Posted by Moeski on Saturday, February 14, 2009 at 6:57am EST
The same way I started this article is the same way Mr. Dre Marshall started spittin' on his album, "Room 819"......spittin' hard from the very first song. Dre submitted his work to me weeks ago and when I had time to sit down and hear what my man was talking about I was hooked from the jump.
Have you ever had to hustle man/12 years old I was on the block hustlin'. Got tired of seeing my people strugglin'/My destiny was either Scarface or Billy Graham. I wanted diamonds to throw around like Roc-A-Fella/Got myself a .45 just so I could rock a fella. I was a young wanna-be I didn't know no betta/'til an O.G. told me to be about the cheddar........I'm in your hood Romans 1 verse 16/Puttin' in work like the first and the fifteenth. I ain't no gangsta, I ain't wit' that/It was grace that kept your brains under the Yank hat. This for my thug dudes and for my saved folk/And tell the gays that we're taking back the rainbow.
The same way I started this article is the same way Mr. Dre Marshall started spittin' on his album, "Room 819"......spittin' hard from the very first song. Dre submitted his work to me weeks ago and when I had time to sit down and hear what my man was talking about I was hooked from the jump. When I come across an artist like Dre it baffles me that him and other dope artists don't get the pub that they deserve. Yeah, I know now-a-days being a rapper is the new hoop dream. If you talk to 10 people today at least 7 of them will be aspiring rappers. So yeah I know that everyone can't get the coverage they deserve because the game is filled with emcees trying to get on. But when you hear my man Dre spit you can't do anything but help try to get this dude some awareness.
Dre also knows the formula to being a successful artist in this ever changing rap game, too. And that formula is, make gutter music for the streets but make sure you have some radio hits that the ladies can feel too. That's one of the things B.I.G. said 'Pac told him as he was just getting into the game. To me, the lyrics you read above was for cats like me who loves that straight gutter stuff. But then you have joints like "Sista" and "Sista 2 ft. Mahogany Jones" that are strickly for the ladies and pure radio hits. While Dr. Dre may have thought people "Forgot About Dre", this Dre is nobody to sleep on.
