Veteran Atlanta DJ Greg Street has teamed with West Coast rapper Glasses Malone to conceptualize a Dr.Dre-based mixtape entitled 2010.
Originally dubbed Beats By Dre, the 2010 project focuses on bringing together the new generation of West Coast talent to rhyme over the classic production of Dres The Chronic and 2001 albums.
Greg Street came to me with a crazy idea, at first it was going be titled, Beats by Dre, Malone told AllHipHop.com in a statement. Street said this CD would probably be one of the biggest mixtapes ever. I did some real street sh*t that the West Coast and the world would love, on some Chronic/NWA street sh*t.
The 2010 mixtape features appearances from D.O.C., Mistah FAB, Jay Rock, Bangloose, 211, Roccett, K Boy, Big U, OG Muggs, Crib Kev, Black Diamond, and Wayne Hustle.
Even with a plethora of hungry emcees to choose from, Greg Street explained to AllHipHop.com that Malone was always his main choice to host the project.
I knew this mixtape would be classic and Glasses was the guy who could pull the whole thing off, Street stated. Dude is so dope on his verses and concepts for the songs. We’ve worked on this since January and hope you will like it. The message is real and from my heart. Dr. Dre is definitely one of if not the best to do this. His journey and story is incredible. I really hope Dre likes what we did on his beats. It’s all part of the Greg Street stimulus plan, the big bail out on Hip-Hop!
On the sports end, Greg Street will host the 2009 Atlanta Amateur Boxing Championships at the Metro Fitness Sports Complex.
The family-oriented event takes place on April 25-26, with fights running from noon-8PM on both days.
The event will showcase several divisions, including kids (8-16 years old), seniors (17-34 years old), and novice (17-34 years old with less than 10 bouts).
