RIP DTTX

As a long time fan and recent acquaintance i knew that DTTX  was leading a rough life.Long time friend Bonedad put me in contact with him cause we booked him for two shows one in porterville one in Fresno  .when he arrived i see a shadow of his former self don’t let that take away from his music genius.he shared stories of Eazy-e ,2 pac,and how much he loved his family in Corcoran ca.He expressed although he missed them dearly “i cant let them see me like this” .Tyree Washington owner of Valley bay ent wasn’t sure how we were going to keep Bobby from drinking.We were unsuccessful in preventing him from getting drunk both shows one of which he was so inebriated he could barely perform.Between myself Louie mata ,and Tyree Washington we somehow  got him to perform in fresno.

LSOB was formed in 1990 by One Dope Mexican (Robert Gutierrez) and Don’t Try To Xerox (Bobby Ramirez).[1] They recorded demos and landed a record deal soon after with small independent label Pump. Their debut album, 1990’s “Brown and Proud,” brought the group their lone Top 40 single in the U.S. with “On A Sunday Afternoon,” which contained samples of The Young Rascals‘ 1967 hit “Groovin’ ” and Tommy James and the Shondells‘ 1969 hit “Crystal Blue Persuasion” and peaked at #39 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song also went to #1 for 2 weeks in New Zealand.

The duo provided songs for Latino-market movies such as Mi Vida Loca and I Like It Like That following the release of their second LP, 1992’s ‘”Hip Hop Locos,” which failed to chart. The success of “Sunday Afternoon” nonetheless resulted in Mercury Records signing the group and releasing their third disc, Layin’ in the Cut, in 1994. The record did not sell as well as was hoped, peaking at #184 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. LSOB went on a temporary hiatus,[1] returning in 1997 on indie with Danny “Dice” and Eric “Bajo” Thump Records. Their self-titled fourth album featured guest appearances from Rappin’ 4-Tay and Dwayne Wiggins of Tony! Toni! Toné!.

1999 marked the last of their releases, including a greatest hits album and a non-charting single, “Sunny Day.” That year, Gutierrez became a DJ at San Bernardino radio station KGGI and Bobby carried on touring as LSOB and working on new music. A decade later on October 18 2011 the album “It’s A Wrap” was released through Illuminated Entertainment Group. The album was produced by Playalitical and Ramirez is the only one out of the group that raps on it as sort of a one man Lighter Shade of Brown. The album’s radio single “Call Me Over” was produced by Fingazz and featured Playalitical and Zig Zag of the NB Ridaz. A music video was also filmed and released for the song. [1]

“Man, when we were first looking for a record deal about five years ago, people didn’t give a damn about Mexican rappers. It was like we had a disease or something,” says Bobby Ramirez, whose group A Lighter Shade of Brown has a big Southern California hit single in “Homies.”

At the end of the ’80s, though, Kid Frost and Mellow Man Ace spearheaded a surge in Latino rap, culminating in the emergence last year of Cypress Hill and A Lighter Shade of Brown. To Ramirez, though, Latino rap still hasn’t arrived.

“Most of the labels still haven’t gotten the message about the Latino market,” explains Ramirez, whose partner in LSOB is Robert Gutierrez. “They don’t know the market–don’t realize how big it is and how much the kids buy rap and hip-hop records.”

But Quality Records got the message, signing LSOB in 1990. The group’s first album, “Brown & Proud,” sold more than 250,000 copies that year, mostly within the Latino community. But the current album, “Hip Hop Locos,” should easily top that, spurred by the success of “Homies,” a huge local hit that’s just starting to make an impact nationally.

Rapper Pitbull To Launch Tour In Fresno

Rapper Pitbull is scheduled to launch his tour at Fresno’s Save Mart Center, according to a statement by Live Nation.

According to the statement, the rapper, whose real name is Armando Christian Perez, will kick off his “The Bad Man Tour” at Save Mart Center on July 6. Tickets for the event, according to the statement, will go on sale for the general public on Saturday.

According to the statement, Fresno is the first of six California cities the rapper will perform at, the others being Anaheim, Los Angeles, Mountain View, San Diego, and Sacramento.

Armando Christian Pérez, (born January 15, 1981) better known by his stage name Pitbull, is an American rapper. His first recorded mainstream performance was on a solo track from Lil Jon‘s 2002 album Kings of Crunk, which featured Pitbull rapping over Jon’s production. In 2004, Pitbull released his debut album titled M.I.A.M.I. (backronym for Money Is A Major Issue), under TVT Records; the album included production from high-profile producers Lil Jon and Jim Jonsin. Pitbull later released his second album El Mariel, in 2006 and his third, The Boatlift, in 2007.[4] His fourth album, Rebelution (2009), included the hit single “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)“, which was his first internationally popular song, and ultimately peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100.

Pitbull’s 2011 album Planet Pit, featured the single “Give Me Everything“, which was his first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100. The song reached number one worldwide and featured fellow artists Ne-Yo, Nayerand Afrojack. Pitbull also released “Timber” in October 2013 from his EP album Meltdown and was a global hit, reaching number one in many countries and making it to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart for a total of 20 number-one positions worldwide. The song has charted worldwide making it his second one to do so. He performed the song in different award show including the 2013 American Music Awards, in which he was the host. Pitbull has performed as a featured artist on the remixes of other hit singles. He was chosen by FIFA and Sony Music to write and record “We Are One (Ole Ola)” along with Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte, which served as the official song of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.[5]Blog-2014-Pitbull-Rapper-Wallpaper-Photos

NA NA -NAS ..FAT JOE REMEMBERS..IT LIKE DISS

Fat Joe Details Feeling Abandoned By Nas After Ending His Beef With Jay Z.

Fat Joe Details Feeling Abandoned By Nas After Ending His Beef With Jay Z

Back in 2001 when Nas and Jay Z were enthralled in their Rap beef, Fat Joe sided with Nas resulting in tension between Terror Squad and Roc-A-Fella Records. But when the Jay Z-Nas beef was squashed between the two rappers, Fat Joe says he felt abandoned.

“When Nas caught beef with Jay Z, they threw the battery in my back,” the Bronx-bred rapper says in an interview with This Is 50. “Like, ‘We got beef with this man’ and I’m all muscle. So I’m like alright. And I’m moving a certain way and the moral to the story is that there was bad blood between Roc-A-Fella and Terror Squad for a long time and the next thing I know I seen Nas with Jay Z and there was peace. But it left me in the outskirts. He didn’t pick up the phone like, ‘Yo, I’m about to squash this.’ I would’ve told him go get money. I’m all about getting money, so I would’ve told him go get money. Now me and these niggas got beef because I was reppin’ you hard.”

Four years later, Jay Z and Nas ended up uniting on stage at the Continental Airlines Center in New Jersey. The pair also performed together.

Fat Joe says that now he and Jay are good but he does feel like the situation between himself and Nas could’ve been handled differently.

“I felt abandoned,” Fat Joe continues. “Like wow. I was frontin’ nine for a nigga.”

The full Fat Joe interview with This Is 50 is as follows:
