Dr. Dre & Mary J. Blige – The Message


Off Dre’s second studio album “2001”, this song was preformed as a tribute to his deceased brother “Tyree Du Sean Crayon” as a message to God. Interestingly it was originally written by Royce Da 5’9″. Royce actually had wrote it for a friend of his who had been shot without knowing about Dre’s brother. Dre resonated with the lyrics and brought in Mary on the hook for his rendition. This song was distinctly different from the rest of the album. You can hear some of that underlying passion come through in his voice.

Dope jam.
