DRE Films and Jon J have outdone themselves with this one. Just as the description says, the video to Rick Ross's "3 Kings" is a visual piece. Watch below as the, God Forgives, I Don't favorite is complemented by a cleverly compiled assortment of clips of Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, the Bawse, and even a young Beyoncé.

Looks like Kendrick Lamar finally got Dr. Dre out of the studio and onto his video shoot for "The Recipe." The women are clearly there, the weather looks beautiful, and Schoolboy Q and Soul are there to provide the 3rd W. Check out a few behind the scenes pics from the shoot below!

There are a few names in R&B that I never guessed I would hear again, and Truth Hurts is definitely one of them. Remember the R. Kelly & Dr. Dre protege who had the hit single "Contagious?" Yep, that's her.
She's not back with music, but she has "set free" her previously unreleased track with Beanie Sigel, "The Truth." Check out the 20002, Dr. Dre produced cut below, and hit the comments with your thoughts!

It's a beautiful thing to see Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg still performing together after 20 years of making music. They took their show to Coachella this weekend inviting a ton of guests, including Eminem, Kurupt, 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa, and....Tupac. Yup. Tupac, or at least a hologram version of Tupac, performed "Hail Mary" and "Gangsta Party" on the Coachella stage to a crowd of high and probably freaked out fans.
Watch Dr. Dre and Snoop's full set below!

From the second I found out Kendrick Lamar's new single was coming out today, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I've said it before and I'll say it again that he's my favorite rapper out, period. With backing from Dr. Dre and TDE's recent deal with Aftermath, I hope more of the world will hear how prolific he is so early in his career.
Feast your ears on the first single from his major label debut album (which may be titled Good Kid In A Mad City), "The Recipe," which features a verse from Dre and production from veteran West Coast producer Scoop DeVille. The single, which was originally titled "Women, Weed & Weather," will be on iTunes later on today!

It irks me that the title isn't "Whose House" but I'm getting past it. Dr. Dre recently stated that he's only going to be working with Slim The Mobster and Kendrick Lamar for the next few years, and the two chosen ones have linked up for "Who's House." Listen below as they spit over the Boi-1da produced Big Sean track, "My House!"
