What That Rakim/Dr. Dre Album Could've Sounded Like!!!
« on: November 08, 2020, 12:46:22 PM »
Pure custom job here, since only a handful of tracks leaked from that era, I had to get creative and mix blends, using what little Ra acapellas out there and instrumentals from "The Wash" and "Bad Boys 2" movies that Dre scored...pretty much made this for peeps who wanted to hear Rakim spittin over Dre beats!!!



Tracklisting:

01. Danger Intro (Produced By Dr. Dre)
02. Addictive Rmx (ft. Truth Hurts) (Produced By Dr .Dre & DJ Quik)
03. The Watcher 2 (ft. Dr. Dre, Hittman & Truth Hurts) (Produced By Dr. Dre)
04. R.A.K.I.M. (Produced By Denaun Porter)
05. After You Die (Produced By Denaun Porter & Dr. Dre)
06. Bad Boys Saga (Produced By Dr. Dre)
07. Don't Get Back (Produced By Dr. Dre)
08. A Watcher (Interlude) (Produced By Dr. Dre)
09. Saga Begins (Produced By Dr. Dre)
10. New York State (Produced By Dr. Dre)
11. Another Saga (Produced By Dr. Dre)
12. Is Love Enough (Skit) (Produced By Dr. Dre)
13. A Final Saga (Produced By Dr. Dre)
14. Hoodlum Soldier (Interlude) (Produced By Dr. Dre)
15. It Ain't Kool (ft. Truth Hurts) (Produced By Hi-Tek)
16. Welcome To The Hood (Produced By Dr. Dre)
17. Hip-Hop (Produced By Dr. Dre)
18. The Last Minutes Outro (Produced By Dr. Dre & Chris Botti)

it was going to sound like a bit GRODT.

i heard that many beats from GRODT were produced for Rakim's album and dre wanted Rakim to write gangsta rap lyrics on them like 50 did. rakim refused this and decided to leave aftermath. those songs and concept used for 50 later.

Damn that's a dope ass compilation. The album really could've been a masterpiece.
Stat was right when it came to the music though. Rakim is a dope lyricist but to build a dope album, you have to throw in some nice hooks and all that.

hittman a couple months ago said on twitter his favorite dre beat is an unrealised song by rakim.

i remember some rakim interviews he wanted to work with dr dre again.

Don't know if his new album will see the light of the day, its in the work since a long time.

When you 'proper tagged version' what do you mean, sorry?

Love the beat on 'The Last Minutes Outro' wheres the track from? Is it that Burt Bacharach track 'Burt Bacharach - Go Ask Shakespeare'?

Eric B and Rakims 2nd record was one of those times Dre was excited to hear a new album.
Even got up early to go to the record store to pick it up.
He mentioned that in a magazine interview in the 90s.

Imagine if Rakim had hooked up with Dre in an earlier era?

No disrespect but hopefully the real LP would have been A LOT doper than this or the trash that was GRODT.
Charlie, lost his life right in front of the party...

Real album woulda had better beats for sure...these are just movie score instrumentals...not meant to be rapped over...they were the only Dre beats I could find (from 2001-2002) that fit the Ra acapellas I had...I think it gives it a fresh listen...not familiar Dre beats...I had the Heat/Backdown and Family Affair beats (dre beats Ra has rumoured to have been rapped over or offered) but couldnt get the pellas to fit those beats :-\

Yeah, that's it. I simply add the track numbers of the album and the tracks info properly, as well as the album cover.
