G-Eazy and the Slippery Slope of Having Dead Homies | The TGR Podcast

G-Eazy wants to resurrect Bay Area Hip Hop godfather Mac Dre to perform with him. Yes. We say leave dead people alone before they have babies with technology and destroy us.

Personal-use holograms of deceased loved ones and expired historical figures coming soon, too. Quote me on that.

Back To the Future: Vintage Pop Art Takes Rappers To the 70s

image

This collection of vintage rap music advertisements was created by digital artists Ads Libitum. They took hit songs from some of your favorite artists — people like Tupac, Kanye, and 50 Cent — combined them with a twist of 70s propaganda marketing, and viola! What we have is cross-traffic visual representation of differing eras of greatness in African American history, as well as awesome conversational pieces.

Speaking of which, Ads Libitum sells these as wall art for your IRL home. Follow them on Facebook for more info. While you’re at it, follow them on Instagram and Tumblr also.

Which one is your favorite? Which others would you like to see? Sound off in the comments section…

Welcome to Death Row: The Construction and Collapse of An Empire Documented

2

2015-10-15 07.07.38

As NWA’s Straight Outta Compton movie buzz dies down, Daz Dillinger — of Tha Dogg Pound — has been kicking up dust in regards to the next installment of the NWA fairytale. That next installment is that of Death Row Records.

In what seems like a rush to cash in on nostalgic nepotism, Daz began announcing his plans to write and produce the Death Row film while Straight Outta Compton was still earning money in theaters. Well, that ship has been stopped from sailing because, according to WIDEawake Entertainment Group (who controls Death Row records’ post-Marion Knight estate), WIDEawake owns the all the music, which in essence, is the story.

But just because they own the virtual soundtrack to the story of West Coast rapdom after the expiration of Eazy-E doesn’t mean that the story stops being told.

In 2001, a documentary was produced called Welcome To Death Row which captured the recorded history of the construction and collapse of Death Row Records. This movie is supposedly the basis of what Daz Dillinger is shopping as the “Dogg Pound 4 Life” movie.

The physical film has since slightly fallen out of rotation due to the uptick of internet era, but we have it here today.

Watch Welcome To Death Row below.

UPDATE: I’ve been told that Daz isn’t shopping this movie, the SOC team is.
