*t like my own daughter/spray these [ninjas] baby just like daddy taught ya.” The legendary producer Jake One provides the ideal instrumental and deserves a lot of credit for setting the tone for three hip-hop giants. Rick Ross’s God Forgives, I Don’t hits stores July 31st and will surely be worth a listen.
