This would be a show to watch. During the new Beats 1 radio show The Pharmacy, Dr. Dre suggested to listeners and his special guest Snoop Dogg, a European tour (as a U.S. citizen, I’m feeling slightly left out of the dopeness) with some heavy hitters; himself, Snoop D-O-double G, Kendrick Lamar, and Eminem.

(Photos) Check Out The Cast On Set Of The ‘Dogg Pound 4 Life’ Biopic!

Looks like these guys are wasting no time! After the success of Straight Outta Compton, it got the wheels turning on more biopics, and one of the first to be thrown into the pot was Dogg Pound 4 Life. Daz Dillinger wanted to pick up where Straight Outta Compton left off and dive deeper into the storylines of himself, Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound and more, and he has since assembled his cast to begin shooting. They do not have funding or a production home yet, however, so there is no guarantee this will make it to the silver screen. As previously reported, Dr. Dre’s son Curtis Young will be portraying his father. None of the cast of SOC will join, though they did reportedly get Cube’s blessing to go ahead with the flick. As for the rest of the cast: Daz is played by Azad Arnaud, Suge Knight is played by Reggie Noble, The Lady of Rage will reportedly play herself, Tupac played by DaDa and Kurupt played by Melvin Jackson Jr. from The Wire. Last night, the group recorded their first scene at an LA recording studio, where Suge, Tupac and Daz record “Ambitionz Az a Ridah,” and “I Ain’t Mad at Cha” in a 24-hour period.

(Video) Throwback: Eazy-E Checks DJ Yella During A Live Interview!

With all of the attention that the legendary West Coast rap group NWA has been getting as of lately due to the Straight Outta Compton biopic, even people who are not diehard fans of the group are sparking an interest to know more. I came across a super dope throwback video of the NWA boys getting interviewed by Fab 5 Freddy from Yo! MTV Raps. When he asked the group who came up with the name for the album, DJ Yella said it was all him right before he was interrupted by Eazy-E – who then proceeded to curse at Yella and make it known he was the brains behind the title. All you hear is Freddy say, “That’s kind of raw” because it got so awkward that he had no idea what else to say. LMAO, CLASSIC! This should have definitely been in the movie. Check out the throwback clip below.

Michel’le Doesn’t Accept Dr. Dre’s Apology: Calls It “PR At The Moment” To Sell The NWA Movie

Straight Outta Compton, the N.W.A. biopic, released a little of over a week and a half ago. The film pulled in more than $56 million in its first two days, but that success did not make a difference to some of the women in Dr. Dre’s past. Singer Michel’le and Dee Barnes both spoke out on film, explaining there thoughts on why Dre left their roles out of the film. The two accused the entrepreneur of being abusive, which was his reasoning for the lack of mention in movie on the historical rap group, according to the women. For his past actions, Dre made an attempt to apologize. “Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life. However, none of this is an excuse for what I did,” Dre said. “I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives.” Michel’le is not accepting the apology. “I don’t think it’s sincere,” she says.

‘Straight Outta Compton’ Will Be #1 Again This Weekend…Just Not In Compton

Straight Outta Compton exploded in the box offices last weekend, raking in an unprecedented $60.2 million and landing at number one for its debut. Looks like it wasn’t just beginner’s luck, either, as early forecasts predict they’ll easily take the number one spot again this weekend! The N.W.A. biopic is expected to bring in around $30 million in its second week, as they’ve added an additional 243 theaters in the U.S. to meet exhibitor demand. That brings the total number of theaters to 3,000 now…but zero of them are actually in the city of Compton. And no, it’s not that Compton isn’t supporting their hometown heroes…it’s simply because they don’t actually have a movie theater!
