It’s not as savage as DOA, but it’s very much needed. All I gotta say is that all these rappers (except Stat, Dre and Cashis) all are suckers for putting their pop hook foot forward when it comes to album release time. I’m a huge fan of clearing out the closet records, but we need an album of this nature to really galvanise the position of these artists. Shout out to Dynamo for putting us on!
The front page of TheHipHopChronicle.com is as good today as ever… here’s a clip with one of my favourite rappers I saw on the site. The man who we connect with Big Pun through, reflects on his time doing the deed with the Doc.
Eminem feat Dr. Dre – ‘For Old Times Sake’ [Download], from the soon to be platinum Relapse Album, (shoot, if whackness like Rick Ross can sell 150k first week, Eminem will be platinum plus in his first month)
DAYUM, DAYUM, DAAAYUUUMM. Slim is back like a mu***f**k*r!!!
What do you think to THAT?!?!?! I’m gonna burn this to a CD all by its damn self!
According to various online sources – Andre Young Jr, son of legendary Hip-Hop producer Dr Dre, was found dead in his Woodland CA home by his mother. We hope it’s not true, but in the event that it is, our thoughts go out to the whole Young family.
Brilliant interview with Bishop Lamont (Lil’ Wayne x 10 in 2009?) my big homey DJ Skee!
You can also hear some of the single ‘Finally’ produced by Dr Dre.
Not that we’re war mongers, but we felt it was right to report that Hip-Hop’s big bad wolf, Suge Knight, was knocked to the ground this past Saturday at Shag Nightclub, according to TMZ.com [full story].
Right on the pulse, TMZ.com reported:
“As we first reported, Suge was at Shag nightclub when he began arguing with a man he had been talking with. Our spy overheard Suge say, “I want my money!” Suge and his peeps beat the guy to the ground, but the man landed a right hook on Suge’s face, knocking him out for around three minutes.”
True to his persona, Suge Knight, former Death Row Records CEO, home to Tupac, Snoop and Dre, did not press charges. I’ve not known of a well publicised beating for Suge so we hope the repercussions aren’t too extreme.
According to our homies at HipHopDX, and MTV’s Sucka Free Blog, legendary Rap Video Show, Yo! MTV Raps, which served as an institution to many 90’s Hip-Hop heads, including lovesoul, is making a return in April 2008 to celebrate it’s birth 20 years ago. Here is a clip that exemplifies the importance of this show (we think it should be brought back ASAP, with all the old school artists…and T.I, Little Brother, Lil Wayne, Talib, etc…)
Airing on MTV’s broadcast channels and website, you will be able to catch re-runs of classic interviews with Ed Lover, Dr Dre and Fab 5 Freddy, as well as all important video playlists. [Note to UK readers… don’t get your hopes up, the ‘music lovers’ at MTV.com block content from being viewed outside the US, and there is no word on if MTV UK/Europe will get the scheduling].
Oh well, it’s a start anyways… could it be anything to do with DJ Kaypers ‘Bring Back Yo! MTV Raps’ mixtape? Who knows? But until then, read the review and get the download here. Know the ledge people.
