For Reference Only? 11 Rap Reference Tracks We Want To Hear Finished (Pg. 7)
The Reference Track: “Shit Popped Off,” featuring T.I.
The Original Plan: Another day, another Detox reference track (it’s not the last one on this list, either!). Tip and Dre spent a lot of time in the studio prior to Tip’s firearms scandal. T.I. ghostwrote a bunch of stuff for the Doctor (just check him spitting, “A party ain’t a party ’til the Doc walk in it!”) and his (hopefully) forthcoming album.
The Potential: A solid Dre beat + Some solid rhymes written by the King of the South = A solid Dr. Dre production. We really hope Dre hasn’t thrown this one out.
