Let me say this, Snoop's 2 latest albums has been a fucking joke.
Dre probably didn't want to make people draw conclusions that Soulja Boy, The-Dream or some shit will appear on Detox.

It's more of a statement of intent, having the greatest rapper of all time on your first single..
I didn't see anybody bitching when Still D.R.E., written by S. Carter dropped.. or when Jay-Z murked "The Watcher 2"..

Post by: Okka on April 04, 2010, 06:09:34 PM
I thought this was known a few weeks ago that Jay is on the first single, there's a reason for it too and if y'all don't know it then fuck it. Snoop Dogg is still a big name of course and he probably always will be but the last two albums he put out flopped and people ain't buyin' his shit these days but Jay-Z still sellin', why y'all think that he is on the "I Wanna Rock" remix? There's only one reason for it. Almost everything Dre and Jay have worked together on has been good so i'm exceptin' this to to be too.

i mean yea who else combines quality and marketability like Jay? Putting him on the lead single was a no-brainer... for both this album and 2001.

It would be nice if Dre puts his west coast pals all over the album... but I'm very worried that the list of guest rappers is gonna be something like : nas, ti, lil wayne, drake, snoop, game. but if that's the case..... then oh well. what are you gonna do.

i love the snoop hate on this board. At his peak, he was one of the best to ever do it. How many of y'all favourite rappers even come close to making a dogystyle?

And dre and snoop combo is still the best combo in hiphop. Aint nobody taken over that mantle yet.


However i am excited for this, its about time we get some detox music and while its bullshit imo about jay-z being the greatest of all time. Aint no way dude is touching pac and its debatable whether pac is greatest of all time but jigga is sick, ainy no denying that on his day. And he did write dres verses on still dre, so no complaints. However one of the best things about still dre was also the hook...which snoop was on...

We'll see...title definately fits lol...under pressure the nigga sure is! and i cant see him and jigga topping what dre and snoop did with still dre but lets give it a chance! Dre still that nigga

just drop some music!

Not the same. Snoop puts out albums all the time and the consistency just isn't there. People know Dre takes forever to make records and there is such a hype around this album that you'll have people who never buy albums anymore checking this one out. I could care about who is on the first single as long as when I hear it, it makes me want to buy the album. Simple as that.

I find it really funny how Dr. Dre is never comfortable in front of a camera, you can almost feel his heart is beating faster when he has to answer a question...isn't it shocking to see a legend his age being nervous?
Perhaps the ultimate proof he's human like us  ;)

As far as Dre's solo albums go and most of the albums he produced/exec. produced, he has never dissapointed. I really do hope we won't be dissapointed this time.

Well, to be perfect honestly, "Still DRE" didn't compare to the Chronic singles when I first heard it but that album is still a classic. I'm looking for something great. I'm done with the comparing. I just want something that can hold its own with Dre's previous albums. Not better, not worse.

you think Dre uses the Queen sample for the hook or something?

for some reason with Jay-Z, i can see that happening lol.

honestly, even though this album is a hundred years in the making, my expectations for this single are not high at all; i just have that feeling it's going to be average as fuck; i'm just counting that the production will be bangin'.

i'm waiting to hear that Dre/Eminem collab.

I couldn't help but think of Bowie/Queen when I read the name but I hope it's more about Dre addressing the pressure with trying to live up to the expectations behind the most anticipated album of the last 10 years.

Am I the only 1 who thinks (after seeing that video) that they weren't even serious about that single. Like Iovine is laughing & Dre seems like he's uncomfortable with the idea that someone mentions his new song. Like "oh shyt Jimmy now I really gotta drop something because you said that or ppl are gonna be really really dissapointed"

that would be dope, but i don't see where Jay-Z comes into play because he is under no pressure.

i'm just upset that Jay is on the single lol; nothing against Jay, i like Jay, but it's just "really brah"?

without a doubt Dre's last album & the first single is with Jay-Z? i guess Dre is looking to move serious units; i just hope Wayne & Drake don't find a slot on Detox. :-X

Eminem, Snoop Dogg or Ice Cube should of made the first single, just for homage reasons.
Title: Re: Dr. Dre's Single Is Called Under Pressure Ft Jay Z
Post by: Action! on April 04, 2010, 07:01:21 PM
Unlike most of you, I don't view the album as ten years in the making as if he's been working diligently ten years on the one project.  I view it as numerous recording sessions that were at one time Detox's yet he decided it wasn't what he wanted so he sold them off or just left them in the vault.  I don't have a problem with that.  I assume he's been recording from the past year or so with the expectation of releasing an album.

Another problem is I have with people anticipating Detox is that people act like Dre's been talking about it.  He's rarely spoken about it in the past ten years besides some interviews post-2001 and the first promo run that fell flat.  Then it was brought up by Aftermath artists but not Dre besides on the one Game track - "Look out for Detox."  

If anything it's you all who's acting a little crazy for Detox.  I mean I can understand setting high expectations if Dre's been like "DETOX! COP IT WHEN IT DROPS!  DETOX! RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER! DETOX!" for the past ten years but he hasn't been.

I was listening to The Wash soundtrack the other day, and man do Dre and Snoop have chemistry. Call Snoop whatever you wanna, him and Dre together is like no other. When ppl think Dre, they think Snoop, westcoast, game, Eminem, and 50 not Jay. I am not a Jay fan so this announcement and speculation has been a bit dissapointing, with that being said however, Detox is so over due that I'm excited to know that a formal announcement has been made, albeit nothing different that Dres MTV announcement "Detox, it's coming", this time it feels right. If it's not the lead single, just a promotional track to get the ball rolling then thats dope too.

On a side note, Dre's needs some PA skills man, he looked more at the microphone than anything else. Lmao@ at his ghetto response as to why she should buy the headphones.

Detox 2011! Its coming!

i hope its some energetic dre tip joint. we'll see what sound dre has got for detox too...especially as if rumours previously said are true it wont be a big album so the sound will be consistant and ofcourse he needs a fresh sound for it too...

so we'll get to hear what sorta sound he is with when it drops...also i hope its hype...not some dry up shit like they did mostly on kingdom come (i heard they never even were in the studio together for that album?...maybe i read it wrong, it was a long time ago) but regardless, yeh...i hope dre gets some crazy jay on some dirt off ya shoulders vibe rather spittin with hype and the beats some futuristic shit lol...ahaha i feel sorry for dre..under pressure really is a title fitting...i wouldnt be suprised if the title has a twist to it though in the context of the joint...

i just want to hear it now!

lol at you claiming anyone who dislikes his new music to be fans of the old snoop dogg...some people just dont like him...and just hate...yes hate...no real critics, just hate...others do have reasons which are valid...

200 identical verses? yet jiggaz always spitting new stuff like his shit aint played out no more? or eminems not been saying the same weird shit on his albums for the last i dunno how many years now...yes snoops last album was wack, i aint denying that but he tried to branch out differently in his last two albums..so his shit has actually been different...he failed...yes i admit

and yes HE WAS one of the best..he aint of that level anymore but to this day, dre and him have not failed...eminem during his peak WAS one of the best but y'all white kids would be bumpin off walls if y'all heard he was on the first single...

If you can't understand why people are negative/skeptical about Snoop Dogg in 2010, then you should take a look at your own posts.. "he failed", "last album was wack", "at his peak, he WAS one of the best", etc.

I'm also happy that Em is not on the first single, cuz a Dre-single shouldn't be about anal sex, incest or dissing pop-stars.
Dre better execute one hell of a quality control/censorship on Em & Snoop's verses on Detox.

Well according to Tanner G. Dre actually has a white guy in the studio who's paid to do that exactly, LOL. Despite how absurd and terrible Eminem's worst verses were on Relapse, his best ones were incredible, so I have faith that he can put heat on Detox. I'm sure that Snoop can too if he focuses, so I'm not worried about them.

I'm really just hoping Ice Cube gets a verse on Detox. And that Game gets between 1-3 at most, cuz hes just not as talented as the other potential collaborators.

Some cats on here mad at HIM for bishop not blowing up! lol@anything other than praise i consider hating on snoop....talk about reaching  ::) i expected better off you jome, especially since you've been around nearly as long as me and i thought u was past the days of being on a childish tip/gunit groupie tip. Stop speaking bullshit and try understanding. Since when have i considered anything other than unanimous praise for snoop hating? I was one who was critical of his effort on BCT and admit his last album is wack so when people say negative stuff about it, i don't argue. So that accusation falls flat straight away.  Dre and snoops record is still amazing so its only natural for someone who is a huge fan of the duo to want them together on a track. Its simple to understand. Maybe when you so occupied loving everything jay-z has to drop, its hard to understand since according to you he is the greatest of all time lol. Snoop would still be on his westcoast/gangsta tip that dre and snoop fans have enjoyed for years...with eminem i dont think he would do the incest shit on a dre joint but you never know so its definately not something i would want to see straight away and i already said, while i would have preffered snoop on the first joint just for reasons which would make sense to most dre/snoop fans/westcoast fans, i still look forward to the jay-z joint! Dre and snoop usually get the best out of each other, so im not too worried about them joints. im hoping eminem can recreate some of the heat they did on 2001 though because if relapse and encore are anything to go by...eminem def needs censorsjip control...snoop still aint failed with dre

^could be.

anyway, like The Watcher just said, it truly doesn't matter who features on it because those features will give their best featured verse ever.

i can understand being skeptical about Eminem's verse, but you know Dre will NOT allow some silly, unfocused verse on his album & Eminem only seems to clown around on his own shit; i can't think of once instance he ruined a song on a feature besides T.I.'s "Touchdown". :P

why is everyone worried about the guest features on detox?

anyone who's featured is going to be bringing their AAAA+ game

dre knows what this album is, he wont feature any wack shit. people need to have faith.

This i agree with, that dre will get as much as he believes is possible to get out of these cats and these cats will push harder than usual when they working on detox...maybe too hard/too functional at times just to sound correct but we'll hear some serious drops imo on detox! I hope so! IF THE ALBUM EVER DROPS  ;D

true but since jimmy said its dres new single...i assume its designed with detox in mind because dre doesnt have any other project coming out...

So if its big, im willing to bet its a detox joint...if it falls flat...lol who knows...but with the push it could potentially create with someone as big as jayz on it plus dre...just off name and backing it could potentially be huge and if its actually bangin, then it could potentially be a problem! then it'll def be called out for detox...maybe they dont want to associate detox with it right now until they get a response...jus incase its negative and they dont want to kill hype for detox..

You're right, but it's not that I'm worried, it's just weird to see these guys dropping commercial bullshit with retarded lyrics, totally switch up when they're recording for a Dre-album.  :D

when she asks him why she should get some and he says someshit like 'like i just said, i guarentee you won't be mad at them' lol  ;D

Nigga def belongs in the studio and you can tell he been in the studio with alot of dumb young muthafuckers recently with how he was talking lol...

I haven't heard anyone say this is for detox either.  Depending on how well it's received, they could use it on a soundtrack, a Blueprint 3.5, or a digital single for the headphones.

Also, if I'm not mistaken, "The Difference" was the first leak from 2001

LOL, that bitch was one DUMB motherfucker.

Dre is standing there, rocking a Redsox jersey, holding a pair of Redsox edition Dre headphones & she seriously asks him who he's rooting for lol.

then Dre explains why his headphones are the best on the planet & then this bitch's next question is, "so why should i buy a pair of these headphones".

http://slumz.boxden.com/f87/dr-dres-single-called-under-pressure-ft-jay-z-1358493/






and let me say this, Snoop Dogg not being on the first single? what a fucking joke


Snoop isn't hot anymore

and let me say this, Snoop Dogg not being on the first single? what a fucking joke

Let me say this, Snoop's 2 latest albums has been a fucking joke.
Dre probably didn't want to make people draw conclusions that Soulja Boy, The-Dream or some shit will appear on Detox.

It's more of a statement of intent, having the greatest rapper of all time on your first single..
I didn't see anybody bitching when Still D.R.E., written by S. Carter dropped.. or when Jay-Z murked "The Watcher 2"..


stop it Jome, you're making yourself look like a fool


Unlike most of you, I don't view the album as ten years in the making as if he's been working diligently ten years on the one project.  I view it as numerous recording sessions that were at one time Detox's yet he decided it wasn't what he wanted so he sold them off or just left them in the vault.  I don't have a problem with that.  I assume he's been recording from the past year or so with the expectation of releasing an album.

Another problem is I have with people anticipating Detox is that people act like Dre's been talking about it.  He's rarely spoken about it in the past ten years besides some interviews post-2001 and the first promo run that fell flat.  Then it was brought up by Aftermath artists but not Dre besides on the one Game track - "Look out for Detox." 

If anything it's you all who's acting a little crazy for Detox.  I mean I can understand setting high expectations if Dre's been like "DETOX! COP IT WHEN IT DROPS!  DETOX! RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER! DETOX!" for the past ten years but he hasn't been.
that's not true, check my signature.
and the reason he let other people talk for him, is because he doesn't like doing interviews

"Brand new single"

I wouldn't get my hopes up about this being from Detox. Maybe if it's crazy successful. But they're probably looking at some iTunes sales, promote the headphones, maybe put it on Jay's re-release.

A collabo with Jay makes sense, since their both in a similar space right; older and trying to remind everyone why they have this position in the game in the first game (practically the theme for Bluperint 3).

you retarded, brah?

i said, Snoop should be on it (or Eminem or Ice Cube) for homage reasons.

yeah, Jay & Dre have worked together in the past, but they don't have that connection that Dre & the three i mentioned do.

not that Dre "needs" anybody for his single, but if he had to have someone, i just wish it was one of them; not even to make the song better, just because it would be a "blast from the past". :P

Oh nigga please! fuck your ''homage reason''. This is a moment when Dre has to surprise people, he never had any single with Jay. Besides, Jay wrote his biggest single and has the best selling rap album out right now.

It's the best choice Dre could possibly make.

Am I the only 1 who thinks (after seeing that video) that they weren't even serious about that single. Like Iovine is laughing & Dre seems like he's uncomfortable with the idea that someone mentions his new song. Like "oh shyt Jimmy now I really gotta drop something because you said that or ppl are gonna be really really dissapointed"

no you're not. they were obviously clowning. can't believe how blind poeple are on this forum. no offence to anybody though... just wake up people...detox is still the same myth as it was before april...we ain't heard a fucking single note from this album yet...

it wasn't him who started this joke... i don;t hate him for that. i'd do exactly the same probably if i was in his position. shit is funny as fuck to see how naive people are. some random guys can write on their twitter page they've heard a detox song and the whole world is getting hyped as fuck.
i'm sure Dre wet himself laughing while reading threads about his mysterious single...

To be honest, its got to the point with Detox where I don't really care who's featured on it, I just want to hear some damn music.  
I mean don't get me wrong, I'd love to hear a single with Snoop, Game, Eminem, Kurupt or Xzibit etc (and I'm sure they will be on the album) but at this point in time I just want to listen to whatever the hell they've been cooking up in the Aftermath studios, be it with Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Drake whatever.  At least then we can actually judge instead of throwing around half-assed opinions and speculating for the millionth time who and who's not featured on it.
I'm looking forward Under Pressure whenever its released, and I'm sure it will be good, maybe not on the level of Still DRE, but good nonetheless.

So let's sum up another brilliant DubCC thread:


I'm telling you, Detox is bad for the Westcoast -- it's making all of our brains turn to shiit. :)

If there is a song called Under Pressure, it could just be a one-off song released to the public like Keep Their Heads Rining, Cali Love, etc.

it's not even bad for Hip Hop, let alone a coast.

music seems to be doing fine without it; guys on the radio are moving units.
