1. ’90s Rap TV Show You Probably Never Heard Of Starring Famous Rappers. (BONUS: Eazy-E PSA & Other Ruthless Records Commercials).

    New Generation (or New Generations , depending on how you feel) is (apparently) an independently produced show based in Los Angeles that aired in the mid ’90s, a public access-like alternative to Pump It Up , if you will (we’re still diggin’ for more info) hosted by Kenima Ivra and Greg Wylie. In this mind-blowing 12-minute clip full of a season’s worth of highlights, you’ll witness Eazy-E and his then newly signed artists Bone Thugs-N-Harmony shooting a commercial for their EP, Creepin on ah Come Up , Tupac on the positive tip answering questions inside a classroom, a very (and we do mean very) intense Redman giving advice on how to make it, and a young as hell Snoop Dogg kickin’ a few lines about why he loves them “big women.” (Don’t blink or you’ll miss Dr. Dre dancin’ on stage, Warren G having a blast in the club, and Domino performin’ “Sweet Potato Pie.”)

    As a bonus, check out a rarely seen public service announcement from Eazy about protecting your kids against fires as well as a bunch of Ruthless Records TV spots, including a parody of John Carpenter’s cult sci-fi political action flick, They Live , and some entertaining ads for E’s Str8 off tha Streetz of Muthaphukkin Compton .

    Eazy E Str8 off tha Streetz Album Commercials.

    Some really nicely executed TV spots from 1995. Worth watching just to see Eazy say, “Ninjas did it.”
