Leave it to a drowsy holiday weekend for some unheard Dr. Dre to rattle the Internet. From the depths of Reddit emerges an unheard Dre and Kendrick Lamar collaboration, with vocal assistance by Jeremih.


“2Nite” is some sensuous Dre, presumably no relation to the music he’s hinted at making for the Straight Outta Compton soundtrack. Instead, Andre Young returns to that ’90s “creep-mode,” alluring his lady with some smooth words and a deft delivery. In Dre’s limited Rap appearances in recent years, this is some of the most aggressive you’ll hear him. Just as Doc’s done alongside Eminem, perhaps K-Dot has him picking up the pace to drive those lyrics like his ’64 Impala. Kendrick does the same, as usual. However, the verses envelope a musing by Jeremih, riffing a new rendition of The Roots & Erykah Badu’s “You Got Me.”

How does this compare to “The Recipe” and other D-R-E x K-Dot collabos?
