On Friday night (29th November) Supreme Team hosted The Game’s official birthday celebration dubbed the “Black Friday Affair.”

Los Angeles was out in force to help celebrate with Game, who recently released his acclaimed “OKE (Operation Kill Everything)” mixtape right here on DubCNN.

Wiz Khalifa, Ty$, Too Short, Joe Moses and Laura Govan were in the mix and the crowd enjoyed the bottle parade as Wiz kept the bottles of Ace of Spades flowing – while Game opted for Dom Dom Pérignon Luminous.

Game didn’t perform – but did thank everyone for coming out – instead Ty$ took to the stage to rock the crown with a performance of his hit single, “Paranoid” which featured on his “Beach House 2” mixtape.

Earlier this year we introduced PALMSTARS – a trio from the small West LA neighborhood of Palms – with their debut mixtape, “Palmstars.”

That release – hosted by DJ Nik Bean – featured Price of My Soul and set-up their key single “Like Adios” featuring Fashawn – for which they dropped this video.

Today the group have turned their attention to the recent devastation in the Philippines, releasing a dedication track and video to the typhoon victims.

Compton sensation, Young Hootie aka YG Hootie first appeared on Dubcnn in 2005 when with Larceny Entertainment.

That period saw him release“Prince Of The Bity” which earned a 3 out of 5 Dubcnn Review rating and a spot as Unsigned Hype in The Source Magazine.

In 2007 he dropped the solo mixtape The Culmination featuring Tiny Doo, G. Malone, Problem, Kila Krock, El Dorado Red and B-Dot before dropping a remix over the Sean Kingston record “Take You There” [Take You There Remix] produced by J.R. Rottem.

Last year Hootie was back on the scene alongside Bay Area rapper A-Wax for a project entitled “Interstate Trafficking” via BSM/Illburn Records – the project featured tracks LA 2 The BayMake Room featuring Brick Squad head honcho Gucci Mane as well as videos for Doin’ Something Wrong and No Compass.

Today Bricksquad Monopoly’s YG Hootie has confirmed he will drop a new solo project, entitled “Destroy & Rebuild,” on February 4th, 2014. The first track from the release sees him enlist Top Dawg’s fellow Compton MC Kendrick Lamar where they depict both of their personas in relation to the great leaders Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. As individuals, they were Presidential in their own right. Both leaders shared the same perspectives but took a different approach fundamentally.

“Two Presidents” is produced  Bravestarr and can be heard below!
