It is a “diss song” to formerN.W.A. bandmate Dr. Dre and his new protégé Snoop Doggy Dogg. It is also one of the few songs that Eazy-E ever produced in the studio. It peaked number #1 for 11 weeks on hot rap tracks.
Want a sneak peak at what Weezy’s life is like on the road?? Well want no more. Tunechi will be putting together a documentary of his goings-on during the I Am Still Music tour that took place from March of this year through the end of this week.

Hit the jump to see what he told MTV’s Sway about it backstage in New Orleans.
It’s been six years since Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans has still not fully recovered. Rapper and actor Ludacris along with DoSomething.org and Epic Book Drive to restock schools and libraries with much needed books. Watch his PSA.
Oh boy!! Drama, drama, drama. Looks like the newest couple on the block is Diamond (of Crime Mob) and Soulja Boy. Interesting. Very interesting actually LOL. If you didn’t know, Diamond had a long time relationship with Lil Scrappy. I THINK they have a kid together but I’m not sure. I want to know when this break up happened because I could have sworn they were JUST together. I guess that’s how it goes, though. The new couple looks quite happy…but momma Scrappy isn’t exactly feeling the situation. Actually, she feels that Diamond is a “dirty low down b*tch”….yikes!
