I'll let The Trauma House explain:
A tribute to one of the most influential figures in rap history. With a career spanning from 1984 to the present and over 80 million records sold, Dre has left a lasting mark on the music industry. As the anticipation grows for his upcoming release Detox, this Dre vs. Dre mashup takes you on a journey through works of one of hip-hop's greatest producers. This megamix features some of Dr. Dre's most memorable videos remixed with his own catalog of classic beats. Sprinkle in some rare footage and hard to find samples, and we present to you the smoked out odyssey that is... The Chronic, 2011.
Multi-coastal lyricist Sum - whose Nobody Hole, The Lil Folk and Lone Wolf albums have gained him an international cult following - is leader of The Milky Way, an L.A.-based collective that specializes in a sound best described as post-millennial funk. On bass and keys is P.U.D.G.E., the NYC producer/emcee who made his name at L.A.'s Low End Theory weekly, another member of a lineup that comprises college buddies, play cousins, childhood friends and even a married couple. Also on keys is Computer Jay, who first struck out with a contribution on ArtDontSleep's From LA With Love compilation. X-Man, X-Ro, Taurus Hamilton, DJ Cee Brown, Vocabutrois & Lil Mis round out this gathering of stars. Here they present the video to the title track of their Black Magic EP. "This song is unique because it's the first full song we composed from scratch as The Milky Way, two summers ago," says Sum. "Everything else we'd done up to that was just rehashes of old material. It was the clear winner for our first video, everybody's involved. We brought along talented family, Chris Clarke kickin in the door for us and Chicago's own Airon Azure on the chorus. Pure energy."
