Dr. Dre feat. Snoop Doggy Dogg - "Deep Cover"

Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me for a decade straight, shame on me.  "Under Pressure," the good doctor's supposed single with Jay-Z that was supposed to be released yesterday is yet another sign of what many hip hop heads have theorized for years--that Detox is nothing more than a myth.  Despite claims  that Dre's third and final album will in fact drop by the end of the year, I remain in doubt, holding to a wait and see attitude.

Regardless of whether Detox ever drops, we still have an entire discography of Dr. Dre cuts to bump.  "Deep Cover," also known as "187" is Dre's only solo single prior to The Chronic and features the first ever appearance by Snoop on a record.  The 1992 track served as the eponymous song to the soundtrack off of the crime thriller of the same name and (no surprise) sounds quite similar sonically to the sound of the doctor's proper solo debut that was released later in the year.  It's a cut that a lot of people haven't heard that much of from either artist, but remains a classic of early 90s gangster rap genre.

Peace, Love, & Hip Hop,

  1. I think this might be my favorite Snoop/Dre collab. The beat is harder than any other gangsta rap beat out there, imo. I basically just love this song.

  2. Pretty much any Dre/Snoop collab is a no brainer...I think that Snoop's first verse on this cut is one of his best.
