Maybach Music got some real cinematic sounding production nowadays... Dre? not so much. n*gga was isolated too much and cooped up and lost touch with everything again like in 96. he needs another eminem like in 99 or snoop in 92 or cube in 88 to piggyback off of. Dracula a.ss n*gga
I've always felt like Dre is only as good as what he's given to work with, he meshes better with some artists than others. He's a master "molder" and "polisher" but I really dont think the dude does well from scratch at all. I remember 50 saying that when you get in the studio with Dre you usually have to jump start the process yourself so he would usually just write a verse or two to whatever was playing at the moment just to get Dre inspired.
