It’s not every day you get to hear Beanie Sigel and Jadakiss on a record, much less a on a track from an up and coming rapper. Ohio’s own L-Dro has managed the unthinkable, getting the Broad Street Bully and J To The on “The Life We Live.” The song sounds like something the two would actually hop on and Beans is getting his voice back, as you can hear from his verse.

The upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton has been growing in buzz all year. But before its release on August 14, we may get a taste of the real thing that we haven’t seen in more than two decades. For the first time since 1989, all surviving members of N.W.A. including Ice Cube, DJ Yella, MC Ren, and even maybe Dr. Dre will take the stage to perform in concert. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Cube expanded on the upcoming L.A. show at BET Experience on June 27: The last time I performed with Yella was 1989. That was a long time, but with Ren, it was the Up in Smoke Tour [in 2000]. It was real cool to be onstage with him again, but that’s still been 15 years ago. So it’s real cool to get up there and with the excitement around Straight Outta Compton, the movie. I think people are going to just be extra excited to get a glimpse of us. Playing coy on Dre’s appearance, Cube wouldn’t commit to him showing, but seeing how he’s been instrumental to the film being made and they’ve promoted it together, it would be absurd if he didn’t show. But even in the highly unlikely event that he doesn’t, other West Coast kings like Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, and Schoolboy Q will also be on hand. Make sure to keep your fingers crossed for an Eazy-E hologram.

The surprise trend continues tonight as Kevin Gates decides to join in on the fun and release a brand new mixtape titled Murder For Hire. Hosted by DJ Holiday, the 7-track project contains only a lone feature from OG Boobie Black, who appears on the previously heard record “Her”. Serving as the follow up to last year’s Luca Brasi 2 mixtape, Murder For Hire is shaping up to be another strong body of work from the Baton Rouge rapper. Download here at GRM
