Christmas has come early with December's best.

Just what the doctor ordered. Some big bass beating, west coast funk courtesy of the return of the good Dr. Dre. Yes were back in 'Detox' and Snoop Dogg returns with his partner in rhyme with Akon back for the first time. Dr. Dre has been 'Under Pressure' to deliver a hit after some leaks didn't master that well for him. Critics and non believers will be eating his rhymes now however with this timeless, Dre classic sound. Sure we've heard a beat like this before, but it still bangs. Yes the subject matter again is on drugs, but the song is still dope and still D.R. Mother expletive E. Akon again pulls out a catchy chorus out of his bag of hooks, while Snoop makes it feel like '2001' (or 1999) all over again. Speaking of which, hold up... what would a track like this be without the additional vocals of Nate Dogg? As hear the Californian crooning legend tells us to "Roll up, wait a minute/Let me put some kush up in it" in an instantly, addictive repetitive chant we'll all sing along too. This really is 'Nuthin' But A G Thang' as this 'Chronic' track blows smoke up the industry and of course it's all ignited by Dre. His beat is a monster, his voice even more menacing than usual and as for the lyrics hit up Youtube and hear for yourself because the Doctor is in. You got your prescription? 4.5/5 TIM DAVID HARVEY
