    Warren G Turns 42
    West Coast rapper Warren G turns forty-two today. The Regulator started his career in 1990 by linking up with childhood friends Nate Dogg and Snoop Dogg, in which they formed their group “213”, which they named after their Long Beach area code. The group split after Nate Dogg and Snoop Dogg signed deals with Death Row Records. Warren G had the option too, but he decided to work on his solo career. In April, the Regulator released his single “Party We Will Throw Now”, which featured Game and the late Nate Dogg. You can follow the rapper/producer on his twitter @regulator.

    Big Pun Would've Been 41 Today
    <a href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2012/11/big-pun-birthday-tomorrow-internet-celebrates-today/#1">As mentioned yesterday</a>, the late Bronx rapper Big Pun would have been 41 years old today. Big Pun is best known for his amazing lyrical feat, and being the first solo Latin rapper to achieve platinum status with <em>Capital Punishment</em>. Accompanied by fellow Bronx native Fat Joe, Pun was on his way to superstardom. Sadly, his struggles with his weight led to his untimely demise, as the MC would die of a heart attack at the tender age of 29. Until this day, the Big Punisher is heralded as one of the greatest lyricists of all time.

    Eve Turns 33 Today
    Eve turns 33-years-old today. Her debut album <em>Let There Be Eve… Ruff Ryder’s First Lady</em> earned her the respect as a capable MC, and placed the Philly native as one of the industry's most standout rap stars. Eve has won a Grammy for her collaboration with Gwen Stefani on “Let Me Blow Ya Mind,” and started her own clothing line, Fetish. Lately, she's been preparing for the release of her new album <em>Lip Lock</em>, which is scheduled to come out in 2013.
