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.
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.
Always one to encourage a change here and there, Snoop Dogg is looking to star in a Bollyhood movie after recording a track for the soundtrack of Singh is Kinng which will be hitting the big screen in August. The movie was directed by Anees Bazmee and was filmed primarily on location in Australia, a country which has mixed opinions of the Long Beach rapper. However Snoop hopes that his contribution to the up and coming movie will allow him present himself to India as more than a rapper. Snoop has already been cast in various movies in the US including Baby Boy, Training Day, The Wash and Soul Plane.
