Is it weird when adults don’t stop hyping how many nuggs they’re about to throw down after age 40? Not if they’ve cultivated a high/not high zen like Snoop and can still put things in perspective. When Calvin Broadus gets in on the second verse of this best-smoke piano thumper, he sets himself aside from sober ways folks act crazy in 2010, assured of his enduring interest in quality, “still I am/ tighter than the pants on will.i.am.” This is allegedly the first Detox single, and versus the sanitary sparkle of other tracks from Dre’s new album we’ve heard so far, this has got a sort of steroid-thick Timbo vibe. Looking forward to the record! Fingers crossed for release-by-Hanukkah.
