    Is it just me or do I not get the hype about Dr. Dre beats anymore? I always thought his beats since like The Aftermath album sound pretty basic and don’t bang to me at all. Even Chronic 2001, I didn’t even find the beats to be that great.

    I haven’t been a fan of Dre’s beats for a long time.
    He just doesn’t really make the type of beats I usually like anymore.
    This beat kind of hinders what could have been a really good track.
    It only saving grace is the Alkaholiks and King T features.

    I hear y’alls about Dre’s production in the past decade but I think this beat is pretty boss and the dudes ripped it on the vocals. Definitely excited for this LP as xzibit was one of my favorite MCs in the 90s.

    Dre’s beats have their own sound signature and they haven’t moved a lot since the mid/late 90s. It’s like Preemo’s beats (just to use an example): If you hear them, you’re not in doubt who it’s made by. You can spot it instantly after a few seconds of listening.

    With that said, I can easily understand what you mean. HipHop/Rap (sound) is ever changing and Dre hasn’t really moved in either direction. He’s still doing “Dre”. Guys like El-P, Dan the Automator, Kanye West, RJD2, MF Doom, just to name a few, have turned everything upside down (not in a negative way), and I would never have thought that I would grow tired of Dre’s beats. I still think he’s a great producer and he can still “hang” with the best of them. He already proved that on “The Recipe” but I don’t find him that interesting anymore compared to some of the newer names. I mean, El-P and Dan the Automator really turned the genre on its head with the Funcrusher Plus and Dr. Octagonecologyst release.

    I don’t know if it’s because of the long layoff and the forever wait on his long awaited album but he’s not really on my radar that often anymore. I actually catch myself listening a lot more to The Chronic than Chronic 2001. I grew tired of Chronic 2001 really quickly.

    With all that said, I’ll still be in line to buy Dre’s album, if it ever gets released.

    P.B., good to know somebody feels the same way. The drums are usually really weak and the melodies seem so basic.

    Dayz, At the Speed of Life is such an amazing album. I miss that Xzibit. Dude seems like nice guy though.
