Released as the second single to Dr. Dre’s acclaimed 1999 album The Chronic 2001, “Forgot About D.R.E.” featuring Eminem’s unnerving Slim Shady alter-ego made known Dre’s feelings about any Death Row shots being thrown at the time. Winning an MTV VMA in 2000 and a Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group in 2001 only cemented the song’s legacy.
Most rap fans may have stopped holding out much hope for a Detox release since it was “supposedly” scraped for the “Compton” album, but there are still some who believe it will one day surface. Keep hope alive kids! The world is still watching every move Dre makes so before he inks his next game-changing deal, crack open a cold one and give this classic record a spin.
