Hip-Hop Week in Review (June 7th-13th)
Chris Brown riding with Suge Knight and Tupac the night of his murder.
The iconic picture of Suge Knight driving Tupac the night he was murdered was photoshopped by Chris Brown this week. The picture was taken in Las Vegas on September 7th 1996. It was snapped just hours before Tupac was shot multiple times while riding shotgun in Knights black 1996 BMW 750oiL sedan. Chris Brown photoshopped himself into the back seat and posted it on Instagram this week but later deleted the tweet.
MC Ren was left out of Straight Outta Compton trailer by Universal Studios and he was pissed!
Mc Ren sent out a number of Tweets this week saying “Fuck these bitches at Universal Pictures” & “The work I put into them records. It’s disrespectful to me, my family and most of all my fans”. He also tweeted “When you have bitches work on a film that don’t know shit about hip hop this is what happens.” Check out the trailer which does blatantly leave out him and other original member DJ Yella. Both Dr. Dre and Ice Cube are listed as directors on the film which is set to debut in theaters on August 14th. MC Ren is scheduled to unite with Ice Cube and DJ Yella at the BET Experience June 27th.
