Dr. Dre x Eminem x Jay-Z x 50 Cent x Nas


Two new Dre & Em collabs have surfaced the net. The first, “Syllables,” features an all star cast that includes 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Cashis and Stat Quo, and confronts the growing trend of r&b fused rap that focuses on the production more than the lyrics. Em raps about how people only remember the chorus (“cause the chorus repeats the same four words for us”) than mockingly sings “Shorty I love you, will you love me too?” It's a refreshing reminder of Em's wittier pre-Relapse days. Hova's lyrics are quite memorable as well. The second is a revamped version of last year's “Topless,” which features Nas, and Em rather than T.I. Both house downtempo piano beats, the latter definitely more fitting as a Dre track. Whether either of them will appear on Dre's infinitely prolonged Detox appears to be mystery.... hopefully we shall find out soon enough. Listen to "Syllables" and "Topless" below:
