I was priveleged enough to be with Scipio, Warrior, Strong, Da Riffs and others when they were filming a DVD. During that time, I was able to sit down and do a quick interview with Scipio. We talk about his outlook on his career, Ras Kass, the state of Los Angeles Hip Hop and much more. On top of that, I was also able to grab the producer team of the moment Da Riffs and get an interview with them, too. As you can see with Coast Control, they do most of the production on these mixtapes and, as you'll hear in the interview, they handle tons of production for Video Games. We speak about who they've worked with, plan on working with, their musical tastes and more. Peep those interviews out, as audio for the moment, and don't forget to cop DJ Warrior's mixtapes and support Scipio and Da Riffs also!

news 1104883334 - December 31, 1969 By : Damn that was quick huh... Told ya'll I'll be back with more news about the upcoming Suga Free album "Just Add Water" which they have just started working on. My homie grafikpimp was present at one of their studio sessions at Kenny McCloud's studios the other day and got some info and pictures for our visitors right here at the Dub.

Also look for the first single to be premiered here around the end of the 1st quarter of 2005. The guest appearances for the album aren't confirmed yet, but look for some hot names... What I've heard has been very promising. We're also going to be conducting a video interview with the Neighbourhood Playa Patna himself, so lookout for that coming soon.

Suga Free was in the lab with his crew, including producer Freeze who had produced the unreleased song "Cool" which was buzzing all over, which didn't make Free's last album due to sample clearance. Also present were Kenny McCloud, Mike (Free's Cousin), Clue Dawg, J-Steez and more.

From what we heard, the song they layed down last night, produced by Freeze, and with Clue Dog on the hook, is sounding real promising, hopefully Free will deliver another banger with "Just Add Water"!

Check out some pictures below, and lookout for our video interview, which will clear up alot of rumours, including the situation with DJ Quik.

Pictures:

When I say the entire crew, I mean: 50 Cent, Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, Olivia, Mobb Deep, 40 Glocc, M.O.P., Mase, Big Twin, Spider Loc, DJ Whoo Kid & Alchemist. Tony Yayo wasn't present due to his parole situation. I rolled to the show with the homie DJ S.T.A.T.I.C., and the fresh Infamous/G-Unit signee 40 Glocc took us in. I was surprised about the very good atmosphere inside the camp, everybody seemed to be getting along and in a good mood. In the backstage area, Havoc, Prodigy, Lil Fame, Alchemist, 40 Glocc and more were eating, the latest DJ Whoo Kid mixtape banging through the speakers. Everybody was getting ready for the show, getting dressed, and focused before entering the stage in Karlsruhe, Germany.

About 15,000 fans were waiting outside for 50 Cent and his crew to rock the house. Those who have seen G-Unit in concert before know that they're not necessarily known to be very good performers, but I was hoping for Mobb Deep & M.O.P to rip it. As always, 50 started with "What Up Gangsta!" and then went through his hits, from his first album as well as "The Massacre". Although he has improved his stage performance, I have to say for an artist of his caliber, he has little to no stage presence, and he does the same hand movement throughout his whole set. With Young Buck and Lloyd Banks, his hype men during his verses, often being louder than him, you start to wonder what the crowd is going crazy about.

Mobb Deep get on stage after about half an hour and perform "Out Of Control" with 50, then do "Got It Twisted", "Shook Ones II" and "Quiet Storm". Afterwoods, Billy Danze & Lil Fame got on stage to do "Ante Up" and "Cold As Ice" and left. Throughout the one and a half hour performance, 50 also brought out Mase, who only did his verse off "Mo' Money Mo Problems" and exited the stage again. Olivia came out to perform "Candy Shop" aswell as her Jelly Roll-produced single "Twist It" with Lloyd Banks. Mobb Deep were the highlight to me, although Havoc did sound better on stage, while Prodigy was sometimes hard to hear. M.O.P. came with a lot of energy, too bad they only did two songs.

Roughly halfway through the show, Young Buck took the stage by himself for a chronic break, calling West Coast G-Unit artist Spider Loc to the front. Buck introduced Spider to Germany, as G-Units newest addition (although he was signed months prior to Mobb Deep, M.O.P. and Mase...) from the West Coast, and made the whole crowd put up their W's and yell out "Go Spider, Go Spider". Spider himself just chilled on stage, lit Buck's blunt and threw up his Dub's.

I can't forget to mention 50 Cent's shots at Game during the show neither. At some point he stopped the music and addressed the crowd. "If you got love for 50 Cent & the G-Unit, let me hear you say G-UNIIIT!", followed by everybody yelling "G-UNIT!". He continued his speech with "And if you don't got love for 50 Cent & the G-Unit, let me hear you say G-UNOOT!", followed by the crowd, alot of them obviously not realizing what 50 was saying, yelling out "G-UNOT!". I have to admit, the look on 50's face was priceless. As always, 50 added "Ok for all of those who yelled G-Unit, thank you for the support! For all those who yelled G-Unot, thank you too. Go pick up The Documentary, and make me rich! I make more money off Game's album than Game does! Haha! First me and Dre make money, before Game see's any money! So make me rich!". A woman in the front row screamed "Game is better than you!", which 50 laughed at and replied with "If Game was really better than me, he could do this..." and "In Da Club" started banging through the speakers, making the venue go crazy of course.

Overall, it was a pretty cool show, always good to see the M.O.B.B. and M.O.P., Young Buck is a good performer aswell. 50 has improved, but he still has a long way to go before he can be called a good performer.

After the concert, we caught up with the G-Unit crew at the hotel and at the afterparty, got some pictures for ya'll, aswell as some exclusive video drops.

news 1147634955 - December 31, 1969 By : This is history in the making! You will probably be just as surprised as I was when I heard this. Ice Cube and Daz Dillinger have been in the same circles for over a decade, but, up until this Ice Cube & Dogg Pound tour that's tearing up the States right now, the two of them had never been in the same room, let alone went on tour with each other.

Now that Ice Cube is promoting his "Laugh Now, Cry Later" album dropping June 6th, and Daz & Kurupt are promoting "So So Gangsta", "Cali Iz Active" and "Same Day, Different Shit", they've been on the grind, and hopefully we'll end up seeing some hot music coming out of it aswell.

In the process of promoting and touring, Daz also ran into 40 Glocc. As you know, they've had an on-going feud for past few years. With Kurupt serving as the middle man, the two put their differences aside and moved on. For those who don't know, Daz has also squashed his beef with JT The Bigga Figga, who was at the "Cali Iz Active" video shoot.

I have a series of pictures for ya'll, taken on tour:

First off, our dubcnn online store will be online next week, the homie Yash has been working on that, having meetings with the bank directors and such. So the Online Store is a done deal, you're gonna be able to cop all the CD's you can't get in your local stores, underground stuff, rare stuff, and of course, exclusive stuff.

But hold up, that's not it. Of course, we're gonna be going back to our daily news updates, exclusive audio, and our infamous interviews in near future. I know I've been lacking lately, that has been due to me finishing my studies in June, so I've been incredibly busy studying for the final exams, it's all gonna be done early June though. So your boy is gonna be back pumping out interview after interview real soon! In the meanwhile, Yash has completed a grip of interviews, and I have some waiting to go up too. Here is a little list of the interviews that should go live in the coming weeks:

Domino
Krayzie Bone
C-Bo
Shade Sheist
Damizza
Michelob
Dilated Peoples
Butch Cassidy
Caz
The Relativez
40 Glocc
Battlecat
Big Moz

and many more to come.

news 1085585770 - December 31, 1969 By : From Yuks official website SmokeAlotRecords.com:

The original thug lord has done it once again. With his flawless perpetual style and untouchable verbal heat on the mic and stage, Yukmouth AKA Godzilla prepares to release his latest project United Ghettos of America Vol. 2 DVD along with a scorching soundtrack to back it up. You may most likely recognize him from the platinum Bay Area rap sensation The Luniz (also known as Luni Toonz) and their never-faded ganja anthem I Got 5 on It & The Ice Cream Man. You probably own Thugged Out: The Albulation, Thug Lord: The New Testament, Godzilla, or one of his previous power packed projects. It’s nothing new. Yukmouth has a bigger body of work than Frank Sinatra and is one of the heaviest international rap sensations out there. Gaining ultimate exposure across the world throughout America, Europe, etc, Yukmouth portrays himself as the one of a kind real life thugged out west coast rapper. When it comes down to it, he has seen and done it all. Who started out in the ghettos of Oakland, California selling drugs, getting locked up, and writing his first song (The Ice Cream Man) in jail, ended up touring with Puff Daddy, Biggie, Mary J and some of the biggest names in hip hop history. During the period when recording Lunitk Muzik he landed into the hands of J. Price (CEO of Rap a lot Records in Houston, TX) who then offered him a solo record deal for which he released Thugged out: The Albulation which sold over 250,000 units with no video nor airplay. He then dropped Thug Lord: The New Testament which did just as good. In 2003 Yukmouth dropped Godzilla, his third album with Rap a Lot Records which is said to be his best album ever. What makes him flawless and one of the most respected rappers in game is the fact he stays loyal to the real and original figures in the industry and stays connected with the underground. He is mainstream but not commercial. Under his own label Smoke a lot Records, his most recent project was United Ghettos of America Vol. I the DVD and soundtrack which was one of his best works as well.

Though the critically acclaimed United Ghettos of America Vol. 1 was a sensation, volume II is said to be a hundred times better. The project will come in a DVD plus Soundtrack together in one pack unlike the first which the two was sold separately. On the soundtrack you will find the likes of exclusive songs from The Régime, Eastwood, Young Roscoe, Tha Realest, C-Bo, Spice 1, Dru Down, Ms. Toi, Outlawz, Mac Dre, Numskull, & Tech N9ne. The soundtrack also include the singles Kalifornia G’z – Yukmouth, Crooked I & E-40, Stunt 211 (50 Cent diss track) – Yukmouth, Silverback Gorillas, & Bang ‘em Smurf, We Just Wanna Thug – Yukmouth & Noreaga, and I love Dro – Yukmouth & Bun B. The DVD will include exclusive footage, lots of females and XXX Eye Candy Scenes, live events, performances, interviews and basically footage of how celebrities do it big. You can expect to see raw footage with Dennis Hall (Bunny Ranch), Eddie Griffin, Cedric The Entertainer, The Diplomats, Yin Yang Twins, Lil John, Too Short, Scarface, Kurupt, Tech N9ne, The Luniz, Floyd Mayweather, Suge Knight, Devin The Dude, Bishop Don Juan, Keak Da Sneak, Lil Flip, David Banner, Lisa Ray, Nelly, P. Diddy, and much more. United Ghettos of America Vol. 2 DVD will come with the soundtrack and the project is expected to drop around June/July of 2004 and will be nationally distributed. For more information on this release and/or any other Yukmouth related material, visit the official Smoke a lot Records website at www.smokealotrecords.com / www.rapalotrecords.com.

news 1088000759 - December 31, 1969 By : I would like to Introduce you to a up and coming R&B artist (Unsigned) out of Southern California, "KROOK". Krook has been around for awhile on the underground circuit working with artist such as Kurupt, Roscoe, Bad Azz, 40 Glocc, Latin artist Capone', Nite Owl, Snapper, Kid Frost and many more.
But Krook has branched out on his own with a completed album, album cover and ready for press under his cousins Independent label Soulyric. I'm not going to hype him up, I'll let the music speak for it self. Krook's looking for a warm R&B label that's self contained, artist to work with, meaning writting, appearing on tracks and just networking with artist period. Most of you will ask the question "why isn't this cat out, his music is off the chain"!!, well Krook has been overlooked, but also things happen for a reason, and we hope that a label will have the ears and eyes to realize that. Krook has been spoke on in New York alot lately and he's getting radio spins in Syaracuse New York!!!! top mix show, that's a start but not enough!!!!!

I don't want you guys to read a book, so let me send you to krooks E.P.K. site for you to view, we're adding things daily so check back frequently. I hope you enjoy Krook, and the definition of Krook is "DON'T LEAVE YOUR LADY UNATTENDED" Think about it!!!!!!!!

Check out the site by clicking
HERE.
There you can check out his bio and much more, and listen to three songs. You can download the three songs directly by clicking below too:

Krook - Passion
Krook - What Would You Do
Krook - Shake That Thang

Enjoy, and look for much more coming from Krook soon!

news 1089677637 - December 31, 1969 By : Goddaaaaaaaaaamn, what a show! Last night, at the Henry Fonda Theater, a live crowd witnessed the reunion of some of both coasts most notorious artists. Mobb Deep had their anticipated show with Sly Boogy opening up, but it turned out to be much more than just a Mobb Deep show.

Mobb Deep, Kurupt, Jayo Felony, 40 Glocc, Boo Yaa TRIBE, Eastwood, Dilated Peoples, Alchemist, Bushwick Bill, Tri-Star and many more, all on one stage???? Now that's some shit!

The Riflemen is official, oh boy, it is official! After Havoc & Prodigy performed a few of their hits including Shook Ones, they called the Riflemen along with everybody else on stage, and from then on, it was a party on stage. Everywhere you looked, a big name artist was rocking off. The Mob put down a hot show, and with Jayo's new invention, which brings the left half of the crowd to yell out "FUCK THAT SIDE" to the right half, the crowd was really and into it and rowdy.

Everything remained peaceful though, it was a hot ass show, and hopefully this is just the beginning of a flourishing relationship between Mobb Deep & Riflemen. After the West Coast left the stage, Mobb Deep closed it off with some more cuts including their current smash hit "Twisted".

DUBCNN was present for you, from back at the hotel before the show, to backstage, to on stage, to back at the hotel after the show. We have tons of pics, aswell as a 1hour+ film. The movie aint on the computer yet but for now you can check out some of the pictures below:

news 1092805218 - December 31, 1969 By : There has been alot of talk about an incident from last week that concerned Jayo Felony. We just want to let you know that Jayo is doing good and to be on the look out for the new Riflemen album project, and his solo album "In Da Trenches" dropping this fall on Universal Records.

I have had the opportunity to listen to both the Riflemen and his solo album, and they are THE SHIT, without exagerating. Jayo Felony delivers and amazing performance on both records, two of my most anticiapted records of the year.

In other Riflemen news, 40 Glocc has been in the studio this week with RBX and Kokane working on his 2nd solo album, the follow up to his HIGHLY underrated debut The Jakal. We will put up pictures from the studio sessions tomorrow.

news 1096640736 - December 31, 1969 By : What do you think of when you hear the name 40 Glocc? (We're talkin' rap... so don't bring the gun-talk in)

Well, ever since starting off with the Dogg Pound a few years back, 40 has been steadily on the rise. After releasing his HIGHLY overlooked debut solo "The Jakal", which featured damn near the whole West Coast, his non-stop grinding and huslting has brought him up to a point where people look at him as one of the West Coasts most promising prospects.

He's part of the Riflemen crew which consists of the legendary Mobb Deep from the East, and West Coast legends Kurupt & Jayo Feloney. All together, backed by smashing production from Havoc & Alchemist, these boys are bound to shake up the game.

As we reported a few weeks back, the Riflemen are currently looking for the right deal to release the completed album on, and are also gonna release a mixtape really soon.

To back up what I just said about 40 Glocc, I have three songs below for ya'll to check out. The first one features Petey Pablo, who's been rumoured to have signed with Death Row, and Jayo Felony. The song is called "Shame" and is a definite BANGER!

Check it out below:

40 Glocc, Petey Pablo & Jayo Felony - Shame

The next song I have for you is a 40 Glocc solo song called "Runnin'". The copy I'm puttin' up is just a ruff mix, it's not the final mix. Check it out below:

40 Glocc - Runnin'

And last, but not least is a song from J Steez' upcoming album (look for a detailed J Steez update tomorrow with more audio). The song features Suga Free, Weasel Loc & 40 Glocc and is called "On Point" and is banging as shit. Suga Free is at his BEST on this one!

J Steez ft. 40 Glocc, Weasel Loc & Suga Free - On Point


This is it for now, but we're gonna bring you an in-depth 40 Glocc interview soon, aswell as audio from his newest project:

news 1102127224 - December 31, 1969 By : This season, hiphop merges with Hollywood in a major way as the third and final film to be released from the mega-popular “Blade” trilogy spotlights Kool Keith and his group Thee Undatakerz’ innovative CD and their single, “Party In The Morgue." The New Line Cinema Blade series’ grand finale, “Blade: Trinity,” starring Wesley Snipes, features cutting edge filmmaking, special effects and technologically advanced creative sound effects, making it a high-tech, cinemascopic auditory experience for hiphop fans.
Highlighting the innovative score, composed by Wu Tang leader RZA, is the film’s climactic fight scene, which is set to the song by Kool Keith and The Undatakerz’ “Party In The Morgue,” taken from the CD, “Kool Keith Presents Thee Undatakerz” which was produced by the critically acclaimed DJ Daniel Merlot.
Already having received rave reviews, “Party In The Morgue” along with its innovative music video, has been compared to the controversial, mega-hit “Smack My Bitch Up,” the Kool Keith and Prodigy collaboration that achieved multi-platinum status worldwide.
“Kool Keith Presents Thee Undatakerz” featuring the “Party In The Morgue” track was released by Activate Entertainment. The album features a hybrid disc, which plays the CD on all standard audio players. It also contains an enhanced format, so if played in a DVD player, the music video for the title track can be viewed.
What also contributes to making the album an item that is much sought after by hiphop fans is that the disc also contains an a cappella hidden bonus track of “Party In The Morgue,” so that fans can make their own mix and send them to the record label at
http://www.2activate.com to enter a competition. The producer of the winning remix will receive a record deal and an appearance on a major upcoming movie soundtrack.
In other Kool Keith activity, Daniel Merlot of the group Crash Berlin, has recorded a self-titled album that will be released on February 1, which contains the European smash collaboration with Kool Keith, “Movin’ The Hype Track.”
Meanwhile, the soundtrack album of the “Blade: Trinity” film has also been released, on which artists joining Kool Keith and the Undatakerz include Raekwon, RZA, E-40, Fat Joe, Ghostface Killah, Lil Flip and the late, great, Old Dirty Bastard

news 1108335755 - December 31, 1969 By : Sup everyone. Let me introduce you to producer extraordinaire EMBRYO. Born in Brasov, Romania, he came to the states and landed in Southern California when he was only 2 1/2yrs old. He started DJing 7 Years ago under the name DJ Embryo. Shortly after that he decided he wanted to produce his own rap demo since he was rapping a little. He had a friend who had some equipment (old vintage analog equipment like Original Roland TR-808, TR-909, etc). He produced Electronic music. So with his help he produced his first 2 Hip Hop beats.He started working on more tracks though and in the first month...somehow his beat CD got around and he started getting alot of attention from local and even out of state artists. Since that moment, he knew what he was made to do. He dropped the DJ and became Embryo ("An Organism in the first stages of Development").


5 Years later....He's creating a buzz around the music industry...working with artists from around the United States like "Sincere" (Blackground/Universal Recording Artist out of New York), R. Prophet (of The Nappy Roots on his solo debut out of Kentucky), Ras Kass, 40 Glocc, Scipio, Diamonique and a many more. His style is unique and diverse... while most producers are sample based (which I respect), I on the other hand am completely opposite. Embryo is the name, Embryo Productions is the company, "The Future Sound of Music" is the slogan. EMBRYO is working on some major projects right now. One of my main focuses is his artist TEXACAL. Born in Texas, Raised in Cali. He just finished their debut Street Banger "WHO U!?" "Both the south and the west are not prepared for what we are about to drop", states EMBRYO. The streets are going to embrace this for sure.

news 1111422862 - December 31, 1969 By : Snoop Dogg third single off his current album "R&G: The Masterpiece" is the song "Signs" with Uncle Charlie Wilson & Justin Timberlake. Personally, I'm not a fan of this song at all, Snoop justified the choice in our interview by saying he went pop on this one, he's been gangsta his whole life, and he aimed at the pop crowd for this one.

Whatever the case, this is his new video, I have it up here for ya'll to download (40MB, High Speed), shouts to my man Wood for his help.

Check it out below:

news 1112443915 - December 31, 1969 By : IT'S TRUE!!!!!!! It's been in motion over the last week, starting with Bigg Snoop Dogg announcing his West Coast Conference he's going to call on the site and saying he wants to involve everybody from the West, followed by Kurupt making it public that he's down to get down with Daz & Snoop again.

Today, Daz Dillinger made the final step by announcing on Julio G's K-Day that he's ready to move on and get back with Kurupt.

This is the best news in a LONG ASS TIME, Daz & Kurupt, Kurupt & Daz, back together. It remains unclear whether Kurupt is still signed to Death Row, and what the situation with the other members such as Bad Azz, Nate Dogg etc is. However they are trying to patch things up with Jayo Felony, 40 Glocc and such.



We'll keep you updated on this, this is huge news for the West Coast, and the rap game in general. I'm sure the two still have the same chemistry they used to have before the break up.

D.P.G.C. 2005!

news 1112834566 - December 31, 1969 By : Mill Ticket Entertainment presents: The ultimate Mixtape, "It's A Problem Volume 1" with Wallet, Kontroverse, K.Dot, Dubb and Kapp featuring special appearances by Kurupt, Lil' Jon, 40 Glocc and Young Ron.

The Rap game has never experienced true problems until now. "It's A Problem, Volume 1" is a title that is truly self explanatory. No artist has caused this much chaos on one Mixed Tape. On April 12, 2005, this 24 track mixtape will include 3 bonus Southern Inspired "Screwed and Chopped" songs, which will force everybody to take note to the competition that is about to raise the bar in Hip Hop. Wallet, Kontroverse, K.Dot, Dubb, and Kapp prove that the game has been taken over. With production by T.I.T.O, Flow, Ivan, Dow Jones (Roscoe P. Coldchain/Star Trak), J.Gambit (Rass Kass, Scipio), Da Rock (Memphis Bleek, LL Cool J) and Ramone-Golden Boy Music (J Boog, LIL Fizz, Guy), Bionik(Stat Quo, Slimm Calhoun) this mixtape is sure to bring a revolutionized view of music. "It's a Problem, Volume 1" provides the listener with special appearances by some of Hip Hops biggest influences. One of the West Coasts own forefathers, Kurupt, The South's creator of Crunk Music, Lil Jon, the Source Magazines Unsigned Hype 40 Glocc and new emerging artist Young Ron all make unforgettable appearances that will definitely cause new problems.

The songs "Murder by Numbers" and "What?" already have the underground rap scene buzzing about this upcoming sound. Three title tracks, "Uh Oh," "Heat" and "On the Street", have been Chopped and Screwed to change the dynamics of the original lyrics and beat of the song. Chopped and Screwed music originates from Down South, made popular by DJ Screw(R.I.P.!). It's a slower version of a regular paced song. "This causes the song to have more length, changes the format without changing the actual message and lets the listener vibe to the bass line of the track," Mill Ticket Entertainment CEO, E. Mills, explained. This type of music has yet to be attempted by an East or West Coast artist and "It's A Problem, Volume 1" brings a small taste to listeners who may be completely blind to this style of music, which is the next big thing in hip hop. You haven't experienced a problem until you've heard "It's a Problem, Volume 1."

news 1119582868 - December 31, 1969 By : Attention A & R's and Labels out there reading this: Sinful "El Pecador" of the infamous Long Beach duo Tha Mexakinz is now a Free agent. The Pioneer of Bilingual rap is ready to make his mark again. Holla at elpecador@elpecador.com and/or danny@elpecador.com if you're interested.

Now to the music. Sin has been busy in the studio with I-Man working on a new Mexakinz album, we'll be dropping an interview we did with the group not too long ago, very soon. But, in between that time, El Pecador has been able to craft some tracks with many of the West Coast's hottest names.

First up I have for you a Remix for a song that appeared on his Spanish language album "Confesiones De Un Pecador" that was released last year, entilted "Pieza Diez." For the Remix, Sinful got one of the West Coast's biggest and brightest prospects, Sly Boogy and fellow LBC Resident, Dynamic Certified/M.O.B.'s own Techniec to drop their rhymes. The song is called "Dime Piece," which just so happens to be the English translation of "pieza diez." Though this is a Remix which features rhymes in English, Sin drops his verse all in Spanish.

Enough explaining, here's the full MP3:

Sinful feat. Sly Boogy & Techniec - Dime Piece

Super Producer Bosko dropped his Compilation That Fire, which featured everyone from DMX, E-40, C-Bo, Kueupt, Bubba Sparxxx to Lil' Jon, a little earlier this year. The title track featured E-40, C-Bo and Cool Nutz. With an already Latin feel to the track, Sinful hopped on and Remixed the joint. E-40's verse is the same, Sin drops his Spanish language rhymes as usual over the Spanish guitar strings laid by Bosko. The track also features Vallejo's Baby Bash.

Check it out for yourself:

Sinful feat. Bosko, E-40 & Baby Bash - That Fire Remix

It doesn't stop there. In the coming days we will be bringing you another Remix from Sin. Continue to log on to the website where you get all the hot news, video and audio first! DubCNN.com!

news 1120424635 - December 31, 1969 By : Beats By The Bay is a Documentary film by Filmmaker Bobby Mardis, about the Bay Area Rap scene. The Bay is a very important, but often forgotten, factor in Hip Hop today. As you already know, and you'll see in this film, many of today's Rap trends started in, but are rarely credited to, The Bay. From Independent to Major, The Bay has it all. In Beats By The Bay, you can see live performances and/or Interviews from E-40, Mac Dre(R.I.P.), Paris, San Quinn, Suga T, Tajai of Hieroglyphics/Souls Of Mischief, Skip of UTP, Conscious Daughters, MC Hammer, Too Short, Outlawz, Mac Mall, B-Legit, Mr. Kee, Dutch, Lil Ric, Laroo, Luni Coleone, Marvaless, Mistah F.A.B., The Mosse, Nuttso, Whoridas and many more.

The story is told by up and coming Bay rapper Kontac, whom we had a chance to speak with briefly about the project. Here's what he had to say:

"Beats By The Bay is a series of Dvds: Volume 1, 'Something To Say' is the first in the series, which drops July 5th in The Bay, July 9th Nationwide. 'Something To Say' deals with what Bay Area artists go through when doing their music. How they do it, this volume is more of the Social film."

He continues:

"Volume 2, 'The Independent Game' is a step above 'Somthing To Say,' to where you see the artist show you how some of them work on their CDs Art Work, Production, Mastering, Distrobution, get point of views from retial outlets and Mom and Pop chains. Get info straight from the artist's mouth."

"The other 2 volumes are the Indusrty Music guide. 1 and 2 talks to ASCAP and BMI people, who talk about publishing and lawyers. You will see Russell Simmons and his wife (Kimora Lee Simmons) talk about the music game. If you watch these last 2 films, it's like going to The Gavin or The How Can I Be Down summitts in one CD. A new artist can watch these and do basically everything needed for putting out an album."

I asked Kontac about how he and the DVD's will help The Bay, to which he responded:

"I will help The Bay get world wide reconition where the world can see where the terms 'Pop ya Collar,' 'Oh Boy,' and 'Player Haters' came from. The world can see where the Independent Game came from."

As for what Kontac is up to musically:

"Next up, I got my artist Erase E who was on the first Westcoast Bad Boy's album. His album 'Smoove But Aggresive' drops the end of July and features Twista, Frontline, Silkee, Kontac and a host of others. The Kontac album drops the end of August and features San Quinn, Ya Boy, Erase E, Sean T, Balance, 2 Live Crew, Dap, Mac n AK, and others. The Beats By The Bay Soundtrack is fire, features San Quinn, Hoodstars, JT The Bigga Figga, Cellski, A-Wax, Frontline, Balance, Mistah F.A.B., Erase E, Sean T, Mac n AK, Mr. Kee, and others. First single 'Bay Ridin' features San Quinn, Kontac and J.Slimm is getting radio play now. The video is being shot middle of August and features Super Model Rita-G."

Finally, I asked Kon where he sees The Bay in 5 years:

"5 years from now The Bay will be where it was from 1992-1995. We can not fumble the ball when we get it! Hit up
BeatsByTheBay.com for more info. Thank you DubCNN for ya support."

touch with the collegiate buying market with minimal cost to the record company. We do this by combining the presence of celebrities along with sponsors such as Pepsi, Pro-Line hair care and Dada Foot Wear that gives the student a totally fun experience while we are on campus.

Because of high demand for slots on the Grooveline tour we have

who are looking to connect with an audience that’s likely to consume
their projects. We will maximize the college market for your artists by putting them on campuses in a festive environment. We will set up an autograph session from 11 AM to 1PM in each school’s student union.
During this time we will entertain students with games, giveaways and
music. We will also invite local media (news, video show, magazines, and newspapers) to cover the event. We will spend the rest of the afternoon making scheduled appearances. Then we will return to the campus in the evening for a performance. In some cases we will perform on campus during lunch.

Past tour participants include David Banner (With Crooked Lettaz),
Young Bloodz, C-Murder, Do Or Die, Mr. Short Khop, Beelow, Red Café, Spice 1, Messy Marv and last years headliner Choppa to name a few. We’ve secured Mack 10 and Choppa as participants this year. Other headliners will be added as we finalize the tour.

Grooveline has put together an all inclusive tour that will provide for all the artist’s needs, while supplying the label with the manpower it needs to properly promote an artists.

news 1134079131 - December 31, 1969 By : Reaffirming the fact that the I.E. (Inland Empire) is a hot breeding ground for burgeoning new talent, R&B artist, M. Anthony is prepared to step out from the background and take his place in the forefront of the I.E.'s progression to the mainstream. With a style and flow influenced by artists in every genre imaginable as well as the world around him, M. Anthony's craft may be considered a "rollercoaster ride" by some: One minute a heartfelt ballad has the ladies attention, before he transcends to a party anthem where you're compelled to grab something soft and hit the dance floor, while bringing it back home to his West Coast upbringing and the world outside his window.

As a prelude to the album he will be dropping next year, M. Anthony is gearing up to release his R&B mixtape project entitled: "The Introduction", his personal introduction to the people. Although this release may be a standard release to familiarize himself with the listeners, he is not content with keeping things ordinary. He will be releasing a "Reloaded" version of the mixtape, complete with all new original tracks as well as a enhanced CD with exclusive video footage and other digital goodies.

I have two exclusive tracks off the mixtape for ya'll. The first is entitled "Truth Hurts" in which M. Anthony sings over Dr. Dre's "Nuthing but a G thang" hit in a song about trying to have a drink while dealing with your "significant other" constantly in your ear. The second is entitled: "Trust Me" which was a track produced by Crown City Productions.

M. Anthony - Truth Hurts (over "Nuthin' But A G Thang")

news 1139599987 - December 31, 1969 By : You can all lay off my inbox now with the requests for the latest Warren G video, i told you it would be available for download here on dubcnn as soon as possible and as promised, we got it!

The second single from Warren G's latest album "In The Mid-Night Hour" features long time friend and collaborator Nate Dogg, the track is called "I Need A Light" and in its first two days of release on MySpace.com it racked up 28,000 plays and rocketed to #44 on the Billboard charts.


The track is one of the smoothest on the new album and is perfectly accompanied by the tones of Nate Dogg, speaking on the song Warren G commented: "‘I Need a Light’ is a song to sit back and listen to if you are stressin’ over something. Listen to the hook and it makes you feel good. As far as the lyrics in the song, I’m talking about growing up in Long Beach, some of the s*#! I went through, everything from what I saw as a kid up until now. We got to do it."

Nate Dogg also took time to break down his thoughts on the record: "This song is deep ‘cuz all of our other songs are about regulating on someone or having fun, talking ‘bout the game. It’s about when you are going through s*#!, you got people who smoke just to relax themselves. Like, I need a light man, there is so much going on in my life that I just need to relax. Or dammit, go get me a bottle or something ‘cuz I need a drink. There’s just so much stress going off, let me relax myself. That’s where I was going with the song. That’s where it’s at."

The music video for "I Need A Light" takes on a late 1940's post second world war period feel with contemporary flair and is the brainchild of director Paul Hunter; he explains the concept: "The overall tone of the video shows the classic side of Warren – how he built his empire from the streets of Long Beach and expanded it to the world. He is showing everyone that we can have a good time, look good and dress well. It’s all about class and treating people right. It’s really about the classy style of hip-hop."

Enough talk about the video and on with the media you have all been craving, below is the video for download, enjoy it courtesy of dubcnn and Hawino Records and drop feedback and thoughts over at the official dubcnn

news 1140087030 - December 31, 1969 By : As we previously reported, MC Eiht is slated to release his new solo album "Affiliated" this spring. Eiht has just signed a distribution deal for his record label, West Music, Inc. in a joint venture with Paid In Full/Koch.

Eiht, who also played the role of Ryder in the mega-hit video game, "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas," says this record deal differs from his past independent signings. "The promotion will be better, the distribution is better," he confirms. "The label that I have the joint venture with this time is more professional than what was happening with my other independent projects. They don’t hesitate to get things done."

The album's first single will be the beautiful "Say Nothing/Comptons Back." produced by Raw Steel. In addition to the Compton rap legend, the song also features Comptons Most Wanted's Chill and Bam, along with King T, who rides shotgun. We exclusively premiered this song back in August, courtesy of King T, as it's also featured on King T's latest project "The Boss Up Mixtape".

The Dub-I.N.C.’s upcoming "Affiliated" title is a natural for Eiht, who explains, "I named it that because there are a lot of misconceptions in the street as far as West Coast music, namely, what we do as far as West Coast music, how we get down with it, and what we represent. A lot of my fans have been anticipating a new record from a true West Coast artist. I get a lot of emails asking me questions like, “When are you going to come back and spit the real, because there is all this fake-ism in the game out there right now." As Eiht points out, "You’ve got a lot of cats from everywhere out there, trying to do whatever, and a lot of it makes utterly no sense." Eiht remarks, “This album title lets people know I’m still affiliated with the streets, with the neighborhoods, and what people are going through out there on the streets; it’s not being about glamour and glitz."

Eiht contends, "As everyone has seen, I just have to remain true and humble, and after all that, things will fall into place." The upcoming album that has yet to be turned into the distributor, is already receiving a kilo of industry buzz, and is expected to become classic ghetto gold.

news 1140624587 - December 31, 1969 By : I got some good news for all of our Australian visitors! After 8 years of absence, Snoop Dogg is ready to hit the road Down Under again. Here is the official press release:

After months of growing speculation, Paul Dainty and Dainty Consolidated Entertainment are thrilled to announce the upcoming Australian tour of hip-hop kingpin SNOOP DOGG, with pre-sold tickets via the Internet available February 21 and general tickets available February 23.

Having not stepped a foot (or paw, as the case may be) in the country for over eight years, rap’s self-appointed grand pimp Snoop Dogg is ready to return to our shores and wow hip-hop fans in all major cities with his signature West Coast flavour.

“The last Snoop Dogg tour was so memorable, and stood out from so many other shows, simply because of Snoop himself,” enthuses DJ Nino Brown, Australia’s premier urban DJ who supported Snoop during his first sell-out Australian tour in 1998. “Snoop is a complete artist and unlike no one else in hip-hop. It was his first Australian tour and every song he performed was a classic. There were no songs the crowd didn't know all the words to. His debut album Doggystyle was so huge here, and everyone wanted to see him perform all the tracks live. It was an awesome night, and I can't wait to see Snoop again!”

Born Calvin Broadus in California’s Long Beach City, Snoop has grown from a teenage member of the notorious Crip gang to a 90’s rap superstar to a global entertainment icon – and he’s still only in his early thirties. Due to his gang allegiance and ties with California hip-hop legend Dr. Dre, his 1993 album Doggystyle was the first debut album ever to enter the Billboard charts at number one. Singles such as “What’s My Name?” “Gin & Juice” and “Ain’t No Fun (If The Homies Can’t Have None)” came to define West Coast hip-hop in that era. Having now completed seven studio albums, with his most recent being 2004’s R&G: (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece featuring the smash hit “Drop It Like It’s Hot”, Snoop has proven himself a rare survivor in the cut-throat rap game.

In addition to his music, Snoop Dogg is also the ultimate rap brand. The street-savvy entrepreneur gets his hustle on in every way imaginable, from his signature line of Pony Sneakers (“Doggy Biscuitz”), to namesake foot-long hot dogs (“Snoop Doggs”), to his MTV show Doggy Fizzle Televizzle, plus Doggystyle soft porn DVDs and frequent appearances in video games such as True Crime: Streets Of LA. His film career took off in 1998 with a small role in the indie flick Half Baked, and continues to flourish every year, with acclaimed roles in The Wash, Training Day, Starsky & Hutch, Soul Plane and Baby Boy to date.

Currently promoting Bigg Snoop Dogg Presents: Welcome To Tha Chuuch, an album he executive produced featuring artists from his Doggy Style Records plus guests, Snoop can also be seen in Boss’n Up, a film inspired by the music of his latest album, R&G. Boss’n Up is the story of Corde Christopher (played by Snoop), a dead-end grocery clerk who joins the fast life and becomes a pimp to realise his wildest dreams – with major consequences.

“Snoop is such a talented MC,” says uber-producer Pharrell Williams, who’s worked with Snoop on tracks like “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and “Let’s Get Blown”. “But he’s more than just an MC, because he knows what he wants to look like and he understands what his videos should be. He’s just a great, all-round entertainer.”

Get out your flyest pimp suits, run to the store for those custom-made alligator dress shoes, make sure your perm’s perfect and get ready to holler “pimp, pimp, hooray!” (Snoop’s own cheer) when the Doggfather rolls into your city – it will be a night of classic hip-hop you won’t want to miss.

news 1140624655 - December 31, 1969 By : Ice Cube has been making a strong comeback to the music business lately with a new single getting radio play, a new album in the works, a tour planned, and a couple other side projects cooking. If this wasn't enough, the brainiac also produced the upcoming Fox Networks series "Black.White.". The reality show, which premieres March 8th, is about one white and one black family who come together under one roof in Los Angeles as they prepare to go out in the world as the other race.

Ice Cube has also been secured to do the official theme song for the show, entitled "Race Card". And known for being a political rapper, Ice Cube was definitely the right person chosen.

"Don’t believe the hype, everything in the world ain’t black and white / everybody ain’t a stereotype / just because I look wrong I'm about to do right", Cube raps in the title song, which also includes his sharp rejection of an oft-cited phrase: "Did you get your race card? Yo, what the hell is a race card?"

In support of the documentary, Ice Cube also shot a video for the song. A lot of talk, lets see and hear the outcome, as Dubcnn has both the video and audio of "Race Card" below. Download it and hit the forum with some feedback!

Ice Cube - Race Card (MP3 Audio)
Ice Cube - Race Card (WMV Video)

In related news, the official Ice Cube website recently added the video for Ice Cube's song "Chrome & Paint" to the website. The song features WC and is Cube's street single off "Laugh Now, Cry Later", due out June 6th.

The album, which boasts an array of features from such people as Jermaine Dupri is set to drop on July 18th 2006 on So So Def / Virgin Records.

So So Gangsta brings a whole new sound to the already established Daz Dillinger discography, with hit singles such as “All I Need” and
It’s My Thang”, featuring long-time friend and fellow Dogg Pound Gangsta, Kurupt. The video for “It’s My Thang” is due to be shot in April.

As explained by Daz himself, the album is not only going to be for the gangsters out there, it is also for people who want to hear the truth about the streets, not the watered down version that is heard in a lot of hip-hop today.

Daz Dillinger still manages to bring the heat a decade after his debut appearance, with the on-going hype over the new project, Daz hasn’t just limited himself to West Coast radio stations, in fact the East Coast is also giving “All I Need” tremendous airplay.

So let me refresh you just one more time on the release date, July 18th 2006. Make sure you go and cop “So So Gangsta” and support the West Coast, this is going to be certified heat!

40 Glocc is a household name on dubcnn, and took that task upon himself. Sometime last year he let me hear his version of "Love Is A Battlefield", but we decided against releasing it at that time. People weren't ready! Now it's 2006, people got a better understanding of who 40 Glocc is, and through his Infamous/G-Unit affiliation, the world got to see him on "The Massacre Tour 2006" all over the world.

With his current street banger "
Where Them Hammers (ft. Sam Scarfo)" (Prod. by Rick Rock) blazing radio stations nationwide, and his buzz steadily growing, I thought now would be a good time to let ya'll get a glimpse of some, you might say, different Hip-Hop.

Anyway, enough talking, it's time to let ya'll check it out! Listen to 40 Glocc's "Love Is A Battlefield" by clicking below:

40 Glocc - Love Is A Battlefield

40 Glocc is also getting ready to go on tour with Mobb Deep & the Infamous camp (Nyce, Gail Gotti, Sam Scarfo, 40 Glocc, Alchemist) for the release of Mobb's new album "Blood Money".

If you've been paying attention to your number one spot for Hip Hop news, Dubcnn, as of late, you would have seen a huge amount of material from the West Coast's latest bubbling section: The Inland Empire. Just East of Los Angeles County, the I.E. has finally made it's way out of L.A.'s shadow and has began producing an onslaught of talent. One of the brightest bulbs in the entire I.E. bunch is SkiLL. He's no stranger to Dubcnn, as we've featured him on here many times before. He's grinded from selling his homemade recorded and pressed Mixtapes on the I.E. streets to working with Infamous/G-Unit's 40 Glocc, I.E. Producer WS Bugg and many others.

A few months ago, he crafted a song for a fellow San Bernardino resident, Jynxx. The up coming producer just put out his Beats And Life album independently. One of the songs featured was by SkiLL and was called "Inland Empire." Since it's release, you've seen a flurry of other I.E. anthem styled tracks from a host of emcee's from the area. But as SkiLL puts it: "It's the modern Inland Anthem for the City and County of San Bernardino."

There was a Remix that was to be recorded and produced by Jynxx, which was set to feature not only skill SkiLL, WS Bugg, 40 Glocc, M-One, and others. But, unfortunately, it hasn't been decided on by SkiLL, whether or not it should be released. Feel free to ask the man why by visiting his Myspace and sending him a message. While you're there, be on the look out for a few tracks to be posted up from his latest Mixtape that he's recently scrapped as he's began working on some brand new material, mostly due to the content it contained and the recent rise in violence through the City of San Bernardino. SkiLL expalins his music will "be less violent and and more inspirational to the streets of the 909 and the whole globe. Shouts out to Westside Bugg, 40 Glocc, Seis-One, Jynxx, Dubcnn, West San Bernardino and the whole world." The Mixtape is titled Rubbed The Wrong Way.

Before being an emcee from the I.E. was the thing to be, SkiLL was one of the few repping I.E. on every track to the fullest. He's one to watch for in 06 and 07.

Most of you probably thought this would just be a Crooked I DVD, but it's shaping up to be more than that.

Featuring interviews with the who's who of the industry, from Russel Simmons, Master P, Dave Mays amongst others, to some background info you probably don't know about, such as RBX' story, who was the first artist to leave Death Row Records.

Of course, you will get alot of Crooked I, and understand his path, from his four years on Death Row, to his status as an independent artist.

The biggest news though, is that the DVD will come with a full soundtrack! Originally, a mini-soundtrack with around eight tracks was planned, but they've decided to drop a full soundtrack along with the DVD. You can get a little taste of it by checking out the Chopped 'N' Screwed version of Crooked's Scott Storch produced banger "Cali Boyz", at the official dynasty myspace page.

I also have the full trailer of the "Life After Death Row" DVD, which will give you a good idea of what the DVD will look like. Download it below:

news 1152951316 - December 31, 1969 By : Bigg Snoop Dogg took some time yesterday to speak with AllHipHop about his new album; "The Blue Carpet Treatment" [due in the fall], his plans for WestCoast Dominance as well as his work on two new westcoast groups - who you may ask? Well the project we exclusively revealed last week called Warzone with MC Eiht, Kam & Goldie Loc [listen to Goldie Loc telling dubcnn about the project; here] - and the group that has been around for a few years and are no strangers to dubcnn - Westurn Union - which includes original members Damani & Bad Lucc and now includes DPG member Soopafly.


Snoop Dogg explained that we wishes to reclaim the top spot for the westcoast; "I hate losing. I'm a sore loser. That's why when the West Coast was losing, I had to come step the game up so we could get back in the game. We just want to get noticed one more time and then once you notice us and start to hear us, then you'll start to feel us."

With recent westcoast releases Snoop forsees a resurgence and a chance for the axle of power to shift back to left side of the country; "Ice Cube's album is out doing tremendous things right now and E-40's record came out bangin'. Keak Da Sneak did his thing, my n-ggas Tha Dogg Pound just came out [and] they sh-t smoking. Everybody's gearing up for my new record so it's coming back around. The Waist Deep movie just came out, which is West Coast sh-t. So it's like the movement is coming back full circle. It's got to come back home."

In regard to the new groups he is getting behind - all groups dubcnn readers are all too aware of [Warzone - MC Eiht, Kam & Goldie Loc, listen to Goldie Loc telling dubcnn about the project; here - and Westurn Union comprising of Damani, Bad Lucc and Soopafly] - Snoop explained his reasoning behind the alleigance; "My thing is trying to build the West Coast up by putting n-ggas together and formulating groups so we can learn how to group up as opposed to putting n-ggas out individually. I figured if we do groups and then one member shines, then we can push him solo. Put the group first and that way everybody eats."

Snoop also spoke about his frustration at other regions attitude towards the west when it is quiet; "I'm fin to put a stop to all that sh-t. All you motherf-ckin' suckers that ain't from the West Coast, n-gga, your pass has been revoked. Time out. We need our b-tches back, we need our lowriders back, n-gga. We need all that back n-gga -- with interest. We don't need y'all comin' out here wastin' time shooting our videos in our hood and then by the time we want to shoot, it look like some sh-t we stole from y'all. Get the f-ck out of here. They know not to confront me and I wish one of them would, I'm talking to every last one of you n-ggas. Straight from the Dogg's mouth. All that doing videos and sh-t out here n-gga without checking in with Snoop Dogg is over with."

The angst expressed here by Snoop seems to go further that just the video angle - he also believe its having an effect on employment; "A lot of these n-ggas just come out here using us, and not using us. If you gonna come to the West, start using some of these n-ggas and give them jobs. I can't come to your town and shoot a video without hiring some of your people and checking in with the right folks and what not. I'mma get ran up out there. Come on man. Show some love."

It seems Snoop's got the fire back under him, he's p-ssed, he's angry - lets hope that this echoes on his new LP - "Blue Carpet Treatment" [in stores October 18] - his lead single "Vato" is burning up the radio, listen to the exclusive snippet of the single here.

In related news we've been hearing some people think Snoop Dogg don't love dubcnn no more...*tut-tut* - Snoop, i know you and your people are reading this - lets set the haters straight!

This week I'll it ya'll with my first Dubcnn (video) interview, but before that I have a press release about West Coast rapper/singer/producer Tyrese & his new Best of Both Hoodz mixtape:

Multi-platinum, Grammy nominated singer, songwriter, actor, writer and producer Tyrese has officially launched his rap guise Black-Ty and has found support among rap’s elite including Method Man, Snoop Dogg, The Game, Mannie Fresh, Kurupt, Chingy, Paul Wall, Erik Sermon, David Banner, Ice Cube and Battlecat. Black-Ty’s debut mix-tape CD The Best of Both Hoodz Volume I (available on www.hiphopwest.com) also features tracks from DJ Warrior. Tyrese recently made his debut as Black Ty on June 25th at a performance in Los Angeles and fans came in droves to witness it.

Tyrese is approaching his rap career as if he were a new artist as proven when he personally handed out his The Best of Both Hoodz mix tape CD at the recent BET Awards and other high profile events. Tyrese has been rhyming since before he was singing, growing up in Watts. His roots were in hip hop, having been in a rap group called “Triple Impact” prior to the success of his solo R&B career. Tyrese has chosen to take a humble approach to his rap debut, “I never question the order of God’s blessing so I’m lucky to be able to rap and sing and I have been successful with R&B first. With regards to Black-Ty, he’s broke and not established and I have been grinding like a new artist. I want to work hard on my rap career from the ground up. I don’t want to be the biggest rapper out of the West Coast, I just want to contribute to the groundwork that’s already been laid out and do my part,” says Tyrese.

Although many of Tyrese’s colleagues in the music industry acknowledge his singing skills, they were taken aback by his delivery on the microphone as a rap artist. Says Method Man of Wu Tang Clan, “I was pleasantly surprised I must say. I did not know that Tyrese could rhyme so well but I should have known better. I am not just saying that because he’s the homie. His swagger is crazy. Everyone should give him a second look on this rap tip.” Snoop Dogg, who lent his support to the Black-Ty project by recording a track with Tyrese says, “He’s really got it cracking to the point where he didn’t seem like he was out of his range. It seemed like something that he was naturally born to do. That’s when I welcomed him to the game, being the king of the West, you know what I’m saying? He got my blessing as far as from the rap style of it, the rap side of it. This is one of the best albums I’ve ever heard. Anybody who ain’t behind it, come see me.”
The Game, his co star in Waist Deep (Rogue Pictures/ Focus Features) which is in theaters now, has been an avid supporter, and has already laid down 4 tracks with Tyrese. “Tyrese is a good friend of mine and he has my support in whatever it is he wants to do. He's been successful on every scale from singing to acting, so what would make anybody think that he couldn't do rap? I heard some Tyrese sh-- and it's crazy.”

Tyrese has also enlisted Chris Lighty, founder of Violator management (50 Cent, Missy Elliot and Busta Rhymes) to officiate this Black-Ty hip-hop movement. Lighty will help launch Black-Ty’s superstar rap career, staking his reputation on Black-Ty and is confident that Black-Ty is poised to become a household name in hip hop. Fans can listen to more music from Black-Ty with the upcoming release of the Ghetto Royalty Volume I Mixtape hosted by NY’s own DJ S&S which is slated for release the first week of August 2006. Tyrese has released his mix-tapes through Headquarter Entertainment, his own multi-media enterprise which is based out of Los Angeles, California. Headquarter Entertainment is - Home of The Frontline BoyZ, his in house production team. The Frontline BoyZ can be heard on various tracks on both mix tapes and on his highly anticipated album “Alter Ego” scheduled for release Fall 2006 on J Records.

news 1154480447 - December 31, 1969 By : Part 2 caused an uproar amongst fans due to the comments Snoop Dogg made towards Crooked I, and Crook got to speak his part of the story in an exclusive interview we conducted with him the same day. That was only the second part of our four-part feature on Snoop Dogg.

It's time for Part 3, check it out below:

Snoop Dogg & Dubcnn - The Interview: Part 3

In Part 3, we start off with the question about The Game and the Change Of Heart tape, and whether Snoop believes that that hurt Game's credibilty. He speaks on Dogghouse producer Terrace Martin and why we're only getting to hear him now, aswell as some more info on "Blue Carpet Treatment", and why he chose to go back to the hood with this one.

The main topic in Part 3 however is Dr. Dre. Snoop goes in depth, tells us how he wishes the good Doctor would come back to the West Coast, and put some New West artists on, as well as his work process, the "Detox" project, and more.

We end this part with the question about Snoop Dogg selling out, and why he chose to do the moves that he did.

Be on the lookout for Part 4, where Snoop talks about working with Pharrell, why he doesn't get Dr. Dre to do his whole record, and what he thinks of people claiming Dr. Dre steals beats from people without giving them their proper credit. We go into detail regarding the production of The Chronic and other Death Row albums, as well as Snoop's views on Dr. Dre, Daz and others as producers.

Snoop Dogg explains why dubcnn is a good way for him to speak his mind compared to other internet companies, and we end the interview with some more words on Spider Loc, 40 Glocc and Crooked I.

Also, for those wanting the final answer on whether Dr. Dre has production on "Blue Carpet Treatment" or not, you will get your answer in Part 4! Stay tuned to dubcnn.

news 1157138874 - December 31, 1969 By : The up and coming I.E. emcee SkiLL has finally finished his latest Mixtape entitled "Rubbed The Wrong Way Vol. 1." The sixteen track release (including intro's and outro's) serves as the soundtrack for any up and coming Indpendent emcee looking to make it in the industry.

You'll remember SkiLL from his work with Infamous/G-Unit artist 40 Glocc on a track called "San Bernardino" and he has been feautred on Dubcnn more than a few times for his other Mixtapes and various tracks he's released over time.


If you picked up Producer Jynxx's record recently, you will have heard SkiLL on there as well. From hustling his CDs on the corners of the I.E. to traveling with 40 Glocc and the Zoo Babies on the Anger Management Tour, SkiLL has already been through it. He's ready to make his mark. Which brings us to "Rubbed The Wrong Way Vol. 1." SkiLL is NOT happy with the state of Hip Hop as you'll see below, SkiLL is going to be very vocal as to what he thinks of Hip Hop and the way people are "faking" on tracks. With that said, SkiLL took a different approach on this Mixtape, as far as his content goes. He explains:

"There's been enough massaging of the way people say certain things in songs. It's not OK for certain stuff to be promoted and glorified and made a way of life. Hip Hop is near 100% unrealistic from Gangsta Rap to Neo-Soul and so on. Being from Westside of San Bernardino, CA (the HEART of the I.E.), I know how certain things are just plain normal today, which are actually just against the real rules. People don't care about anything and no one says nothin'. And if they do say somethin' it's not a solid: 'No, that's not cool and we gonna have problems if it happens again.' It's like a simple 'Yo, lighten up a bit,' kinda response to it. I'm rubbin' everyone the wrong way and feel free to say what you want to me. I WILL reply to whoever has somethin' to say. I stand firm in this til' the death of me, so ride with it or collide with it. There's no dsirespect, it's all love. 100% real love for ALL of my people and Hip Hop."

The tracklist for the mixtape is below alongside some audio samples to whet your appetite, after you've checked those out follow the link to buy the instant download of the new mixtape.

news 1161329808 - December 31, 1969 By : Earlier this week we released news on the latest posthumous release from Tupac as well as the albums lead single, [see The Latest Tupac Release "Pac's Life" Lead Single], which so far has received mixed reviews from our readers and forum members.

The new album entitled "Pac's Life" - the confirmed cover of which can now be seen to the left - will feature unreleased Tupac material as well as a host of 'current' HipHop and R&B acts.


The album includes contributions by Ludacris, Snoop Dogg, Keyshia Cole, T.I., Ashanti, Young Buck, Carl Thomas, Big Syke, Papoose, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Outlawz and Lil Scrappy with production from LT Hutton, Sha Money XL, Swizz Beatz and others.

A recent press release regarding the album stated; "One verse fans will recognize from an earlier album, all of the [other] recordings on the album are previously unheard." In the past decade since Tupac's death there have been 11 posthumous albums released which have featured music that Tupac recorded prior to his murder.

When asked about "Pac's Life", his mother Afeni Shakur stated; "I say it every time, that Tupac left us the blueprints to follow, and without the amazing contributions made by everyone of these artists, producers, musicians, everyone, I do not know how I would get this great task accomplished, I believe whole-heartedly that Tupac sends the people he wants to these projects."

As in our previous update on the album we have the albums title track "Pac's Life" for download which features T.I & Ashanti and is produced by LT Hutton.

Tupac - Pac's Life (Feat. Ashanti & T.I.) (Produced By LT Hutton)

The album is being released on Amuru/Interscope and is executive produced by Afeni Shakur and Tom Whalley. "Pac's Life" hits stores November 21st.

news 1174901323 - December 31, 1969 By : D.K. No Deal is someone who has long worked behind the scenes in the Hip-Hop industry. He is the original writer of the Platinum ultra-smash hit "Gangsta's Paradise" which was performed and made famous by Coolio and L.V. as well as having close ties with The Freestyle Fellowship.

His industry ties have led him to go back to his original love of recording music as an artist himself. He is currently working on a new album which is going to feature some of the top names on the West Coast.


So far he has tracks completed with The Game, Snoop Dogg, Eastwood, Kam, Bo-Rocc and Kurupt as well as cuts with Ne-Yo, Pharell and Nelly. The album, set to be entitled "F-ck Yo Label, Sue Me" is also set to feature production from Rodney Jerkins, Battlecat, Big Deon, Touch, Josef Leimberg, The Neckbones and more.

Today however we have been handed a new track by DK that is going at New York's own Tru Life, who has been in the news over recent weeks for his beef with Dipset. When we asked about the cut "Gangbang Mentality" DK wanted to explain the back story to the issues that have arisen; "He [Tru Life] hangs with a dude named Young Dre from the east side out here. Young Dre hooked him up with us. Thinking he was straight cuz he was with Young Dre we took him everywhere, places people from L.A. cant even go! He wears KC hats trying to be Young Dre and raps like him also. My home-girl SKG interviewed him and he started talking boatloads of sh-t about N.Y. & L.A. n-ggas and bangers in general. He said that everybody that bangs is some corny ass n-ggas and that when he comes home to N.Y. he doesn't wanna see no jheri curls, dickies or low-riders - that sh-t is corny, thats them L.A. n-ggas shit, let them do that - we some fly n-ggas, they corny, we fly n-ggas. He then said Snoop [Dogg] is a fake crip that cant even go to his own hood. He then went on to diss 50 Cent - '50 is a fake ass snitch, he didn't get shot 9 times, i got shot 9 times. 50 can't come back to queens, they'll kill him'. I know n-ggas that both these n-ggas have helped. Snoop is executive producer on Tru Life's album so to say some b-tch shit like that is foul! Snoop & 50 have helped n-ggas i know personally like Game, 40 Glocc, Spider Loc, Kurupt, Gail Gotti, Kam, Bad Lucc, MC Eiht, Goldie Loc, Coniyac, Big Chan etc.

DK went on to explain; "Tru life asked my homie Big Cartoon where we were going and Cartoon said 'to the hood' and Tru Life asked him 'should he leave his chain in the room or just tuck it in' which got Cartoon angry - 'n-gga you wit me, we dont tuck our chains!' [After the interview] His manager paid SKG to remove the footage from the DVD, which she did, but then they tried to pay her to destroy it, which she would've had they not told someone she was lying and that he never said the [aforementioned] sh-t! SKG got mad and showed us [the footage] and Tru Life is a real b*tch. Anyone who saw "Beef" knows this, he thought he did something when his folks ran in the studio & stripped the engineer & the runners - they some college kids earning credits, you dont get stripes for that n-gga. Tru Life is a b-tch plain & simple, if he says hes not just tell him all he has to do is take my fade - DK No Deal - Fly City - you can print this my n-gg.

As you can determine from that quote DK is heated and wants his feelings heard, below is the new track "Gangbang Mentality" for exclusive download

news 1182450729 - December 31, 1969 By : We can't go a day without bringing you some world exclusive music! The track we're bringing you today is real special, as it represents the connection between Cali and Philly. A new crew was recently formed, consisting of Jayo Felony, 40 Glocc, Baby Down and Baby Scar from the West, and Tek Nizzle and AK from Philly.

Anybody who heard the Tangled Thoughts "Philly 2 Cali" album already knows about their rhyming skills, and Tek's extraordinary production capabilities. There is no need to mention who Jayo Felony and 40 Glocc are, and Baby Down from L.A. and Baby Scar from Skyline, San Diego are some young fire spitters.

The first track they did is called "Take A Ride" and features Jayo Felony, Tek Nizzle, 40 Glocc and Baby Down. They're a crew, but not everybody has to be featured on every track for it to work, kind of like how the Wu-Tang works. The vintage West Coast beat is a Tek Nizzle production, make sure to download the song below:

Da Bidness - Take A Ride (Jayo Felony, Tek Nizzle, Baby Down & 40 Glocc)

I don't think that anybody that heard this track needs me to tell them to look out for more music from Da Bidness, the music is self explanatory. We briefly caught up with Jayo and Tek to speak about the project:

"Da Bidness is a mixture of the best of the west, as well as Philly all in one group. It's gonna be west coast tracks and you hear that Philly accent and that west coast shit together it's like something new. We sound good as fuck together", Jayo said about the crew.

Tek went on to explain "We droppin' tha mixtape real soon. Jayo's been goin' hard tryna put this thing togetha so we goin' just as hard. From the first record we did togetha we knew we had to do a group project. Jayo's a vet, but still as hungry as ever. AK is my evil twin. He's a monster! Baby Down & Baby Scar are young west coast gunners. I'm feelin' what they bring to tha table stylistically. And 40 Glocc's involved with the project as well, so u already know what it is."

Sounds like a promising project, let's hope something actually comes out of this, because I know a lot of you are like "new groups are being formed every day on the West, but nothing comes out!" If this first track is anything to go by, Da Bidness have a lot of potential and should bring us some great music! Keep it locked right here on dubcnn for more news soon.

Roscoe Umali has been on dubcnn before, but it's about time we properly introduce the Philipino native from Los Angeles to our viewers.

I know a lot of people are like hold up, Roscoe? That's Kurupt's little brother! No, this is Roscoe Umali, different person. He adresses this issue on his song "Illmind", featuring J. Black, where he spits:

"Just to get the record straight/I am not related to Kurupt in any way/except that he spit and I spit/we both spit the hotness/and he got a younger brother that be lookin nothin like me/but we share the same name[...]".

Roscoe Umali is managed by Sway & King Tech, and has recorded with Talib Kweli, E-40, Raekwon, DJ Muggs, DJ Khalil to name a few. Right now, the man has got the number 1 independent song in the country with his latest single "Live It Up", which features Bobby Valentino on the hook, and a verse from the Ambassador of the Bay E-40. The track was produced by Aftermath's Focus, and it's a certified banger!

news 1214062853 - December 31, 1969 By : Another week has passed and as we have been doing for the past eight weeks, it's about time for another Weekend Audio edition on dubcnn. This week we have a couple brand new heaters as well as a few tracks that came out recently that might have been slept on, including Nipsey Hussle & The Game, DJ Muggs & Planet Asia and Robin Thicke amongst others.

Let's blast off with with a new Nipsey Hussle joint. The South Central rapper literally emerged out of nowhere and has been creating a buzz through his single "Let's Roll" with The Game and his "Bullets Ain't Got No Name" mixtape.

The Game recently went on the air on Power 106 and gave it up to Nipsey, calling him the next rapper to come up from the West Coast. It looks like Game is really endorsing Nipsey right about now, as he also jumped on a remix to the title track off the "Bullets Ain't Got No Name" mixtape, which you can download below:

Nipsey Hussle -
Bullets (Remix) (ft. The Game)

The next track we have for you today is the lead single off DJ Muggs and Planet Asia collaboration album "Pain Language", called "9MM". The b-side to the single, "That's What It Is", was featured in an earlier Weekend Audio update. "9MM" is another raw joint that I'm sure all the Soul Assassins heads are going to be feeling. Planet Asia and Muggs have sounds that really compliments each other, check out "9MM" below:

DJ Muggs vs Planet Asia - 9MM

Let's get to a new track by producer/rapper Tekneek aka Tek Nizzle of the Tangled Thoughts. The Philly native who moved out to California two years ago to release the "Philly 2 Cali" with his group under the supervision of Kurupt has been working hard, supplying beats to a wide range of artists in the game. He's currently back in Philadelphia working on some solo tracks, one of which he sent us exclusively to put out. The track is called "Neighborhood Celeb" and finds him collaborating with female MC Trish Barnes. Check it out:

Tekneek - Neighborhood Celeb (ft. Trish Barnes)

Next up is a new Spider Loc single called "Chillax", off the Loc's upcoming street album "The N-gga U Love To Hate", in stores next Tuesday, June 24th. Spider Loc has got people talking right now with his recent diss track to Young Buck, following Buck's "F-ck G-Unit" statement at a concert. What we have for you right now is on a different note though, this is a laid back track called "Chillax" to which Spider is also planning to shoot a video. To listen to the track, click below:

Spider Loc - Chillax

One of the biggest talents to emerge on the East Coast - scrap that - in Hip-Hop as a whole, has been Termanology. The Latino rapper from Massachusetts has been endorsed by DJ Premier and has through his numerous mixtapes proven his gift of gab. While he's putting the finishing touches on his debut LP "Hood Politics" (producers include DJ Premier, Hi-Tek, Pete Rock, Alchemist, Havoc, Buckwild and Nottz), he has leaked a new remix to "Welcome To The Machine", with Lil Fame of M.O.P. and Easy Money:

Termanology - Welcome To The Machine (ft. Lil Fame & Easy Money)

Last but not least is a track that could very well become the summer hit of 2008. I know this has been out for a few weeks, but I figured some of you might not be familiar with it yet so I decided to drop it with the Weekend Audio. I'm talking about Robin Thicke's new single "Magic". The talented singer has been steadily on the come up since his smash hit "Lost Without You" last year, recently also blessing Lil Wayne's album on "Tie My Hands", arguably the best track on "Carter 3". His new song "Magic" is not to be slept on, check it out:

Robin Thicke - Magic

We're done for this week, come back next weekend for more Weekend Audio!

Once "Dagorilla" drops later this year, Sau will also be in the studio doing an entire album with XL Middleton which has been likened to a West Coast version of "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx" with Sau at the forefront and XL playing a Ghostface-like background role. Check out four Sau records below.

Young Sau -
Match 1 (ft. & Prod. by David Moss)
Young Sau - More Money (Prod. by David Moss)
Young Sau - Outta Pocket B*tch (ft. Mr. Shadow & Haze) [Prod. by PCR]
Young Sau - Backstage ft. I-Rocc & Ronnie Ru [Prod. by XL Middleton]

Check out Sau's Myspace by clicking here and be sure to check out "Dagorilla Out The Cage" when it drops!

The Knucklheds are a three-man Latino act hailing from Los Angeles who are set to release their first effort "Double Fisted" in August 2008 on XL Middleton's Crown City Entertainment label. Their sound is described as "defying the label of backpack rap," and we've got two records for you today that exemplify this. Check them out below.

The new track is called "3 Amigos" and, as the title suggests, takes aim at three people in particular. Lil Wayne, The Game and Young Buck take the brunt of his attacks in this new record, produced by Blaqtoven, which we have for download below.

news 1218901940 - December 31, 1969 By : The video for The Game's latest single off "LAX" has just been released. The Cool & Dre produced song and the visual complement each other very well to create this story called "My Life".

Even though it's already his third video before the actual release of the album, this will most likely be his most successful one. Click below to check it out:

The Game - My Life feat. Lil' Wayne (Video)


The album made its way onto the internet earlier this week and it has been receiving mostly positive feedback since. After a couple of spins it's easy to hear that Game took a different approach for "LAX". As we reported last month [see: Tracklist For The Game's "LAX"], the features alone showed that he went for a more universal sound this time around. After all, this could be his most complete album and his best work yet.

Don't forget to pick up your copy of "LAX" when it hits stores August 26th!

news 1226527630 - December 31, 1969 By : Dubcnn hooked up with Kurupt to get a few words on the Kurupt & Roscoe album, "The Frank & Jess Story", which was officially released yesterday, November 11th 2008, through High Powered Ent/Koch Records. The album was produced by J. Silva and features Daz, Kokane, Too Short, Rob Quest and Gail Gotti amongst others.

"This album was long overdue. Me and Scodie have always kept it pushing and it was about time we came full circle for a whole album. This is just the start, you can expect many more albums from me and Roscoe", Kurupt said.

Throughout the last weeks, Kurupt and Roscoe have been on a nationwide promo tour, networking and promoting the album on different radio stations. "We were out in New York, DJ Whoo Kid showed us a lot of love, everybody at G-Unit Radio, Shade 45, they fuck with us heavy. Even Kay Slay, that's my nigga! I ain't kicked it with him like that before, but I got a chance to meet him and he's a real cool cat. They all supported the project, so anything any of those DJ's need, Kay Slay, Whoo Kid, Angela Yee (Lip Service), they all support us big", he said about the duo's promo tour, which also featured 40 Glocc and Gail Gotti.

"We was just having a ball, that's what the album was about. It's conscious but fun at the same time - and all West Coast. We've got conscious records on there like "All I Need" with Daz and the one with me and Rob from the Coughee Brothaz, which is some smooth, real life shit." About the albums producer, High Powered Ent's John Silva, Kurupt had nothing but good things to say: "John really put this record together and I think people are gonna see some of his best work on there."

We already brought you two tracks off the album, "Break It Down Like" with Too Short and the introspective "I Got U", but here go two of my personal favorites off "The Frank & Jess Story", incase you need more convincing to go pick it up:

Kurupt & Roscoe - All I Need (ft. Daz Dillinger)
Kurupt & Roscoe - No Time To Waste (ft. Kokane, Rob Quest & T-Mac)

Incase you haven't done so yet, make sure to go pick up Kurupt & Roscoe's "The Frank & Jess Story", available in stores and online now!

However, knowing Kurupt, he already has plenty of other projects he's putting together, most notably the Kurupt & DJ Quik album "Blaqkout" (spelt qk for "Q"uik and "K"urupt). This album is shaping up to be one of the most promising to drop in the near future.

"Me and Quik is next with the Blaqkout. The album is real proper, we put our foot in on this one! We're about 90% done, about two more songs to do and Quik is already mixing the tracks. This is a step above a lot of things we've done lately, Kurupt explains.

"I told Quik that people don't want too much time to go by before another Quik album comes out. He's part of the history out here and they wanna hear him! He said fuck it, let's ride out! We did a few records and he was loving it, the chemistry was there. We're both rapping on the album and Quik did all the production." If that's not enough information to get the excitement up for "Blaqkout", then I don't know what is.

Apart from that, you can also expect the upcoming Dogg Pound album "100 Wayz", a Kurupt solo album called "Street Lights" entirely produced by Terrace Martin, and another Kurupt solo produced by Snoop Dogg. "Each of these are totally different albums, none of them sound the same. Each of them got its own concept", Kurupt described his various solo projects.

As usual, you can expect the latest news on Kurupt and the rest of the Dogg Pound Gang, right here on dubcnn.

news 1087993458 - December 31, 1969 By : Ya'll know about Lil Flips new album "Can U Feel Me" which has been out for a little while with the huge single "Game Over".
He is now set to release the follow up single, called "Sunshine"! Sandy Lal, Flip's manager and attorney of Kingpin Entertainment Group, had the following to say about the single: ""This track is a collaboration with Lil' Flip and our newest artist Lea, just signed to Kingpin. It's produced by The Synphony. Lea's sweet voice combined with Flip's playalistically catchy rhymes really takes this song over the top. The single speaks for itself; it's already at over 3000 radio spins and will be going to Top 40 this week. I asked Flip to collaborate with Lea and he just jumped right on it. That was no surprise; she is as talented as she is beautiful. As for Flip, he gets up close and personal on "Sunshine", he's still a player but not on the courts on this track."

And Flip himself had a few words about the song too, ""Sunshine is a little different from what people have heard from me. I wanted a smooth track for the ladies this time. My manager Sandy originally
did the song for Lea but then decided to put me on it. When I heard the track, I got right on it and wrote it in fifteen minutes! I wanted to lay down the rules for dating a rapper like myself. Since I'm always on the road, she has to be patient. I'll definitely be in touch once I get into town but I can't stick around for too long. I can't be a steady boyfriend because of my schedule, but when I have the time, I will definitely give it to my babygirl. I touch on these things in the song. I think everyone will appreciate "Sunshine", both the males and females.

news 1087996096 - December 31, 1969 By : Dirty Dirty rapper T.I. who was in the news last week for shooting an unauthorized video in prison, had dissed Lil Flip on stage at Atlanta's Summer Jam, calling him out for calling himself the King Of The South. Flip now responded to that, here is what he had to say:

"“I hear T.I. is on stage with like 20 of his men supposedly ready to confront me when it was my turn to take the stage. First of all, I was late and it was supposed to be over. At that point the police and the venue people kept us off the stage, they were gonna shut it down and leave. Dude is on stage mad, claiming he’s the King of the South, and that I said he wasn’t. Everybody knows the real king of the south is Scarface. All I gotta say is that I don’t even KNOW him. If we wanna talk who’s hotter, I’ve been all over the mix tape scene, now I’m all over the mainstream scene, off the strength of my own hustle. A lot of people have been coming at me, and I really don’t have the time to address all of them. Like they say; mo money mo problems. That’s all I gotta say, Ima keep doin’ me regardless, I got a new hit record out. I’ve been in so much beef in my life, I’m happy to be here and still be living. I don’t know if dude’s been through half of what I’ve been through. I’ve been living with some real demons in my life, and niggas that know my story know what’s up so I don’t need to do anything extra to draw more attention to myself. I mean, I hear he’s calling out my peoples Luda and DTP too so I guess it’s just part of the game for him, a publicity stunt to move some more units. I guess he’s just mad cause I f*ck with everybody else in ATL but him. Look at my album; I got Pastor Troy, Luda, Killer Mike and Baby D. ATL is like my second home. And I guess he’s mad ‘cause he did a verse for the Game Over remix and I didn’t use it. Bottom line, I’ve put in my time. If he wanna take it there, I mean he got a team, I got a team too, so its whatever. Otherwise, go find another way to sell records ‘cause I am selling records”"

Let's hope this gets squashed and the united force of the south doesn't start breaking up like the West has been... To me though, the only person who can call himself the King Of The South is Scarface without a doubt.

news 1088535771 - December 31, 1969 By : The Pedestrian is walkin’ it like he talks it on this hookladen, jeep ready album slated for release by Blak Ice Records. Third Degree, who hails from South Central Los Angeles, grew up living right around the corner from Dub C of Westside Connection. “I went to Hiphop High,” says Third. “Washington High School was where I came up. A lot of hiphop people have gone there, like Dub C, Crazy Tunes from The Maad Circle, YoYo, DJ Alladin, and Sir Jinx, who DJ’s for Xzibit, and more. Crenshaw High may have had the sports people locked up, but Washington has had the music people.” Third Degree is destined to be the next hiphop alumni to speak with authority.
With rhymes constantly flowing out of every pore of his being, Third is definitely at no loss for words. The album, which is largely produced by the musically eloquent Yabie, is tightly packed with 21 serious tracks, including the runaway single “Do My Thang.” This quotable album is consistent all the way through, with no fillers or throwaway tracks. “I like real writers who have subjects and topics,” he professes. “I’m a purist kind of guy.” Third points out that Yabie’s work “sounded like music, it didn’t just sound like beats. He had a whole band of people available to play guitar, bass, all that. He thinks in a very musical way.” In this manner, he compares Yabie to DJ Quik. “He’s got a unique style. I can’t quite figure out his formula.” The single, "Do My Thang," will be out soon.
The battle-ready rapper’s name came his basketball days. “We called ourselves the Burn Unit,” he says. “We had names like Thermostat, Third Degree and Lava Rock.” Third’s government name is Wayne Guillory. “Like guillotine. It’s French,” he explains. “All my people come from Louisiana.” Either way, the world is his. It’s Wayne’s world, as he’s young, gifted and black, and prolific to an extreme.
His father was a coach, who lost his life to cancer. “My mom was real concerned about me after he died. That year, she asked me what I wanted for Christmas, and I told her. Had my father lived, I would have definitely not gotten those turntables!” he reminisces, shaking his head with a smile. Third became obsessed with hiphop with gospel-like devotion, and he began interpreting the world through the mind of a rhymesman. It seemed that every event in life was suddenly transformed into a searing rhyme by the verbal prodigy.
The prolific Third notes, “The single “Do My Thang” is a way to introduce me to people. I felt it was representative of where I was coming from. It lets people know a couple things about me, and I feel it describes me,” explains Third.
“My raps give people another view of Los Angeles. People who don’t live here think it’s all either gangbanging or Hollywood. L.A. is not all about being a gangsta. I just wanted to make this record about the regular person in L.A,” he concedes. Third believes there’s a lot of pressure to rap about banging, because some of the earlier great L.A. rappers before them. “People who don’t even gangbang,” he points out. “I think rappers should talk about what they do. If you gangbang and you rap, talk about gangbangin’ in your rap. If you sell crack all day, talk about selling crack all day. Whatever it is that is you. That’s what “Do My Thang” is all about. Just be yourself. If it’s you, do it. If not, don’t do it.” He adds, “Some of my best friends bang. But that’s them. It just never occurred to me to do that.”
As far as his home front, Third’s neighborhood is well-known for being Crips territory. “NHC, Neighborhood Crips. Them and Watergate Crips. They’re kind of borderline,” he observes. “Slip from Comptons Most Wanted, he stayed in the Watergate for a while. As far as the NHC, Dub C, Cube and Crazy Tunes stayed there.” He comments that there’s just one little street that separates everybody.
The intersection on the album’s cover is the nearby corner of Imperial and Western. However, in many ways, Third’s songs reflect corners all over the country, so his rhymes hit home with those who are both near and far.
Jay Z and Ice-T may have “99 Problems,” but Third says he has “Problems” of his own. “The reason I wrote the song “Problems” is that for some reason, people always come talk to me about things they need to get off their chest. So I listen a lot. One day I was arguing with my mother, and that was one of the things that came out. I’m not saying don’t talk to me about your problems. I’m just saying come back in a while, because I have mine to figure out.” Some of Third’s own deepest, personal predicaments are revealed in the song, including the fact he has a handicapped brother.
The inspired “Stylistic” is one of Third’s favorite tracks on the album. “I was listening to “Betcha By Golly Wow,” and I like to make up words to songs, so that’s how that came about. It’s basically telling people I have a new style here in L.A.,” says Third. “I studied niggas’ style and found what not to do, it’s the total opposite, I rock it better than you, whoever you are niggas bite and get trophies, a Grammy for their best Tupac on Karaoke.”
“Hit This 40” is a party song, and it’s also an anti-gold diggers song. Its 40 proof melody came about much in the same way, but it comes from a Chaka Khan song called “Night In Tunisia,” which Third used that part for the song’s chorus. Going even deeper, he explains, “It’s actually a remake of a Coltrane song or something like that she was doing.”
Observes Third, “The culture of Los Angeles is gangs, and people get influenced by it a lot, like the white t-shirts and all, so it definitely isn’t all hip hop here. However, I can take you to places here that are definitely hiphop. But yes, a lot of it is gang culture here. People in the parks out here aren’t breaking and rapping against each other; it’s probably drinking and smoking weed, and a fight is going to break out any minute. But still, there is definitely a hiphop community in this city.” The disc’s determined track “The One” is Third’s way of saying, “I’m entirely here for hiphop.”
With “Favorite Shade Of Brown,” it’s all good, and love comes in all shades to Third.
“Eye Candy” features Pupa Don, one of the illest West Coast dancehall cats.
There are a slew of other radio driven songs on the album, and the Pedestrian is no doubt, walking tall. You’re now at that intersection of hiphop beats and masterful rhymes, as the Pedestrian is making his way through your speakers.

news 1090935615 - December 31, 1969 By : F.B.I. Indicts Rapper Big Hutch of Above The Law For Conspiracy To Traffic A Controlled Substance, Rapper Says Music Business Is Special Target For Feds.

(Los Angeles, CA)---Federal authorities have indicted Big Hutch (AKA Gregory “Hutch” Hutchinson) for conspiracy to traffic one thousand pounds of marijuana in a case pursued by agents the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Hutchinson will begin serving his sentence on July 28. Hutchinson says, “I was driving, and federal marshals pulled me over, and picked me up. They told me I had been indicted for drug trafficking.” Hutch, who is a member of the rap group Above The Law, recently released his second solo album, Live From The Ghetto. He first came into prominence when his group was signed by the late Eazy-E to his Ruthless Records label.

Hutchinson explained, “Some other guys had been arrested, who I hadn’t had any contact with for a while. They gave the feds my name, and said I financed their drug operation, which isn’t even true. When the feds interviewed me, they didn’t ask me who I knew who was involved in drugs. Rather, they asked me who in the music industry was involved in drugs. They were just interested in people who worked in music business. So I kind of wonder if that’s why these other guys used my name, since that is what the feds want to hear.”

“Since hearsay is admissible in federal trials, unlike in other court criminal proceedings, I knew it would be impossible to fight this, so my attorney advised me to cop a plea,” said Hutch. He added, “There was never any trial. A motion was simply filed to determine what my sentence would be.”

He further contended, “One of the other peoples’ phones who was tapped was someone who was working at my company. So I became a victim through that. The feds should have known from the conversations I had nothing to do with it. There was no reason for me to be put under scrutiny.”

Hutch commented, “It was ridiculous. They were trying to claim that I financed their drug operation, and that I was the beneficiary because I have a record label. No one could prove it, but because of the association with these guys, they charged me with conspiracy. I never put any money up for their activities. However, the federal process allows hearsay, and there was hearsay that I knew what these guys were doing. So that alone, according to the feds, makes you part of the operation, even if you have utterly no function whatsoever in it. You essentially become a criminal, solely based on the fact that you have knowledge of an illegal activity being committed. I ended up getting charged for several years for a crime I had nothing to do with.”

Hutch also said, “Hearsay that is based on the claims of government witnesses who are trying to get sentenced less time on their case, and who therefore give people up like this, is all the feds have to have. Then the feds can make a conviction, solely based on that.”

A music video for Hutch’s single “Lyrical Murder” has just been released through West World/Activate Entertainment.

We did a video interview with Big Hutch recently. Lookout for that Exclusive video interview in the coming days

news 1091484009 - December 31, 1969 By : We all know West Coast Hip Hop has been strugglin' to get exposure for the past couple of years. This musical slump might have many different reasons, it might be the artists not putting out top notch music, or the industry intentionally blackballing the West Coast...

One thing's for sure though, we want this to change. And this is why DubCNN, the West Coast News Network, is teaming up with Enexes, your Entertainment Gateway. Together, we're going to start a new movement, and it's in motion as we speak. The A&R of Enexes, Frank Nitty, who many of you might know as THE man behind everything going on on the West Coast, is recruiting an army of soldiers, hungry to record new music. Not just the same shit you've been hearing over and over. But some FRESH music.

Dileone, the CEO of Enexes.com, is backing the movement by providing us with the studio, where Goldie Loc from Tha Eastsidaz has eagerly been recording for the past few months along with the legendary Chocolate and many more. I'm not going to disclose too much about the new projects, as it's still in the beginning stages, but we will be having regular updates, right here on DubCNN.com, so stay tuned.

Now on to the alliance between Enexes and DubCNN. We're taking HipHop on the internet to the next level. If you aren't hip to Enenex yet, hit up

I know we've been kinda slow with the updates and interviews in the past few weeks, but believe me, you're not prepared for what's about to come. I'm not even gonna spoil it for you, just sit back and watch, DubCNN is gonna bring you more than just news and interviews on the West Coast.

news 1092827127 - December 31, 1969 By : When I first arrived backstage they told us digital cameras and videocameras were forbidden. Even the tv station in Sweden wasn't allowed to film or take pictures..
After a few hours of waiting 50 Cent and G-unit showed up,
they had cleared the backstage area and all backup artists were moved into this big tent or was forced to sit around the taped area so they wouldn't be able to speak to 50 Cent and crew when they arrived.
My friend from Kingsize magazine was with me and he did a interview with them the day before after signing a 20 page contract he spoke to them for a few minutes without cameras etc.
Youngbuck had been without weed for a few days and all he kept asking him was "can you please get some weed".

Anyways I had spoken to Youngbuck about hooking up so when he saw me in the tent he sent his bodyguard and got me. I went back and met 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks and Youngbuck.
I'll just put it like this he was so happy about Yash gettin him some of that sticky icky that he gave me the hotel room nr with a big smile on his face:)

The Game wasn't there and Tony Yayo had a restraining order so he couldn't leave the country.

They smoked some chronic and headed up the stage to do the show.
50 started with ”What up gangsta”, ”Wanksta” and ”21 questions" in a fastpase tempo then came his biggest hit "In Da Club" and the 10 000+ crowd went crazy.
After 15-20 minutes 50 Cent started doing G-Unit songs then Lloyd Banks did "On Fire" with crazy fire effects.
Youngbuck later did a few songs from his upcoming album.
I was surprised that most of the people knew the lyrics to "Let Me In". Because they haven't played that song in scandinavia that much. After each song they performed they ended with a Gunshot that Dj Whoo Kid is famous for in his mixtapes.
50 Cent finnished up with "If I Can't" and a few other solos.
He stopped the music took off his cap and threw it out and told the crowd I gotto give yall something to remember me by then took off his new G Unit Boots and threw those out aswell which unfortunately hit one girl in the head and knocked her unconcious for a few minutes. He even dropped his diamond ring while he threw stuff out but they later found and gave it back to him.

After the show I went to the hotel where we where planning to do a few interviews. Now that The Game and Yayo wasn't there I was thinking of doing a interview with just 50 Cent but he was so tired so he went to his room and slept.

So I took Youngbuck and his peoples to the club called KB in Malmo. Oh boy we had a great time partying we even went on stage got Youngbuck a mic and he rocked the club and tookover the Dj's job.

Youngbucks new album has been pushed back and he has recorded new songs that will replace some of the ones that were leaked to the internet.
Youngbuck was one of the nicest most humble people i've ever kicked it with too bad the people in his security and entourage was straight assholes to people in general.

We will post a 50 Cent Interview which my boy from Kingsize magazine did later this month. So be on the lookout for that and make sure you go out and cop Youngbuck's album "Straight Outta Cashville" BOOOOOW!

news 1092888008 - December 31, 1969 By : “You don’t have to go to L.A. to get your MC Eiht,” Lloyd Banks contended on his debut album, Hunger For More, which entered the Billboard pop chart at Number One. Banks’ assertion on his madly successful album keenly demonstrates how deeply it is ingrained within hiphop consciousness that MC Eiht is known as being the streets’ ultimate spokesperson for the West Coast. Period.

As signified by the title of Eiht’s new album, Veterans Day, slated for release on September 28, Eiht is one of the true O.G.’s of L.A. hiphop, a true veteran of the ghetto, emerging in 1989, with the debut release from Comptons Most Wanted, It’s A Compton Thang. Coming into the game, Eiht rolled along side Tha Chill, their luminary scratcher DJ Mike T and producers Slip and DJ Unknown. Cited as a select musical inspiration for producer/director John Singleton’s classic film, Boyz In The Hood, the group’s single, “Growin’ Up In The Hood” was picked as the single for the film. Eiht’s releases with CMW, Straight Check’n Em and Music To Driveby quickly became West Coast underground classics. Eiht, who has graced the cover of the Source Magazine twice, appeared in the Hughes Brothers’ feature film Menace II Society, and also achieved critical acclaim for his indelible single, “Streiht Up Menace,” which appeared on the film’s multi-platinum selling soundtrack, which held the Number One spot on the Billboard Top 100 R&B Albums Chart for eight weeks. We Come Strapped, which quickly achieved gold status, created controversy for its no holds barred attack on racist police officers, and was eventually attacked in a speech by then Presidential candidate Bob Dole. Rolling Stone Magazine was among the media outlets that joined in the frenzy to address the fact that Eiht’s record label, Epic Records, felt compelled to issue an extra warning sticker on the disc, which stated that Eiht’s lyrics were not necessarily the opinions of the Sony label.

Eiht released Death Threatz and Last Man Standing, officially ending his time with Epic, and then he signed with Priority, releasing Underground Hero, Section 8 and N My Neighborhood. Always in demand, he has accepted numerous offers to record duets on albums released by other artists, a few of which include Spice 1, Scarface and Pete Rock, but now he’s back on the solo tip with a new album, Veterans Day.

Eiht comes back for the kill with his new album, Veterans Day, released by West, Inc. Records though Native Records with distribution by Ryko’s Penalty Associated Labels. Again, as noted by the album’s title, Eiht is reveling in the light of a long career that has garnered him sheer respect from the streets, as well as countless props from other artists. On Tupac Shakur’s birthday this year, L.A.’s KWPR 106 FM re-broadcast the interview during which Pac stated that when he was in prison at Dannemora, he fervently listened to MC Eiht’s music. When Ludicris broadcast his video countdown on MTV, he opened it up with Eiht’s “Streiht Up Menace.” To Eiht, these were not just props---they were omens. “All of this just told me I needed to be working on putting an album out, to keep going. I had done some projects that were just to keep my name out there, but I realized this year that I really wanted to do a significant album, which will actually be my very first since being in the Priority situation.” Despite his heavy reputation in the hiphop world, Eiht acknowledges, “To some people, this will be my first solo album, because they weren’t around for my prior releases, and to them, this will be my first album.”

The production on Veterans Day was done by Tha Chill, who has also recently recorded tracks for Snoop Dogg’s 213. There is one exception, and that is the track, “Some Of These Thugs,” produced by Prodeje of South Central Cartel.

>From its provocative intro, “Vetz Day,” Eiht takes the listener into the streets with him. He potently explains of the album’s opening, “It’s the national anthem, but this version is our national anthem, for those that can relate to it. It’s national throughout ghettos everywhere. You’ll listen to it, and you’ll say, ‘That’s real what he’s saying there,” referring to the police violence, the people, my generation, and he’s trying to make a point.”

Among the album’s tracks is “Gangsta Smash,” which Eiht describes as “a gangsta groove song. It’s just telling gangstas to mash to this groove."

“It’s Alright” deals with the problems and struggles going on with males and females as they hustle up and do what they need to do to keep food on the table.

Being a true vet, “We Made It 2004” derives from a song CMW did on their first album. Eiht says, “We had a clean version, a radio version on that album, so we recreated it here. We made it a street version for 2004.”

Words from the wise, “Nobody Beat Us,” says Eiht, is a Biz Markie remake. “Like nobody beats the business,” pontificates Eiht, but I’m saying that nobody beat us. I’m using old school sounds on this record, using a little Biz Markie and UTFO. I think people will like this cut that features people from my era who started out with early hiphop.” It has a bit of an East Coast feel to it. It’s all West music again, however, when Eiht returns with “Streets Don’t Love You,” which Eiht describes as “more steered towards classic Eiht, CMW music. It’s that old Barry White that we’re known for. CM-Dub is known for heavy Isaac Hayes, the Meters, stuff like that. I was thinking of veteran shit, old school shit, trying to do something significant, so people would say, ‘That’s classic Eiht right there.’ It’s explaining the circumstances that we live in today.”

“I speak for the people on the streets and the underground,” notes Eiht. “I try to keep my music on that level. I don’t deal with how much money there is, or how much it’s going to cost to get a chick that is a celebrity. I can’t talk about people in Compton riding around in Bentleys and going to the clubs, messing with models. We don’t even have any clubs in Compton. My music is about being in the neighborhood, being around real people, who are stuck in the struggle of doing whatever they be doing, every day jobs, dope dealing, trying to take care of their families.”

He adds, “A lot of guys never get a chance to do what I’ve been doing, but I still stay true to where I started, still being able to connect with folks. That’s why I feel I can touch a lot of people.”

You don’t have to go to L.A. to get your MC Eiht, because instead, you can go to the nearest place where there’s a record store, and get a copy of Veterans’ Day. Geah.

news 1093454085 - December 31, 1969 By : G-Unit solo artist "The Game" (damn, it still feels weird calling Game a G-Unit artist!), who recently dropped his street single "Westside Story" (scroll down a bit to download it) from his upcoming "Nigga Wit Attitude" album dropping in October, has been busy making appearances on mixtapes and create a buzz.

Here is a song that sounds very much like Dr. Dre production, but is produced by Anthology called "Put Me Under", it's banging:

The Game - Put Me Under

Enjoy!

news 1094027566 - December 31, 1969 By : Thanks to the homie Lil Jay from Westcoast2k.net for the following:

ince 213's "The Hard Way" didnt have any Warren G production on it, it was only right for the G-Child to go ahead and remix the first single "Groupie Luv". And what can you say... Warren laced a laid back beat which has that smooth G-Funk sound that his fans love to hear. Tracks like these keep me wondering why they didnt let him produce any songs on the album... We got the audio up for you to listen: 213 "
Groupie Luv (G-Funk Remix)".



Also, please sign this petition which urges Warren to take into consideration a Warren G Remix Project for the 213 album. Who knows if its gonna work, but it wont hurt to try.

news 1094495186 - December 31, 1969 By : I had heard that 98.9 More FM in San Diego had been bought out and their playlist was changed to fit the usual format. So, as I got it confirmed, the homie Angel from WCRydaz posted this:

They got bought off and I don't blame it on the buyer, blame it on the seller. Dude sold out, he didn't even know how much he was helping underground artist. All day you could hear: Mitchy Slick, Jayo Felony, Bad Azz, Damu, Mr. Lil-One, Shysti, Mr. Shadow, Knightowl, Lil' Rob, Psycho Realm, Cypress Hill, Damizza, as well as Kurupt, Daz, old Snoop Dogg, WSC, Ice Cube, WC, Knocturnal, Roscoe, Quik, E-40, Sly Boogy, Guerilla Black, and so on, were also on heavy rotation.

Now all you hear is Usher, Lil' Jon, Ciara, Nelly, and shit they never played before.

i've personaly talked to their dj's like billy blast, seize, and yesi ortiz. they told me they arnt even allowed to play what they want and that every complaint they get they record it and show it to management in hopes that they will change back. so its not their fault.

Us here at DubCNN, Angel and so many more ask you to call (619)230-0189 or log on to their chat room 989morefm.com and if the staff is in there complain!!!!!!!

I thank Angel for the info and the write up. This was one of the few media outlets that showed love to the West Coast and now it's gone. We urge you to call and complain. They were starting a trend and it got cut short. Call! E-Mail! Anything!

news 1095113825 - December 31, 1969 By : I got this E-Mail from Big Shysti today:

The First Annual Latin Rap Conference was a complete success…Thanks to everyone who participated.

LRC 2005 is already in the making. It will be held at the Harrah's Resort and Casino, in San Diego, CA February 1-3 in 2005.

We have big plans for taking our newly formed family to the next step of success. As you all know, we accomplished the hardest thing at the LRC 2004, coming together in a positive Forum. Now, we can move on and created an agenda for our goals.

As some of you already know, Rags and I quit the radio station we were working at (98.9 More FM) about a month after the conference. The PD also quit in support of our demands. Since then, the station has turned into another "Pop Clear Channel Wannabe" piece of shit.

Like we said in one of the seminars, we have to constantly take the risks necessary to advance our cause and sometimes, we have to face the conseuqences of taking those risks. It was a good ting all and all, however, because other acorss the Country have started to follow the format we created. That is progress.

I am writing to you all to inform you that the LRC 2005 is almost ready to go. The new site will be soon. For now, please visit the Here's the
Old site and hit up the message board with ideas and plans you have for LRC 2005. Remember that it is our conference...ALL OF OURS, and we can do whatever we want and accomplish as much as we want through the organization we formed in 2004.

To that end, please send us pics and videos of your experiences at the LRC 2004 for us to use on the site. We will give you credit on the site for your pics and/or video. We just want as much coverage as possible to remind everyone how it went down. It seems there were many different experiences, all positive, but all different.

Send Pics and Video To shysti@sbcglobal.net or to:

He disses the entire G-Unit crew and specifically The Game. Let's hope this doesn't escalate into an all-out war between the G-Unit and Bay Area, as it looks like many of Yuk's Bay Area homies might ride with him on this one.

We'll keep you posted, for now download "Game Over" below:

news 1095874676 - December 31, 1969 By : "If you listen to my lyrical content, I'm bigging up the West and saying how people forgot about how the West was won. I'm reminding them." — Game


Like his teammate 50 Cent did with "Wanksta," G-Unit's Game wants to get a buzz going by putting out a record for the 'hood, then hitting the masses upside the head with a blockbuster Dr. Dre-produced official single.

So far he feels he's on the right track.

"That's like my 'Wanksta,' " Game said of his current record, "Westside Story," also produced by Dre. "That ain't even the single, that's my street single. It's picking up like crazy. I took the title from the movie ['West Side Story']. If you listen to my lyrical content, I'm bigging up the West and saying how people forgot about how the West was won. I'm reminding them."

"Westside Story" features 50 on the hook rapping, "If you take a look in my eyes/ See I'll be a gangsta till I die/ That California chronic got me so high/ Game, tell 'em where you from/ Westsiiiide." There's also a version of the song with Snoop Dogg saying the identical rhymes as 50.

"Higher," Game's real-deal lead cut produced by the leader of the Aftermath Records squad, should surface soon.

"It's a club knock," he said of the record. "After that, we're off to the races. It's just 'Operation Bring the West Coast Back.' I'm happy to be a part of this sh--. It seems like everything is falling in my hands."

Besides 50 Cent, Dre and Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Nate Dogg and Mary J. Blige will also appear on Game's debut LP. If the Compton MC gets his way, he'll have yet another Cali icon on the album as well: the late Eazy-E. Nothing is definitive, but Game is contemplating adding the mixtape cut "Still Cruising," which features never-before-heard lyrics by Eazy.

"I didn't expect it to blow like it did, but since everybody is loving it, I might have to bonus track that," the 24-year-old said. "Red Spyda and Whoo Kid produced it. I don't know where they got the Eazy vocals from, but they found them. They brought them to me. I know every Eazy verse line-for-line and I never heard that one. I heard it, I ran out the studio. I couldn't believe that. I followed Eazy my whole life and to hear an unreleased Eazy track, I went bonkers."

As the ultimate show of respect to Eazy and Dre, who were both members of legendary rap crew N.W.A, Game wants to title his album N.W.A Volume 1, but that name might hit a red-tape snafu. Regardless, the LP is tentatively scheduled for release before the end of the year. Game is shooting the video for "Higher" in the next couple of weeks.
