He needs the Lady Gaga feature to appeal to mainstream fans.
I don't see the album selling well honestly.
I don't agree on either point. He's steadily built a fanbase without Lady Gaga. He doesn't need her. And it won't matter anyway. Wale had a Lady Gaga feature on his first album.....it didn't do shit for him. And the song was wack.
The Gaga feature only helps if the song is dope.
And I think it will sell well. He's built a pretty good buzz. If KRIT and Curren$y both debuted top 10, Kendrick will too. And if Kendrick makes a hit, which he's capable of, his album will have more legs than theirs did.
honestly , Dre is one of the greatest producers of all time if not the greatest , however as a rapper , the guy has no presence
even in his deathrow days , anytime he was in a track or a video with Snoop or DPG , It's always Snoop or Kurrupt's part that i'm waiting for , I feel as if Dre is rapping just to fill in the track
he's just not one of the interesting figures , there isn't anything unique about his rapping , however he's a legendary producer
^that badass roster^

Let Me Ride, Still D.R.E, Forgot About Dre, The Next Episode, Nuthin' but a G Thang, Keep Their Heads Ringin...ummm...yeah that's it. And I only like Keep Their Heads Ringin for the beat and chorus, Nuthin' but a G Thang because of Snoop's verses, Next Episode because of Nate and the beat and Forgot About Dre because of Em and the beat.
So yeah, definitely not a Dre fan as far his rapping goes, his production on the other hand is another story. But I like the headphones though.
