West Coast emcees Planet Asia, Tristate, and Killer Ben are Durag Dynasty. “DRDC Theme” is taken from the group’s debut album “360 Waves”, produced entirely by The Alchemist. “360 Waves” drops physical and digital in stores everywhere on March 12th 2013.
Though Snoop Dogg‘s – or Snoop Lion’s – last project was a collaborative effort with Wiz Khalifa, the West Coast veteran doesn’t intend to have many features on his upcoming twelfth album, Reincarnated. ”"I really didn’t want to have too many featured people on my next couple of projects,” said Snoop in an interview with GQ. ”Because if I’m doing an interview with you and you say, ‘Hey, Snoop, you’re working on your next album. Well, who’s on it?’ That’s always the first question. Who the fuck you think is on it? Me, motherfucker!“
During the interview, Snoop headed over to a medicinal marijuana dispensary, and he discussed teaching his children about his favorite vice. “It’s not that I would ever push weed on our kids,” explained Snoop, who has three children, and is famously fond of weed. “[B]ut if they wanted to, I would love to show them how, the right way, so that way they won’t get nothing put in their shit or overdose or trying some shit that ain’t clean.” Snoop even added that he was thinking of having the discussion with the peewee football team he coaches. “Believe it or not, they need to know.”
Shyne caused a stir with last month when he called Kendrick Lamar‘s debut good kid, m.A.A.d city “trash.”Nowhere was this more controversial than on the West Coast.
Responding to claims that his West Coast pass was revoked, Shyne spoke to Streetkode.com. “First thing’s first, I’m certified worldwide. I don’t mob or thug on my block. I’m not local. I’m worldwide, wherever I go, I get the red carpet rolled out for me because I been about it. A lot of these dude’s that’s talking ain’t never did nothin’! …At the end of the day, it comes down to what you did. And what I’ve done is always be an honorable…individual. For these dudes to say they face what I faced and perform the way I performed, they can’t say that.”
“I don’t care if you have a blue rag or a red rag – that don’t make you no gangsta,” he added.
Shyne also addressed Game‘s diss, “Cough Up a Lung.” ”That’s my son. I got love for him. I always have love for him. I’m proud of him because he’s something that I helped create. …He studied me, and he aspired to be like me. …I always have love for him because he never fronted. He always paid homage to me.”
“I look at him as a little brother,” continued Shyne. “But, you know, sometimes, your little brother do things that don’t make sense.”
“If I had knew [Kendrick was cool with] Game like that, I might have not said nothin’, because I have that much love and respect for Game.”
