New York, NY – Lil Kim recently stopped by Beats 1 Radio to chop it up with host Ebro Darden. During their conversation, they discussed her latest album 9, which arrived earlier this month — 14 years after 2005’s The Naked Truth.
Toward the end the interview, Kim reaffirms 9 is actually the first two parts. Missy Elliott, Remy Ma and Fabolous are a few the guests expected on the second installment. However, she didn’t divulge when exactly the album would arrive.
“It’s some interesting records on part two,” she says. “Me and Missy with Paris Hilton. I got Remy. It’s super hard though. Remy flamed that record.
Elsewhere in the interview, Kim opens up about The Notorious B.I.G. and talks about how he chose the now salacious poster image for 1996’s Hard Core.
“Biggie was always at all my photoshoots, like he picked the Hard Core poster,” she explains. “I naturally did the pose, but I did a bunch poses and he was like, ‘That’s the one.’
“The record company was like, ‘Are you sure about this?’ He was like, ‘Hell yeah, put that bitch on a poster. Stop playing.’ I’m not even joking. He was just my guy for everything. Not that I didn’t know him, but I was just scared to make a move because I didn’t want to make the wrong move, so he did everything.”

Cleveland, OH – Japanese rapper Ryo Muranaka reportedly sold everything he owned to travel 6,000 miles from his home in Japan to Cleveland’s east side in hopes meeting Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. According to Fox8 Cleveland, the iconic Hip Hop artists are Muranaka’s “heroes.”
But once he arrived in Cleveland, he wasn’t met with the welcome he’d wanted. In fact, local activists James Norton and Kwas Bibbs found him alone, broke and robbed his luggage.
With the help an interpreter app, Muranaka told the news outlet he thought all he would need to get into the United States was his album. He admitted he had no idea how he’d get back to Japan.
“I thought I could get in the US in exchange for my CD,” Muranaka said. “No. No plan. One-way ticket.”
Now, Muranaka’s temporary permission to be in the U.S. has expired. However, the fices U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown and Rep. Marcia Fudge said they were attempting to find a solution.
Norton and Bibbs said Muranaka was able to meet Layzie Bone who was kind enough to briefly put him up in a hotel.
Krayzie Bone heard about Muranaka’s predicament and initially thought he was one their superfans who consistently roll through the area Bone Thugs got their start. He soon realized Muranaka was different. But, he points out there’s a lesson to be learned.
“My initial reaction was I didn’t think too much it because we’ve had so many fans throughout our careers come from around the world to 99th St. Clair either looking for us or trying to take photos,” Krayzie told HipHopDX. “I thought it was just another fan, but when I heard this dude sold all his belongings to come to Cleveland I was like, ‘WTH?’
“I commend him for his determination and passion for what he’s trying to do because I can relate. I’m quite sure he heard our story and how we pursued Eazy-E and this is what inspired him.”
Krayzie continued, “But I will also say this to other fans and artist that are looking to do the same thing as us or this gentleman did — follow your dreams by all means, but you have to be very careful when you go to places you know nothing about.
“We’re not from the suburbs, we’re from the ghetto. The area we grew up in is not nice by any means, and I’m just thankful all they took from him was his luggage and not his life because it gets real like that. So, be very careful and have some kind plan.”
The title Bone Thugs’ seminal album, E. 1999 Eternal, was a nod to Cleveland’s eastside neighborhood centering on East 99th Street and St. Clair Avenue.

Quavo’s “clone” isn’t the only person to have a striking resemblance to the Migos member though.
Fans have ten pointed out the similarities between him and Cash Money Records singer Jacquees on social media.

Beyond finding doppelgangers at shows, Quavo is staying busy with his new gig on an animated TV show. In August, the Quality Control Music artist announced he’s executive producing a kids’ series about Atlanta’s Hip Hop scene.
“I have long seen how Hip Hop as well as our music really impacts kids,” Quavo said in a press release. “I’ve loved animation my whole life, whether on TV or in movies, and I wanted my first jump into this premium content world to be a show just for kids. It will definitely reflect the creativity, love and families in and around the nawf side Atlanta, where we grew up.”
Los Angeles, CA – The rhythmic ballad “Regulate” features Long Beach-bred rappers and lifelong friends Warren G and Nate Dogg exchanging four-bar samples about a near-fatal night in their hometown.
Now 25 years old, the ballad is still one the biggest breakout rap songs all time and largely responsible for putting both artists — and the genre they’d up defining in G-Funk — ficially on the map.
The Grammy-nominated hit single was ficially released in 1994 as part Warren G’s debut album Regulate…G Funk Era and the film soundtrack for Above the Rim starring Tupac Shakur. The “Regulate” music video was also a mainstay on the MTV and VH1 circuit during a time which rap wasn’t getting too much play on TV.
Warren G sat down with HipHopDX during a recent performance in Inglewood, California to talk about his famous song, his upcoming album and his star cornerback son who plays at USC.
HipHopDX: You’re now 48 years old. How has “Regulate” defined you as an artist 25 years later?
Warren G: Younger kids from a new generation that got turned on to “Regulate” still come up to me and want it, till this day. I swear to God. I’m like wow. On the international level, “Regulate” is the one where they say ‘now you changed some shit.’ When they think about west coast rap, they think about the song “This D.J.” During sets, “Regulate” is a build up to the grand finale, and it’s the biggest one. I set it up with a tribute to Nate Dogg and G-Funk because he’s not with us. I give him that love on my show. He was my dog. He was my best friend.
HipHopDX: Where would you rank “Regulate” among rap’s all-time best hits?
Warren G: I give it the top five because it was one the biggest Hip Hop singles ever. That’s a fact. I can’t say what number, but it’s in the top five. For it to be playing 25 years strong and still going, that means something and lets the world know that G-Funk is here to stay, and Warren G is here to stay. We’re going to keep doing that shit. We’re not gonna stop.
HipHopDX: How do you reintroduce yourself in 2019?
Warren G: I’m The Regulator. I’m G-Funk. I’m Warren. I wouldn’t want to change anything. I’m still relevant to the new era. I’m just not rapping like the new era, but I’m right there with them musically.
HipHopDX: Aside from touring with Snoop Dogg, what else are you currently working on?
Warren G: I have a record I can drop right now with Ty Dolla $ign. It’s called “And You Know That.” It’s vicious.
HipHopDX: What do you like listening to these days?
Warren G: I fuck with everybody. I listen to all it.
HipHopDX: What are your thoughts on this era rap music?
Warren G: There are some solid artists Lil Baby, J. Cole, Drake and Joey Bada$$, but then you have others who are just saying some bullshit. You have to look at the current way these kids are living and what they’re going through. We can’t just sit back and say, ‘what they’re going through is bullshit.` It’s what’s going on. Just like what we talked about back in the day was what was going on with the gangbangin’ and barbeques. They’re still doing it, but they’re doing it in their own way. What needs to happen is that a lot shit needs to change.
HipHopDX: How do you keep in touch with your contemporaries in Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg?
Warren G: Our relationships are solid. We’re still active and making business moves. Whenever we do get time to chill, we do. Everyone is doing their thing. It’s never too old or too late to still do the records that are just as big now as it was back then.
HipHopDX: You are a West Coast legend, but where do you prefer to perform?
Warren G: I’m international. I like to perform everywhere. We’ve been in the midwest lately as well as Canada. Everywhere we go is incredible and sold out. The love is really real. We were in Detroit recently by the water and there were thunderstorms with lighting. The backstage was even flooded. But people were on jet skis and everything. I told them, ‘this is the most fun I’ve ever had at a show.’ It was love, and you can just feel the vibe so much. I was the second act, so I was like ‘fuck this shit.’ They’re going to make me go second? Alright. I’m going to tear this motherfucker up. Whoever else came after me, they had to really do their thing because I tore a whole through their ass.
HipHopDX: What has it been like to see your son Olaijah Griffin develop into a five-star recruit and current cornerback for USC?
Warren G: That’s my guy. As a dad, I can’t even begin to explain how cool it is. At first, my other son Warren was better. Olaijah was a water boy in Pop Warner and couldn’t really play. And then he started practicing and was running faster than everybody. He finally got his chance, and when they gave him the ball as a running back that first time, he ran the ball 65 yards for a touchdown and did a frontflip. When I saw that, I thought to myself, ‘he is different.’ Just to support my boys from Pop Warner till now was one the best things in the world for a dad. It kept them out the streets and other bullshit. Oh my god, the whole journey has been incredible.
