Review of 2Nite by Dr Dre ft Kendrick Lamar and Jeremih
So Dr Dre isn’t happy with becoming Hip Hop’s richest man and selling Beats to Apple, he just decides to casually drop a new tune with no announcement and expected fan fare. He doesn’t just do that but he also throws in a collaboration with two of urban music’s biggest contemporary names in the shape of Kendrick Lamar and Jeremih.
The subject matter seems more akin to a Jeremih track than Dre and I think it will transpire later that this appears on a Jeremih album. Dre delivers his verse in his own unmistakeable style, albeit with a couple of strange anomalies thrown in. Kendrick’s appearance adds to the overall experience, as you would expect, his flow is just so smooth and feels tailor made for this kind of slow jam.
Jeremih is however the dominant force on the track, deliver a real RnB banger with his mates Dre and Lamar popping round to add some bars. This feels like fire to me. Quality production with real RnB music and a light Hip Hop layer. Strong verses from Dre and Kendrick and good singing means this will be a floor filler for RnB loving ladies.
Definitely a (pleasant) surprise to hear Dre spit some verses again, lets hope he does more than a solitary track this time round.
