Dr. Dre ft. Eminem & Skylar Grey - I Need a Doctor

Posted 5 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Alex Da Kid
Album:
Detox

When I see a track that has Dr. Dre’s name associated with Detox, I can’t help but roll my eyes. However, when I saw the names Eminem and Skylar Grey (co-writer of Love the Way You Lie) attached to new leak I Need a Doctor, I had to hear more. Shortly following previous leak Kush, Need a Doctor is produced by Alex Da Kid, who crafts a beat that features some heavy snare hits and low bass drums, with some poppy electronic synth sounds to keep the record Top 40 eligible. Although the effects are kind of cheesy, they serve their purpose as Grey unleashes a catchy hook while Eminem typically rips the mic. As far as Dre’s rapping, maybe the 10 year hiatus has me expecting his Chronic flow, but it feels like the good Dr. may have waited too long and lost his touch. Will Doctor appear on Detox, or the re-release of Eminem’s Recovery, as rumors suggest?  Will Detox ever come out? Will mainstream America eat this song up or trash it? We’ve got questions, now let’s hear your answers.

Update: I Need a Doctor is the second single off Dre’s Detox.
