Snoop Dogg confirms Jay-Z wrote Dr Dre’s ‘Still D.R.E.’ in full

Snoop Dogg has revealed that Jay-Z wrote Dr. Dre‘s classic single ‘Still D.R.E.’ in full.

The track, which also features Snoop, was a standout song on Dre’s ‘2001’ album. Jay-Z is credited with writing the track under his real name Shawn Carter along with Scott Storch.

But Snoop now claims that Jay was flown into Dre’s LA studio, and that the ’99 Problems’ rapper wrote the song in its entirety in 30 minutes.

“He wrote Dre’s shit and my shit and it was flawless,” he told The Breakfast Club. “It was ‘Still D.R.E.’ and it was Jay-Z and he wrote the whole fucking song.”

Snoop added: “Jay-Z is a great writer to begin with for himself, so imagine him striking it for someone he truly loves and appreciates. He loves Dr. Dre and that’s what his pen showed you, that I can’t write for you if I don’t love you.”

He also revealed in the same interview that Eminem didn’t make the cut in his list of the top 10 rappers of all time.

“Eminem! ‘The Great White Hope’. White rappers had zero respect in rap. Let’s keep that one thou-wow,” Snoop said. “[Dre] has probably put Eminem in the position where he would be considered one of the top 10 rappers ever.

“I don’t think so, but the game feels like that he’s top 10 lyricists and all that that comes with it. That’s just because he’s with Dr. Dre. and Dr. Dre helped him find the best Eminem that he could find.”

Asked why Eminem doesn’t make his top 10 list, Snoop went on to list a number of rappers who he rates higher than the Detroit artist.

“There’s some n****s in the 80s that [Eminem] can’t fuck with,” Snoop continued. “Like Rakim, like Big Daddy Kane, like KRS-One, like LL Cool J … Like Ice Cube.”

He said “it is what it is”, but maintained that Eminem “did that to the fullest” and is still “one of my teammates, one of my brothers”.

“But when you’re talking about this hip-hop shit that I can’t live without, I can live without that.”

Jay-Z Rumored To Have Signed Tekashi 6ix9ine To Roc Nation

It was one of the biggest moments in hip-hop this year and, whether you view his return as a positive or a negative thing, Tekashi 6ix9ine officially came back last week. Releasing his return single and video for “GOOBA,” the Brooklyn star hopped on Instagram Live and explained why he snitched, apologizing to all of his fans and taunting some of his fellow rappers, including Meek Mill. Unfortunately for Meek, it looks like there are signs that the two may need to play nice in the future because 69 might have a possible Roc Nation connection.

In the “GOOBA” music video, which now has over 93 million views, eagle-eyed fans noticed a Roc Nation logo on a baseball cap, which was only present for a split moment in the corner. The black and white paper airplane logo could be seen on an unidentified assistant in the video. While this does not confirm a connection between Jay-Z and Tekashi 6ix9ine, many are surprised to see Roc Nation being subtly represented and they have suggested that 6ix9ine possibly signed a management deal with the label.

Nothing has been confirmed as of yet. In fact, this may just have been blown out of proportion. The dude could be rocking a replica version of the hat, or has worked with Roc Nation in the past. Who knows?

We have reached out to Roc Nation for comment on this story.

Jay-Z Arrested For The Murder of Rapper Big L Back in 1999

NEW YORK CITY – Authorities have confirmed that New York rapper and entrepreneur Jay-Z has been arrested after it was revealed that he, in fact, was behind the murder of fellow rapper Lamont “Big L” Coleman back in 1999.

It’s been 15 years since Big L was shot and killed at 45 West 139th Street in his native Harlem on February 15, 1999. He was shot 9 times in the face and chest. Prior to Big L’s murder, Jay-Z and Big L were good friends and worked together to make music. Both Jay-Z and Big L recorded one of the most famous rap freestyles titled “7 Minute Freestyle”. Big L was expected to be signed to Jay-Z’s Rockafeller records before Big L was murdered.

The killer, an alleged childhood friend of Big L, was blamed for the murder. However, new evidence acquired by New York Police, shows that Jay-Z was the mastermind behind Big L’s murder. It is not known if Jay-Z killed Big L himself or if he hired someone else to carry our the murder. Jay-Z was arrested earlier today and is currently being interrogated by police. Authorities are currently trying to find the motives for the murder and how long it was being planned, if so. Authorities say they have sufficient evidence to put Jay-Z behind bars. Jay-Z can face up to 40 years for the murder.

Over the years, Big L has become one of the most popular underground hip-hop artists, known for his dark rhymes and creative punch lines, and is often considered to be one of the best rappers of all time. Big L was known for being a member of the underground New York hip-hop group named ‘Diggin’ In The Crates Crew’ (D.I.T.C.) and frequently working with rappers such as Lord Finesse and Fat Joe.

Kaepernick’s actions kick-started a wave of protests by predominantly African-American football players, but he was controversially dropped from the team and not drafted again, despite being well-regarded as a player. Jay-Z and Beyoncé have both expressed support for Kaepernick in the past.
