Dr. Dre's Back In The Studio, Dem Jointz Hints "Detox" Dropping In 2021

The hip-hop community was shocked after finding out about Dr. Dre’s scary hospitalization. The legendary rap producer suffered a brain aneurysm and was admitted into the ICU as he recovered. Thankfully, medical health professionals assisting Dre took good care of him and even said after a week that there wasn’t a “bad outcome” on the horizon.

Ice-T has been among those who’ve provided updates on the Doc during his stint in ICU. On Friday, he confirmed that Dr. Dre finally returned home. “Update: Just FaceTimed with Dr. Dre,” Ice-T wrote. “He just made it home. Safe and looking good.” Decades after founding the artform of gangsta rap, and Ice-T continues to prove that there’s no cap in his rap. Producer Focus… took to Instagram where he shared a photo of Dr. Dre and a group of others, including Phonix Beats, Smitty, Dem Jointz, and more, posing together in the studio. 

“My Big Bro is Super Good!!! We Working… I TOOK THE PIC SO I’M HERE,” Focus… captioned the post. A more insightful post came from Dem Jointz who shared the same photo. He didn’t say anything more than, “And We Back!!! #Detox21.” Now, Dre himself hasn’t confirmed that this would be happening, and if we’re being honest, nobody will actually believe Detox is released unless it actually drops. But, it would be great if we can hear what he’s been working on for all these years.

Dax is back again with another video and this time, he takes on the task of creating a remix of Eminem‘s ‘Rap God’. Always ready to show and prove that he is worthy of being called a lyricist, the rapper gets into his bag and delivers 6 minutes of pure bars and lyricism. If you were worried that he might falter, this video shows you that the man is about it and is always ready to step up to the plate and give the best performance whenever it is required of him. Dax really has no need to convince anybody of his capabilities but it must be the emcee in him that makes him take up the challenge. Hope you enjoy!

SlimYungMan shares two beats “5%”/”Misc. Bag” for us to rock with

By Tayo Odutola Word Is Bond

Producer SlimYungMan comes through with two solid cuts from his stash as the new year rolls in.

The first record on deck is titled “5%” and serves as the opening track to SlimYungMan’s  Compleks instrumental tape series. The song is a moody and somewhat atmospheric piece that rises at certain parts as it progresses. From the lush dreamy textures, vocal samples, and somber keys, the producer sure delivers something off the hook.

Get “5%”  on Soundcloud.

 

“Misc. Bag” is the second instrumental and goes a whole different route. The beat starts off some slow and builds up into a somber piece with snappy boom-bap drums laced with moody basslines. It’s quite cinematic and gripping to some extent.

Get “Misc. Bag” on Soundcloud.

Both instrumental’s are from The EP Compleks III three of the producer’s hip hop/ambient beat series.  He adds that the forthcoming EP is dedicated to his recently deceased friend Melvin.

Bills Defeat Ravens & Advance To AFC Championship For 1st Time Since 1993

The Buffalo Bills defeated the Baltimore Ravens 17-3 Saturday night to advance to the AFC Championship Game. Next week will mark the first time the Bills have advanced this far into the playoffs since the 1993 season.

The Ravens were within reach for the majority of the game until a 101-yard pick-6 by Taron Johnson broke the game open for the Bills. Soon after, Ravens’ star quarterback Lamar Jackson was taken to the locker room and put in concussion protocol. The Bills never looked back.

“What we’ve been through as a football team … I feel like our guys handled with toughness and with grace. … Even today when we weren’t at our best, they still fought,” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh told reporters after the loss.

Ravens linebacker Matthew Judon, who was franchise tagged this season, says he’s unsure of his future with the organization: “I don’t know what’s going to happen next year. I don’t know what’s going to happen in my future. The past five years has been a hell of a ride. I love the Ravens and the organization and I’d just like to thank them.”

The Bills will take on the winner of Sunday’s matchup between the Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs.
