Drake

Soren Baker and I couldn't wait to get into this week's hip-hop news topics. After waiting for more than 10 years for Dr. Dre to release "Detox," the legendary beatsmith has announced his plans to extend his leave of absence. The Aftermath venting was in order. Our review of Drake's "Take Care" album finds the Young Money rapper focusing on way too much lounge music. And we examine Snoop Dogg's ability to portray a 15-year-old in his forthcoming movie with Wiz Khalifa, "Mac + Devin Go To High School."

The conversation picks up when we take on the last three topics — Prince Paul's "Negroes On Ice Tour," Trina's N-word etiquette for Kreayshawn and V-Nasty, and Common's new music video for "Sweet."

Use the comment section below to let us know if you agree with our assessments.
