One would assume that this is because K.Dot is getting ready to drop his highly anticipated follow-up to good kid, m.A.A.d city.

    Parody headlines are getting a lot of mileage these days. Most recently an article which joked about Kanye West comparing himself to the late Nelson Mandela went viral after many took it literally. This could be attributed to weak satire, readers being too quick to believe everything they see, or perhaps most likely, parody sites banking on misunderstanding to generate page views. The blame may fall squarely on the readers in the case of this most recent Dr. Dre story however, as it's a little too ridiculous not to question.

    Emerging from the ghettos of New York City, specifically the Bronx, in the '70's, Hip-Hop became the voice for a people who had been ignored for too long. It echoed the conditions African- Americans were living in - and still are, to an extent - and their daily struggles. Acts like Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five laid down the roots for what would become, slowly, the genre that permeated global society; Hip-Hop, over time, became the method that people of all religions, cultures, socio-economic classes could speak through. Hip-Hop became a voice for the ignored.

    In early 1999, a white rapper came out of relative obscurity and pissed off a lot of people. He was a white kid from Detroit, backed by a legend in Dr. Dre, and savvy music -industry heavyweight Jimmy Lovine. Who was this bleach blond asshole liberally speaking about slitting his father’s throat and stuffing his baby’s Mama into the trunk of his car? The answer was in the record’s first single. The album was definitely one of a kind. Love it or hate it, it was a pivotal moment in the annals of Hip Hop.
