Chillin in Paradise

One of the centerpieces of the controversial group N.W.A. passed away yesterday.

Jerry Heller, the Manager who many claimed was behind the break up of N.W.A., passed away in his home Friday, just a month shy of what would have been his 76th Birthday.

Regardless of whatever happened during the rise and end of N.W.A., or the many twists and turns regardin Dr. Dre and Death Row Records,  many of Eazy-E’s closest friends and relatives took to Social Media thanking Jerry for his contribution to N.W.A. and to Hip-Hop in General for being an instrumental part in a group that moved so many.

Last year’s Box Office Smash “Straight Outta Compton” saw Jerry portrayed by Paul Giamatti, a role that would later lead to a lawsuit by Heller.

Thanks Jerry for the Historic Moments that Hip-Hop aficionados will never forget

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Tribute To Eazy-E On The West Coast All-Stars Stage At Planet Hollywood In Vegas posted by on December 29, 2012

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Paid Tribute To Their Mentor Eric “Eazy-E” Wright On Stage At The West Coast All-Stars At The Planet Hollywood Casino & Hotel Last Night.

They started out with Eazy’s Breakout Single “Boyz N The Hood” where all members joined along in reciting Eazy-s Famed Lyrics…, then leading it on into “For Tha Love Of Money”, where they allowed the Crowd to join in with Eazy-s verse, just to show how alive he still is through the Spirit and Power of Hip-Hop

And Eazy was the first.. Bone then brought in Biggie and Pac since they’re the few people who have recorded historic songs with both.

Props to Bone, for continuing to recognize where Hip-Hop has been with its original Pioneers, as well as continuing on in the tradition for all… and for Reppin the West And The East… And Everywhere In Between

Once In A Lifetime Moments For Hip-Hop And Vegas

Legends Gracin Stages, The West-Coast All Stars Takin Over Vegas

Last night was a Victory for the West Coast and for Hip-Hop, cause probably the Best Show in the World Last night was West Coast All-Stars at The Planet Hollywood Casino & Hotel In Las Vegas.

The show brought out Too $hort, E-40… All Five Members of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Ice Cube withi hiz boy WC and rounded out with Compton’s Game.

I would def call last night a Crowning Moment for West Coast to show off the Staying Power of its Legends, where all songs are just as sick as they’ve always been, and at this point now for Decades.

And dudes paid their Homage to those before those that are no longer with us.  Short gave shouts to Pimp C on his show.

And you know Bone Thugs had to give it up to Dude who’s responsible for them being able to shine before the World as they still do, Eazy-E.. Making them Official Branches of the N.W.A. Family Tree.  Then Lazyie, Flesh-N-Bone, Bizzy, Krayzie and Wish reminded the World that they are the only few that exist that had Classic and Legendary songs with both Tupac and Biggie.  So Bone did those songs in Dedication as well to the Greatest that have now Left our World Behind.

So we have to give Props to our Remaining Legends.  And they Def rocked the Packed House last Night.

Peep Game and Stay In Tune for More from the show

EXCLUSIVE: Super Producer Kannon “Cavie” Cross Is Set To Rewrite Hip-Hop’s History Books posted by on November 9, 2011
Share

Kannon "Cavie" Cross... The Spirit Of Hip-Hop Past, Present, AND Future

The Life story of Music Producer Kannon Cross, a.k.a. “Caviar” a.k.a. “Cavie“, plays out like a Who’s Who of Hip-Hop’s Most Influential and Historic Figures.Take for example the fact that Cavie was plucked out of the streets of Compton as an adolescent at the ripe old age of 12 by none other than N.W.A. Co-Founder and Ruthless Records CEO Eazy-E, along with DJ Train after showing young Cavie the difference in lives he could experience if he went from the Streets to the Hip-Hop Scene. And so he did. A teenage Cavie was blessed enough to live out his teenage years under the wings of N.W.A. Members, Eazy, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, DJ Yella, MC Ren and the D.O.C., watching them put together what would now be considered legendary works in the Hip-Hop realm and its West Coast Gangsta Rap movement.

Cavie And DMX... In The Studio Doing What They Do Best

From there, Cavie moved to Blackground Entertainment, run by Barry Hankerson, uncle to the also legendary Aaliyah. At Blackground, Cavie worked with Hip-Hop’s greatest collaborative and creative minds, which not only included Aaliyah, but also Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott and Timbaland. Cavie’s relationship with Timbaland continues to this day, as the two are set to work on a few upcoming tracks. Cavie began working on several projects with Aaliyah, including songs such as “Back in One Piece,” featuring DMX. The song was a big hit on the “Romeo Must Die” soundtrack. Blackground also hired Cavie to work with R&B artist, Tank, producing songs such as “Street Life” and “My Freak.” Cavie even mentions how Aaliyah’s final album was set to be a double album, which was to feature various tracks from Cavie, but as we know, that double album would never come to be.

Cavie And Dr. Drew Pinsky's at DMX's taping for Lifechangers

Cavie has lent his musical fingerprints to artists that we all know and love, like Mack 10, Ice Cube, Xzibit, T.I. and DMX… but was recently called by none other than Cee-Lo Green himself to not only work on Cee-Lo’s upcoming solo effort, but to also add his musical talents to the upcoming and highly anticipated and long overdue Goodie Mob album, which brings Cee-Lo back to the Dungeon Family based crew, which includes T-Mo, Big Gipp and Khujo, that made them all famous along with Outkast. These projects are not the only albums on Cavie’s plate. He recently agreed to work with Teddy Riley and another album for Macy Gray, and he’s also crafting hits for the comeback albums for T.I. and DMX.

The Hip-Hop scene of the South is definitely familiar with Cavie’s work, after moving to Atlanta in 2001 and producing tracks for T.I., beginning with work on “Urban Legend” and continuing to “King”, where he produced the menacing track, “Undertaker”.   In the South, Cavie played his beats to Crime Mob, Young Dro and Ciara. Cavie also had the privilege of producing some of the late Pimp C’s last recorded songs.

Cavie, DMX And Yung Dre

And if that wasn’t enough… can you believe Cavie’s about to drop a track with Joe Jonas ??? Damn homey, talk about versatility. Versatility is definitely something that Cavie is all too familiar with, after his 2010 hit record with Macy Gray, “Beauty in the World”, generated several television placements including; “Ugly Betty”, “Law and Order LA”, “What Chilli Wants”, and the Ashton Kutcher film “Killers”. Other Macy Gray collabs also made it on the screens like “Kissed It” which became the Summertime theme the Bravo network and “Stand Up” which was in the movie “For Colored Girls”.

So when it comes to the real History of Hip-Hop, it’s time to scratch what you “think” you know… and it’s time you know what’s been really goin on.  The man with the Rock Hard “Cavie” has been filling your ears and souls with that funk that your favorite artists have lent their voices and minds to, all to be the influential move makers that Hip-Hop is known for.  And as Cavie prepares to set his eyes on his past dues of Superstardom, we can’t wait to see what Cavie will be releasing, both for others, as well as himself.

Cavie IS Hip-Hop

And if you’re not convinced yet, just check out the Exclusive Interview Cavie gave to SunOfHollywood.com, and prepare to relive the Ghost of Hip-Hop Past… only to see Cavie’s got the keys to the Spirit of Hip-Hop’s Future.

E.B. Wright Follows In The Footsteps Of Her Father… And Shakes Up The City Where I’m From posted by on September 9, 2011
Share

The Princess Is All Growd's Up

Erin Bria Wright, otherwise known as E.B. Wright, is bustin the scene wide open just like her father Eric “Eazy-E” Wright did so many years ago with Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella did with N.W.A.  The group is responsible for revolutionizing Rap and Hip-Hop by birthing the future of the West Coast Gangsta Rap Movement, so people should realize that Erin is in a sense Hip-Hop Royalty, somewhat of a Princess if you will.  ;)

News of her new single, “What I Wanna Do”, where she’s singin her Wright behind off,  hit the world this week and immediately she’s been blowin’ up the spot to see how she’s ready to enter into the arena.  She’s even been given her own Milkshake at Millions of Milkshakes in no time flat.  She beautifully named hers the “We Want E.B. Shake“, a  beautiful play on the title to her father’s song “We Want Eazy“.

And Wednesday definitely had to be a monumental moment for this young lady.  It was not only her Father’s Birthday, and not only did she launch her own Milkshake… But her single was also released on iTunes.  Doin it big girl.  And how beautiful that she wore a shirt in honor of Eazy.

When I had the chance to meet her for the first time, I had to let her know that her life is heading in a great direction and her musical direction is amazing. She should be proud of what she’s been doing with herself.  And since I also promised her that I would download her new single, here’s photographic proof that I downloaded it on iTunes.  And guess what, not only did I download it, but I downloaded it twice !!!

 

Am I Sure ??? You Damn Right I'm Sure !!

:)

You go girl.  We’ll be seeing a lot more of you soon.  I promise.  #Prophecy
