GI’s Review on Compton

Fresh off the heels of Dirty Sprite 2 and Dreams Worth More Than Money, Dr. Dre drops the long awaited “Detox” album cleverly entitled Compton.

The soundtrack to movie Straight Outta Compton is packed with hardcore beats and rhymes fit for a hip-hop junkie and Dr. Dre enthusiast, with features from west kings such as Snoop Dog and Kendrick Lamar to name a few.  It’s very rare for me to be excited by today’s music with all off the disposal music these days, but I must say I’m extremely satisfied with this body of work.  Tracks like Genocide, Darkside/Gone, Satisfaction and Animals are just a few of the tracks that I like the most.

Overall this is what hip-hop has been missing.  Dope beats and lyrics with substance.  Not to bash Future and Meek Mill, but they are nowhere close to comparison with Compton.  Definitely a must have in your collection.  Dr. Dre strikes again!!!
