Jul 26 Word of the Day
Noun: a friend who is usually only called upon by a friend when a more primary/prominent friend is unavailable.

Taken from the term “second string” in an athletic competition situation. In football, if the star quarterback gets injured during a play, the second string is called off the bench to replace him/her. A “Second String Friend” is essentially benched until needed, if ever.

Synonyms: Plan B, Second Choice, Secondary Friend, Benched Until Needed
I got a call from X the other night. She had an extra ticket to a concert she bought for a friend, but they couldn’t make it so she called me to ask if I wanted to go because I am her Second String Friend.

Dr.Dre is not only the most influential producer in hip-hop, he is probably the reason that hip-hop will have to redefine what it means to be a producer. Today, everyone thinks that hip-hop means "beat-maker". But many Producers of music are not beat-makers. Instead they are the brains behind those who make the music and develop the lyrics. This is Dre...and he's a beatmaker. Every artist who has worked with Dre seems to testify that Dre does much more than bring in tracks and records with them. Dre seems to be involved with every element from blueprinting the "layout" of the album, to helping the artist write and arrange their lyrics for the tracks, to editing tracks done by other beat-makers, to making his own beats for the artist. That's a producer -- and that is what Dr.Dre brings to the table of not just his labelists, but the hip-hop industry as a whole.

Dr. Dre was first known when he started making music in a group known as the ''World Class Wreckin' Kru''. He then moved on to the gangsta rap super group called N.W.A. Here it was made obvious that he was a much better producer than a rapper and after the group split up, he made his own music with the help of Snoop Dogg, Suge Knight and many other producers and artists. After making albums like 'The Chronic' and '2001' he was known as the best rap/hip hop producer ever, and still is today, the only other producer who would stand a chance against his skill is DJ Premier, but in my eyes he still is and always will be the best producer ever.

With Easy-E and Ice Cube in NWA back in the day, CREATED this whole game. Everything from 50 cent to DMX, whatever rap u listen to, wouldn't EXIST without Dre and NWA starting the gangster rap scene.
