Dr. Dre

The Message (5:04)

The Message is the last song from Dr. Dre's album 2001, closing out the album. It is dedicated to his deceased brother, Tyree. The lyrics were ghostwritten by rapper Royce da 5'9". Controversy followed when this information came out, as the subject matter of the song is very personal and it wasn't even written by Dre.

  • Ahh, the chronic. ;__;
  • beat is mindblowing
  • Even though this was written by Royce, Dre still has the final decision to edit whichever lyrics he likes!
  • I agree with @projectpat42066 ... Mary J Blige was the right one to do the vocals for this track.
  • An excellent and very personal track by Dre. How good is that !?
  • The obligatory one great song on the album that actually shows some personality beyond bragging about how awesome Dr. Dre is.
  • Lord Finesse did an amazing job making this beat. He even did Suicidal Thoughts which was also a outro.
  • The"" GOOD DOCTOR"" at his Finest!
  • re: projectpat's comment.. pretty true, especially for this song :) .. and then there is Ms Badu.
  • in its way, this is the most badass track on the album
