Dr Dre has definitely produced some work that continues to inspire me to date. With the release of his new movie Compton, it’s like a good time to create a Top 5.
Now I would say that this is a list of my 5 favourite Dre tracks of all time but that wouldn’t be completely accurate. My preferences change like the seasons but these songs tend to hover real close to the top so in no particular order, here are some of my favourite songs from the good doctor.
Grow Up – Bishop Lamonte
Although this track was never considered a hit by mainstream standardss, the beat is classic Dr Dre and Bishop Lamonte’s theme, lyrics and flow were damn near perfect on this one
Still D.R.E – Dre feat. Snoop Dogg
Who doesn’t love this song? Still lose my mind as soon as I here them keys drop on the intro. One of the best Hip Hop videos of all time in my opinion as well. Directed by another Hip Hop icon Hype Williams, both video and song should be certified classics.
Forgot About Dre – Dre feat. Eminem
This track caught me off guard when I first heard it. Think it was the flow that did it. Eminem did his usual damage on this beat. I had it on repeat until I could learn all the lyrics
California Love – 2Pac and Dr Dre
This had to make it in there. California Loooove!! This song had me wanting to move to Cali for a while….not so sure these days.
Gin and Juice – Snoop Doggy Dogg
“With so much drama in the LBC, it’s kinda hard being Snoop D-O double G”. This is when Snoop was …well, Snoop.
