Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
Supervising producer Dr. Dre has arranged a vivid selection of tracks to illustrate the sound that's happening right now: a mix of hip-hop, hardcore, old school, new jack swing and contemporary R&B in various pure strains and new compounds. "Anything" (by SWV) and "Regulate" (by Nate Dogg & Warren G) are the first two big singles off of ABOVE THE RIM, the latter a story of the inner city street tariffs done up in a mix of R&B and rap styles (in which "rhythm is life and life is rhythm") over a smooth keyboard vamp, the former a dance groove that combines traditional girl group styles and scratch-styled backgrounds. "Pour Out A Little Liquor" by Thug Life seeks escape from gritty everyday realities in gangsta style rhymes and fourty ouncer good times, while the subterranean funk of "Afro Puffs" features Lady Of Rage's feminine machisma ("I am the roughest roughest roughest, I am the toughest toughest toughest") over a classic Dr. Dre grab bag mix, a nasty collage of funny samples and deep bass.
