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.

The 50 Cent the rap world has come to know and love (or hate) has been one who’s rather obnoxious, vengeful and consistently willing to beef with anyone who comes his way. But, in a recent interview with MTV News, 50 talked about his mentor Dr. Dre, their recording process, and why the fu** Dre just won’t put out Detox. In the interview, 50 explained his time in the lab with Dre - “When I walk in the studio, I record the first [beat] that comes on regardless if I think it’s a hit record or not. We get in work mode, get comfortable and go through the material that’s in the computer. Dre always has hit records. Sometimes, artists that need producers, they need someone to create a direction for them musically. I need the jewels he’s just got laying around. He don’t gotta tell me what to do with it.”Further, when 50 was asked about Detox, he explained, “Hopefully he get it done and put it out. I’m waiting for the Detox.” Yet another artist drops his two cents, and gives patient fans no timeline or hope. If this album ever drops, I think it’s cause for a national holiday…perhaps Dre Day?Look out for 50′s Before I Self-Destruct and Dr. Dre’s Detox to drop before 2009.
Just 13 days after the patiently-awaited Untitled finally dropped, Nas is planning on staying busy in the near future. In an interview last week, Nas said he’d like to do an entire album with DJ Premier, an entire album with Dr. Dre, and drop them both on the same day. Though Nas hasn’t collaborated with DJ Premier in quite some time, the two seem to still have a mutual respect for one another and a working relationship that could actually possibly make this happen. As far as Dre, he’s been one of the most quiet producers in the game over the past years, and that album may be a little harder to see through. Regardless, to add onto Nas’s tall order, he told MTV he’d like to do an entire album with Kelis. Whether or not these exclusive collaborations will ever see the light of day remains to be seen, but after dropping Hip Hop is Dead and Untitled, you can’t really count Nas out.
Is Game coming out the face with this line in his joint with Lil Wayne? This line is coming from the leaked track My Pain which hit the net this week. I guess he never got a response from Dre, so now he is going after Em? Thoughts, opinions, comments..leave them all below. All the pictures of me and Em, I burned them/so there ain’t no proof I walked through 8 Mile/ And so since it ain’t no proof, I’ll never walk through 8 Mile/ sometimes I think about my life with my face down/ then I see my sons and put on my Kanye smile
