Hip-Hop Rumors: Who Am I? The New N.W.A.?

FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC – TAKE A GUESS?

Well, this is a rumor that I fear may hold a bit of truth. I preface

this with a definitive “I don’t know for sure.” Honestly, I cannot say

names, but I will create a fictional “Who Am I” to help you guess:

“Rumors are swirling that I have been dropped from my wildly

successful record label. I have been relatively successful in living

the glamorous life like Cool C, but according to these snakes in the

industry, my sales have not quite measured up to the opulence. As an

artist, I am still very viable and for the haters, my man is more than

capable of taking care of me until I get a new deal. I have been in the

game, I have established a brand and I have fans that love me. Those

damn bloggers will not leave me alone! Keep clucking, chickenheads – I

will bounce back! WHO AM I?”

THE NEW N.W.A.?

Despite our collective willingness to respect the old school of

Hip-Hop, we want to regain the spirit of those Golden Days. Well, the

offspring of rappers are taking this notion seriously and why not? They

are the legacy that Hip-Hop has yet to reveal. Take Hood Surgeon, the

son of Dr. Dre or Lil’ Eazy-E, the son of the late, great Eric Wright.

Rumor has it, these two young G’s are in the process of forming a “new”

N.W.A. As far as the legalities, I don’t know how they will do it. When

it comes to the essential elder co-sign, I don’t know how they will

pull that off either. The Game was holding that torch at one point, but

neither of these men get along with their fellow Compton rapper. I’m

interested in finding out if the other N.W.A. members, Ice Cube, MC Ren

(The Villain In Black) and DJ Yella, have children willing to

contribute to the cause; I guess we’ll see, huh?

QUICKIE – FLAVOR OF LOVE IS BACK!

THAT’S RIGHT FOLKS! The new season of “Flavor of Love” has been

formally recorded, wrapped and will begin airing in August. From the

images floating online, the chicks look as interesting as the last

bunch. Still, there is no standout like Hoopz or New York.

ILL VID – KOOL CHIP & CHUCK CHILLOUT!

This was the jam back in the day! Notice I said “jam” to describe it?

Now THAT’S old school! Seriously, this was a huge song back in the day

and very commercial. I have no idea what happened to these guys as a

rap team, but they sure made a creative duo for at least one album.
