Cube sat down with host James Corden to recount the time where he and the rest of N.W.A weren't allowed into the listening party for their first album at a swanky Beverly Hills nightclub. "We couldn't get in, we were late because of Eazy," Cube said of late bandmate Eazy E. "He always made us late. We show up and you had to have your Easter shoes. We ended up going to iHop and fussing and complaining about it. It was terrible." #NWA#IceCube#EazyE#DrDre#MCRen#DjYella

Today I was going through my playlist and and I found this song "Legend Of The Fall Offs," so I listened to it, this is a song produced by Dr Dre from Busta Rhymes' 2006 album "The Big Bang," after listening to it I wanted to share my thoughts on this song about Busta Rhymes' as a rapper and the production from Dre. While Busta is technically proficient in all aspects of his craft, but he is one of the most criminally slept on rappers in the game. This all started in 2005 Busta began to simmer down a bit and connected with Dr. Dre with Aftermath, and out came "The Big Bang," a criminally underrated record in its own right and the last really great effort Busta has created in a full body of work. The production was mostly handled by Dr Dre and It's really a solid record, Dre's influence pervades.
From the production standpoint Dre really gave this record bangers after bangers just like how he gave 50 Cent and Game at the time. Tracks like "Get You Some," "How We Do it Over Here," and "Don't Get Carried Away;" are solid bangers. "While this song is hardly a banger in the traditional sense, Dr Dre proves why he's one of hip-hop's most cinematic producers, deftly arranging foley-esque heartbeats and shovels into the mix and that is also because Dre expirements with a lot of sounds whether it's the gunshots at the background, police sirens, whether its rain, thunder and lightening, grave digging, the sound of vehicles and the drowning. Each song that Dr Dre has produced has a sound of it's own personality of it's own and a direction of it's own. Once again, the line between hip-hop and horror are so well blendid, on this song though few would be quick to hit either Busta or Dre with the "horrorcore" label. Yet "Legend Of The Fall Offs" seems tailor made for an equally disturbing visual component. But why is such a simple beat so evocative? Is it the melodic structure, which employs repetitive use of the same few notes? For whatever reason, the sound of a piano's lowest octave seems to evoke a profound sense of hopelessness. Dr. Dre understands that better than most." #drdre#bustarhymes#aftermath#interscope
