The day is December 7, 2013. AD. The world is still awaiting the mythical coming of Dr. Dre’s Detox, and while this commercial for the Beats by Dre “Pill” won’t make me go out and purchase that stupid looking music box, I have to admit, that this is one of the more exciting records I’ve heard from Kendrick Lamar and Dr. Dre. Regretfully, I’m going to have to give Dr. Dre and his Beats by Dre creations a shameless free plug, even though he hasn’t done shit for me or CLP Nation financially. Fucker. I hate you. I’m just playing! When Good Kid, M.A.A.D City dropped, I didn’t buy into the “instant classic” hype. Kendrick Lamar’s record have honestly been hit or miss with me. I know he can rap and make awesome music…and I’ve seen footage of him absolutely killing his stage show, but since his arrival on the scene, I’ve been waiting for records like this Director’s Cut joint in more consistency. Better late than never I suppose. This record is going to be dope when it drops but I’m secretly hoping this is a record on Detox and not Kendrick’s next project. I want to close by saying that Detox is on the way…but we’ve been saying that for half a decade now. This will do for now Dr. Dre. As you were.
