Dr. Dre Is Part of the Group Trying to Bring 2024 Olympics to Los Angeles

By | News, Sports | No Comments

HustleTV Sports News On Thursday, LA 2024 — the organization created to bring the Olympics to Los Angeles —  announced its list of current and nominated Board of Directors. These are the people who will, in some capacity, officially represent the city in its attempt to beat Paris for the rights to host the event in 2024. Among those on the board, or nominated for it, are some big names you’d expect from the sports world: Lakers owner Jeanie Buss, Magic Johnson, Clippers owner Steven Balmer, former NBA player Jason Collins — and volleyball fan Andre Young, better known as Dr. Dre.

“The diverse group of 117 leaders and innovators are drawn from the sports, entertainment, media, technology, higher education, business, philanthropic and public sectors in California and around the world, helping LA 2024 develop a Games plan that will serve the Olympic Movement in 2024 and beyond,” the organization said in a statement, per NBC News.

Dre and opera singer Placido Domingo are the only musicians on the 117-person list, though music industry vets David Geffen and Lucian Grainge will also be involved. HustleTV

The rapper and his colleagues have five months to make their case for hosting the games in Los Angeles; the International Olympics Committee will vote on the matter September 13 in Lima, Peru. HustleTV

SURVIVING COMPTON: DRE, SUGE & MICHEL’LE Trailer (2016) Lifetime Movie

By | Movie Trailers, News | No Comments

HustleTV Music News….   In October, Lifetime will premiere Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Me, a TV movie that focuses on the abusive relationship between Dr. Dre and R&B singer Michel’le. A sneak peek of the film—which is told from Michel’le’s perspective—debuted at the end of August, but Lifetime just dropped a one-minute trailer for the project.

The footage follows Michel’le (Rhyon Nicole Brown) through her first session with Dr. Dre (Curtis Hamilton), her entanglements with the infamously felonious Death Row, and the abuse she suffered from the superproducer—at one point, he’s shown choking her in front of collaborators. HustleTV

Surviving Compton was indirectly birthed by the controversy surrounding last year’s Straight Outta Compton, which ignored Dre’s abusive behavior. Dee Barnes—the journalist Dre notoriously assaulted at a party in 1991—and Michel’le both publicly spoke out against the N.W.A member and the film. “I was just a quiet girlfriend who got beat on and told to sit down and shut up,” Michel’le HustleTV

Dr. Dre And 50 Cent Are Being Sued For Allegedly Ripping Off A Producer

By | News | No Comments

Dr. Dre and 50 Cent are facing a lawsuit for their alleged uncredited use of a producer’s beat for the song “P.I.M.P.” from 50 Cent’s 2003 album “Get Rich Or Die Tryin’.”

The producer, Brandon Parrot, claims he sent 10 instrumental tracks to Dr. Dre’s label Aftermath Entertainment in 2001 — including one called “BAMBA,” which Parrot claims was incorporated in 2003’s “P.I.M.P.” without his knowledge, according to a TMZ report.

Denaun Porter, who is listed as the sole producer of “P.I.M.P.” in the album’s credits, allegedly told Parrot that his track “BAMBA” was used in the song by mistake, and Parrot subsequently signed a settlement in 2003 based on Porter’s story.

Now, Parrot is claiming that 50 Cent and Aftermath “took advantage of him” in their settlement, and he is currently seeking compensation for their alleged use of his music, according to TMZ. HustleTV

Dr. Dre earned $620 million last year, but this year Diddy, Jay Z, and Drake all surpassed him

By | Featured | No Comments

Forbes’ Hip-Hop Cash Kings roundup is here. The annual list ranks hip-hop stars by earnings in a one-year period, and this year there are quite a few surprises. HustleTV

Last year, Dr. Dre made the most money in hip-hop after Apple purchased his company, Beats Electronics, for $3 billion. A year later, Dre has slid into fourth place behind Diddy, Jay Z, and Drake.

According to Forbes, after coming off the big $620 million personal payday from Apple, Dre has seen his checks shrink a bit, essentially reducing his cash flow. Dre is still massively rich, regardless. HustleTV

In addition to his work with Apple, Dre served as an executive producer on the N.W.A. biopic “Straight Outta Compton” (which has netted about $160 million in the US to date) and released an album that coincided with the film. Those numbers, however, weren’t factored into the current rankings.

With Dre’s fall, Diddy moved into the first spot, even though he rarely performs or makes music anymore. He’s all about business, and it’s paying off. HustleTV

Jay Z — to the surprise of no one — moved up a spot as well, to No. 2. The rap mogul simply knows how to make money. Leading the charge for Jay is his Roc Nation music label. Roc Nation also has a sports division that contributes to Jay Z’s earnings. Though Jay Z’s newest business — the music-streaming service Tidal — has been hammered by rumors of an imminent demise, it has remained afloat thus far. HustleTV

The biggest surprise perhaps was rapper Drake coming in at No. 3, the highest ranking he has achieved in his young career. Drake was fourth last year, but after selling over a million copies of his “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” album released in February, the “Trophies” rapper moved into the upper echelon.

Dr. Dre, Apple both say he’s sorry for his abusive past

By | Featured | No Comments

Dr. Dre has directly apologized for numerous incidents of assault that he committed against women during his time with his influential rap group N.W.A. Speaking to The New York Times, Dre addressed—albeit not by name—his violent attacks against journalist Dee Barnes, his one-time romantic partner Michel’le, and rapper Tairrie B—saying: DJ Hustle

“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. I’ve been married for 19 years and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again. I apologize to the women I’ve hurt. I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives.” Hustle TV

Dre has discussed the various allegations against him before, most recently in a Rolling Stone cover story promoting Straight Outta Compton, the N.W.A. biopic whose release (and omission of the assaults) lead to renewed media interest in the attacks. In the Rolling Stone article, Dre said, “I made some fucking horrible mistakes in my life,” reiterating that he’s a very different man from the one who dismissed the assault on Barnes in 1991 by saying, “It ain’t no big thing–I just threw her through a door.” The New York Times piece is the first time he’s publicly and directly apologized to his victims for the attacks.

Interestingly, Dre’s business partner, Apple, also weighed in on the discussion, with the company issuing a press release saying, “Dre has apologized for the mistakes he’s made in the past and he’s said that he’s not the same person that he was 25 years ago. We believe his sincerity and, after working with him for a year and a half, we have every reason to believe that he has changed.” Now that the iPod manufacturer has weighed in positively on the Compton producer and headphone mogul’s public redemption, it’s presumably only a matter of time before Barnes and his other victims follow suit.

Dr. Dre’s ‘Compton’: 5 Things We Learned

By | Featured | No Comments

Dr. Dre’s first new album in 16 years, Compton, is now available for preview streaming on Apple Music. (Listen here.) The set will go on sale at midnight for purchase.

The set usurps Dre’s long-anticipated album Detox, acting as a companion to the new N.W.A movie Straight Outta Compton, and there is a load of nostalgia on the project, as Dre reflects on his life so far. But it is also very current, from the dense production to featured artists.

Dr. Dre to Donate All Proceeds From New Album to Compton Charity

On early review, several things became apparent from this new piece of work. Here are five things we learned from Dr. Dre’s Compton:

1. People are loving it. Twitter is blowing up with positive reviews, which critics are echoing. Rolling Stone, for instance, gave it a four-star review and called it “confounding and enthralling” and “something realer, and better” than the mythological Detox.

2. It’s all about the features. It’s no major surprise that Dre has at least one feature (and often several) on nearly every track on Compton. His last two records, 2001 and The Chronic, were similarly stacked. After all, he’s a producer first and foremost. But just who he’s recruited says a lot about his career and current hip-hop. There are familiar names from those past releases such as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Ice Cube and even Xzibit, but a new class of stars like Kendrick Lamar and Marsha Ambrosius are more present and make a bigger impact, almost replacing that old guard.

3. There are a half-dozen newcomers you’ve probably never heard of. King Mez, Anderson. Paak, Justus, Jon Connor, Candice Pillay and Asia Bryant are all up-and-coming talents who are sure to see a nice boost from their features on this album. And it’s no one-and-done trick for most of them, as the majority are included on several tracks.

4. Kendrick Lamar might be taking a jab at Drake on the track “Darkside/Gone.” At least that’s what Twitter seems to think, thanks to this line: “But I still got enemies giving me energy/ I don’t want to fight now/ Subliminals sending me all of this hate/ I thought I was holding the mic down.” Some are interpreting that line to reference Drake’s track “Energy” from If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, though it should be noted that earlier in the song Dre too references negative “energy.”

5. Dre’s relationship with women is not what you might call “progressive.” On the Ice Cube-featuring “Issues” there is a violent skit at the end in which a woman is murdered without reason, dragged into the woods and buried. And then there’s this revolting line from Eminem on “Medicine Man”: “I even make the bitches I rape cum.”
