Published Dec 28, 2010Following Dr. Dre's recent "Topless" leak, another star-studded rap collaboration has hit the Web. Along with Eminem and Dre, the track called "Syllables" features Jay-Z and 50 Cent, alongside Stat Quo and Ca$his.
The rappers take the mic atop a classic-sounding Dre beat, all creepy pianos and firecracker snares. Their subject matter is somewhat self-reflective as they take on their pop-obsessed listeners who don't care about the actual lyrics to their favourite rap songs, instead hoping for catchy hooks and club-ready beats. The irony of this song dropping after Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie" became one of the biggest hits of the year is definitely a little much, but the sheer star power of this track makes it a worthwhile listen.
The song is most likely going to be on Dre's seemingly closer Detox album. It can be streamed below or downloaded here via Nah Right.
