Anderson. Paak Taps Dr. Dre For New Track "Who R U"

If you thought Slim Shady and Dr. Dre were a smash, you need to hear this new single from .Paak and Dre. 

In preparation for his Oxnard album, which is set to blast through streaming circuits on Nov. 16, Anderson. Paak has enlisted the help from Dr. Dre to gift fans with his newest single "Who R U."

The 3-minute track packs a mean, right hook with its two-in-one beat compilation. The first being a militaristic, hip-hop influence and the second is a clap-heavy play on the first without the weight from the bass in the header.

The Dr. Dre-produced beat highlights .Paak's vocals and showcases his lyrical abilities. Although the anthem is missing a 16-bar-verse from the 53-year-old, the single does display Dre's voice as an undertone to play up the "Tint" rapper.

While Paak conquers both verses in this song, the pair collaborates to bring life to the chorus. "Now, who are you? (Who the f**k is this?)/I don't know, no/What you do?/I don't know, no/You short a few? (Oh don't make me have to lose it)/Oh no, no, hold up/Pull my sticky out the jar, come on," 

"Who R U" is the second track to come from Paak's upcoming album produced by Dr. Dre and his first official album on Aftermath Entertainment. The artist release "Tint," featuring Kendrick Lamar earlier this year. The forthcoming project will also follow his 2016 project Malibu.

New York City's 'Hot 97' Will Not Play Tekashi 6ix9ine's Music After His Prison Release

With 6ix9ine expected to come home soon, reportedly to a record deal worth $10 million, New York City's Hot 97 radio station is making it known that they will not play his music.

According to a report by TMZ, an executive from the radio station confirmed that they are not planning on playing 6ix9ine's music upon his release from prison. Hot 97's exec admits that the station has never been a big supporter of the rapper. They also dislike the Brooklyn rapper's decision to testify against his former Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods associates.

This also includes possibly banning the rapper from Summer Jam concert. TMZ  reported that the "Gummo" rapper is too much of a liability to preform at the celebrated concert.

Last year, Hot 97 personality Ebro, host of Ebro in the Morning, traded shots with 6ix9ine after the rapper berated Ebro on "Stoopid."

The executive states  that unless there's a public uproar that demands the station to play an overly successful song, then the company would consider it.
