The Black Hippy/TDE movement is obviously very exciting because we are watching Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock and Ab Soul develop from underground Hip Hop heads to the next people out of Dr. Dre’s camp. Well after the jump peep TDE’s production duo Digi-Phonics discussing working with Kendrick Lamar and getting Dr. Dre’s blessing with Noisey.

Dr. Dre announces that the Tupac Hologram was only for Coachella. Sort of.
Disappointed? Do It Yourself. After the jump learn how to make your own Tupac Hologram!!
In the days since, it’s been confirmed that Holo-Pac was “Dr. Dre’s Vision,” and now the good doctor admits that he hopes to see the technology spread. TMZ caught up with Dre in Los Angeles, where he graciously — and enthusiastically — answered questions about the hologram, which has been described as his brainchild. Dre didn’t give any predictions for how popular hologram performances might become, but he did reveal the next step, in terms of technology.
Yesterday, Kendrick Lamar ‘s song “The Recipe” that featured Dr. Dre and sampled Twin Sister’s “Meet the Frownies” had the internet all Paul Wall. I am impressed that the TDE/Aftermath camp didn’t use a big song like MGMT’s “Electric Feel”, Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks” or like a Radiohead song. But instead they took a bit of a fairly obscure indie rock group like Twin Sister. Don’t get me wrong Twin Sister had one of the best records of last year but still…
Kendrick Lamar ft. Dr. Dre “The Recipe” (produced by Scoop Deville)
L+T: Why’d you sample Twin Sister?
SD: I was on my way to airport when I heard this song on KCRW, an indie radio station in LA– it was a premiere for their single called “Meet The Frownies.” As soon as that record kicked in, it already had me captivated. Then that voice came on–”Smokin’ weeed with youuuu…” It just did something to me where I had a “hip-hop producer moment,” like almost the same feeling when Eminem dropped “Stan” and everybody was like what sample is that? Musically and production-wise, it was incredible that it could bring something new and fresh to hip-hop. My appreciation of true art and great music is how that happened. Twin Sister, the Universe connected us through music.
Twin Sister “Meet the Frownies”
Twin Sister, whose “Meet The Frownies” was sampled: “The idea of Dr. Dre hearing something that we made makes my head explode. Scoop’s work on the track is inspiring, he used sounds we made as a tool to help him create his own world. We are all about that. Doesn’t hurt that Kendrick Lamar is amazing either. Section 80 was great, can’t wait for the new record.”
Kendrick Lamar drops “the Recipe” with Dr. Dre. I think that sentence pretty much says it. Oh, yeah the hook is ode to Cali’s “Women, Weed & Weather”. This is off Kendrick Lamar’s upcoming album on TDE/Aftermath/Interscope.
Well, I guess my theory that Dipset will be part of a new launch of Roc-a-fella is completely off. It looks likes rumors of Dipset on being on Interscope might be a reality?
Jim Jones tweeted today that they just got out of the studio with Dr. Dre?
interesting that appherently as rich as Dre is, he only owns one Nautica shirt, and wore it to both Jay-z and Dipset record sessions?
