Okay, this is my final verdict for this track after giving it another listen this morning.

Totally uninspired hook, it's like they ran out of time and just let me freestyle something over the part where the hook is supposed to be. The production with that "Summer Madness" sound is sloppy too, sounds almost like a last minute addition. The verses are straight, but since the beat is so monotonous you just feel like pressing the "skip" button halfway through the track.

All in all, average track, probably something to throw somewhere in the middle of the album, but not a good choice for the first single at all.

It's a decent effort, but it sounds recycled in a way. I appreciate the subject matter and the concept, but realistically Dre needs to hit Bishop with a club banger or something harder if they're trying to get a buzz.

I think they're gonna drop a more commercial single in August/September then the album drops in October/November. If you look at Aftermaths prior releases, that's how they usually do it.

very nice track...too many people overanalyzing this....just enjoy the vibe.  I'm sure we'll get some outta of this world stuff here in the near future with the bishop album, em's album, and dre's album.  I think this is just the beginning.   8)

once again my concern is that this wont get the album on the shelves - only pushed back, re-worked on and changed

sometimes i just wish bishop/crooked i/etc would come with a WACK ass lil wayne-lollipop type single (as the only wack track) and the rest of the album bein the shit we expect from them - at least that'd get it on da shelves lol

I have to say I like the track. A couple of things though.

I don't understand what Bishop and Dre are trying to achieve here. This doesn't really introduce Bishop well to a radio audience. The theme of the track is totally inward looking about the state of hip-hop - he is addressing other rappers. It's a good album cut but I would have liked to hear a more universal theme. Hip-hop turning in on itself like this on a dude's first real single is to me not a good thing but all part of its demise...

Musically the track is ok. It's catchy but it's not a particularly great cross-over track. To be honest, I'm not a Kanye fan but comparing it to something like "When it all falls down" (which was the first Kanye track I heard), that was a hella of a track; a great pop song and decent enough hip-hop. Maybe it's personal taste but when that came out, it really was fresh as f*ck. This track sounds good but we've heard it before maybe not on a single but on countless albums.

Nice though the song is, its not interesting enough to have much replay value. If you want to blast peops away or even just get their attention, you have to come with something which is fresh in terms of concept, sound, everything. I really don't think this track is it.

I just gave this song its first spin. Sounds hot...nice laid back production, those claps remind of Busta's "Get You Some". In that sense though, it does sound a bit recycled. But then again, pretty much all producers recycle their drums (Khalil, Battlecat, Quik, ...), so I don't really care. Sounds dope!

If it were up to me, I would've changed the chorus though. That "up - up - uuuup" thing might be catchy, along with the Kool & the Gang sample, but I would've let a singer do the chorus. There's plenty of up-and-coming R&B talent on the West. Toussaint, Mike Ant, BJ The Kid (or what's his name again?), Chevy Jones, etc...

By the way: that guitar lick reminds me a lot of P Diddy's "I Need A Girl Part 2" (w/ Mario Winans, Ginuwine & Loon). Anyone else hear it?

when it comes to this track as the first single choice, i agree with you.

then again, great crossover singles are scarce.

Normally I'd be on the side of the people who are saying it's not a good first single choice... but I have made that same mistake so many times with so many Dre songs, as I said before...


In Da Club - sounded kind of boring and plodding, just those same three keyboard notes over and over, didn't even sound like a club track because it wasn't all hyped up and faster, and there didn't seem to be a chorus because the chorus just sounds like a verse.... I said no one outside of Dre-heads will be feeling this shit... boy was I wrong

Westside Story/How We Do - the first one sounded like a ripoff of In Da Club, but more cliched gangsta-rap style, and the second sounded like a 5-second-to-make beat because it was just 808 drums and a very, very, very simple 3 note melody... AND Game's verses sounded rushed and kind of off time... I thought this won't appeal to many people... but again, I was wrong

Still DRE - I had been waiting for around 7 years for a new Dre single... what I got was a 2 note piano thing repeatedly going 'ding ding ding ding' the entire way through the track, how annoying is that I thought... and the chorus didn't seem very memorable... again I was wrong

My Name Is - this leaked way before the album dropped and everyone was hyped because this was Dre's new guy... I wasn't impressed... he had a whiny high voice and the beat wasn't mindblowing, it was just a simple loop... and the chorus was some super simple shit... again, I was wrong!!


So this new Bishop track may not blow up... but if it doesn't, it won't be because of any of the reasons anyone has said here, because really, it's no different to a lot of the first tracks of some of the most successful Dre shit if you break it down. I could say the track is a simple guitar loop, and the chorus isn't that catchy, etc etc, but I'll be damned if I'm gonna be wrong about another Dre track! Lol, so I think if this gets everywhere like those other tracks did, it'll probably blow up

in the end, it's up to interscope to decide.

i really doubt they have accepted this as a first single, otherwise it would have been confirmed on their website right?
