Check out this quick behind the scenes video for Dre's upcoming Converse collaboration with James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) and Gorillaz called "DoYaThing".
Nothing really from his verse, but if you look close, you'll see his part of the video at the :50 second mark. There's also this amazing illustration. We're 98% sure that's Andre on the right rockin the Rorsharch-y joint on his face.
Just announced: Dre will be collaborating with James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem) and Gorillaz on a track called "DoYaThing" for Converse' "Three Artists, One Song" series. It comes out on February 23rd, and you can get it on the Converse Site.
Have you seen Big Boi's unofficial remix of "Shutterbugg" over a beat by Crystal Castles? He did it on an episode of Pitchfork.tv's "Selector" series. Watch him do it right here, and if you want the track (which you DO) you can get it now on The Selector Series Mixtape, which also has tracks by Lil B, Killer Mike, Danny Brown, DJ Quik and more.
Smoking Section just put out this list of Big's 20 Best Guest Verses and it's deep. Way more than just Killer Mike and Jay-Z here. True fans won't be disappointed, and you'll probably even find some new stuff (buddy). Enjoy.
Dre hooked up with pop freak Ke$ha for yet another remix of her track "Get Sleazy", this time with T.I., Wiz, and Lil Wayne. Half his verse is from the perspective of an 8-year old. We'll give you a second to let that sink in...Dre raps from inside the brain of an 8 year old. That's some mental acrobatics right there. Genius.
This one comes from Paris, circa 2000, and though the mics are a little loud in the video, you still get a good sense of what it would be like to check out a lower-key Outkast show PRE "Hey Ya". And you know you'd kill to have Dre's pants. He was crushin the No Shirt + Pants + Leather Gauntlets + Perm look back then. Pause.Read more
Lloyd's track "Dedication to My Ex (Miss That)" featuring Dre and Lil Wayne, just got an official video and it is...crazy. Wayne Brady does Lil Wayne's verses and a talking cat does Andre's (possibly as a reference to the Ms. Jackson video?). Sure, why the hell not. Check it out below.Read more
Big Boi and a masked Andre 3000 (lookin a little like Rorshach) were in a pretty epic photo shoot with (almost all of) The Dungeon Family this weekend for GQ magazine. Check out some behind the scenes photos right here, and more over at Straight From The A.Read more
