MC Eiht opens up about celebrities and their gang affiliation during this interview with DJ Vlad. The Compton native and Crip member talks about knowing Tupac and explains how his connection with gangs led to his demise. The rapper says that Tupac began stamping himself with the Mob Piru in hopes to show loyalty, but says the star didn't have to prove anything. "It's certain things that you don't do just to want to belong." He explained that it was always Pac's choice, but nonetheless, he didn't have to pursue that lifestyle, "They shouldn't like you no better if you were a rapper or if—hey, now you got to put this rag in your back pocket." Nearly 20 years after Tupac's death, singer Chris Brown is now in a similar position for his affiliation with Bloods. The Tappahannock, VA. native was thrown into immediate stardom as a teen, and now at 26, he's a multimillionaire, with many accolades, linked to one of the biggest gangs. Although Brown is scrutinized, MC Eight says gangbanging has changed since his young days. "It's not a life and death situation. When I gangbanged it was a life and death situation. I didn't get to go to Grammy parties when I was gangbanging and even when I started rapping, I was still affiliating myself. So it was more for me being accepted going back to the block as to getting invited to some body's party."

Newt explained to us that after his sons, The Newtrons, left Jackson Records they were in the process of signing a deal with MCA, which couldn't happen unless Ron was present. However, while the deal was being made, Ron was locked up on what he said was a trumped up gun charge.

During the conversation Newt also spoke to us about rumors that he brought an oozie and a hand grenade into the MCA Records offices to get out of a contract. He explained that after leaving the offices and coming back for a second time to deal with the situation, he was met by the SWAT Team, but Ron says that he was completely unarmed. Moving along, Ron spoke with VladTV about his lawsuit against Terrence Howard, Lee Daniels, and more people involved the making of FOX's Empire, which he claims ripped off his life story.

The famed record producer also said that he would have at least fifteen exotic vehicles in his fleet, including one of the first Bugatti Veyron sports cars to ever be sold. While it seemed like Scott had it all from the outside looking in, he told us that his excessive lifestyle brought a lot of misery, and Scott said that he was doing most of it for the enjoyment of other people. During the conversation he also added that his focus started shifting away from music after he started getting wrapped up in the fast-paced Hollywood lifestyle, which you can hear more about in the above clip.

When it comes to violence in Chicago, more rappers are becoming shooting victims, and Young Chop believes it's because the gang life is a reality. "Maybe it's because we [are] more in the street s*** than most n*****. Chicago is big on gangs and s***." He told DJ Vlad, "That s*** means something to these n***** out here. I don't know why, but it just means some s*** to these n*****." He explained, for most, the gang life was not a choice, however, the need to be gang affiliated even began spreading to the suburbs. "Everybody in this motherf***** gangbanging. I don't give a f*** if you're from up north, suburbs. I get a lot of Snapchats of these preppy white kids want[ing] to gangbang. They don't know what the f*** they're throwing up, but everyone wants to gangbang." Watch the full interview above.
MC Eiht exclusively spoke to DJ Vlad about Suge Knight's successful days as a rap mogul to now facing a murder charge for a deadliy hit-and-run.

Despite seeing most people in the industry get swallowed up by their fame and fortune, he says people should remain grounded and remember their roots. Watch the full interview above.
