Song of the Day:
Hip-hop legend Dr. Dre was born on this day. He's done pretty much everything in the business, from turning the industry on its head with N.W.A. and Death Row Records, to having a longevity that few have been able to sustain. His production work is impeccable, and I picked my favorite track he's produced. This is one of my favorite instrumental tracks of all-time in hip-hop, "How We Do" by The Game.
