    - Animals f. Anderson Paak
    - Medicine Man f. Eminem, Candice Pillay & Anderson Paak
    - Talking To My Diary

    To me this is one of the most difficult one's for sure. Just like @Mikey this is easily my favorite album from 2015-2020. W different producers and unique sounds for every song this s----s (imo) on recent releases. Easily Dre's 3rd classic and literally every artist delivered. But to each their own!

    For me, Talk About It is the least of the songs.
    Its a strong opener for sure, but I don't really like Dre's high pitched voice (same he does on Medicine Man) and yeah I can't eliminate another song instead.

    This is gonna s---.

    Also, would be cool if people stated a reason (if possible) why.

    Since there is no dre tag I'm gonna tag some people to get it going and will update the mention list w people participating (and delete people that want off).

    @Zhaddow didn't go w dn because imo would have been too easy and I don't just wanna do eminem. Gonna have other artists as well.

    Obviously only 'big' artists on this forum because we all saw (sadly) what happened w @Grimace young thug elimination game

    Believe it or not I don't know how it works, so we put down the song we think should get out first?

    Compton's a f---ing great album, still own it, it's the only CD I own from the last 5 years besides Joey badasses all American badass that I can bump in the car with people

    All those Kendrick features got forgotten, he put in work on this album


    Snoops entrance is so enjoyable and hype as s---

    The games song goes crazy

    For the love of money and animals are pretty creative IMO

    Full of highs

    Medicine Man is my least favourite song on here and not for the reason you probably think. It just feels the least consequential and is kinda poorly sequenced breaking up Animals and Diary.

    Everyone’s gonna think I’m voting for it ‘cause of the Em verse regardless even though I consider that one of his better post-hiatus verses

    Yeah vote for ur least favorite

    Honestly, I believe you. I also think Eminem is good on this song but the track as a whole kinda feels out of place. Still a nice song, but definitely one of the weaker ones as far as this album goes. Also not a fan of Dre's voice here. Feels kinda forced compared to his usual laid back flow.

    The main strength of this album imo is that it really is the best of both worlds

    We got a bunch of new / more unknown artists shining and the veterans (snoop, x, em, ice cube) deliver strong verses as well. And so does Dre himself.

    Production is also a combo of modern rap combined w vintage Dre sound

    talk about it is top 5 on the album @The Shape

    I hope one shot one k--- or darkside wins this
    the cube song was crazy too, kinda forgot about it but it's a special song for sure

    but there are some forgettable tracks as well ; "it's all on me" is one of those and I vote for it
    (pls don't mention me for next rounds, i won't vote everytime i think)
