Bootsy Collins Shows Love to Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre

There are legends and then there is a Funk icon like Bootsy Collins. The pioneer of funk recently released his new album, The Power of One, and chopped it up with HipHopDX about creating the album and his impact on music as a whole.

During the conversation, the conversation shifted to how both he and another Funk icon in George Clinton were titans of influence in the creation of Hip-Hop classics, notable Dr. Dre’s 1992 debut The Chronic. Now Collins notes that G-Funk offspring and gives flowers to Dre and Snoop Dogg.

“I’ll tell you who I think really commanded G-funk as a source and a force of its own — Dr. Dre and Snoop with The Chronic,” Bootsy said DX. “That’s where the foundation of G-funk started. They did an excellent job of it.”

Snoop can be found on Collins new album, but work between Collins and Dre is in conversation.

“He did a few drops from me with this party we just had. We talked about it. We were cracking up about different things. He’s was supposed to do some stuff with me on this album, but the COVID thing hit and we didn’t get a chance to get to it, but it’s coming,” Collins noted.

Head over the HipHopDX to read the full conversation and also be sure to peep Bootsy’s new album on your streaming service of choice.

Dr. Dre Denies Estranged Wife’s Claim She Owns Rights To His Name

Screen Shot 2020 11 23 at 9.18.45 AM

In exclusive court documents obtained by TheBlast, Dr. Dre has filed a court motion to stop Nicole Young’s lawsuit over the trademark to his name as well as the title of his most coveted project, The Chronic.

Back in August, Nicole filed a suit claiming co-ownership of the trademarks of The Chronic and his moniker Dr. Dre, while she accused Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, of transferring the rights to the trademarks into a brand-new company in which he is the sole proprietor. 

Sources close to the couple say that since they were married in 1996 and The Chronic album dropped in 1992, it isn’t possible for her name to be on the trademarks, however, Nicole Young claims that Dre didn’t file for the trademarks until 1997. 

In the new court docs, the Dr. doesn’t pull any punches when talking about his estranged wife’s recent legal actions. His lawyer wrote, “Plaintiff Nicole Young, after commencing divorce proceedings against Defendant Andre Young, seeking over $400 Million, then stealing almost $400,000.00 from an LLC that funds Defendant Young’s recording studio, draining its entire bank account, Plaintiff has decided that $400,400,000.00 and one lawsuit are not enough. She is now suing Defendant Young and another LLC in a separate lawsuit, having the temerity to claim that trademarks to Defendant Young’s performing name, “Dr. Dre,” and to his first solo album, entitled “The Chronic,” have been unlawfully transferred from Defendant Young to his wholly-owned LLC.”

The motion filed by Dre also says, Dr. Dre” is a trade name that Defendant Young had used for over ten years before he even met Plaintiff, as a member of the World Class Wreckin’ Cru, then as a member of NWA, and then as a solo performer. “The Chronic” was a multi-platinum and Grammy-winning album that was released four years before his marriage to Plaintiff.”

Today in Hip-Hop History: Snoop Dogg Drops Debut Album ‘Doggystyle’ 27 Years Ago

tumblr pimo4weZaA1t1yehoo1 1280

On this date in 1993, Calvin Broadus Jr. aka Snoop Doggy Dogg released his highly anticipated first album Doggystyle on Death Row Records. This was the label’s first full-length project by a solo artist, which was piggybacking on the success of Death Row’s last release, The Chronic, the Dr. Dre album where many had just heard Snoop for the first time.

Doggystyle, which was produced exclusively by Snoop’s mentor, Dr. Dre, huddled around the concept of the “dogg”, with the animated cover and cartoon insert of a street-wise hound that wanted by the opps and the “bitches” for his “doggystyle”, which of course, is a famous sex position.

Some of the album’s leading tracks include the x-rated “It Ain’t No Fun (If The Homies Can’t Have None)” featuring childhood friend Nate Dogg and then recently formed Dogg Pound, Daz and Kurupt, the Slick Rick ode “Lodi Dodi” and the world-famous alcoholic anthem “Gin And Juice”.

Even with a four mic rating, Source staff writer Reginald Dennis said that the album escaped the coveted Five Mic rating because he felt like it was “rushed”, but nonetheless, with the introduction of such a monumental artist coupled with the authenticity of the gang-ridden West Coast streets, this album is by far one of the most pivotal albums of the 90s, even before the East Coast/West Coast rivalry, which came at least two years later. Salute to Snoop, Dre, the Dogg Pound, The Lady Of Rage, RBX, Suge and the rest of the legendary Death Row for putting together this classic album!

Dr. Dre’s Estranged Wife Argues His Concerns to Have Deposition Remotely Due to COVID

Dr. Dre's Estranged Wife Argues His Concerns to Have Deposition Remotely Due to COVID

Dr. Dre wants the deposition for his divorce proceedings to be done remotely due to his concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. But Nicole Young wants it done in-person and argues that her soon-to-be ex-husband hasn’t been concerned about the coronavirus.

Nicole feels an in-person deposition is necessary to prevent the possibility of him being coached, and her legal team claims they need to be able to see his reactions.

She says that the media mogul has “freely entertained” multiple people at his home and other locations. In new documents obtained by TMZ, she claims that he participated in several social functions “without implementing even the slightest amount of social distancing protocol.”

On top of that Nicole alleges Dre has been “entering and exiting the homes of multiple women around the Los Angeles area.”

Dr. Dre already received a W in the spousal support battle. The divorce has gotten ugly as Nicole battled over the validity of their prenuptial agreement. She recently questioned if he fathered any children out of wedlock.

Dr. Dre’s Estranged Wife Investigated By LAPD Over Embezzlement Allegations

Screen Shot 2020 10 13 at 3.37.31 PM

In a recent story released by TMZ, it is being reported that the LAPD has launched an investigation into allegations that Dr. Dre’s estranged wife Nicole Young embezzled close to $400,000 out of Dr. Dre’s business accounts.

Larry Chatman, Dr. Dre’s business partner, accused Young of withdrawing $353K out of one business account and later another $30K without any authorization. The police report says Nicole embezzled $385,029.

Young’s lawyers claim that she has a right to the money being that her name is on the account and allege that it’s merely a part of a bigger smear campaign against Dre’s soon-to-be-former wife.

Nicole Young could face jail time if charged with the aforementioned crime.
