Snoop Doggy Dogg “Poor Young Dave” (Original Version)


This afternoon, I finally found time to quickly thumb through this Chronic re-issue. I really hate the way Tha Row recycles the same classic product over and over and over again. Still, the promise of seven unreleased tracks was enough to intrigue me. Well, I shouldn’t have bothered. I especially don’t like the way they butchered the Snoop joint, “Poor Young Dave” with some cheesy-ass baseline added on top. So I dug in my digital crates, and here you go, the dusty OG version off one of my cassette tapes. Pardon the tape pop at the 1:25 mark. That’s as real as it gets. Ha!

Lloyd Explains Leaving Murder Inc.


Lloyd explains why he asked for his release from The Inc. He says that his label wasn’t returning his calls nor has he spoken to Irv in over a year. Props to Lloyd for taking his career in own hands. Sometimes if you want something done, you got it do it yourself. And if Street Love was any indication of that, he’s headed on the right path. That album was muy bueno.


Heads Up: RTD

Jay-Z Critiques Jim Jones’ “Na Na Nana Na”

From the pages of the October 2009 XXL, Jigga tells Bonsu Thompson that he’s not feeling Jimmy’s track.

Understood, but you’re one of the few rappers whose

movement is still followed by artists old and young. How conscious are

you of that position?
…Like I said, if the genre needs the game

to be stretched out, ‘cause you have those guys who are 35 years old

trying to make the smiley face or whatever, competing with Soulja Boy.

Ha! That’s a Trey Songz record with Soulja Boy on it. It’s hot. They’re clearly aiming at the young kids with that track.

not funny though. [Laughs] I mean, like Jim Jones, for example. And I

don’t mean this because we never see eye to eye. He made “Na Na Nana

Na.” [Laughs] What’s the difference between “Smiley Face” and “Na Na

Nana Na”?  “Na Na Nana Na” could’ve been called “Smiley Face” [Sings] I

got the smiley face, na na nana na na.

In the film, X says that he lost respect for Jay after he became president of Def Jam. He says he felt betrayed when Hov was on vacation sporting flip-flops instead of helping him with his project.
