Dre Day Tragidy

My boy K-Rocks writes:

This past weekend Andre Young Jr., the son of rap legend Dr. Dre was found in his Woodland Hills home at the age of 20. The tragedy struck at the worst possible time, with the Dr. working on his latest and final album, "Detox." It's every parents worst nightmare to out live their children, but especially for someone like Dre, one man who is responsible for so many successful hip hop artists. He helped out the careers of rap stars like Eminem, The Game, and 50 Cent (unfortunately). He says it best himself:

"Who you think taught you to smoke trees?
Who you think brought you the oldies?
Eazy-E's, Ice Cube's, and D.O.C's
The Snoop D-O-double-G's
and the group that said mother-"Fuck Tha Police"
Gave you tape full of dope beats
to bump when you stroll through in your hood
And when your album sales wasn't doin too good
who's the Doctor they told you to go see?"

The only group to have such an impact on today's hip-hop, in my opinion, would be the Wu-Tang Clan, but Dre is only one man, and has done more in his career than most rappers could even hope. He has established his movie career with rolls in "The Wash" and "Training Day." I believe he has put together one of the most impressive resume in hip hop history.

I'll leave you with a few hits.
Dr. Dre ft. Snoop Dogg-Deep Cover
Dr. Dre ft. Snoop Dogg-Still D.R.E.
Dr. Dre-It's Like That [Supposed first single off Detox]
N.W.A.-Fuck Tha Police
N.W.A.-Express Yourself
Crooked I-
Say Dre

Other tracks worth coppin':
Dr. Dre-Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang
Dr. Dre-California Love
Dr. Dre-Zoom
Dr. Dre-Forgot About Dre
Dr. Dre-The Next Episode
Dr. Dre-Bad Intentions
N.W.A-Straight Outta Compton
N.W.A-Dope Man
N.W.A.-Boyz-N-the Hood

Props to my man, Orlando Magic.

Can't Even Trip Because I'm Laughin' At Ya

There are two reasons I came up with that would explain why you wouldn't find the following video as funny.
1. You don't know enough about about the Carters to understand their depictions in the video.
2. You are one of the millions of people who believe Lil' Wayne is "the best rapper alive."

For anyone that tried to see this video earlier and it didn't work, I re-uped the video for ya.

This video is from the same humorous brothas that brought you this masterpiece a while back.
