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 THATS 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.
