The-Dream Says Split Made Him Suicidal

Posted: Tuesday – July 20, 2010

The-Dream recently opened up about his split with Christina Milian in the form of an open letter, and according to the singer/songwriter, the end of their relationship made him suicidal. He also denies that another woman is the cause for their separation and said that there were a lot of things going on behind the scenes.

“It’s easy to say that it’s because of another woman or a new relationship but truthfully, it’s not. I would never intentionally hurt a soul and everyone around me knows that,” wrote The-Dream in the letter titled In My Own Words.

“There was so much going on in me and Christina’s personal world that I tried to deal with it as delicately as I could and tried to regain my footing. Instead of being direct in order to cause even more hurt or hurt someone’s feelings, I carried the weight in secret!”

Dream also went on to say that the shame of having failed in their relationship weighed so heavy upon him that he cried many nights and was suicidal.

“Even though we were trying to overcome personal things between us, I was simply scared and embarrassed to let everyone know we were failing and have now failed,” said the LoveKing singer.

“I’ve cried about this for months, after interviews, after prayer and I’ve tried to take my own life at a point because of the failure that was looming. But I was reminded by my mother that I am not ‘Superman’ and its okay to lose sometimes.”

The two recently welcomed their daughter, Violet, into the world earlier this year in March and they apparently split soon after.

Multi-platinum Rap Artist Warren G To Release, “Regulate… G Funk Era: Part. 2”, Due This Year

Published: Wednesday – July 14, 2010

LOS ANGELES, July. 15 /2SPR/ – Multi-platinum recording artist Warren G, has announced that he will be releasing “Regulate… G Funk Era: Part. 2”, an E.P. to be made available at digital retailers later this year.

“Regulate… G Funk Era”, was the debut album from Warren G, in 1994 on Def Jam. The album went triple platinum stateside, selling over 4.5 million units worldwide, and debuted at Number 2 on the Billboard 200 after selling 176,000 in its release week. The lead single “Regulate” w/ Nate Dogg, was certified platinum, reached Number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and received a Grammy Award Nomination in 1995, for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. The album also birthed the hit singles “Do You See”, and “This D.J.”, which reached Number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, being certified gold.

It is noted that in the early 1990’s, Def Jam created “Rush Associated Labels,” a larger moniker under which Def Jam and its various auxiliary labels would operate as subsidiaries under the PolyGram umbrella. By 1992, despite recent multi-platinum selling releases from LL Cool J., Public Enemy, and EPMD, Def Jam ran into severe financial troubles and was faced with folding. Salvation came in 1994, however, when PolyGram purchased Sony’s 50% stake in Def Jam Recordings — subsequently bringing the label into their fold. Following PolyGram’s acquisition of the company, Def Jam released Warren G’s “Regulate… G Funk Era”, which went triple platinum and effectively revived the label.

With seven LP’s (his reunion disc with Snoop and Nate Dogg 213? “The Hard Way” was released in 2004 and quickly went Gold) already under his belt, Warren G is expected to release the new set sometime this year.

“Regulate… G Funk Era: Part. 2”, coming soon.

Ice Cube Talks Gang Life; “I Am The West” Album Pushed Back

Posted: Wednesday – July 14, 2010

Ice Cube, in an interview for On The Record aired last night (July 13) at 8PM, with Award-winning music journalist Toure, talks about his relation with gang life and how he managed to stay away from becoming involved in the South Central Crips or in the Inglewood Bloods.

Critics and fans have always assumed that Ice Cube was involved in gang life because of his gang-related lyrical content of songs released with N.W.A. or as a solo artist. However, he claims that he had never had anything to do with gangs.

The West Coast-based rapper asserts that his father played a big role in his life, due to him being very disciplinarian and tough.

Toure related Ice Cube’s success, both in the music and film industry, to the present paternal figure that the rapper had, saying: “We definitely know that the lack of Black fathers is a big reason why many young Black men go astray in life. Here’s a concrete example of a guy whose father kept him on the straight-and-narrow so he could rep the gangsta mentality and make money and become a wealthy individual — and not actually go into the gangs and end up the only two ways that ends up,” said Toure.

Ice Cube is currently busy with his new album, I Am The West, which has been postponed to September 24. Originally, the album was supposed to come out on July 13th, but the West Coast legend announced on his website, IceCube.com, that “I’ve been working my ass off trying to get it done for you but I ran out of time. The music is right but the paperwork isn’t and since I’m working with a few new producers the contracts are taking a little longer than usual, so I missed my turn-in date.”

Sean Kingston Accused Of Sexual Assault

Posted: Wednesday – July 14, 2010

Jamaican singer Sean Kingston is being accused of sexual assault.

An unidentified woman told police that the 20-year-old reggae fusion star assaulted her after a recent concert in Seattle.

Police report that the incident occurred at the Crown Plaza hotel Sunday night at an after party for his performance.

Law enforcement officials tell TMZ that two women joined Kingston in his hotel room toting beer and vodka.

One of the women was reportedly “very aggressive” and had sex with Kingston and then proceeded to have sex with two other men in the room after he left.

The other unidentified woman reportedly had sex with someone else in the room as well.

A hotel manager for the Plaza confirmed to TMZ that an “incident” occurred and the local fire department says that the women—ages 19 and 20, were taken to a hospital where rape tests were conducted.

The women were also reportedly tested for Rufinol, the “date rape” drug but those results are pending.

The website says police initially asked Kingston to come in for an interview but have determined that the case is not credible and no interview is necessary.

His accuser is expected to file a civil lawsuit.
