VIDEO: Dr. Dre “Kush” f/ Snoop Doog and Akon

“Still I am, tighter than the pants on will.i.am.” —Snoop Dogg

Still won’t believe Detox isn’t a figment of Dr. Dre’s imagination until I see it in stores—or as a ZIP file on my hard drive. ‘Til then, this “Kush” joint with Snoop Dogg and Akon has grown on me. Pretty good visuals can’t hurt. “Inhale, exhale…”

RBX – Ghostwriting For Dr. Dre

Former Death Row affiliate RBX speaks on ghostwriting The Chronic’s “Let Me Ride” for Dr. Dre. Interview is from How to Rap: The Art & Science of the Hip-Hop MC.

Still no Dr. Dre & Jay-Z single or Detox. But you knew that.

An in-depth, and rambling, interview with RBX from a few years back below. Interesting how his speaking voice sounds nothing like his apocalyptic tone on the mic. Never signed to Death Row? Good move. Signed to Hollywood Basic? Bad move.

Busta Rhymes: Still Zone Coastin’

Up in the place, true indeed.

Up in the place, true indeed.

This new Busta Rhymes mixtape, I Bullshit You Not, is tough. It’s actually courtesy of Busta and DJ Scratch, who provides all the beats. (Spotted at Rap Radar & Nah Right)

While Scratch isn’t rocking with EPMD anymore, his production discography is chunky with the booming beats. A number of them have been for Bussa Bus and this mixtape lives up to the sum of its parts. Peep “Director’s Cut” and “Foreign Currency” if you think I’m bulls**ttin’.

Busta Rhymes f/ Raekwon “Death Wish”

However, Busta needs to put that damn new album out. If I recall correctly, his proper album, B.O.M.B. (Back On My B.S.) was supposed to drop in early ’08 (when Busta was still on Aftermath/Interscope and the album was still called Blessed).
Over the years I’ve gotten to interview Busta a number of times and he never fails to provide insightful answers that reveal his deep respect for and knowledge of Hip-Hop history. Getting the early co-sign, and his his name, from one Chuck D meant Busta was going places. And from the video below, and this is no disrespect to Charlie Brown and Dinco D, Busta was the clear star of L.O.N.S.
