Dr. Dre Is Joined By Pete Rock & Kurupt For A Rare Freestyle Session On 'The Pharmacy'
From the jump, Dr. Dre's aptly-named Beats 1 program The Pharmacy has provided true-schoolers and new-schoolers alike with enough rare cuts and larger-than-life in-studio collisions to last a lifetime.
This weekend proved no different, as Dre hosted a pair of his fellow early 90s hip-hop pioneers on the primetime slot, inviting Pete Rock and Kurupt to rock in the booth with the do-it-all-to-death producer-turned-mogul. While many would expect the east-meets-west linkage to be of the beatsman's sort, what actually took place was a showcase of Dre and PR's oft slept-on rhyming skills, with Kurupt delivering what may be his best outing in years. It's a rare glimpse at the deceptively-dope wordsmiths behind the beats that defined an era and it's available for you to hear down below, edited as they may be for the family-friendly airwaves. Hear Dr. Dre, Pete Rock & Kurupt spit mean sixteens on The Pharmacy below and tune-in Saturday at 6PM for the next episode.
