at the time she was 19 and i was in my 30s and some of my female friends would judgingly ask me
what could you two possibly talk about?
little did they know that we actually talked a lot about everything all the time
possibly because she was eerily insightful, particularly about the things she obsessed about
and for that little stretch of time it was me.
i thought of her last night as i was at the so-called N.W.A reunion
so-called because Dr. Dre chose not to attend
which made it an Ice Cube MC Ren DJ Yella reunion, which is nice but come on.
with Eazy resting in peace you really need Dre there even more and without him there,
well let’s just say that even with incredible seats, i was a pouty little disappointed man.
not even three huge beers helped.
it’s not wrong to want things. or expect what is being advertised.
but of the surviving members of Niggaz Wit Attitudes,
Dr. Dre is just as important as Ice Cube
and the fact that he took what he learned as their DJ and producer
and parlayed that into a legendary solo record and incredible post- NWA producing efforts
makes his fans want him to show up with the ganstas who got him there
that much more.
his buddy snoop dogg was the opener for Ice Cube and MC Ren and Yella
yes snoop dogg, who probably would NOT be on the stage if it wasnt for Dre
snoop dogg, dre’s sidekick immediately after leaving the worlds most dangerous group
Dre’s “The Chronic” is just as much Snoop’s coming out party as it is Dre’s.
the only person missing was Eminem, and guess what, he doesn’t like to leave the house neither.
so yes i was disappointed
just hours after being hugely satisfied and thrilled about marriage equality becoming law.
it was nice to feel that feeling of satisfaction because it’s nice to know that im capable of it.
but man was it sad to be let down by and decent rap show at the basketball stadium.
the girls were pretty
and the cookie tasted good.
