On a slightly similar note, is it possible for anyone to start posting the Death Row leftovers and whatnot from back in the day? I remember them circulating the net from like 2003-2006, but hard to find the links these days...

Mac Shawn had made some what of a rapping career prior to Death Row with his group Funk Mobb which released their debut album in 1995. Not much is known about his time with this group, but it was short lived to say the least. Within less than three years after the release, Mac Shawn touched down on DPG Recordz which was a sub-label of Death Row Records.

Mac Shawn was fuckin with Sick Wid It records, i wanna say, since 1993. off my head hes on these Sick Wid It releases:

D-Shot- The Shot Calla- 1994
Celly Cel- Heat 4 Yo Azz- 1994
E-40- In A Major Way- 1995
Suga T- Paper Chasin- 1996
B-Legit- The Hemp Museum- 1996
Funk Mobb- It Aint 4 Play- 1996

UPDATED;

Nice job with the info,but the info about The Convicts needs to be updated though


what i need to add?


-Convicts was signed to and released a album on Rap-A-Lot before they got with Death Row.
The reason they went back to Rap-A-Lot is because J.Prince needed to replace Willie D in Geto Boys (for a minute),so he asked Big Mike.
Big Mike had originally written the Crooked Officer track for The Chronic (called Mr.Officer).

Dre talks about the Mr.Officer track in The Source Magazine

Snoop Dogg & Dubcnn - The Interview: Part 4 (Jan. '07)
http://www.dubcnn.com/interviews/snoopdogg07/part4/
Dubcnn: *laughs* Alright! Now we got another throwback question! Many people know that the song "Mr. Officer (Crooked Officer)", which appeared on the Geto Boys album, was going to be a song from the Chronic. How did it end up on the Geto Boys album?
Basically, that song... Big Mike had created that song! It was a Convict song, the group was called the Convicts! Big Mike and Lord 3-2, that was the act from Houston that Suge was gonna sign. Actually, Big Mike had created that song "Mr. Officer", we did that song late night one night, me, Lord 3-2, Big Mike and Warren G had produced it. So Dr. Dre heard it, flipped it, took it, made it his shit, but then he didn't really like it like that. Big Mike took it back to Rap-A-Lot, and the Geto Boys did it, cause he was the new Geto Boy. Does it make sense now?

Dubcnn: Yeah, I guess. Shit, I still would like to hear that version though, it probably don't even exist anymore, huh.
Shit, it probably exists! But who owns the masters to all that Death Row shit? It's a bunch of songs that we did that was dope as fuck that never came out that nobody never heard, that used to just be party classics! And I say that because Dre used to have parties every Friday at his house, and we had certain records that we would just play strictly at these parties! And they never made them real records, we just did the songs in the back, and whenever the party got cracking we popped this record on, and muthafuckas would get to grooving! Bam, boom, that just was a party classic!

-3-2 formed Blacī Monks with A.W.O.L,D.A and John Bido (the producer),on Rap-A-Lot.
More info about 3-2

-Big Mike is also know as the Peter Man.
Snoop shouted him out on Stranded on Death Row,
Big Mike sampled that line on his Peter Man track from his solo album Something Serious.

Big Mike interview in The Source September 1994, NO.60



Big Mike interview November 2008;
DX: I know you guys were either going to sign with Death Row or you did. Can you talk a little about that?
Big Mike: At the time they was putting Death Row together and they was choosing artists to bring up. I guess they liked the whole idea of The Convicts, Convicts being on Death Row, you know what I mean? So that's how that happened. We get a call and they tell us we going to Los Angeles. It just happened like that. That situation came about pretty quick. It was unexpected. We were down there working on a project being produced by Dr. Dre and the production team that was producing at the time for Compton's Most Wanted - DJ Slip and DJ Unknown. We was probably halfway into it and things kinda slowed down at Death Row. They started getting real heavy into The Chronic project, so everything [else] got pushed back to get The Chronic out - which is understandable. I had got the call around that time that Willie D had made an exit from [The Geto Boys] and they wanted to have somebody come in and fill that void. I thought about it, things wasn't really moving at [Death Row] and I thought it'd be a good idea for me to go and do the Geto Boys album and get my name out there further, to be all good for when I dropped my solo project.

DX: I heard that "Crooked Officer" was supposed to be a Dre record originally.
Big Mike: Well what happened was, when we was down there recording, I had some songs that I was working on. I was writing for my solo project and I let Dre hear the song. This was the time they was putting together tracks for The Chronic album. He heard it, he liked the song, he wanted to use the song. But I didn't know that he wanted to use the song on The Chronic, because after that I had headed back to Houston and I used the idea on the Geto Boys album.

DUBCNN: Exclusive Interview With Big Mike! (Geto Boys/Dr. Dre/Death Row/Six2) (The thread) link


Dubcnn: You talked a little bit earlier about being out in L.A. with Dr. Dre and Death Row.
Were you actually signed to Death Row?

Yeah, they had got at us; they liked us. I don’t know the details they had worked out with the owner of Rap-A-Lot to make it happen, but we ended up down there actually recording the album that was going to be released on Death Row. But with things the way they were there, even before the whole falling out with Dre leaving and what not, I just didn’t see my music coming out any time soon. So, when the Geto Boys’ offer came about I thought about it for awhile and I compared it like, ‘I’m out there with Dre; I’m out in L.A. with Death Row and some sh-t’s about to be popping off, but I wasn’t getting the attention’. I’m not talking about the fans ‘oohing’ and ‘ahhing’, I’m talking about the business attention, getting in the studio and them letting me know when I’m coming out. That wasn’t being provided to me and at the time I was hungry; I was ready to get it! But it was all love though; even after the Geto Boys album we still f-cked with each other, but it was after the big falling out that we all lost touch with each other.


Dubcnn: The Convicts project that was on Death Row, did that have Dre production on there, or what was that project going to sound like?

We were working with guys like DJ Unknown, who was known for doing a lot of 2Pac’s work, and Big Slip; both of them produced 2Pac. Dre he was doing some production; we had gotten probably 6 tracks into the project and I used some of those ideas for the Geto Boys album, like “Mr. Officer”, “Gangster Original”, “No Nuts, No Glory”. I took sh-t like that and used it on the Geto Boys album.


Dubcnn: I was going to ask you about that track “Mr. Officer”. Can you tell us the history on that track because there’s been a lot of talk about how it was meant for The Chronic and whatnot.

At the time we were there, Dr. Dre was putting together The Chronic and people were contributing to the album because everybody knew that their success rode on the success of that record. We all did it because we wanted to, not because we were forced to. We all took the attitude that we wanted to be a part of something big. We all knew something big was happening, so I had done the song, he heard it and he wanted to use it on The Chronic. So, when I came to the Geto Boys, while there was still some uncertainty with Death Row, I used that song on the Geto Boys’ album. It didn’t hurt anyone’s pocket but mine, you know? I did alright with the Geto Boys, but The Chronic sold I don’t know how many millions of records! But, man, you can’t live with regrets so it’s all love. That was me taking my shot on myself and, I mean, it worked out for me.


Dubcnn: So, did “Mr. Officer” sound the same on ‘Til Death Do Us Part as it did when you were doing it with Death Row?

Nah, man, the music was on a totally different vibe.


Dubcnn: Did Dre produce the original?

Yeah.


Dubcnn: What other tracks or projects were you involved in during your time on Death Row?

Well, it was right around the time they did the Deep Cover soundtrack and they were working on that and I left while they were in the process of working on it. That’s the only thing I had the opportunity to work on. I mean they wanted the songs, but Rap-A-Lot decided that they were going to keep that work. I would have worked out something with them, but when other people have their money up you just have to do what you have to do sometimes.

For real,I remember they even played this joint in clubs  :o back in 93.  :P

Wonder if Big Mike got the sketch he did for Dre.
Since it was Dre's favorite off all the tracks Dre planned to put on The Chronic at the time,that shit must be dope as fuck.  :P

If anyone wants to put up the money you can get a good portion of Dre's Mr. Officer from the Birth Of A Nation documentary. It features a good clip.

It'll cost you $225 though. Good luck finding it.

I got mine already.

FILMMAKER SUES HBO'S 'BASTARDS' OVER FOOTAGE: Matthew McDaniel says doc used 1992 riots clips without asking.

       *African-American filmmaker Matthew McDaniel was shocked to see video footage he shot during the 1992 Los Angeles riots as part of the recent HBO documentary "Bastards of the Party," especially since no one involved with the film asked him if the clips could be used.

       McDaniel, who says he's spent the last 20 years documenting the condition of blacks in America, has filed a federal lawsuit in Los Angeles against HBO, Antoine Fuqua, Fuqua Films, and Cle "Bone" Sloan for copyright infringement, fraud, breach of contract, and unfair competition. The lawsuit seeks both monetary damages and injunctive relief.

       The footage in question was also used, with permission, by Dr. Dre in his groundbreaking 1992 rap album, "The Chronic," as well as in McDaniel's award-winning documentary "Birth of a Nation: 4-29-1992."

       "Bastards of the Party," directed by former gang-banger Cle "Bone"
Sloan and executive produced by Fuqua, takes an in depth look at the history, proliferation and future of the Crips and Bloods in Los Angeles.


The only thing him and Dre have in common. Lol.

Sounds like it was a working title for "Murder Was The Case";

Here's a preview article in The Source July 1993,# 46,Cypress Hill cover.
They talk about a cut called "God Don't Like Ugly".
The track has been discussed before,so just search the board.  ;)
