Couple stand out moments for me:

Suge/Dionne Warwick story (episode 3)

Cube's spot on but totally foul impersonation of DOC from that old Pump It Up episode

The fact detox is NEVER coming out but I bet a lot of money there will be more artists Dre produces that blow to the scale Fif, Em, Snoop, Kendrick have. Man's commitment is wild

The nature of DOC/Dre relationship. That DOC filled that little brother void left by Tyree after his passing

Yeah, you picked some good ones.  Suge's last line about Dionne was priceless.  The thing that stood out to me was how well produced it all was.  There was so much footage I had never seen (Dre coaching Eazy in the booth was classic), the DOC story was so heartbreaking in how it was displayed, and I loved how they used alternate footage from music video dailies and how crisp it looked.  They had stuff from the California Love remix video that looked like it was shot yesterday.  And I wasn't sure how invested I would be in the Jimmy side of the story but they really pulled it off well.  An excellent documentary from start to finish.

Cube's spot on but totally foul impersonation of DOC from that old Pump It Up episode

yo when I saw that my job dropped lmao cold blooded

I figured he never dissed D.O.C. during that time period but I guess that was the one shot  :laugh:

Yeah, what's crazy is they show that interview in Dre's "Behind the Music" but the narrator talks over it and the audio doesn't cut in until after that.  That was pretty cold of Cube to say but it was different times.

Just watched the 3rd episode, I'm impressed with it so far.

I wasn't expecting much because I know most of the story before but it was captured brilliantly and honest.

The D.O.C part stands out for me, from Dre narrating the story and describing the accident to how they brought D.O.C in to continue the story in his damaged voice .

After that it was the Dre/Snoop/DPG/Deathrow/Pac bit, learnt nothing new from that but Deathrow stories doesn't get boring.

I was genuinely shocked by that. Bitch move with the benefit of hindsight but I guess to Cube's credit, he prob thought it was a temporary thing. Lots of folks at the time were saying with therapy and rehab maybe he could get his voice back.

Also forgot to mention that scene with Dre touching those Marvin Gaye vocals.... and the part in episode 4 where eminem says he has no idea why but at some point Dre found his music to not be good rough for release, no matter how good everyone else thought it was (including Em).

The amount of unreleased footage is staggering. Hell even the acapellas they dug up are dope as hell.

That footage of Dre and Pac on the video set literally looks like it was shot yesterday. Super high resolution and quality

The quality of the footage was amazing indeed. That "Nuthin' But A 'G' Thang" video shoot footage was crisp as well. 8)

Overall, I really enjoyed the documentary and I've learned some good stuff about Jimmy and other small details.

Just finished the 4th episode and it was a great documentary, but imo it was more specifics and detailed at the beginning and they rushed the end (musically speaking) to talk about Beats and the business side.

Yeah, that's true. I was expecting some comments about 2001, but they just skipped that one and just briefly mentioned it. The Apple deal is huge, I get that, but getting some more behind the scenes footage and his opinion about his albums would have been much more interesting.

kinda agreed, I wanted to hear more about why he felt The Aftermath and The Firm didn't do so well in sales whether it was the music itself or the marketing (or lack thereof) behind it... also some more insight into 2001 and how the fire started back up

It was fine until the 4th episode , which basically was an ad for Apple .

No details on 2001 , "there was the 50 cent album " LOL , it was the most anticipated debut album since Doggystyle

It was a good documentary, but there was a lot of things that wasn't talked about, like "2001" for instance. Would've been dope to hear Dre and Nas talk about "The Firm" album and what they felt about it "flopping"/sellin' less then they thought it would sell. It was nice to see Dre bumpin' Nirvana.

Lol, that really Suga Free? And was nice to see part of that video in such high quality. Kinda weird, like Dre and Snoop didn't get older and they shot the same video again in 2017.
IS DETOX NEXT? Don't think so.
