Inside The Vault: Dr Dre and Death Row Records
The mysterious Aftermath Vault holds thousands of recordings.
Dre doesn’t release them because he doesn’t own the masters to all of them. Dre is also a notorious perfectionist.
This is the original beat for the Next Episode.
It was made around the time The Chronic was recorded (92/93). Sounds like its unmastered, but the beat is still an instant classic.
Crooked I signed to Deathrow Records (Tha Row) before Suge declared bankruptcy.
Because Suge owned some of Dre’s masters, it was perfectly legal for him to use this beat. (I think he sold the masters to WIDEawake, 2 years ago).
