I’ve been meaning to pen something about Six2 for a hot one, but I could never find out any real background info on dude. Turns out, the fine folks at DubCNN felt the same way, so they just went ahead and interviewed him. Half my work is done. Kudos.
Anyways, if the name Six 2 doesn’t ring a bell, don’t worry, I guarantee you know his work.
If you don’t remember him capping off the classic “Xxplosive,” you might’ve heard him fill up the blanks on DOC’s last album, The Duece. If you aren’t up on West Coast legends, Six moved east to work with Timbaland, and ending up co-writing one of The Pussycats Dolls first hits, “Wait A Minute,” along with Timbo’s Justin Timberlake-featured, “Release” from Shock Value. Versatility, people.
In my opinion, though, Sixty 2’s most noteworthy piece of work is “Weed Snortin,” the unreleased and unheralded Dr.Dre-produced ode to getting straight fucked up. It’s does go deeper than just getting fucked up, though. Listen carefully, and you’ll realize it’s really about pimping.
“I Dick Van Dykes/ and hoes that will fuck in the back of a clean ass truck…”
If you’re unfamiliar with Six2, do yourself a favor a check the links. Dude is mad talented, and also seriously funny. If you are in the know, get your facts up to date.
And if that’s not enough, the DUBCNN interview covers er’thang.
