If it is true, it will mark the collision of two of the biggest icons of the hip-hop genre, from the past and present. Apparently, Dr. Dre and Jay-Z have recorded a single together, which may appear on Dre's much-anticipated and long-awaited new platter, Detox.
The news broke during Sunday night's Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees opening night baseball game at Boston’s famed Fenway Park. Dre and Interscope Records head honcho Jimmy Iovine let the cat out of the bag when the pair took part in batting practice and promoted the Red Sox edition of the "Beats by Dre" headphones. The pair spoke, albeit briefly, about a new single dubbed "Under Pressure," when the sports network NESN asked Iovine what song would be his at-bat tune. Iovine coyly replied, "The new song Dre has in his pocket called 'Under Pressure.' It is a brand new single by Dr. Dre and Jay-Z." Dre concurred with his label chief!
What is your favorite Dre jam? What about Jay-Z? Do you think the duo's collaboration will impact the hip-hop world like an atom bomb?
