Glancing over at a soda machine emblazoned with a mural of Snoop's face, the son of Dr. Dre knows that having his "uncle" in his midst makes this the proper place to give the music cultivated by him and his father a brand new look. "It feels like a big hug when I walk in here," says Curtis Young. "Like he's always watching me."
The new recordings, planned for early Spring, will be followed by a tour which is slated to be announced in the next few weeks. As we continue to track the making of the album in Lake Forest, Kutzer and "Big A" --responsible for bringing Young and the Wright brothers together-- say there is a reality show called "Seeds of Hip-Hop" in development. The show will focus on the sons of famous rappers who are forging their own name in the hip-hop world. Talks with VH1 are currently taking place, with plans to include Young and the Wright brothers as they develop this album project.Though they've said this is not an effort to simply rehash their father's legacy, it certainly looks like the next generation NWA project is coming straight outta...OC.

"By it being in our blood and our birthright, we're able to continue what our fathers imprinted the game with as far as gangster rap," Young says."We're working on doing what we do best and combining that with the house music as well and bringing some of the showmanship back."
