So the good doctor has finally emerged from his lab to bless us with some of that good West Coast remedy, the medicine we’ve been waiting on for over a decade! The album entitled Compton released a day early on Apple Music and early reviews are pretty positive. Dre came with some true blue heavy hitters like Snoop, Ice Cube, Xzibit and Eminem, but there are also some surprise additions like Kendrick Lamar and Marsha Ambrosius. Rounding out this long anticipated release are independent rapper King Mez and up and comers Asia Bryant, Paak, Jon Connor and Paaz to name a few.
The album is the accompanying soundtrack to the Straight Out of Compton movie slated to be released the second week in August. Although Dre fans had been waiting for over 16 years for him to drop the Detox album, (which never came out due to Dre’s dislike of it) hopefully this Compton album will make up for the delay. Dr. Dre has expressed that this album is really important to him and that he was inspired by the filming of N.W.A’s story to make this album. West Coast fans and fans all over the world once again have bonafide West Coast hip-hop back in rotation and time will tell if Dre’s magic touch stands the test of time. This collaborative effort along with the upcoming movie will put L.A. back in the spotlight with the album royalties earned by Dre being donated to help fund a new performing arts center in the city of Compton.
Now that the music is out, it should be quite interesting to see how audiences respond to the N.W.A. film, I know I’ll be watching!

Well here we are again with another Summer winding down. It has been a whirlwind of events, altercations, marriages and breakups. We won’t go into a full recap as that would take several days to cover. However, there were definitely a few stand out things that transpired over the last few months. As most know, the On The Run Tour was a huge success and will be coming to a close with performances in Paris that will be filmed for HBO. Bey was also bestowed with the Michael Jackson Vanguard award via MTV and she put on a stellar performance, at the end of which her husband and sweet little daughter Blue Ivy presented her the prize. So cute! Jay and Bey found themselves battling rumors of an imminent split, but it seems for the most part that those rumors have been shot down…for now. Of course we wish them the best and hope for many more awesome years for these two mega stars. (On a side note, BET and Karrueche Tran Really tried it when they aired a tasteless joke about Blue’s hair…Needless to say the Beyhive went all the way IN and tore her and BET a new one!) Aside from that, it also happens to be Queen Bey’s 33rd birthday today so shout out to her on her special day as she sails around Corsica in a yacht with her family.
On another note, today is a sad day for Hollywood as the loss of Joan Rivers is being mourned by many. Joan passed away today leaving behind her only daughter Melissa Rivers and an amazing legacy that spanned over six decades. Her sharp tongue and acid critiques may not be missed by those who have been stung, but her raunchy and no holds barred sense of humor will be a noticeable absence from entertainment. We extend our sincere condolences to the Rivers family at this sad time.
Several stars have gotten pregnant, given birth, gotten engaged, married and divorced! Just this past weekend three high profile couples tied the knot. This trio of wedded bliss included Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg, Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross and Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade. A big congrats to them all, but none of these weddings were more of a wow moment than the recent nuptials of the Jolie-Pitts! Last but not least, Ciara broke it off with baby Future’s dad, but we are hearing that they have since reconciled (so has Chris Brown And K-kat allegedly…but that’s a whole other bag of marbles) hopefully her and Future Sr. will be able to work thru their relationship issues for the kids sake. And we want to wish a safe birthing to Alicia Keys and Kelly Rowland on their impending deliveries. Check back next week for more newsy info on some of our faves and also on some of our “love to hate’s” as well. See ya’ll round the golden water cooler!
