thanks for the scans Chad, I remember that "Doggs 4 Life" was actually in the Fat Tape section of the Source in early '99 featuring DMX and Snoop

yeah,remember there was a track that didn't make it in the fat tape section,but can't remember that DMX was supposed to be on it? was it a remix for a mixtape or some shit?

I remember a Doggs 4 Life that specifically had DMX on it, but I am not sure whether the other artist was Snoop or RBX it might have been RBX, then I read somewhere else later that the track never existed some weird shit like that, but I would like to get to the bottom of that track and if I ever had a chance to interview Dre I would specifically ask him about it and if he ever worked with DMX, very interesting to me

I might look and see if I got that issue. But the Fat Tape section was supposed to be the tracks that they felt at the source office at the moment right?

He even say some of them is really good,but too uptempo to fit on the album.
Probably some NWA type of shit,Ren said in his interview with thaformula (the interview is posted here,so just search the forum)
that there was a gang og leftovers from Niggaz4Life too.
yeah probably, but even a few tracks on the chronic aren't slow jams ( though dre says that all tracks on that album are slow jams); apparently he still thought that they would fit on the album(which doesn't bother me; slow jams or not, as long as they're good g-funk tracks, it's all good).
those uptempo songs would sound great. a person named "mellowman" said on this forum that, Mr.Officer was played in the background on a documentary called rebirth of a nation ( which was about the LA riots), so Mr.Officer might not be unreleased at all  8)

according to Ronin Ro's book, interscope didn't allow the song on there, since it's parent company, Time Warner, caught a lot of heat because of the song Cop Killer.

Ain't there a way to get a copy of the Rebirth of a nation documentary?


don't know, it doesn't seem to be so well known.

he got a woody in his boxers? :-X :-X
:laugh: according to ronin ro's book, dre wasn't satisfied with the compilation later either, but the reviewer is obviously overreacting  :laugh:
it's not even a dre soloalbum, it was a compilation to introduce new talent on the label offcourse  ;)
dre only produced 6 tracks on it i believe.

He produced 7 of the tracks I believe.
I see that the review is written by Allen S.Gordon,
dude knows his shit he was part of the original Source magazine team and now writtes for Murder Dog.
But he got a loose screw sometimes like blameing The Chronic for fucking up West Coast music.  :P
(in a article he wrote for Murder Dog magazine,will post it later  ;)).

Video interviews



Dr.Dre; Stop The Violence Video for Dee Barnes
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/uF_2gIi5nHE&amp;rel" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/uF_2gIi5nHE&amp;rel</a>

Dee Barnes
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dee_Barnes


Denise "Dee" Barnes is an American rapper and former television personality, most famous for being slapped in the face by West-Coast rap producer and legend Dr. Dre. Barnes, whose stage name was D Zire, performed in the West Coast hip hop female duo Body & Soul, and hosted an influential radio show on KDAY prior to gaining wider fame as the host of FOX's hip hop show Pump It Up!.

Body & Soul's 1989 debut single "Dance To The Drummer's Beat", released on Los Angeles-based record label Delicious Vinyl, heavily sampled the Herman Kelly and Life song of the same name. It's b-side, "Hi-Powered", was produced by Def Jef. The same year another track produced by Def Jef would be released: "We Can Do This", on the label showcase This Is Delicious - Eat To The Beat. Body & Soul's greatest recording would apparently be their last - as part of the Dr. Dre-produced West Coast Rap All-Stars and their 1991 posse cut, "We're All in the Same Gang", which earned them a Grammy Award nomination.

In 1992, Barnes hosted the hip-hop special Sisters in the Name of Rap, taped at the Ritz in New York. [1]

Dr. Dre incident

After a 1990 interview with Ice Cube in which the rapper discusses his leaving N.W.A. at the height of their feud,[2], the group, feeling they had been negatively portrayed, sought retaliation. On January 27, 1991 Dr. Dre would encounter Barnes at a record release party in Hollywood. According to Rolling Stone reporter Alan Light:“   He picked her up and "began slamming her face and the right side of her body repeatedly against a wall near the stairway" as his bodyguard held off the crowd. After Dre tried to throw her down the stairs and failed, he began kicking her in the ribs and hands. She escaped and ran into the women's rest room. Dre followed her and "grabbed her from behind by the hair and proceeded to punch her in the back of the head." [3]   ”


N.W.A.'s MC Ren later said "bitch deserved it", and Eazy-E "yeah, bitch had it coming." As Dr. Dre explained the incident, "People talk all this shit, but you know, somebody fuck with me, I'm gonna fuck with them. I just did it, you know. Ain't nothing you can do now by talking about it. Besides, it ain't no big thing-- I just threw her through a door." Barnes sued in February 1991, telling reporter Alan Light: "They've grown up with the mentality that it's okay to hit women, especially black women. Now there's a lot of kids listening and thinking it's okay to hit women who get out of line."[3] In February, Barnes would file assault charges bring a $22.75 million lawsuit against Dr. Dre, who pleaded no contest to the assault. He was fined $2500, placed on two years' probation, and ordered to perform 240 hours of community service and produce an anti-violence public service announcement.[4]

The assault was yet another reason Bronx rapper Tim Dog went after N.W.A. on his 1991 diss "Fuck Compton" - "Dre, beatin' on Dee from Pump It Up!?/Step to the Dog and get FUCKED UP!" - and Eazy-E would later refer to the incident on his various disses of Dr. Dre and Death Row Records, including "Real Muthaphuckkin G's," "It's On," and "What Would U Do." It was again notably referenced in the 1999 Eminem duet with Dr. Dre, "Guilty Conscience." The song is an interplay between Slim Shady and Dre as the two sides of peoples' consciences - Dre being the "good" side - but Slim Shady recognized the absurdity, questioning "you gonna take advice from somebody who slapped Dee Barnes?" The incident was also mentioned by T.I. in "Never Scared" when he says "I'll choke yo ass out like Dre did that bitch."

The incident was #37 on Spin magazine's "100 Sleaziest Moments in Rock".[5]
