paper 10/31/04 | Audio From "R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta)"
snoop dogg      Here are 4 tracks from the upcoming Snoop Dogg album "R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece" droppin November 23. This should help as a preview before you consider buying it, since Snoop chosed to go a completely different route for this album. I guess you could call this an R&B album since its mostly love oriented songs with a lot of singing and some rapping here and there. The production is very laid back on most of the tracks like on "Ups & Downs" or "Promise I". The Neptunes produced "Let's Get Blown" is a more uptempo track. Last but not least the track "Step Yo Game Up" featuring Daz which will have Lil Jon and Trina's vocals on the final version. The full album tracklisting can be found by scrolling down a few days. Order album here.

      Dr. Dre dropped 2 verses on this new Eminem cut called "Encore". Dre himself produced it and his delivery is pretty good, and the beat sounds just like what you'd expect from the doctor. They also added 50 Cent to the track but he doesnt really add anything to the song. Eminem mentions Dre's "Detox"album again at the end of the song so this looks pretty official now. The song is featured on Eminem's upcoming album "Encore" in stores November 16.

paper 10/03/04 | Outskertz Album Update & Audio
the outskertz      Upper Echelon Ent. recording artist The Outskertz will be releasing their debut album entitled "Anomoly" in January 2005. The Outskertz (comprised of Seefor and Burger) will begin shooting their video for the first single "B. Abowdit"
this November and will begin playing imediately before the album drops.
The Outskertz will have a pre-single out this November and have let the pre-single's B-side slip out. Westcoast2k has gotten ahold of the song "Slow Singing" featuring J Records recording artist Sly Boogy for your listening pleasure. The hook on "Slow Singing" also features the late Notorious BIG. If this is only the B-side to the pre-single, I cant imagine what the rest of the album sounds like.
After interest from major labels The Outskertz ended up signing with an independent. The Outskertz manager stated, "UEE made us an offer we just couldn't refuse. To find a label that is as excited about this project as the artist was a God send. After the last listening session we had, the person told us that they havn't had that feeling
since the first time they heard 'Thriller'.
" The expectations of this group is nothing less than Astronomical. The west coast has been waiting for something to bring them back on top and that time is almost here. The Outskertz can be contacted at outskertz@outskertz.com and check the website for free mixtape downloads and news.

Make sure you check out "Slow Singing" below:

paper 10/03/04 | Introducing Buccweet
buccweet      Here is a little introduction to Wolfpac Records' newest addition. He goes by the name of Buccweet a. k. a. Tha Animal. By age 15 he had credits that included accomplished producer and DJ to add to his resume.

Pulled from his San Fernando Valley and pushed to the forefront of the industry, Buccweet is solely responsible for the fire production on his debut album, in its entirety. That alone, puts this newcomer in an extremely prestigious class. Tha Animal credits his production to have been most influenced by Dr. Dre. "Dre’s the #1 of all time for bangin’ production. Timberland for his drum and song programming, and (DJ) Premier is one of a kind when it comes to sampling techniques." Being born and raised in "the 818", as Buccweet passionately refers to his stomping grounds as, has resulted in representin’ the city in almost every song.

When asked to briefly tell people what they can expect from his debut album "Life & Music", Buccweet is quick to respond with. "You can expect the truth. My lyrics, my beats, my hooks, all of the above, is the truth!". Look for this album to drop later this year.

Until then, he's staying busy by doing mixtape tracks. He just released a new mixtape called "Fix Ya Face Vol. 1". Its filled with new songs and freestyles. Here are couple tracks from the mixtape...."My Hood's Crazy" featuring Tha Real Cassidy & S. Bizzie; "These Streets" featuring Lil Cee & Saleam; and the last song "Who They Want". He also had a good ass song called "Get Down On It" on one of the Felli Fel mixtapes. His style kinda reminds me of Sly Boogy's, and Buccweet is definitely somebody to look out for in the future, whether as a rapper or producer. Buccweet's quotes are courtesy of Wolfpac, check www.wolfpacrecords.com for more information.
