T.I. Teams with Dr. Dre for Aaliyah ‘Dope’ Tribute

By Annie Reuter

T.I. has paid tribute to the late Aaliyah with “Dope,” a new track produced by Dr. Dre.

Last week, the Atlanta-based rapper said new music was on the way and he didn’t let his fans down. The track showcases T.I. rapping over an Aaliyah “Rock the Boat” sample alongside sultry harmonies from Marsha Ambrosius.

“Truth is for real, feel like Dre and Pharrell / Mixed with Eric B and Rakim shorty, hell on a scale / And still the game enticing me, like every time I see her / They like to pop a seal, high enough to see Aaliyah,” he raps on the first verse.

Later, he closes the track by saying, “Aaliyah, we miss you.”

“Dope” follows the release of Tip’s single “Money Talk.” On the track, he raps about overcoming his haters. Both songs are rumored to be featured on his forthcoming album, The Dime Trap.
