I’m a real big Bishop Lamont fan. If you don’t have his mixtapes you should check them out for sure. In this video he performs a snippet of the (supposed) new single off Dr. Dres highly anticipated album “Detox”. This song has me psyched. Listen to the beat! Also add the fact that Bishop Lamont is going at Game on this one and we might have a noise maker when this song officially drops. Which when it does will be in our audio section and available for DL immediately.
Aftermath artist Bishop Lamont recent gave up some much needed details on Dr. Dre’s next album “Detox”. According to him, we should be looking for a single by November and is anticipating a December release. He went further to explain that it had to be “turned in” sometime soon, which is the reasoning behind the prediction. Additional Reporting by Rashaan Meador
In 2006, rapper The Game released his second LP – The Doctor’s Advocate. Two years, one four-month trip to prison and countless struggles with estranged supporters Dr. Dre and 50 Cent later, The Game has dropped LAX. Hopping on the ubiquitous popular rapper manifesto, Game said this album would be his last, because he supposedly has nothing left to prove. However, the album – a 19-track feature-heavy compilation – is definitely not a high note for Game to leave off on. The album starts with a prayer from rap’s new preacher DMX, and just as quickly as you can press next, Game brings you the somber and boring “LAX Files.” A few skippable tracks later, Lil’ Wayne lends a T-Wayne singing feature to his West Coast cohort on “My Life.” Ultimately, this album is marred by poor production and boring lyricism by Game, save for a few tracks like “Dope Boys,” “Cali Sunshine” and “Angel.” On “Angel,” Game scores Kanye production and a Common feature for a cliché yet catchy ode to their leading lady – hip-hop. In previous albums, listeners looked forward to an entire album of hearing The Game’s witty lyricism and knocking production picks – no matter how vulgar or hard it got – because they knew what to expect. But on LAX, The Game enlists so many features (there are only three solo songs!) that any message he was trying to get across gets far too diluted and commercialized. If this truly is his last album – he better not expect to be mentioned in the same breath as Pac, Biggie and Jay-Z…or even Wheezy baby.
Yesterday saw over 200 people gather for the funeral of the 20 year old son of Dr, Dre. Andre Young Junior who was found unconscious last weekend by his mother after a night out. He was announced dead on arrival at hospital. The initial autopsy which took place this week was however inconclusive as to the cause of death, encouraging further toxicology and tests to be done.
In a post from a few days ago, iHipHop reported that Suge Knight was incarcerated in Las Vegas. Less than two days later, Suge has been released. The big man posted $19,000 bail and was released from Clark County Jail. Supposedly the incident started when Suge was with his girlfriend, and cops found Suge standing over his girlfriend with a knife, and she was soon after sent to a hospital. Suge was also supposedly in possession of Ecstasy and Hydrocodone at the time of his arrest. He’ll also be back to check into Las Vegas on September 26th for a court date to deal with the charges. Check back to iHipHop for updates.
It has been reported that an LA Coroner announced the death of Dr. Dre’s son Andre Young Jnr yesterday. Allegedly the twenty year old son of the Aftermath label boss was found unconscious by his Mother in the early hours of Saturday morning after he had returned home after a night out. The cause of death is so far unknown but toxicology reports carried out by the LA Coroners officer will become available later this week.
Seriously the ego has landed. We had Jay Z last week and now the Compton rapper is saying that Dre’s project would be an ‘injustice to the producer if it didn’t feature him (Game). As according to Game himself, he quite simply is..the West Coast. I truly hope for his sake LAX is his best album to date as for all the trash this dude is talking you know people are just waiting in the wings to take aim at him.
