Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on September 03, 2021, 06:30:11 PMI genuinely wonder how much of Dr Dre's Detox actually got completed before he chucked it in the bin. For a while it was like the Duke Nukem Forever of rap albums; although thinking about it maybe it's better it did go in the bin.
Quote from: Malcy on September 03, 2021, 07:02:08 PM1000's of tracks. I have at least 2 or 3 albums worth of tracks intended for it and other released songs that beats were originally for Detox. Several versions have been completed. With the divorce, he's been in the studio pretty much since he nearly died and everyone from Grandmaster Flash to Flavor Flav has either heard what he cooked up or contributed to it in some way.Happy to zip and and Google Drive what I have if anyone wants a listen without derailing this thread. I've been collecting rare tracks from Dre for years and a person bought a storage locker this year which belonged to a bigwig at Aftermath which was rammed full of demos etc.
Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on September 03, 2021, 07:05:17 PMOh wow, I didn't realise there was so much stuff, the rumours started coming out straight after 2001, when I was still in school and some of it even at the time sounded like made up playground hyperbole, so in my mind it's still this amazing but ethereal thing. I didn't realise there had been lots of leaked tracks and roughs (as I'd not really looked). I'd take you up on the drive offer (and still might) but it's clear there's some fairly basic surface scratching I ought to do before that.
Quote from: peanutbutter on September 03, 2021, 07:18:32 PMWasn't a lot of what was originally meant to be Detox actually used on the 50 Cent album? He continued toying with stuff for years after that but not necessarily all focused on being for one specific album.Yeah it was. I've always wondered if this is when scrapping numerous versions of Detox started. Maybe he thought it better suited to 50 and decided to then go with a different sound and this has just happened over and over since. On The Game's Aftermath debut, i forget the name came out, the track 'Higher@ had Dre appear out of nowhere and say "Look out for Detox".Should revisit Compton, remember thinking that album was shockingly good on release
Quote from: sevendaughters on September 04, 2021, 10:34:15 AMI listened to the first three tracks off the new Drake on my way home from work. As "event rap" releases go it sounds much more fired up and exciting, more in command of whatever it is trying to say. Of course it might tail off over the record, but I'm going to guess these guys work their underpaid minions' fingers to the bone so that it doesn't. Not much of a man of Drake's thing but feels like he 'won' this round. Fuck am I saying?
Quote from: sevendaughters on August 31, 2021, 12:46:37 PMI've just gone back to the article that made me take seriously the idea of taking Kanye seriously, and it's still very good, and what is more it was written by Lou Reed:https://www.talkhouse.com/lou-reed-of-the-velvet-underground-talks-kanye-wests-yeezus/
Quote from: famethrowa on September 05, 2021, 06:43:14 AMI've always suspected that Lou was a rather stupid, dull person, the archetype of hiding your brainlessness behind being arch and prickly. Seems I was right. Kanye could blindfold himself and cut and drag seven different song clips into his workspace, call it a song and Lou would be like "what a genius"
