Rap acts on television this week include Nelly, who performs on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ on Tuesday and ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on Thursday; 213, who perform on ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest’ on Tuesday; Andre 3000 of Outkast, who drops the band’s latest video on ‘Total Request Live’ on Wednesday; and Mase, who appears on ‘Live with Regis and Kelly’ on Thursday.
Jim Farber of the New York Daily News reviewed 213’s debut ‘The Hard Way’, giving the supergroup comprised of Snoop Dogg, Warren G, and Nate Dogg a tough assessment. “Of course, anything Snoop Dogg touches has to have some spark. The man can still claim the smoothest flow in the game,” Farber said. “But the fact is, 213’s members never made an equally weighted supergroup to begin with. They bring together a rap deity (Snoop), a one-hit-wonder (Warren), and a one-trick pony (Nate, a guy who sings pretty much the same hook on every cut). No wonder 213 adds up to zilch.”
213, featuring Nate Dogg, Snoop Dogg, and Warren G., are out with the video to their new single ‘Groupie Luv’. Watch it via Blastro below.
