Itâ€™s been a pretty dull week on the Westside, so thereâ€™s not a ton of Random S#!t to talk about, but we got a couple things here...
First off, an unauthorized Dr. Dre biography will be coming out in early â€˜07 from author Ronin Ro, who has written books about Sean â€œP Diddy-Breastmilks-Puff Daddy-Puffy-Diddy-Puffâ€ Combs, Run DMC and Death Row Records. While the book will cover Dreâ€™s NWA days, his flops, his successes, his relationships with The Game, 50 and Snoop, and facets of his personal life, it will reportedly not include any solid evidence that Detox will be released in the next decade, or whether or not the album was dreamed up by Dre to torture his fans with its forever-nonexistent release date.
In other Dre-affiliated news, for all the haters in the East who come on here on some â€œfuck the West coast, blah blah blahâ€ type of shit, our boy Dre just stole another one of your rappers. Welcome to Aftermath, Raekwon.
In other Aftermath news, The Game used to be on Aftermath. And his publicist emailed me the cover to The Doctor's Advocate. And it's boring as shit. You'll see...
And in other â€œused to be on Aftermathâ€ news, I did an interview with Xzibit this week, which Iâ€™ll be posting early next week. Be on the lookout for that.
After rapping about killing cops and then playing a cop on TV, the West Coast OG Ice-T will be hosting the VH1 Hip Honors awards on October 17th; Iâ€™m sure everyoneâ€™s seen and heard about it already, Iâ€™m just reminding you to mark your calendars. And before you open your mouth about â€œIce-T thisâ€ or â€œIce-T that,â€ go back and listen to "Power" again and then rethink your actions. Besides, dude had a fishtank with sharks in it behind him during his interview in Rhyme and Reason.
In other Ice-T news, his new reality show â€œIce Tâ€™s Rap Schoolâ€ looks like itâ€™s going to be the new ridiculous shit, on what is quickly becoming the Ridiculous Shit Channel, VH1. Although Iâ€™m sure itâ€™s impossible to reach the grotesque-but-canâ€™t-look-away heights that your boy Flavor Flav reached with his fiery, mangled, car wreck of a reality show, but lord knows VH1 is trying.
Last but not least, if you live in the Bay and you havenâ€™t gone to the B.A.R.S. (Bay Area Rap Scene) Awards website at www.barsawards.com to vote for one of the 927 thousand categories they have on there, do it now. The awards will take place on Dec. 2nd.
Be easy, and have a good weekend.
