It’s hard to believe that Dr. Dre dropped his classic album The Chronic 15 years ago. The milestone makes this year’s Dre Day celebrations a tad more important than previous years, so you can expect some awesome parties across the nation. With Chicago having one of the more notable celebrations annually, Go Ill & Burlesque of North America will once again throw their version at the Double Door in Wicker Park. This event will feature performances from Psalm One, Altered Tapes, Lowdown Brass Band, AwDazCate and many more. As usual, these performances will be laced with renditions of Dre’s classic records, for fans who still love The Chronic 15 years later. This one’s 18+ and advance tickets are going for $12 ($15 @ door); click to grab yours.

Raised by Minneapolis it sometimes slips my mind that i was actually born underneath the grey skies of Detroit, Michigan. One thing the D has always had going for itself is it’s music scene, whether it be for MoTown of yesterday or Big Sean of today someone always seems to be making noise. Legendary Detroit MC Eminem announced that he will be releasing his next project entitled “MMLP2” on November 5th, the production should be absolutely nuts as Rick Rubin & Dr. Dre have been summoned. The streets are buzzing with anticipation because we all know what the original MMLP (Marshall Mathers LP) was like, it’s just a matter of whether Eminem can deliver another Hip Hop classic.
