Dr. Dre was involved in a dispute outside of his Malibu residence that escalated into a run-in with the law on Monday (July 25) afternoon. According to a report from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s office, deputies were called to the scene by a motorist claiming that the 51-year-old producer had pulled a gun on him. Upon the arrival of authorities, Dre was handcuffed, but a search turned up no weapon.
The incident occurred when Dre returned home but was prevented from parking due to a vehicle blocking his driveway. At his request, the stranger did move, but not without exchanging obscenities with the 51-year-old rap music legend. With the accuser allegedly continuing to mouth off, Dre reportedly pulled out his cell phone to record the taunts, at which point witnesses claim to have heard him say, “Here we go again, another black guy with a gun.”
TMZ reports that the Aftermath boss was able to record the final moments of the dispute. In the absence of a supposed fire arm, deputies did not honor the man’s demand that Dre was placed under citizen’s arrest, but he did fill out paperwork. That driver’s report is in the process of being reviewed by the D.A. to determine whether there is substantial evidence to make a case.
The death of Notorious B.I.G. has always been shrouded in mystery, with accusations of Death Row Records, gangs, the police and even Diddy being behind the murder of the Brooklyn rapper. Now, Diddy’s former bodyguard, Gene Deal, has come forward saying the mogul is responsible for the death of Biggie, and admits to being present during the 1999 nightclub shooting that involved rapper Shyne.
The bodyguard went on to say “You wanna reminisce brother? You wanna put Big and Deal on a teleprompter and tell the world how much you love them? When in fact, you did nothing to save them? To help them? Let’s reminisce on that night when we were at Andre Harrell’s house and I told you that these cats were coming to kill us or try to get at us that night. I told you I had intel, but you didn’t wanna hear it. Let’s reminisce on the fact that I told our driver Kenny ‘Run these next three lights. Run the lights Kenny.’ Kenny ran the light, Big stopped at the light, Big gets killed. Wasn’t meant for him bruh.”
The bodyguard also spoke on how Diddy allegedly had his security team rally people to testify against Shyne in court, saying “Let’s reminisce on how you had people on the security team find people to testify against Shyne. You a rat.”

Young Thug’s new Calvin Klein ad where he can be seen posing in a dress is now on display on a huge billboard on the side of a building in NYC.
The rapper shared a pic of the ad with his Instagram followers earlier this week. The ad reads “I disobey in #mycalvins,” which is the same tagline as the first ad with him. Thugger used the ad to promote his upcoming mixtape “Jeffery.” The rapper sports a black pin striped dress with pants underneath in the picture. He’s not alone in his dress wearing campaign as other famous names like Jaden Smith have also started modeling in what is considered traditional women’s clothing. He claims he does it to help the plight of transgender children.
Last Monday, VH1 brought back Hip Hop Honors to pay homage to legendary women rappers like Salt-N-Pepa, Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott, and Lil Kim. During her set, Lil Kim powered through many of her standout verses and tracks, including Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s “Get Money” where her and the Notorious B.I.G. trade classic verses. The Brooklyn rapper decided to bring out Rich Homie Quan to assist her on the song, who arrived on stage in a Coogi sweater that channeled the look of Biggie. However, once Quan began rapping it was evident that he forgot the words, as he mumbled through the legendary rapper’s verse as Lil Kim had to save his blunder.
This isn’t the first time an artist has fumbled through the lyrics of a legendary act on Hip Hop Honors, as Lupe Fiasco struggle his way through A Tribe Called Quest’s “Electric Relaxation” in 2007. Listen to the clip of Rich Homie Quan above on a segment of the breakfast club.
