BET Cypher: Shady 2.0 - Eminem, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Crooked I, Yelawolf, & Royce Da 5'9" (Video)
Yeah, you're going to want to press play on this one. Damn!
Just for fun.
Who are two of the hottest MC's from the West Coast right now? That's right, Evidence and Murs. So I thought it was only right to bring back this dope track from a year ago that features both of them. Remember to cop Cats & Dogs and Love & Rockets Vol. 1: The Transformation if you haven't yet!

|Why did Murs move to Arizona? "I wouldn't feel comfortable living here without owning a firearm."|
Rebecca Haithcoat of LAWeekly recently had the chance to sit down with Murs and pick his brain a bit. Below is a little preview of the interview. Click through after that to read the entire interview over at LAWeekly.
Nobody is more L.A. than Murs. But he doesn't even live here anymore.
He's now based out of Tucson, Arizona, where he says he doesn't stand out. That's for a few reasons. For one, gone are the thick ropes of dreadlocks that formerly sprouted from his head. Also, he drives a Prius. And he likes watching SEC football on Saturdays.
But he's back in his Mid-City hood today, where he's recognized even without his signature hair. Dressed in green Adidas pants and a black t-shirt, the rapper sits at a table in his mom's house on a quiet, pretty block. He's arrived only an hour ago, but he's already made the rounds to see friends and family.
His latest album, Love & Rockets Vol. 1, was released today on Damon Dash's label DD172/Bluroc. Over a take-out breakfast from his grandmother's new restaurant A Taste Of Chi Bas, Murs talks about the shooting of his two friends, why he can't live in L.A., and what it's like to be handed the keys to Dame's house.
How do you deal with the politics and choose who's gonna be on the Paid Dues bill?
I remind myself it's a compliment that people get upset [if they aren't on the bill]. I never said this was important to your career. I never said you had to be on Paid Dues to make or break you. I'm not a tough guy but I'm still an urban kid. I'll never really diss anybody, but I'll meet you at your house and ask, "Did you really say that?"
How did you decide to book Lil B?
He's a fan of mine. He used to come to my shows and give me songs: "Can we do this together?" I'd be like, what am I supposed to do with this? But I had to book him. He came up after his show and said to my wife, "Murs is a genius and you're a queen." He totally charmed her.

Kendrick Lamar & Slim The Mobster Will Be The Last Two Artists Dr. Dre Will Be Working With...For Now
In a recent interview with GlobalGrind, Dr. Dre talked about focusing his attention on Kendrick Lamar and Slim The Mobster so that their music comes out like it should. Dr. Dre also states that Kendrick Lamar and Slim The Mobster will probably be the last two artists he works with, at least for the next couple of years.
I am never going to give music up. Music is like air to me, [music] is like oxygen, so I am always doing that. As soon as I get back to Los Angeles, I am back in the studio doing my thing. I have a couple of new artists that I am excited about, Kendrick Lamar and Slim The Mobster. These are the next two artists, and these are probably my final two artists that I am going to be working with at least for the next couple of years. I am going to devote all my attention to them and make sure their sh*t comes out the way it should be. I am just having fun with life right now!
