THIS IS AN “OPEN LETTER” TO MY FAVORITE HIP-HOP PRODUCER DR. DRE. WARNING: This Blog May Contain Language Not Suitable for Small Children and Is Only for Those Who Really Love the Music of Dr. Dre. It’s not for the meek or easily offended at the rant of a hip-hop advocate and enthusiast. That said, it’s simply metaphysically time for new music from Dre. If you agree with me, I need you to prove it, I need you to tweet, share, e-mail, and get on the phone so this message goes viral. If you’re not down with that, stop here, this blog’s not for you.
When The Chronic: 2001 dropped, only four states allowed the use of medical marijuana in the United States. Today, Mary Jane is legal recreationally, decriminalized, legal medicinally (see here: http://medicalmarijuana.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=000881), or a combination of the three — in 25 of America’s United States. Here’s a map with the break down from http://www.theweedblog.com .
If that ain’t reason enough Dr. Dre should have had another CD, EP, LP… Fuck It, even a new freakin’ single out by now, I don’t what is… but there isn’t, so I wait… “Still…. Dre”
AN OPEN LETTER TO DR. DRE — Infused with the Lyrics of his Hit Song “Still D.R.E.”
“Still D.R.E.” (feat. Snoop Dogg)
IT WOULD BE DOPE IF YOU WERE BACK
Still, still doing that shit, huh Dre?
[Dr. Dre] Oh for sure, check me out
I DON’T THINK SO, IT’S BEEN TWELVE YEARS — 12 – IS ME ‘STILL’ WAITING FOR DRE LP A PIPE DREAM?
It’s still Dre Day, A.K. nigga
TRUE DAT, AS I AM “STILL” LISTENING TO “The Chronic”; Snoop Doggy Dogg’s “Doggystyle”; and “The Chronic 2001” since you “STILL” HAVE YET TO DROP SOME NEW SH*T
Before I chrome the lot, can’t keep it home a lot ’cause when I frequent the spots that I’m known to rock
You hear the bass from the trunk when I’m on the block. Ladies, they pay homage, but haters say Dre fell off – How nigga My last album was “The Chronic”
THE CHRONIC 2001 THAT IS… 12 YEARS AGO
They want to know if he still got it
They say rap’s changed, they want to know how I feel about it
[Snoop – singing]
If you ain’t up on thangz
Dr. Dre is the name, I’m ahead of my game
IN A WORLD WHERE KANYE WEST IS AHEAD OF THE GAME IN RAP OVER MUTHERFUCKIN’ DR. DRE, “SOMETHING SOMETHING JUST AIN’T RIGHT.” RICK RUBIN LACED YE’S “YEEZUS,” AFTER WEST COMPLETED HIS NEW RELEASE – WHAT!!! I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING THAT IN THE MEANTIME
Still, puffing my leafs, still with the beats
Still not loving police (Uh huh) – Still rock my khakis with a cuff and a crease (for sure) – Still got love for the streets, repping 213
“F*CK THE POLICE” WHERE’S THE LOVE FOR THE FANS? “THE “NI**ERS THAT WAS DOWN FROM DAY ONE” “WHERE IS THE LOVE”?
Still the beat bangs, still doing my thang
SEEMS LIKE YOUR ONLY THANG IS THE ‘BEATS’ BANGIN’ IN YO’ ‘BEATS’ HEADPHONES WRAPPED ARIUND THE BRAIN OF MOFO’S I SEE ON THE SUBWAY TRAIN
Since I left, ain’t too much changed, still
I BEG TO DIFFER — SINCE YOU LEFT A WHOLE FREAKIN’ LOT HAS CHANGED… DID I MENTION THAT 21 MORE STATES HAVE REGULATED THE USE OF MARIJUANA SINCE THE LAST DR. DRE ALBUM DROPPED? ISN’T THAT IRONIC, 21 REVERSED IS 12, THE NUMBER OF YEARS IT’S BEEN SINCE YOU DROPPED YOUR LAST ALBUM
[Chorus:] [Snoop Dogg] I’m representing for the gangsters all across the world. Still hitting them corners in them low low’s girl
[Dr. Dre] Still taking my time to perfect the beat — And I still got love for the streets, it’s the D-R-E [Repeat 2x]
I STILL GOT LOVE FOR YOU DRE, AND I KNOW THAT THERE’S A MULTITUDE OF BEATS THAT MILLIONS WOULD AGREE ARE PERFECTED, IF YOU WOULD ONLY PUT SOMETHING OUT…
Since the last time you heard from me I lost some friends
Well, hell, me and Snoop, we dipping again
I WISH Y’ALL WAS…
Kept my ear to the streets, signed Eminem, he’s triple platinum, doing 50 a week, Still…
STILL? IS EM STILL DOING 50 A WEEK STILL? LOOK I KNOW YOU OR EM DON’T NEED THE MONEY AND I TOTALLY RESPECT SNOOP DIVERSIFYING HIS CRAFT AS AN ARTIST – ALL HAIL SNOOP LION!… HE NEEDS A NEW DRE TRACK TO SPIT ON
I stay close to the heat And even when I was close to defeat, I rose to my feet
AND I WANT YOU TO KEEP ON RISING, BUT CAN WE GET SOME MUSIC THAT’S GONNA GIVE US A RISE. WHERE’S THE FIGHT AT? HOW ARE YOU NOT PISSED AT ALL THE SUB PAR SHIT WE BEEN GETTING’ HIT WIT OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS – WHAT UP WIT DAT”
My life is like a soundtrack I wrote to the beat Treat my rap like Cali weed, I smoke till I sleep
BROTHER YOU BEEN HYBERNATING… WHAT DO YOU THINK WE AIN’T GONNA LOVE IT? PLEEZ, JUST DROP IT BABY
Wake up in the A.M., compose a beat
I KNOW THERE’S HUNDREDS OF TRACKS IN THE VAULT LACED WITH MCS YOU DONE CAME ACROSS. THERE’S ENOUGH TRACKS IN YOUR ARSENAL, THAT YOU CAN CALL 6 TO 12 OF THE DOPEST MC’S, AND HAVE THEM DROP SOME NEW SCIENCE ON THOSE GEMS YOU BEEN KEEPING IN THE TRASURE CHEST. YOU CAN’T TAKE ‘EM WITH YOU – LET ‘EM OUT, I’M FEENIN’
I bring the fire till you’re soaking in your seat It’s not a fluke, it’s been tried, I’m the troop . It’s “Turn Out the Lights” from the World Class Wreckin’ Cru
I FEEL HAVE ALL THE RIGHT IN THE WORLD TO MAKE THIS DEMAND, BECAUSE I BEEN DOWN SINCE THEN, OH YEAH…
I’m still at it, After-mathematic
ALTHOUGH THE KENDRICK CD FROM THE HOUSE OF AFTERMATH WAS A FAVORITE FOR ME LAST YEAR, AN AFTERMATH RELEASE, DOES NOT A NEW DR. DRE ALBUM MAKE
In the home of drivebys and ak-matics Swap meets, sticky green, and bad traffic I dip through then I get skin, D-R-E
It ain’t nothing but more hot shit Another classic CD for y’all to vibe with
WHERE? WHERE IS THIS CLASSIC CD? IT DON’T EVEN HAVE TO BE “THE DETOX” ALBUM. WE CAN ALL JUST PRETEND THAT WAS A CONCEPT AND MOVE ON, JUST DROP SOME NEW SHIT.
Whether you’re cooling on a corner with your fly bitch
I DONE WENT FROM THE CORNER, TO THE WHIP, TO THE CONDO, TO A NEW CHICK N****… WHAT, AND “STILL”…
Laid back in the shack, play this track
NO — “I’M REPRESENTING FOR THE GANGSTERS ALL ACROSS THE WORLD.” SENDING THIS OPEN LETTER AS A MESSAGE THAT YOU’RE VIOLATING AN UNSPOKEN CODE THAT PUTS YOU IN A POSITION TO SHOW AND PROVE. GET INTO THE GROOVE AND DROP SOME FUCKIN’ NEW TUNES. I’M THE GANGSTER OF MUSIC THAT’S “STILL” TELLING YOU IT’S DUE, AND I KNOW YOU DONE HEARD IT FROM YO’ CREW. I AIN’T GOT TO SCHOOL YOU, YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO…
[Dr. Dre] I’ll break your neck, damn near put your face in your lap, Niggas try to be the king but the ace is back
WHERE’S THE KING AT? I’M MORE THAN READY FOR THAT ACE IN THE HOLE?
[Snoop – singing] So if you ain’t up on thangz
[Dr. Dre] Dr. Dre be the name still running
RUNNING MAYBE, THE GAME, NOT SO MUCH THESE DAYS…
the game , Still got it wrapped like a mummy, Still ain’t tripping, love to see young blacks get money — Spend time out the hood, take they moms out the hood — Hit my boys off with jobs, no more living hard — Barbeques every day
IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO HAVE A NEW DRE ALBUM TO PLAY AT BAR-B-QUE’S THIS SUMMER CAUSE FROM THE LOOKS OF THINGS, IT’S GONNA BE HOTTER THAN A MUTHER
driving fancy cars Still gonna get mine regardless
GET YOURS DRE, GET IT – CAN WE JUST GET A LITTLE LOVE, 12 YEARS MAN
[Snoop] Right back up in ya muthfuckin ass ’95 plus four pennies — Add that shit up, D-R-E right back on top of thangs — Smoke some with your dog
I CAN’T WAIT TO…
No stress, no seeds, no stems, no sticks! Some of that real sticky icky – Ooo Wee, put it in the air , oh you’s a fool D.R.
GET FOOLISH DRE – THAT’S ALL I GOT TO SAY.
Go here for a blurb on a new release from Eminem and another statement that the long wait for “Detox” will not be in vane.
In need of beats by Dre
