Dr. Dre Split Addressed By Hittman In Guest Verse

Former Aftermath Entertainment artist and 2001 collaborator Hittman chose to address his relationship with Dr. Dre and their fallout in music form by addressing the matter on a guest verse featured on rapper/songwriter Asoka’s record, “The Humble Hustle.”

On his verse, Hittman speaks on going from having “an illustrious career” to raising funds for a project of his through Kickstarter.

On “The Humble Hustle,” Hittman raps:

“Spitting for Andre til he said ‘Stop, that’s all I gotta hear’ / Then and right there, dreamed of ballin' and gear / All-in-all an illustrious career / Well, I thought wrong. Thought I was on. Got hella gonged / Now I’m on Kickstarter pledging like a telethon for project funding /Sometimes stepping stones are really blocks for stumbling / Opting out my contract, was it a smart or dumb thing / The block is mumbling / My hustle’s not a fun thing. It’s stressful and humbling, for real.”

Hittman's album was done & they officially announced it was coming so it was all fucked up it didn't drop on Aftermath in 2000.
Jimmy was the one who stopped it though 'cuz Em was getting all the praise in the world at the time while some medias on the West Coast labeled Hit boring so Interscope didn't wanna risk it.

I know man... That was fucked up.
His album got stopped after it was handed to Interscope... It was done, done.
They were about to release his first single on the radio too but backed off at the very last second 'cuz apparently Hit was going at Suge on it.
Dre added a Hit verse on Forgot About Dre when they released it as a video single instead but that didn't help much either.

It makes sense to some degree 'cuz Interscope had major artists who were dominating the charts at the time so they naturally had to be very careful when putting new artists out but they definitely went too far with it & ruined some potential classic albums for sure.

Singin' "Bagpipes from Baghdad" again
In my dad's drag draggin' a faggot in a Glad bag
Won't be the last time I make a dramatic entrance like that again
You thought I was lyin' when I said I think that I'm crossin' the line again
I've lost my mind, caution oh God I think I've just thought of another fucking line
Forgive me father, for I have sinned
But hip hop has left me brainwashed with a violent streak

It has happened to many artists that signed with Dre at the time.
The fucked up thing is King T's, Hittman's, Rakim's & Bishop Lamont's projects were all done, mixed & even handed for release.
