Dre is really feeling hip hop and wants everyone else to feel it, too. In this EXCLUSIVE preview of the March 2 episode of black-ish, Dre presents his latest ad idea to the team. He explains how the ad starts with a shot of a sandwich, and a dad later taking a bite of the sandwich. When the dad takes the bite, he wants Biggie Smalls’ hit “Hypnotize” to be playing.
When Dre plays the iconic song, he thinks his idea is a total hit. “My special set of skills was getting it done yet again,” Dre says. “I had them eating out of the palm of my hand! I was hip hop and hip hop was me. And we were both going to live forever.” Charlie’s feeling it, and so is Josh.
Suddenly, Dre notices that other members of the team are laughing at him. This takes Dre by surprise. It was not the reaction he was expecting. Dre may need to catch up with the times. No disrespect to Biggie, though.
The synopsis for the March 2 episode reads: “In trying to prove to Diane that hip-hop isn’t dead, Dre realizes he may be more out of touch with current trends and his clients than he thought. Meanwhile, Jack thinks that he has somehow become Bow’s best friend now that Junior is too busy with his new girlfriend.”
