An obviously unfinished version of the much anticipated Dr. Dre/Jay-Z jam "Under Pressure" was posted at www.RapRadar.com yesterday. Take a listen to the track here. It thumps, that is for sure, and Dre and Jay share an impressive, captivating vocal chemistry as they trade off over an urgent beat. These two hip-hop luminaries have finally come together and the results are nothing short of fucking awesome, even if the song does sound like it needs to be cleaned up and filled out before it is ready for mass consumption by hip-hop and casual music fans.
The song is slated to appear on Detox, Dre's new album which is reportedly due out in 2011. Damn, Dre. How long you going to make us wait over here? Sure, we can grant you some patience and an extension, since The Chronic is one of the most important hip-hop platters of all time, but really? We need some new Dre, and stat. And an unfinished clip, while exciting, is not enough. Thanks for listening, bro.
What did you think of the song and lyrics? Is the Dre/Jay –yes, I know, that rhymes- duet everything you hoped, wanted and expected? Does Dre still have it?
