Next saga is not a new album for me. Maybe some new business concept or new artist deal. More likely we just gonna get new Snoop DEF JAM project i November and that's it. No Dre, no Kendrick, no Mt.Westmore.

I’m tired of the Satanic rituals like the one that doomed my Kansas City Chiefs in the last Superbowl or Madonnas 2019 Eurovision, or UK Bojo Olympic Ceremony.

I was just praying for something that wasn’t Satanic this year and now I wake up to news that Dr. Dre is headlining and bringing his team with him this is great fuccing news!!

I don't see any bad intention or subliminal diss with that comment. He used the riding shotgun analogy to demonstrate his role when it comes to Dre, and then mentioned the other performers that are part of the show as well. It's just a figure of speech and the others guys need to sit somewhere in the imaginary car Snoop is talking about.

hyping up a show this far in advance doesn't make all that much sense. plenty of time for dre to cancel any plans of a musical release (it was meant to be late 2021 remember) or go in another direction. if the music was coming it would come without all the fanfare or need for a performance.

i thought this was something to be excited about but really it's not. no sign that any new music is ever coming. sure the show will be great.

I disagree with you here Matty, I see several cues and pointers, that there will be both new music and new album(s) following the SB or maybe even preceding the SB..

* When announcing a big show like this, and setting the expectation this high for a specific date, it makes it 100 times harder to cancel or push back an album, or maybe even several albums from the various artists included in the lineup.
* When doing a show this big, in front of 100's of millions viewers worldwide, it is the biggest album promo/advert you could possibly have. Not taking momentum of an event this big, would be the biggest PR-flop in history. It seems like they're putting some pressure on themselves by announcing this, which gives them a very specific time scale.
* With this gigantic platform, it would be utter silliness and tomfoolery to ride on previous hits. A medley of Next Episode, Still D.R.E., Forgot about Dre, My Name Is.. Nobody would raise an eyebrow if they perform old stuff, Dre is talking about "Breaking barriers" and "Blow peoples minds", Snoop is talking about "Being in the passenger seat, riding shotgun, with Em and Kendrick in support". It all seems like they're talking about something new and exciting with Dre as the main architect and protagonist, not performing the past hits of yesteryear. Dre wrote: "This will introduce the next saga of my career" - can't possibly be talking old music, no?
* It also seems like they're quite careful not to reveal too much, minds are not gonna be blown if everybody knows what's coming, it seems like they're choosing their words wisely. Also interesting how they talked a bit about Jay Z. Maybe he's involved somehow, or maybe he just gets props for breaking down the SB doors with his performance with Alicia Keys some years back.
* I've been one of the biggest skeptics about all those studio pictures in the last couple of years... but after Dre's divorce, it really seems like he's stepped up the studio work, and hopefully really got his mojo back. Working with all those legends for nothing, would be one helluva waste. Even though I like Compton personally, it was no 2001, and Dre's hopefully aiming to silence the critics.

Using the Super Bowl as a promotional tool is the ultimate launching pad for musical projects - it's the most-watched event in the country. Companies pay millions of dollars for 30-second commercials. They've got 12 whole minutes. The only reason Dre and the gang would do this is to get everyone up to speed and in tune for what's coming next. Anything else doesn't make any sense. Last time this happened was with the NWA movie and he rode the wave and dropped an album. Plus, with Snoop's new major deal with Def Jam and Kendrick's next project in the wings, this is the move. I hope they capitalize on this in a major way because it doesn't get any better.

they even had Detox edition headphones which came out, presumably with the font from the album cover and everything. shit was literally cancelled last minute. this is what i'm saying any sort of lead-up to something only increases the odds it could be pulled or at least the new stuff gets canned. the performance is likely a collection of old hits with some super hologram or some other gimmick that impresses the average joe, gets Dre some media buzz while he decides whether to release or not release any new music (likely the latter).

best we don't talk about Compton though having it attached to another project seemed to take the pressure off and it actually came out, even if it wasn't that great. they even said it was Dre's 'grand finale' but i don't think anyone was fooled. that was no follow up to 2001 and besides Paak nobody new featured on it went anywhere.

i see all the same things and on the surface yes, absolutely. just playing devils advocate here because we've seen this sort of thing before in the lead up to something that never went anywhere. the encouraging thing is Dre putting himself in the spotlight for whatever reason, we'll see if it has anything to do with releasing new music.

I think Dre just waited for a great opportunity to promote his new shit. Snoop already said that Dre likes to do things in a big way, or he doesn't care.

And it was Snoop's idea to do this show. He mentioned the idea half a year ago. So, maybe Dre finished his new project during this summer and after being okay with it, he organized this performance.

And even if dre shelves his album again, there still could be other projects. There have been rumors of movies and a tv show made by dre. Maybe he'll finally launch those. He did call it the "next saga" in his career.

Surprised nobody has mentioned Coachella yet.  Because if you want some sort of barometer for what is about to happen Coachella is it.  So going off Coachella you can already predict what gone happen...

—Get one new song maybe even new artist banger like when Kendrick came out and did that Cali weed, women, weather joint

—they’ll do a classic or two like “G Thang” or “Forgot About Dre” maybe even “I need a doctor”. 

—Eminem will definitely do “Lose Yourself”.  That’s his magnum opus and goes great with the moment, football and NFL

—Dre will cook up some cool soundscapes for like interludes and transitions of songs will be epic and vintage Dre production

—Some great visuals like how Dre hooked up the Source Awards death row or hooked up Snoops Murder was the Case stage performance

—Mary J will definitely do “Family Affair”

—then there is gonna be the big surprise moment.  Like the 2pac hologram, but maybe instead of with Snoop it will be “California Love” with Dre or more likely something all together different

—surprise appearance like cameo from 50 doing in the Club

... but the big question is this...

—-  What will be the big surprise?  What will be the 2pac hologram moment?  Will it be a new song?  An Instant classic?  A new visual never been done before like technology?  That’s the big question

He was ready more than ever. It had to be last minute because he even recorded a promo tie in with the Mafia Wars mobile game and straight up said "Play Mafia Wars for a shot to listen to the new Detox album and a signed pair of Beats headphones and hear what you been missing"

Why not? Dre can play all his hits, and for the last  song the new one.

I kind of agree with this.. in fact the new shit could be just like some fucking interlude or transition between the classics, or as you said a finale...

1. Start:  Snoop will intro it with some crazy new Dre beat and visualz in the background and he will say some shit like.. "Oh no, they let the gangstaz up in here for the Superbowl" and ride in on a lowrider or some shit to do G- Thang....

2.  Crazy interlude and then shit goes silent and Em comes in and does "Lose Yourself"

3.  Crazy interlude again and Dre does some throwback NWA fucc the police shit with Kendrick doing "King Kunta" and Ice Cube coming on or some shit like that for "St8 out of Compton" or "Fucc the Police" and shit gets political for a moment

4.  This is the big moment where Dre is going to do some suprise.  This is where he might use some new technology to do "California Love" with like a Pac hologram or some new shit we never seen before.  This is the big moment

5.  Mary comes on and they all join the stage and ride out with a feel good "Family Affair"

6.  Some Krazy ass outro with some new next generation sound just to wet the appetite and hype whatever Dre's current or next venture is

i think em, snoop, kendrik and dre will release their albums till february...

first snoop and dre will show up with next episode...

then snoop will go on with some of his new banger from algorithm.

then snoop will introduce his nephew eminem on the stage and eminem will show up

snoop leaves, eminem comes with lose yourself, then his new single from new album.

and kendrick comes with an old famous hit of his and new banger from his new album.

here comes mary j blige with family affair and then she will introduce dr. dre and snoop dogg on stage.

dr. dre, snoop and mary j blige will rock the show with the new highly anticipated chronic 3 shit!

then one more chronic 3 joint.

and everybody will be blown away.

i will dream about this kind of shit till february. if they just go on stage and sing old songs like california love, still dre next episode and forget about dre and say goodbye with hey superbowl thank you for coming!!... then i will burn all my dr. dre cd's and vinlys...

Yeah until the ‘cancel culture’ bandwagon gears up and chastises the NFL for promoting rappers who in the past glorified:

Raping young girls (Just Don’t Bite It)
Violence towards women (Dre)
Homophobic songs (Eminem)
Songs disrespecting women, promoting drug culture, cop killing, using the N word, etc.

The NFL has canceled people for much less. I’m surprised there hasn’t already been an uproar from the snowflakes over this. Especially with the NFL trying so annoyingly hard to be PC and the spotlight on them more than ever that they’d make this decision. Instead of having someone like Common on there representing Hip Hop in a positive light.

Raping young girls (Just Don’t Bite It)
Violence towards women (Dre)
Homophobic songs (Eminem)
Songs disrespecting women, promoting drug culture, cop killing, using the N word, etc.

The NFL has canceled people for much less. I’m surprised there hasn’t already been an uproar from the snowflakes over this. Especially with the NFL trying so annoyingly hard to be PC and the spotlight on them more than ever that they’d make this decision. Instead of having someone like Common on there representing Hip Hop in a positive light.

Ummm... doesn't look like any of that is happening soooo... I guess it's a non-issue, which is good news for you. Moving on... Gonna be a great show  8)

P.S. Not seeing how Just Dont Bite It is a rape song... sounds pretty consensual to me.

I don’t remember this promo but it is crazy to think how close we were to getting it and fuccin sucks he pulled the plug.  What told me he was close was two major music videos and singles released “Kush” and “I Need a doctor” actually did really well

I found it just recently on yt too. I wonder what was the reason he pulled it the last second. Everything was ready to go. Even Kush and I need a Doctor were very well received, then nothing. Sometimes I wish we ended up getting Detox then, because I fucc heavy with Kush. I've always been a proponent of Dre should just drop his old finished tracks he keeps in the vault but doesn't intend to use on an album on Spotify and call it a day. Yeah, he's a big perfectionist, but I don't think it would hurt him if he did it.

My theory is that he's hoarding all those tracks for generational wealth and will allow his kids to take over when he's gone to keep the legacy alive. I mean, those songs are worth a fuck-ton of money - and Dr Dre tracks are scarce... and in high demand. I could be totally wrong obviously, but I think this might be a calculated move.

That's a very reasonable theory. I guess we'll see what happens. From fan stand point it's sad to see many masterpieces locked away never to be heard, but at the same time Dre is smart if his plan is as you described. A bit like stashing gold bars away, will always be worth something and in demand.

Of course my dream is that Eminem goes on stage and does some unexpected anti-vaxx, anti-mask, anti-lockdown shit.. but I know that will never happen... more than likely Cube will come on with Dre and they will do some fucc the police type of political shit that the media will adore them for and applaud them for being so bold (when all they are doing is promoting the prevailing narrative that gets celebrated every day on mainstream media)

but Dre is better than that.. whatever he comes up with will be innovative and trendsetting... so I'm not going to complain

Not sure how that works economically.  The new market still doesn't make sense to me.  If it were the 90's I would agree.. it's just like if you were holding unreleased Pac material in the 90's you were sitting on gold...

but with everything bootlegged and released on MP3 and people getting music for free, I don't see how unreleased Dre material is really that valuable.

i think em, snoop, kendrik and dre will release their albums till february...

first snoop and dre will show up with next episode...

then snoop will go on with some of his new banger from algorithm.

then snoop will introduce his nephew eminem on the stage and eminem will show up

snoop leaves, eminem comes with lose yourself, then his new single from new album.

and kendrick comes with an old famous hit of his and new banger from his new album.

here comes mary j blige with family affair and then she will introduce dr. dre and snoop dogg on stage.

dr. dre, snoop and mary j blige will rock the show with the new highly anticipated chronic 3 shit!

then one more chronic 3 joint.

and everybody will be blown away.

i will dream about this kind of shit till february. if they just go on stage and sing old songs like california love, still dre next episode and forget about dre and say goodbye with hey superbowl thank you for coming!!... then i will burn all my dr. dre cd's and vinlys...


u expectin too much

like someone else said, i don’t think anyone has ever introduced a new song at super bowl halftime

but there could def be an announcement or something that will promote the upcoming projects

that in itself would be more than enough imo

You do know that there is a very large demographic - like ~75 million people - that does not celebrate anti-police rhetoric, right? Probably like 2-3 quarters of the people watching the super bowl. And Fox News is the most-watched station in the country - they're not celebrating that at all and that's as mainstream as it gets. That being said, I think the chances of Dre and the gang doing "Fuck Tha Police" or anything near that are pretty low.

Also, I think - just maybe - people like Eminem have been educated or have privileged access to people who are when it comes to topics like virology, biochemistry, epidemiology, biology, and the alike. The correlation between education and vaccine rates is not a coincidence. It's alright to respect people as people, but a fucking truck driver doesn't have an opinion that's remotely valid when it comes to science. If someone is not medically trained on this subject matter, their opinion is not equal to others who are. There's a reason why it takes ~15 years to become a doctor. There's also a reason why most people aren't doctors.

Anyway, whatever they do should most likely be awesome.

It kills me that all that gold is sitting a vault, yeah. I almost feel like he owes it to the people who lived through that era to release it. But honestly, I can't knock him for it if that's his angle. He knows his worth and his demand. Why not exploit that and fuse it into your legacy? Makes sense. But I hear you - as a fan, it sucks. I'd LOVE to hear what he's got from the 90s and early 2000s. MAN. Timeless classics.

I'm not fussed about the halftime show, but I will keep a watch out in case there is an announcement of new music from Dre, Eminem or Kendrick in the lead up to the event or in the aftermath, pun intended.

We can live in hope that Dre might drop this rumoured album soon then, especially with him saying that he's excited for what the future holds in that clip with Snoop Dogg.

So you are a Dre fan and Dre is going to be performing his biggest event in history and you ain't even gonna watch?  Just interested in some "announcement"?

...I will tell you guys now he's not gonna make any announcement during the show.  His focus is only going to be on making the bombest show he can possibly make.  You may get some new sounds or visuals that will indicate some new trend he wants to set off in music or something on a project he's doing but that's it.

Not like he's gonna say at the end, "Look out for my next album, it's coming"... and even if he did it wouldn't matter cause he'd probably still not drop it anyway

I’m not from America and the whole Super Bowl event is not such a big deal outside of the USA, so I
won’t be tuning in live, but of course, being a fan of Dr. Dre and the rest I’ll most likely watch some highlights of the show.

And by announcement, I meant that new music from each artist might drop shortly before, or more likely, after the performance. That’s what I’m more excited about compared to a 10-minute compilation of past hits
performed in front of a family crowd.

I’m fully aware that Dre is not gonna make a big announcement live on stage
about his possibly forthcoming album.

I agree, you guys are setting yourselves up for disappointment.  As Dre said in the interview, they have 11-12 minutes to highlight 5 artists.  You're talking roughly 2 minutes per person.  Each artist is going to do a 3 or 4 hit song melody of about 30 seconds per song and that's it.  It'll be fun and great to see.  But anyone thinking they are going to perform new songs with that short amount of time available are nuts.

My .02:

- This is a huge honor for these artists .  Just being there to perform might be enough

- On the other hand, this will be broadcast to a HUGE audience.  Dr. Dre probably doesn't want to waste that opportunity.  Having new music available around the release date is a no-brainer.  The music should be available before the performance so after the show when everyone goes to Spotify (or whatever) they'll see new music from the artists.

- I'm sure the NFL and NBC have to sign off on the performance to a certain extent.  So I'm not expecting anything too controversial.

- Whatever they do performance wise, has to be able to be set up and taken apart quickly so It can't be too elaborate of a setup.

- A live performance isn't a great way to introduce new music.  It never sounds that good.

- A live band would be cool (fredwreck, Scott Storch, focus etc)
 
- Hopefully Mary doesn't do what Janet Jackson did and have a 'wardrobe malfunction'  :P

Ummmmm...ok. Let's try another example: Engineering. If 97% of engineers agree that a bridge is unsafe to drive over and 3% think it is safe, how many people do you suppose would be comfortable driving over the bridge? Moreover, how many of those people do you think could be convinced by someone who is not an engineer that there is a mass conspiracy going on designed to prevent them from driving over the bridge? I think you can see where I'm going with this. How do you suppose safety and building codes are calculated? If you take a little time to find the answers to these and other simple mathematical problems, you'll see that things makes sense (don't know if you went to college, what you majored in, or what you do for a living, but I promise you it's really simple; that being said, I'm pretty sure you don't have a STEM background). Also, cults are by definition a minority - not a majority - so to call a greater portion of a population that agrees on a particular idea a cult is a misnomer.

On the topic of "experts": The whole reason society prospers is because of specialization, which builds trust in those respective areas and allows for a collective benefit from individual expertise. If that is eroded, then expertise will no longer serve the public interest. Just how social media enabled people with absolutely no talent to become famous, abandoning actual expertise will usher in people with no real knowledge or training in any particular area to influence increasingly larger groups of people who are equally as ignorant.

Additionally.... the vast majority of scientists don't have "billion-dollar" anything, let alone marketing - I think you're conflating research with public relations firms. The details matter. Unlike most people, scientists can actually thrive on being wrong. That might seem weird to you but some of the biggest breakthroughs have stemmed from error that was corrected for. Leaning on ideas to test efficacy is how we advance, not clinging onto unfounded bullshit based on what someone pulled out of their asshole just to protect fragile egos. FYI.

People with Google, Wikipedia, and blogs with no actual achievement in any particular area want their opinions treated with such deep respect - not on the basis of evidence or real credentials, but based on their feelings, emotions, and whatever stray information they may have picked up along the way. That's a big fucking problem.

 

Also, sorry to everyone else in this thread for going WAY off topic here, but this one was just too juicy to let go  ;D

Back to Dr. Dre!!

^^ so in your opinion is it more important to be fit and healthy or to keep injecting serums into your body every time it encounters adversity? I would also ask this question to an "expert" for what its worth as well, before you reply with that angle. Also what are the experts saying when it comes to all-you-can eat buffets since 95% people who are dying from covid are overweight? Yet to here from the experts on that one.

Also what are the experts saying when it comes to all-you-can eat buffets since 95% people who are dying from covid are overweight? Yet to here from the experts on that one.

Sorry, what is a serum? I suggest maybe brushing up on your high school biology - and if you're interested in how molecular/cell biology works when it comes to things like proteins, mRNA, DNA, basic organelle function, transcription, cell cycles, etc. - then an understanding of the function, purpose and process of vaccines will follow quite easily. That should resolve a lot of the confusion.

Also, if we're going down the road of statistics, it would be helpful cite your source. It's good to know where you're getting your numerical data from. Although I can tell you right now that the use of p-values and normal distributions that have anything to do with that number you used are definitely way off. 95% of >700,000 is clearly incorrect. Of course, some familiarity with statistics is necessary but really, just basic reading of credible sources and you can get away with knowing practically nothing about how stats work. 

If you're looking for way to hear from experts, I'd suggest subscribing to accredited scientific journals and nonpartisan fact tanks (for empirical social science topics of research) like PEW Research Center. Reading is largely unpopular outside academia so kudos to you if you actually follow through here and decide to open yourself up to that kind of information.

Finally - without disclosing too much publicly on this forum - I have a STEM background. Do you?

^^ you talk the talk but didn't answer any of my questions I brought up. Too busy trying to talk down to people, all high and mighty huh. So I will ask you again. Should we take serums every time our bodies face adversity? PS: Serum is Latin for fluid, used in the medical sense meaning injections, just so you know, but with you having an STEM background you obviously do.

Its a simple question for you to answer? What are the experts saying when it comes to the link between general good health and and the less implication of covid? Its common knowledge worldwide that the two underlying causes of death from covid are obesity and diabetes, which the experts you mention all agree on by the way. Its up to you to to find the information not for me to relay it to you lol, research it yourself stop been lazy.

Contrary to popular belief you don't need to be an expert on anything to have an opinion, this is a dangerous narrative by the way on many subjects not just covid, why are you implying you cant have an opinion unless you are an expert? That's a retarded way to look at anything in life. Just imagine if you couldn't speak on anything unless you were an expert, imagine if we couldn't question the military because we were not in the army for example. Imagine if we couldn't question the police because we have never been a policeman.

I kind of agree with this.. in fact the new shit could be just like some fucking interlude or transition between the classics, or as you said a finale...

1. Start:  Snoop will intro it with some crazy new Dre beat and visualz in the background and he will say some shit like.. "Oh no, they let the gangstaz up in here for the Superbowl" and ride in on a lowrider or some shit to do G- Thang....

2.  Crazy interlude and then shit goes silent and Em comes in and does "Lose Yourself"

3.  Crazy interlude again and Dre does some throwback NWA fucc the police shit with Kendrick doing "King Kunta" and Ice Cube coming on or some shit like that for "St8 out of Compton" or "Fucc the Police" and shit gets political for a moment

4.  This is the big moment where Dre is going to do some suprise.  This is where he might use some new technology to do "California Love" with like a Pac hologram or some new shit we never seen before.  This is the big moment

5.  Mary comes on and they all join the stage and ride out with a feel good "Family Affair"

6.  Some Krazy ass outro with some new next generation sound just to wet the appetite and hype whatever Dre's current or next venture is

Forget about dre last of the hits, and then the new one.

Welp, that went nowhere fast  ;D

What else can we do on a forum besides talk?

I'm speaking from a place of a bit more depth, which you seem to be missing or otherwise overlooking judging from the way you're reading what I've written. Based on your "high and mighty" comments, I suspect that's rooted mostly in insecurity rather than any genuine conviction. I think I've addressed you quite well and don't really have the desire to hand-hold with regard to never-ending explanations. We're past the high school lunch table.

The "dangerous narrative" is actually the inverse of what you said: it's the opinions of people who are unqualified that gain traction with and influence over people who are scientifically illiterate - that's the danger. But in case it wasn't clear enough for you: You can have an opinion about anything. I don't think that's contrary to popular belief at all. I was being a little more specific than that. The metric of how opinions are weighed based on professional and academic background is what's important - not simply the fact that someone has an opinion. For example, I could ask you for your opinion on the quantum mechanical properties of electron spin. But how much is that worth coming from a sports nutritionist? Nothing. So while you're free to have an opinion about it, it's not anything useful that will help with the understanding of how to solve physics problems. Do you see my point now?

Again, I refer you to the aforementioned sources surrounding your covid questions and statistics - and for good reason. Hearing it from me isn't going to move things along, it's just going to be another talking point for you to argue with. Plus, no one's giving you a free education on a rap music forum about biochemistry or virology. That's what Khan Academy is for. Instead, subscribe to some journals and research centers (and maybe Khan Academy?) - it'll clear everything right up you - promise. Super easy - assuming this sort of thing really interests you and you're not just trying to win an argument.



Ok everyone, I'm satisfied now. Sorry again for the off topic rant - I'm dropping my mic and exiting stage left.

Mostly agree with this.

Having the halftime show is a HUGE reach in terms of fan base, publicity, and promotion. It's hard to beat. So many eyeballs will be on them it's ridiculous.

I'm thinking they might do something similar to Up In Smoke? Maybe a sketch or two leading into or between songs? One thing's for sure, they're not short on creative talent so whatever they've got up their sleeves should be good - at least that's the expectation judging from past performances.

Can you imagine Mary J having a wardrobe malfunction? Hahaha. No wrinkled nip slips please.

I agree, you guys are setting yourselves up for disappointment.  As Dre said in the interview, they have 11-12 minutes to highlight 5 artists.  You're talking roughly 2 minutes per person.  Each artist is going to do a 3 or 4 hit song melody of about 30 seconds per song and that's it.  It'll be fun and great to see.  But anyone thinking they are going to perform new songs with that short amount of time available are nuts.

Maybe they'll all perform one song together. You never know with Dre, right? It's not just about the new music. It's bigger than that.

Are they going to honor Nate? Snoop's analogy should have Nate in the back ala Still D-R.

^^ you talk the talk but didn't answer any of my questions I brought up. Too busy trying to talk down to people, all high and mighty huh. So I will ask you again. Should we take serums every time our bodies face adversity? PS: Serum is Latin for fluid, used in the medical sense meaning injections, just so you know, but with you having an STEM background you obviously do.

Its a simple question for you to answer? What are the experts saying when it comes to the link between general good health and and the less implication of covid? Its common knowledge worldwide that the two underlying causes of death from covid are obesity and diabetes, which the experts you mention all agree on by the way. Its up to you to to find the information not for me to relay it to you lol, research it yourself stop been lazy.

Contrary to popular belief you don't need to be an expert on anything to have an opinion, this is a dangerous narrative by the way on many subjects not just covid, why are you implying you cant have an opinion unless you are an expert? That's a retarded way to look at anything in life. Just imagine if you couldn't speak on anything unless you were an expert, imagine if we couldn't question the military because we were not in the army for example. Imagine if we couldn't question the police because we have never been a policeman.

I'm a qualified sports nutritionist by the way, not that I need to justify myself to you with all due respect

Bingo!

We are back in the dark ages before the renaissance except now instead of saying you can't question the religious authorities—it's that you can't question the medical authorities. 

And instead of the Salem With Trials of Colonial Mass. where a regular law abiding citizen could get accused of witchcraft and taken to court—now any healthy person doing normal things like breathing air can be accused of spreading Covid and sent off to a quarantine camp.

From what I understand based on what we hear in regards to Dre and Apple/Beats by Dre he seems to have distanced himself a bit from all that. I don't think he'd come on the stage at the halftime show and out of nowhere promote Beats by Dre. Also why would he call it the next saga of his career? Surely Beats by Dre is his past, maybe current saga. I don't know, but things just don't seem to line up for him to make a promotion of it.

That same weirdo culture swallowed up the Raiders coach today. I didn't particularly care for him but losing your job over opinions before you had the job is dumb.

To your point, Em Snoop and Dre don't come without warts. Having 50 not announced gives this weirdo culture reason to attack them.

"Gruden resigned from the team Monday after emails surfaced from 2011 where he used racist comments to describe a players' union executive. The New York Times reported that Gruden, 58, used homophobic and misogynistic terms years ago in another batch of emails from 2011 to 2018. The NFL shared copies of Gruden's emails internally during an on-going workplace misconduct investigation, the Times reported.

Because Gruden resigned, as opposed to being fired, he will probably be paid an unknown percentage of his remaining salary, said Derek Potts, a sports-contract lawyer in Houston."

Yeah, interesting. Could be a leftover track from a Mary J. session that Dre gave to Snoop for his compilation. Dre's probably sitting on the better track ready to maaaaybe do at the super bowl.

True, you're right. However, I had in mind that Dre could use the performance for a little teaser of Dre's new sound. I can see Mary J. doing a chorus or bridge of an unreleased song as a kind of transition to another song. Dre did similar stuff in the past and would get fans excited for new stuff.

The usual Super Bowl target group won't be interested in new stuff, they want to hear the familiar stuff anyway. But it's a cool change to lure some fans, if he's planning to drop a new album. If he doesn't want to a drop a new record, yeah, it'll be just a regular medley.
