#SnoopDogg x #BET Rap City interview w/ #BigLez circa #1996........
Listen looking back on it now ....i didnt realize the pressure Snoop had on him during the recording of this album. I didn't understand back then but now everything is in its proper context and makes perfect sense.
U see when Snoop was recording this album, who was the #1 important person who wasnt there??? DR DRE!!!! Dre was the creative force behind Snoop's 1st album!! That album was / is a mega classic!! So imagine trying to follow that up without ur big brother there!! It will b damn near impossible! Dre packed his bags a left months before Snoop started on this album. So he was already in the hole. U think Suge was gonna help him?? 不不不不不不不不不不不 HELLZ NO!!! Only thing Suge worrying bout is nigga is u gon make this deadline for this album to release. He dont care bout all that other shit....is u gonna meet this deadline??
I remembet vivdly when this album dropped how terrible it was!! Alot of my friends at school was clowin this album. Once i heard it i couldn't believe the fall off between albums! I was shocked. But now i realize the quandry he was in and it wasnt good for him that Dre wasnt there.
But i tell u what...this was the only album u can say that was truly trash in Snoop's catalog. He recovered from this in a major way. Went to No Limit in '98 and ever since he been on a long run of success not just personally but in his music as well. Has a decade plus of hits and still goin strong.

#50Cent & #GUnit x #BET Rap City In The Booth w/ #BigTigger circa #2003..........
Man o man, i can't begin to tell u how huge G-Unit was at this particular time. I said many times before but these cats ran VA other than the Clipse & the Neptunes at that period! It was just crazy to see how people reacted to their music.
Everybody had their mixtapes and jammed them all in their cars! The big wait was for 50's album which was insane. Me & my friends knew when that album dropped it was gon break all kinds of records! That is just a moment in time that stays etched in my mind! Truly a memorable experience.
Also its amazing how 50 kept G-Unit afloat after Tony Yayo got locked up. He already had Lloyd Banks who at the time was one of the illest rhymers in hip hop during that period. Shiiiit, alot of cats was saying he was better than 50 lol. Dont think for one sec tho 50 didnt hear that, for him tho thats great cause he will tell u the better my crew is the better i am! See how thats works? Then he takes Young Buck from Juve's UTP camp and incorporates him into the group to take Yayo's spot. But in return 50 now has the south ridin wit him too.
U see 50's moves was well calculated and he knew what he was doin will always benefit in him the long run at the time.

#PMD ft. #DasEfx - Rugged & Raw circa #1996..........
Well up til this point, Erick Sermon (other half of EPMD) was doin his thing wit the Def Squad and other productions. The question started coming up like yo...where PMD at?
In '96 the wait was over and he dropped this right here!! Man i spazzed when i first heard this on Rap City!! It was that beat! That beat was insane!! That screaming vocal sample is what got me hooked!
This was another one of those records that was pretty hard to find back then...nobody round my way even knew who PMD was lol. Took me a few yrs but was happy as hell when i got it!! Still in my rotation today!! Gotta love this!!
