‘Welcome to Death Row’ Being Shopped as Sequel to ‘Straight Outta Compton’

Plans for a sequel to Straight Outta Compton look to be in motion as Welcome to Death Row is being shopped around as such.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the feature, based on the book and documentary of the same name, was pitched by the APA agency and continues the story that Straight Outta Compton started.

Although a sequel, Welcome to Death Row will obviously shine a light on the label that Suge Knight and Dr. Dre co-founded as well as other characters from Straight Outta Compton, such as Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur.

The other connection to Straight Out of Compton is one of the movie’s writer S. Leigh Savidge, who also penned the Welcome to Death Row book.

During their prime days, Death Row boasted an all-star roster of artists that included Dre, Snoop, The Lady of Rage, Tha Dogg Pound and Nate Dogg.

Even when Dre left the label after things went sour, as shown in the Straight Outta Compton film, the label still enjoyed success with Shakur until his death in 1996.

News of the Welcome to Death Row film comes as Straight Outta Compton continues its rule at the top of the box office with more than $100 million made in less than a month. As a result, the film has become the highest grossing music biopic in history.

Tupac, Bruce Lee, Elvis, and Other Dead Celebrities Very Much Alive…In Dutch Beer Ad

When celebrities often die at young ages, conspiracy theories naturally arise.  Tupac isn’t dead.  He’s in Cuba.  Elvis Presley, The King of Rock and Roll, is alive and well apparently.  Even Kung Fu legend Bruce Lee, has had his share of conspiracy theories.

Now we have a Dutch brewing company running with these theories , suggesting that these departed icons are, in fact, very much alive and lounging in a tropical paradise.

That includes the likes of the aforementioned Tupac, Elvis, and Bruce Lee.  It also includes Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Monroe, and John Lennon, all of whom are enjoying their time far removed from the realities of fame, according to Bavaria, which is promoting its new, fruit-flavored beer.

What do they do on this island? Monroe rubs suntan lotion on Tupac’s belly, the King lounges on an inflatable raft, and Cobain gags when Monroe’s skirt repeats the famous “Seven Year Itch” gambit. Then a ship approaches, and PANIC! The stars hide their tropical setup and take shelter, except Presley’s portly belly gives them away.

What do you think about this ad, and also does this ad really make you crave a fruit-flavored beer beverage?

Tupac ‘Sex Tape’ Sold To Private Collector

A sexually explicit recording made of late Rapper Tupac has been sold to a private “collector”.

Shot in 1991, the footage sees the iconic rapper engaging in a sexual act with an unidentified female.  The video was recorded by a reported friend of the Rapper who held onto the footage after his passing.

Now, after declining offers made by Adult entertainment companies hoping to buy and sell the explicit visual, the owner has now sold it to a private collector, billing the pornographers who had attempted to buy the flick from him “parasites”.

While the amount of what it was sold for has yet to be announced, it has emerged that Tupac’s family  is planning to block any future sales of the tape, preventing it from being seen by the public.

It’s also being reported that during the act, there was an unreleased Tupac song playing in the background which is sure to increase the tape’s value.  The tape saw bids that reached the $1 million dollar mark before it was sold to the unidentified owner.

Suge Knight is Back in the News

I am pretty sure that anyone who have a twitter account seen the post related to Suge Knight. The notorious man known for Death Row Records have been said to have been arrested for Tupac’s death, which is so false. But many ask was he involved in the Murder of one the most talented rapper? Many on Twitter seem to think so. Suge Knight also made a statement that Tupac is still alive. “Nobody has seen him dead” was Knight’s remark . If you look online many have seen him dead. There are pictures that prove that. All this has been brought up after Pac made an appearance at the Coachella 2012. Is Suge looking to get back into the spotlight?

Tupac’s Back! The Hologram that Made Millions Rock Out

Coachella gave millions of people the very thing that we still wished remained, Tupac.

The stunning show gave fans a look at what might have been if the late great was still around. The hologram of the notorious rapper cost the festival $100,000 to $400,000, a hefty price but well worth it as it captured the magic of Pac onstage with Snoop.

Rihanna Gets Tupac’s Thug Life Tattoo Tatted on Her Knuckles


The greatest rapper of all time, Tupac Shakur, has many fans, and Rihanna may be as big of a fan that we’ve ever seen here with  She showed her affection for the slain rapper by getting “Thug Life” tattooed across her fingers.

Tupac Shakur had the same words written across his stomach.

Rihanna tweeted a picture of her new tattoo, saying:

“All these bitches screaming that 2pac back  #THUGLIFE”

Rihanna got her Tupac tattoo from popular tattoo artist Mark Mahoney and it looks like Rihanna got another tattoo during her Tupac ink session. The singer posted another picture of herself lying on a table while Mahoney worked on her lower back. It isn’t clear what Rihanna got for her second tattoo.

It’s reported that Rihanna currently has 14 visible tattoos, including a musical note, the word “love,” and a Pisces.

Still, she has a long way to go if she wants to match her new idol.


Man Confesses to Being Part of Biggie’s Murder

Man Confesses to being A part of Biggie's MurderJust a month after Dexter Isaac’s confession of being involved with Tupac’s infamous shooting at Quad City Studios in NYC which ignited the East Coast-West Coast wars, another unsolved hip-hop crime may have receive a much needed boost.

Clayton Hill, a member of the Nation of Islam and an incarcerated federal felon has confessed to being an accessory in the murder of the Notorious B.I.G.   In a conversation via the CorrLinks email system for federal inmates, with Hip Hop DX, Hill recounted his meeting with Assistant U.S. Attorney Nancy DePodesta and two agents with the F.B.I.’s Domestic Terrorism Unit, where he revealed his knowledge of B.I.G.’s actual killer, a fellow member of the Nation of Islam who went by Dawoud Muhammad, who told Hill back in May of 1997, he was in fact on the run for the murder of B.I.G. and received $25,000 for the job.

“[Dawoud Muhammad] stated to me that he was on the run for the murder [of The Notorious B.I.G.] He disclosed that he was the shooter of The Notorious B.I.G. because he (Dawoud) was a former Blood gang member and was paid to do so.”

Clayton also has an e-book coming out entitled “Diary of an Ex-Terrorist”, in which he touches on Dawoud bragging about the hit that officially ended the hip-hop coastal feud with Biggie’s death.

As with Dexter Isaac’s confession there is also more uncertainty than celebration with this revelation.  Could Clayton be telling the truth or just trying to drum up some book sales with all of this new found press?  Hopefully this is onebstep closer into getting the full truth eventually.


If anyone have never heard this man’s smooth, soulful, yet gangsta voice on a song, you might as well been living under a rock. Hip-Hop lost one of it’s greatest pioneers of the hook, Nate Dogg, at the age of 41. The web is buzzing at this moment from fans to the major artist he certified with his authentic, west coast g-funk.

Nathaniel Dwayne Hale(Nate Dogg), who was also 1/3 of the super group, 213, alongside childhood friends Snoop Dogg and Warren G, and Tha Dogg Pound, graced the industry with many hits. Collaborating with big west coast pioneers and artist like Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, The Game, Kurupt, and the late Tupac Shakur.

The Industry is at a stand still as we remember a man that revolutionized “the hook”. Nate’s voice turned tracks into long-living ballads, unforgettable songs such as “Time’s Up” Jadakiss, “Area Codes” Ludacris, “The Next Episode” Dr. Dre, “Regulate” Warren G, “Shake that” Eminem, “Gangsta Nation” Westside Connection, and many others. Nate was a Grammy nominated artist that will never be forgotten.

The industry is in mourning, as twitter is being saturated with twits from friends and artist that were fans.


















Flo Rida – “Come With Me”


We’ve already seen one legend’s hit be remixed today.  What do you guys think about how Flo Rida flipped Tupac’s words?

Oscar-Winning Screenwriters Sign On to for Tupac Biopic

Antoine Fuqua’s forthcoming Tupac Shakur biopic will soon have a script: Two Oscar-nominated writers, Stephen J. Rivele and Chris Wilkinson, have been tapped to write the screenplay.

The scribes, whose writing credits include “Nixon” and “Ali,” told New York magazine that the film will focus on the late rapper’s final day, with flashbacks of the preceding four years of his life interspersed throughout. Rivele added that the script centers on their perception that Shakur was miscast in the hip-hop world in which he found himself.

“It became clear that he was essentially a 19th-century Romantic poet who found himself in the 21st century,” he explained. “He was a really sensitive, very romantic, talented young poet who also could sing, dance, and act. But the realities [of the hip-hop music business] were that he had to create this persona of the gangster.”

The film is tentatively slated to begin production later this year, according to the magazine. Fuqua has previously said he hopes to find a newcomer to play Tupac. “I want to go to the streets and find him anywhere he might be in the world,” the director said.

In addition to a fresh face, filmmakers intend to offer a new take on the life of the fallen rap star, who was murdered in 1996. Rivele explained that the movie won’t aim to resolve who murdered Shakur, but rather focus on who he was and the person he attempted to be. The movie will push a thesis slanted more toward asking why anyone would have wanted to kill the talented superstar.

Suge Knight Charged With Putting Hit On Man

It’s obvious that Suge Knight has pull.  From him “negotiating” the buyout of Vanilla Ice’s contract to him possibly being linked to two of the most, if not the most, high profile and unsolved murder cases ever.  A lot of people believe that Suge orchestrated hits on the the two greatest rappers of all time, Tupac and Biggie, even though those claims thus far have been unfounded.  Suge is now back in the news again for all the wrong reasons for supposedly orchestrating another hit just one day after being released from jail last week.  Here’s how TMZ’s reporting it:

One day after Suge Knight was released from jail last week, the rap mogul allegedly masterminded a murder plot … this according to legal documents.

An L.A. County Superior Court judge has ordered Suge to stay at least 100 yards away from a Los Angeles area man after an allegedly frightening encounter this past Friday.

According to legal docs filed Monday, the man claims Suge “had 8 guys come to my house and told them to get me or kill me.”

As TMZ previously reported, Suge was arrested Thursday morning for assault with a deadly weapon.  It’s unclear if the man who got the restraining order was involved in the prior incident — though he claims Suge later told him that “he was out now and going to take my life.”

Suge is ordered to appear in court to respond to the allegations on June 8.

Wherever Suge goes, trouble seems to follow.  Or maybe it’s because he and trouble are one.  Why can’t this dude just stay out of trouble?  He’s getting too old for this.’s Top 10 Least-Romantic Songs

February is upon us and love will soon be in the air for all you lovers out there.  With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, will be exploring several stories and topics involving love and romance and that led me to thinking about what is the least romantic sounding pick-up lines that someone could ever use.  Then I took that one step further and created a list of songs that actually used them.

Now I’m not saying these songs aren’t any good, because for the most part they all are, or at the very least the songs are catchy.   It’s just that even though the artists perform these songs with a certain swagger and confidence and ability in knowing that these lines will work with the ladies.  In the real world, it’s not going down like that.

Introducing my top 10 Least Romantic Songs, starting with…


Akon Feat. Snoop Dogg – “I Wanna F*** You”


When it comes to going after what you want, sometimes it is nice to be direct and get straight to the point. However, when it comes to love and trying to be romantic, I don’t think the third word of this song title is hardly ever used for romance, unless you’re a porn star.  Not to mention what Snoop raps in the first verse…

Grab you by your coat tail take you to the motel, “ho” sale,

don’t tell, won’t tell …

if you pick me then imma pick on you,

d-o-double g and I’m here to put this dick on you.”

Basically he tells the girl that he’s going to kidnap her and take her to a “ho” sale, asks her not to snitch on him because he plans on picking her if she picks him, and then tries to cover it up with some smooth pimp talk that I’m sure he got from The Bishop Magic Juan.  Doesn’t this kind of sound like the plot of “Taken”?


Nelly – “It’s Getting Hot in Here”

This song contains the least persuasive argument for female disrobement ever…and it worked because it was catchy.   I see the logic behind it’s getting so hot that she’d have to take her clothes off but even Jessica Simpson or Paris Hilton would’ve found an alternative to Nelly’s solution to the heat such as central air conditioning or maybe taking a dip in the pool.


James Brown – “Hot (I Need to be Loved, Loved, Loved)”


And staying on the “hot” theme, the King of Soul isn’t exempt from this list.  This song is downright scary.  In the first few lines of the song, James describes how he just woke up sweaty and that he’s in a need for love all while saying, well actually screaming and grunting that he needs to be loved.  I guess nothing can make a woman get all hot and bothered than an image of James Brown waking up sweaty from some nightmare he was apparently having, ready to get it on.


Wyclef – “Gone Til’ November”


When you love someone, you want to see as much of the person as possible.  So telling someone that you’ll be gone til’ November is not a good way to start the relationship.


Tupac – “I Get Around”


Again, being upfront with the person your persuing can be helpful.  But this song does not help to illustrate one of those times.  Yes, it may be commendable for Tupac to let the girl know up front that he’s a player.  But let’s face it, there’s nothing romantic about letting a girl know that she’s about to get played.


The Isley Brothers Feat. R. Kelly – Contagious


This past year was the year of the Swine Flu, so what woman in her right mind would want to keep getting reminded that her and her love is like a virus.  Viruses cause harm, if not kill, people!  And there’s nothing romantic about that.


50 Cent – “Have a Baby By Me”


There’s nothing romantic about enticing someone to sleep with you by claiming she’ll be a millionaire if you somehow impregnate her.  But if a woman can somehow get past her conscious in being able to do the deed, how can a she turn this offer down?  All she has to do is have a baby with Fiddy then she’ll become an instant Millionaire and be set for life from all the assumed child support payments that Fiddy will be making for at least the next 18 years.  Sounds too good to be true?

That’s because it is!  All you have to do is turn to Fiddy’s one and only baby momma to see that.  This cat burned down her house.  I repeat, he burned down her house!  With her still inside!  Enough said.  This song is all lies!


Kid Cudi – “I Poke Her Face”


The title is self-explanatory.  Kid Cudi actually changed the name of the song to a more radio-friendly sounding title, “Make Her Say”, for obvious reasons.  There’s nothing romantic about claiming you want to poke the face of your date in on the first night…unless your date was Karrine Steffans.


Young Money – “Every Girl”


They say honesty can go a long way.  And women dig that.  So in a way, I can kind of see why so many ladies love Lil’ Wayne.  Lil’ Wayne is one honest dude.  Probably one of the most honest dudes in America.  I mean he pretty much lays it all out in this one song of how he wants to “F*** every girl in the world” and he damn near is almost half way there.  It seems like every 2 months a new Lil Weezy is born, sometimes 2 at a time from two different women.  You gotta love someone who has dreams and goals in life.  But still, there’s nothing romantic about having your lady fighting your other ladies over quality time.  And with the numbers that Wayne’s been pulling, things could get ugly in a hurry.


R. Kelly – “You Remind Me of Something”


And the king is here!  Mr. Robert Kelly has a slew of songs that could’ve made this list such as “Down Low“, “Half on a Baby“, “Feelin on Yo Booty“, and the list goes on and on.  But I had to go with this joint right here because as smooth as an artist R. Kelly is, this line wouldn’t get him no play.  You telling a woman that she reminds you of “something” is not a good thing.  Not to mention that with Flavor Flav’s help, this woman here has forever been linked to the word “something”…unfortunately.  There’s nothing romantic about that.

Then R. Kelly took things a bit further by saying the girl reminds him of his jeep, his sounds, and his bank account.  Not the most flattering of things to be compared to.  But hey, I guess it could be worst, I guess he could’ve compared her to this.

Don’t agree with the list or want to add a few songs of your own?  Sound off below!
