[submitted by Lady B]

5-DRE DRE ..
First he said he didn't smoke chronic when he was with NWA and then he released the album The Chronic

First he was with NWA.. then he gets kicked out and heads to New York.. He gets down with King Sun, Public Enemy and everyone else and now he's on the cover of The Source saying Westside Fo' Life!.. Cube is wack.

First he does that song about women keeping their heads up and then he turns around and rapes a woman...He also has the Ice Cube syndrome.. trying to be down with the East and now claiming the West.

What was up with that Nike commercial and using Gil Scott Heron's beat?

He talked all this shit on his album about being a hard rock and going up North. He said he's put anyone out who stepped to him...Then he gets smacked up by Redman and didn't do shit..
