T.I.’s latest trailer for the upcoming Fuck Da City Up mixtape gave us a glimpse of The Kang and Dr. Dre in-studio. While it’s unknown where the end result of their workings will end up, TIP speaks on his one-on-one experience with the legendary producer.

“Dre was here. He sent for me over to the spot. We really just turned up more than anything else. It was about creating chemistry. Of course we can get together, he got hot beats and I got dope rhymes, so we can always get together and make music. But for people to feel what we’re sayin’ and for it to sound like a party comin’ through your speakers, you gonna have to create some chemistry. So that’s what we spent more time doin’ than anything else; developing that chemistry.”

Recently, Nas spoke on the 10th anniversary of Stillmatic. Today, God’s Son reflects on the album which garnered his first platinum plaque, 1996’s It Was Written. In an interview with XXL‘s Carl Chery, he speaks on reaching the one million mark on that LP, working with Dr. Dre in the midst of the East Coast/West Coast beef, and Tupac having issues with him following “Street Dreams.”

For “Street Dreams” what was the process like to clear the Eurythmics “Sweet Dreams” sample?

Oh, they took everything. They took everything. Word. For real.

That song also partially led to ‘Pac taking issue with you ’cause he had the same track on All Eyez on Me that he released that same year. What was your reaction when you heard that ‘Pac accused you of taking the same track?

See, I was always into ‘Pac early before his controversial side blew up all over America and the world. I was already into his music. I saw him as a kindred spirit, I saw him as a brother, so it was like beefin’ with your brother. Not even beefin’, it felt like, your brother over there’s a little mad. This is an issue right now, so you gotta deal with it.

The late Heavy D’s death was surrounded with questions and mystery. However, reports have finally surfaced detailing what exactly killed the veteran rapper. According to various sources Heavy passed away from pulmonary embolism.

A pulmonary embolism is a blockage of one or more arteries in the lungs — most often caused by blood clots which travel in from other parts of he body. In Heavy’s case, the clot was formed in his legs. (via TMZ)

The coroner’s office found that Dwight Arrington Myers, better known as Heavy D, died of a blood clot in his lung. He also suffered from deep leg vein thrombosis and heart disease.
