I have been waiting on this movie to happen for years now, looks like there is an actual script that has been written for the biopic on N.W.A: "Straight Outta Compton". There's been talk for the last few years about the possibility of a story about "The World's Most Dangerous Group" coming to the big screen after the success of "Notorious" which told the story of the late Notorious B.I.G. released in theaters back in 2009. Allhiphop.com is reporting that John Singleton who directed and wrote classics flicks such as Boyz N The Hood, Poetic Justice, and Baby Boy, was asked about his involvement in the N.W.A project:
“I can’t talk too prematurely about the stuff I’m doing because nothing’s come to fruition yet, but Cube and I are talking about doing the N.W.A. story… The script is really, really good, and so we’re just figuring it out. New Line really wants to make it.”
Hopefully everything can come together, so we can get this in theaters by Summer/Fall 2012. I mean it's only right since there was never a N.W.A reunion album, we'll see what happens though!
As a fan of Hip Hop.. not just the music, but the culture.. I was so excited to see 2 west coast legends on the same stage! Plus I loved how this years Summer Jam was in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City. I think all we were missing was Dr Dre! (YEAH RIGHT... He's been on the DL for a minute now haha) But man, it was exciting to see Tha Dogg Pound too. So many DPGC classics on my MP3 player including a catalog of 12 inches in my basement! (But some of ya'll don't know what I'm talking about LOL) Then to see WC kill it with Ice Cube... Most would pay $50++ for a ticket and downtown experience as this years Summer Jam.. but we hooked it up for just $25 :) And I'm happy to tell ya that we OVERSOLD OUT! hahah.. Meaning we sold 5000 tickets and released an extra 500 at the door. 5500 plus listeners experienced the same sensation I did. The up and coming West Coast artists that opened the show also did they damn thang!
Big ups to those that came to the after party too! Sadly I had to go right when Chino4Real came on.. morning show duties called ;) but from what I seen, we had a packed house there too! Shout out to my boy Judon with J.E.T. Limousine for the ride to the show, after party, and back to the crib!
I HAD A BLAST!... and now I wonder like many here at Millcreek Broadcasting... How are we going to top this show, next year??... hmmmm
Thank you everyone that came to this years Summer Jam!

Summerjam 2010 is almost here and there are a few things you need to know about this concert. First, it is a VERY EARLY SHOW. The gates open at 5:00pm with the first act on stage at 6:00pm. The show will be finished by 10:00pm. Snoop has a long set. I caution anyone thinking they will be fine by arriving at 7:00pm or later! You do not want to be later than 7:00pm on this show!!!!! UTA Trax is located on Main Street and has a stop at the Gallivan Center. I suggest using Trax to get to and from the Gallivan Center on Wednesday night. Parking will be difficult as there are other events happening downtown at the same time.
Second, you will have to go through security to enter the Gallivan Center. Security will be conducting full pat downs and bag searches to ensure the safety of our listeners and guests at Summerjam. We understand this may seem like an inconvenience when entering the venue, but we would like to assure you that this is for everyone's safety.
A lot of people have asked about the set up due to construction at the Gallivan Center. The stage will be placed on Gallivan Avenue by the Wells Fargo building. We expect this to be a very unique experience for all those attending due to the limited amount of tickets available. We are hoping to provide you with one of the biggest Hip Hop concerts to ever hit Salt Lake City, and give you great views while you are there. You will have better views and closer views of the artists because of the limitations in size.
U92 is hosting the Official Summerjam After Party after the show at The Depot. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at The Depot box office. VIP tables are available as well, and can be purchased through The Depot.
Tickets are going fast and we can only accommodate 5,000 people. Tickets will be available for purchase at the gates at the Gallivan Center if they are not sold out. Tickets will be available for $25. Can't wait to see you there! This will be one EPIC concert.
