Production has grown beyond Shawty Redd's format. People think that any track with heavy 808's and alot of hihats is trap music, but that's real narrow-minded thinking.
And lol @ Marley Marl and Dre. There has been incredible music every year, some more than others. One monkey don't stop no show. It ain't like Dre is producing or writing his own music anyway. If "I Need A Doctor" is supposed to be the blueprint, then the game is in trouble bigtime.
