And I am 34 big ones!!!! To some….im a young man, to others I may be a old man depends on which side of the fence you are on at the moment. There’s no party planned, so dont ask. I did one in vegas last year at the palms in las vegas, it was dope. I might do one next year for 35, to me…thats a milestone.As I get thru the day im getting emails and text messages from “friends” saying happy birthday and it feels good that they actually remembered it. I got a suprise yesterday, my girl and my son gave me a star wars millieneum falcon and a birthday cake. I might not seem excited about my birthday and you are right. Not for any bad reason in particular, I wasnt raised celebrating my birthday. I had my first birthday party at 18 or 19 I cant really remember. My parents were Jehovah’s Witnesses, so we never celebrated bithdays or holidays, accepted or exchanged gifts or said the pledge of allegence. Only until I was an adult and on my own, did I start “having” birthdays and birthday partys. You know im always reading between the lines so here is what I observed. The celebration of YOUR birthday, 9 times out of 10 ends up being a reason for YOU to get everbody else drunk…… Im a horrible person to throw a suprise party for as well, Simply because I ask to many questions and I know when people are lying, and I really pay attention to body language. Most of my friends cant hold in a fart….. let alone a secret. SO I wasnt looking to party this year. No, this year I went ocean fishing out of Long Beach for my birthday. I went alone to clear my thoughts. There were 9 old guys on the boat, we went out about 6am and came back the dock about 4pm. There was a guy with no teeth on the boat, his name was “SMILEY”… of course, and he and the rest of the guys on the boat went on and on about how much they despised each other and wanted to throw each other over the side, it was hilarious!!! Then they shared sandwiches and fig newtons they each had brought from home that morning. They were from all diffrent walks of life but on the boat, they were 1 and the same. These guys had no idea who or what I was getting up early with the “die hards” and they could care less, I was one of the guys when I bought the 1st round of Bud lights, but when I caught a 10 lb link cod I became the enemy! LOL It was .. that! I came home and had dinner with my family with the fish I had caught ( and I caught the biggest fish on the boat and WON the jackpot 50bucks….LOL ) and my son was excited because he is doing so well in school, his history teacher asked him to host the 1st 15 mins of class for him. I had a great time yesterday, it was diffrent from all my other birthdays if you had to line em all up and look at them side by side. But to me it was best. I got to see the ocean relax and clear my thoughts. I have alot of work to do right now, I am feeling like its time to get this music up out of me and get it to you guys asap. No time for BS ,that way…. when I get to where I need to be……..Then I have a REASON to celebrate.

I cant even begin to express my sadness for my dear friend at this time. Dr DRE has been a mentor a friend and a real guild thru some of the best and worst times in my carrier. When I lost my son Xavier in may it was a horrible experience for my family and I, and to have this happen to someone in the circle as well brings back all of those feelings right back. My son was alive for almost 2 weeks and passed, It hurt like hell, Andre Young Jr. was 20 years old, so Doc got to see him mature to a young man. Its not natural for a parent to bury a child at any point in time of your life, trust me. My prayers go out to the Young Family and I would like to ask all of you to do the same. Ladies and gentlemen life is extremly short, dont take a day you are alive for granted, if you have kids, love em, hug them and tell them! You never know when its going to be the last time you get to say it to them. My heart goes out to my big homie DR DRE!
ps. If you have a way to go to the aftermath web site go visit and leave any thoughts for DRE and his family. thanks.

I read what happend in ” The D” (DETROIT< for those not in the know) to this guy 'YUNG BERG'. I just was wondering if he had ever BEEN to detroit BEFORE he said what he said. I moved to california when I was 17 by myself, before that I used to live in Albuquerque NM, but before that...I was born in Detroit. I was 9 and figured out that you could be killed very quickly in Detroit. There was lots of "hood justice" on my block. People rarely called the police. So then I got to thinking who is "YUNG BERG"? I am not trying to diss the kid any more than he has done to himself, but I havent heard his music. I have only heard this story about him not liking "dark butts" ( whatever that means) and now this.
Then he spit on one of the real ones from the city, (TRICK TRICK) which really was the icing on the ass whooping in my book. It just got me to thinking. In the days of 2008 we see so many artist taking big ass “L’s” (losses) artist being beatin in public, artist going to jail, from everything to murder and rape, to artist being broke, robbed, strung out or just flat out falling off. and we all just sit around waiting for the bad news to RUSH to us thru the net or the text or just that gossip girl who knows EVERYTHING about NOTHING>THIS IS CONSIDERED BEING A FAN OF THE MUSIC??? Talent is out the window, it seems like people love train wrecks and lots of em. Maybe im getttin old, but that shit is not entertaining to me. Where do you get your fix of hip hop without the “JERRY SPRINGER” feeling attached to it? It feels like HIP HOP is now the new WWE, think about it……everybodys mad, on steroids, threatining to kick each others asses… ALL THE TIME! lots of money, its on tv, fuck him, fuck her, fuck this, fuck that etc. etc. but whos really going hard at the art form? Now dont get me wrong…SOME PEOPLE JUST DESERVE THAT SWIFT KICK IN THE TEETH, to get your point across, Trust me I KNOW. But LORD JAMAL from BRAND NUBIAN was just out here for the x games and he came to my crib to hang out, we talked about music of course and he agreed that the challenges we face in music today stem from all the bullshit ASSOCIATED with being a artist, fitting the “image”. which really sucks. I am guilty of watching TMZ and all that other shit as well, I cant front, my whole family checks it out from time to time. but to me its sad more than anything. Here is the flip side to it, from where I come from people didnt have college to look forward to and a very select few get to go to the NBA or NFL. So what we HAD was music, especially HIP HOP it was one of the only outlets that could be reached with your MIND and your DRIVE. IF we turn allow HIP HOP to be turned into a 3 ring circus, dont be mad when all you have the option to be later on……….is a CLOWN! , BE YOU, STAY FOCUSED.
Birth Date: 18 Sep 1974
Birth Place: Detroit
Birth Name: Alvin Nathaniel Joiner
A name familiar to millions across the world - a hustler in the music, film, and television world, X is a performer as likely to be seen on-stage thrilling listeners in Germany as he is on cinema screens in blockbuster franchises like xXx 2
and The X Files: I Want To Believe
. Let him tell it and he is simply "a self-made man from poverty." Throughout his career he's embodied a Do-It-Yourself mentality, resulting in the Platinum recording artist becoming a superstar with a formidable fanbase that spans the entire globe.
X began his grind to superstardom as he came to the attention of attentive Hip-Hop listenersas a member of the revered rap collective Likwit Crew. Founder and West Coast Hip-Hop veteran King Tee enlisted raucous group Tha Alkaholiks and newcomer X into the clique as original Likwit representatives. From there, the tenacious X unleashed his 1996 debut, At The Speed Of Life
. Considered by many to be an underground rap classic, it arguably made him the breakout star of the Likwit collective. The album also spawned a definitive West Coast Hip-Hop cut in the cautionary "Paparazzi." "That song still gets a crazy reception from my fans," says its creator. "It first blew up overseas, but it ended up travelling everywhere. It's a timeless record." With enlightened Hip-Hop listeners swarming to offer their approval, he swiftly followed up this release with another Hip-Hop staple. Sophomore release 40 Dayz & 40 Nights
was lauded by critics and fans alike, as its lead single "What U See Is What U Get" spent an astonishing six weeks atop the chart on BET's Rap City

PIMP MY RIDE
Mr X to the Z and the good people at West Coast Customs make people's cars go from dirt to pimped in this 30 minute show that airs weekly on MTV. Featuring Los Angeles-area aftermarket shop West Coast Customs, “MTV Pimp My Ride” selects young, automotively challenged Southern Californians and transforms their rust buckets into triumphs.
For many young adults, getting the insurance or finance to fix up their cars can be difficult and taking out a car loan is often no an option. “It’s not just about the cars anymore,” X said, but also “the boost that these kids get in their self-esteem. You can see it in their faces.” "Everybody has had a bucket in their life," said X, using L.A. slang for a clunker. He has had two of his own rides — a Hummer H2 and a Mercedes-Benz S500 — "pimped" at West Coast Customs. A typical episode begins with X paying a surprise visit to the viewer and humorously highlighting the car's numerous problem areas. Then it's off to West Coast Customs, where a team of professionals disassembles the vehicle and completely refurbishes it with custom rims and paint, plush interiors and the latest in lighting, car audio and video accessories. Wheels, Grilles, Body Kits, Customer Paint, Rims, Tires, Car Audio, Car DVD Video and Computer Systems, and many more crazy additions are transplanted into a Pimped Rides every episode!
