Thursdayz 4 Wordplay : Dr. Dre, Pete Rock & Kurupt Collab On Freestyle Session

No this isn’t anything big, it’s ONLY one of the dopest freestyle sessions from three of hip hop’s greatest talents – Pete Rock, Dr. Dre and Kurupt. The freestyle recently was debuted on Dre’s Beats 1 radio show, The Pharmacy. At this point we will just be grateful for anything that Dr. Dre releases (musically), because as we all know he’s very protective over his music vault!









Album Review : Dr. Dre – ‘Compton’ (A Soundtrack By Dr. Dre)

We are not even mad at this, because the good doctor from the west coast delivered big once again. No, it’s not the long-awaited ‘Detox’ album, which would now be dubbed as a golden unicorn or some sort myth. But we still can’t complain because Dr. Dre captures the sound and emotions of west coast music and most importantly, the soul and passion that we are supposed to feel when we watch the upcoming film ‘Straight Outta Compton’. This album is a solid piece of work which offers appearances from some of Dre’s most prolific collaborators — such as Eminem, Marsha Ambrosius, Snoop Dogg, The Game and Xzibit. Overall, the California king ends a long hiatus (16 years) and bring a new batch of G-funk that will not disappoint.

Rumor has it that this movie hits the mark when it comes to authenticity of NWA’s legacy and quality. But how can you go wrong with F. Gary Gray, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre on the same squad??

There’s a good answer for that…

you can’t.

Random Thought: A Full-length Nas & Busta Rhymes Album Could Really Work!

We take into consideration that this thought comes out of nowhere but while we’re here, just think about it for a minute. Both Nas and Busta have been in the game over 20 years and also share the same high level of passion for the art of rap that you couldn’t go wrong with a complete album from these guys. If we look back over time, we’ll rediscover the fact that both artists have flown under the wing of the legendary Dr Dre as well as Timbaland. Just that last statement alone should speak volumes for the two New Yorkers — Nas hails from Queens and Busta Rhymes claims Brooklyn. As we build on the concept of Busta and Nas recording an album together, the track feature directly below will tell you all you need to know if this were to actually materialize. Besides, we all have our own take of who’d we like to see collaborate…. so what’s yours??

50 Cent : From The Bottom To The Top

By now we’ve all heard about 50 Cent’s epic journey from running the streets while being heavy in the drug game, to becoming one of the most successful rap artists and entrepreneurs of our time. But truth be told, 50 Cent is smarter than you think and he didn’t get to where he is now by being a slouch. He’s spent countless sleepless nights into making himself an unstoppable money making and trendsetting machine. At this point in time, there is one key fact that stands apparent… he’s here to stay whether you like it or not!

Hands down Fif’ is one of the realest dudes to ever do it. Whether you like him or not, there’s no denying that he REALLY did live what he raps about and his story is so heartfelt because he got shot 9 times and lived to tell the story.

Busta Rhymes : Past, Present, & Future

If you are a fan of rap, then most likely at some point in time, you’ve heard a song or two by Busta Rhymes. One of the most animated and charismatic emcees to ever do it, Busta has earned his stripes and has been a trailblazer in the rap game. Starting his career out as a member of Leaders of the New School, it wasn’t long after that he discovered being in the group was good but he had too much to offer to the world and it was a no-brainer in making the decision to go solo. After being a dominating force for well over 20 years, we an expect Busta Rhymes to stay around a little longer… besides, don’t we all tend to wonder what he’s gonna do next?

Throwback Joint: 50 Cent – ‘U Not Like Me’

It was late in the year of 2002, and Dr Drè had people in amazement as he and Eminem teamed up to bring the streets 50 Cent and his first official studio album. Many music fans were skeptical about the album being anything more than a few freestyles made into complete songs. But to everyone’s surprise, Fif crafted an instant classic and this track, ‘U Not Like Me’, was one of the first songs off that album to be leaked. After all, you can’t be mad at the guy who coined the term ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’… it has a certain ring to it!

Video: Ice Cube Revisits His Debut Solo Album, Discusses Relationship With Dr. Dre & Eazy E

The legendary and multi-talented Ice Cube recently chopped it up with NYC’s Hot97 Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg.  Ice gave an insightful interview as he highlighted the early days of his career while he was a part of NWA and his classic first album, ‘Amerikkka’s Most Wanted’.  Still to this day, people are intrigued at the fact that he came to New York with the idea of having one or two songs produced by an east coast producer, but ended up having his whole album produced  by the Bomb Squad, who were well known for crafting the sounds for Public Enemy.  In addition, he clears up misconceptions about apparent beef with former group mates, namely Drè and Eazy-E.

Throwback Joint: Tha Dogg Pound – ‘N***as Don’t Give A F**k’

Everytime the conversation arises pertaining to the hottest soundtracks ever to assist a classic movie, people tend to forget that the ‘Poetic Justice’ soundtrack went hard too. Tupac Shakur starred in the movie alongside the lovely Janet Jackson and he blessed the soundtrack with some memorable verses as well. Here’s a mighty fine contribution made by The Dogg Pound to the same classic soundtrack.
