    Anderson .Paak Talks 'Compton,' Dr. Dre in Interview With Mass Appeal
    Anderson .Paak, formerly known as Breezy Lovejoy, was all over Dr. Dre's Compton: the Soundtrack and deservedly so. The Oxnard, California, singer/emcee recently sat down with Mass Appeal talking about how Dr. Dre found out about him, working with Dre and Kendrick Lamar, what Compton the city means to him and more.
    Check out some tidbits below, and read the whole interview withMass Appeal here.

    .Paak said he met Dre when going to work in the studio with DJ Dahi for a Dr. Dre project, which he didn't really believe:

    When Justus and King Mez heard it, they were like, “Yo, you wanna work with DJ Dahi for this Dre project?” When I heard that, I was like, “That’s tight,” but I kinda didn’t pay any attention to it, because I’ve been out here for 10 years and you always hear these stories about people working for Dre. ... So we go to the studio, and I get to record one, and the first person I see come through is Dre and DOC, and I’m like, “Damn!”

    On a session with Dre:

    When he calls, you just go over there. ... He’ll tell me what he’s thinking as far as the vibe of the track, and I’ll tell him what I’m thinking. We’ll go over ideas, and he’ll pour up a glass of Hendrick’s gin, and we’ll just go in. ... You hear that he’s a perfectionist, and that’s definitely true. ... We’ll take breaks, and he’ll tell me crazy Death Row stories, and there’s just a lot of dynamics with him. It’s really chill, man.

    How "Animals" came to be:

    Before I left the studio with him, I was like, “Oh shit, let me play you this joint I got with Premo.” He was like, “You got a joint with Premier?” I played it, and it wasn’t even three bars in and he just went nuts! He was like, “I gotta get on this!” The next day, Dre hits me up himself, like, “Yo, I fucking love this song. I know it’s your tune, and no disrespect, but I would love for this to be a part of the soundtrack. Whatever we have to do…” I was like, “Say no more, let’s make history,” so he added his verse on there.

    Being the only stand-alone artist on Compton:

    I feel blessed. I’m super proud about that. ... Dre pulled me aside, and told me, “Yo man, I really appreciate you for what you did for this album. I’m a huge fan of Preem, and you just put this song ["Animals"] in my lap, and I can’t thank you enough.”

    Okay so I saw this idea where we have this game.

    What it is is, you make a playlist (mp3 files, Spotify or whatever) and a cover, then make it for a random member that I assign to you. Dont tell anyone who you got. Then I'll post them all later, and we will have some kind of guessing for who made who etc.


    1. Post in this thread
    2. Later I'll pm you a username.
    3. Make that member a mixtape
    4. Send me your mixtapes, I'll distribute them
    5. I'll make a final thread with all the mixtapes in the end.
    Songs can be from forever, don't have to be obscure, just a representation of what you've been listening to this year mixed with what you think that member would enjoy.
    Like, if you get dadon, don't take Tupac just because he likes him, do something you've listened to this year that he might enjoy.

    Sending homemade cover artwork and naming the mixtape is mandatory.

    Try to narrow down to one song per artist (Max two) only (not 10 em songs for example)

    Do mostly rap, but it can be other stuff too. Just mainly rap.

  10. Are you all forgetting who this album is being handled by? This is Dr. Dre, the guy who makes artists re-record single lines if they're not perfect, who made Eminem and Kendrick Lamar's (plus loads more) careers possible, who kept scrapping one album because he didn't like everything he made for it over the course of 16 years. I'm not saying you should expect the best rap album of all time, but I am saying that some people need to have some optimism for once instead of constantly repeating the same negative, buzzkilling bullshit because you personally dislike a certain featured artist, or because you personally dislike the way Eminem currently raps. This is Dr. Dre, he knows what the fuck he's doing.
     
  11. Imagine you hear new Eminem song and you like everything about it the first listen. Damn... :rlysrs:

    It depends. Eminem's not gonna be top dog forever.

    In terms of overall skill, obviously no.

    Hello fellow humans and aliens.

    Better late than never but I got this new game for this years christmas. Its not the same as last year, not at all. This time its less personal but even more about discovering new music.

    Also if anyone wants to jump in Ill allow it until Sunday perhaps if youre cool

    Heres how it works:


    Pre-game (within 18 hours)

    Step 0.
    READ THE ENTIRE OP BEFORE POTENTIALLY JOINING!!


    Step 1.
    Sign up by liking this post or quoting it telling me youre in.
    1.1 - If you dont think you can follow through and think youll drop out of the game - dont join. Looking at you Copper

    Step 2.
    Get a theme from me in the mail.
    2.1 - It could take me a little while to send them all out, but ill be as fast as possible. In the meanwhile just write down a bunch of your favorite tracks, preferrably not the most known tracks.
    2.2 - Bonus points if you PM me a bunch of differen themes as I'm not the most inventive person in the world

    Step 3.
    Make an album with 24 songs. (this could be made as we go as well, as long as you actually follow thought with it)
    3.1 - The playlist should have something to do with your theme. Dont be lazy and just put 24 songs you like, try to fit the theme, find new songs if you dont know that many. For example, say the theme is Winter, use songs that either have something to do with winter, are named something with winter etc. Doesnt have to be literal winter songs, just songs that give you dem winter feels.
    3.2 - Max 3 songs per main artist.
    3.3 - At least 18 Hip Hop songs.


    Step 4.
    Make cover art (could be made closer to the end np)
    4.1 - Cover art based on your theme of course

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The game (December 1-December 24):

    Step 1
    .
    December first, I'll post the first song from my CD. After that, you can post your first song as long as you say a little something about a song thats posted before yours.
    1.1 - Just a small little feedback to the song, preferrably one you havent heard before. You dont need to even like it, just confirm you heard it, then post yours.

    Step 2.
    Every day, we will post new songs from our album. Repeat step 1 except for me posting the first, which isnt needed anymore.
    2.1 - Post a little something about your track, like why you picked the song
    2.2 - Save your favorite track for last, December 24th should be all of our favorite songs (from our tape) posted.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    End-game (December 25-December 31):
    After we have posted all our songs, you post your cover art, tracklist and a potential download. I might put up a vote to see which albums people feel are the best etc.


    The main goal of this thing is to explore new music. Itll hopefully be fun. Lets do this fam.

  16. Please bear with the length of this post; it's interesting I swear. So nobody I know IRL is into hip hop music. My love for it is probably just one one more reason to convince them all of my weirdness (to which I freely admit, haha). However, I recently saw my brother for the first time in years and once again tried to make a convert of someone.

    He started off by equating rap music with the promotion of violence, law-breaking and profanity. Weirdly enough he remembered a one-hit wonder from the 90's called Skee-Lo and a random R&B singer named Montell Jordan. He thought Will Smith's music was kind of cool. He also remembered the melodies of Bones Thugs & Harmony being great and liking their Crossroads video, but getting disgusted by the violence in an album he'd bought. He thought (and probably still thinks) artists should be "more responsible" to society with their content.

    However he was open to hearing some more so I played him a limited selection from my downloaded collection. Started off with 2100 by RTJ; he quickly picked up on the political themes. Then a song by Royce from Layers; not much comment on that one.

    Then on to Eminem. I couldn't believe he'd never heard Lose Yourself and wasn't all that impressed. With Sing For the Moment, he snorted at how Em seemed to be blaming the police/ lawyers for his problems. Such blasphemy of my two favorite Em songs! Then You Don't Know from The Re-Up... "They sure do a lot of glass-breaking." Lmao. Without Me: "That's really catchy." He also had already heard--and actually liked--The Real Slim Shady. His verdict? "Eminem seems a little crazy. XD

    Then Dopefiend's Diner by 2Pac. "Whoa... That is really good." He commented on how much the woman's singing added to the song and wanted to hear more like it. Next was Changes; he remembered 2Pac and when he died; he saw a tribute on MTV. Then Ghetto Gospel; he was kind of disgusted songs had been made after Pac died and were "monkeying around" with his vocals; to him it wasn't real. I was surprised to hear him say "the way the vocals interact with the music is really important." Then Life Goes On and So Many Tears. He wasn't overly impressed by California Love or anything by Snoop Dogg or Dr. Dre. He'd heard some of the most famous radio songs from the 90's. Come to find out he was more of a rap fan than he probably remembered. One of his favorite songs was by the Beastie Boys. He also knew about Eazy E/ NWA. Uh-huh. Really? He was caught.

    Final verdict? "2Pac is by far the best. The way he tells a story really draws you in. I was captivated by all his songs." He also commented on how Pac was able to convey emotions in his voice. "Eminem is second best." (Great taste must run in the family. Never mind that I only played him my favorite artists/ songs, Lol.) He also said it was interesting how hip hop could show you how other people live/ different cultures, and different life experiences and perspectives. All in all, I'd say my little experiment was successful.
