Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg steam up the club in 'Kush' video: Watch here

Dr-Dre-KushOkay, so now I’m actually starting to believe Dr. Dre‘s Detox is coming soon. “Kush,” the album’s lead single leaked online last month and positive feedback demanded they run with it. Acting fast, the video was released this morning. The legendary California producer teams up with singer Akon and frequent collaborator Snoop Dogg here. In the clip Dre and Snoop hit the club to spark up some fun while Akon makes it rain in a private jet cruising over the city. Visually, it’s an interesting video. The trio are the only ones moving in the majority of it. Motionless party-goers are seen enjoying various facets of after hours fun, be it exhaling puffs of smoke, knocking back a drink, or dancing. Flight attendants are frozen, as is the cash Akon tosses up on his plane.

The camera work is not untraveled territory, though. T-Pain’s recent “Rap Song” features the style. As does Usher’s “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love” with slow motion and rewinding at times. But Dre’s has a Cali-cool vibe that’s all its own.

Check out the video after the jump and let us know what you think. But beware: the language is NSFW.

    The video is okay, but Akon’s voice just irritates the crap out of me in this song. I just can’t get past that.

    With all of the autotone taking place in music now a days, hip hop is the only genre of music where the voices of the artists are truly their own. Akon’s voice does not sound human in this song. You could just as well hire a robot as a replacement for this guy. No one would be able to tell the difference.
