Priority Records Straight West Coastin' For 25th Anniversary! The West Coast Blueprint Available NOW!

Priority Records and Snoop Dogg Reconnect The West with  

The West Coast Blueprint!


In commemoration of Priority's silver anniversary, Creative Chairman Snoop Dogg has compiled 16 classic tracks from the Priority Records catalog for the Snoop Dogg Presents: The West Coast Blueprint, which also features a new recording by Snoop featuring The Hustle Boyz of Ice Cube's classic "Check Yo Self."  Snoop has also hand-picked three classic albums to be reissued today including Eazy-E's Eazy-Duz-It, EPMD's Strictly Business and Master P's Ghetto D.



"You will hear how many different facets of hip-hop Priority had a hand in.  Fans who might not have heard these records in a long time.  I know they're going to love hearing them again," says Snoop.  "And the youngsters who've never heard of them before, it's an important education.  See?  Learning can be fun."

Snoop Dogg Presents: The West Coast Blueprint features classic tracks from West coast rap legends like N.W.A, Yo-Yo, Ice Cube, and Mack 10, as well as crucial but lesser-known artists including King Tee and Ras Kass. The compilation showcases the diversity of sounds and styles within the now universally-known gangsta rap aesthetic. "Priority's always been associated with the west coast," explains Snoop, "but now with the power of EMI behind it, we can take this international."

Nationwide -- The National Institute of Small Business Grants, a leading global resource for business funding, has published their annual 2010 listing of business grant opportunities. The extensive listing is available online at, and is free to the public.

Nike, Microsoft, Intuit, Pepsi, MillerCoors, and IBM are just a few of the companies listed who have programs that are designed to give business grants away this year. Organizations include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Dayton Foundation, IFA Educational Foundation and the PepsiCo Foundation. Government agencies include the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), FTA (Federal Transit Administration), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and more.

A business grant is a unique form of funding whereas cash awards are given to entrepreneurs and business owners when they qualify for the specified guidelines. There is typically no expectation of repayment. Such grants are given away by major corporations for charity and public relations purposes, but are also given away by non-profits and government agencies to help rebuild or strengthen small business communities.

Because the Internet is saturated with so much fraudulent information pertaining to business grants, was launched in 2008 as the official online resource for real and legit funding opportunities. The site reports on all avenues of business funding, and features exclusive and original news, tips, videos, and a daily blog.

The site also has a Twitter account ( and a YouTube channel ( to support their social media outreach.

Author Terrance Dean Serves it "Straight, From Your Gay Best Friend" in New Column

Author Terrance Dean

Gives it to Us

"Straight, From Your Gay Best Friend"

In New Column on

Interactive One's

Author Terrance Dean

New York - When ESSENCE Magazine best-selling author Terrance Dean speaks, everyone listens! Perhaps his explosive memoir, Hiding In Hip Hop: On the Down Low in the Entertainment Industry - from Music to Hollywood (Atria/ Simon and Schuster May 2008) had something to do with it. Terrance tore the lid off the down low culture within the testosterone-driven world of Hip Hop, when he revealed a new dimension in a world notorious for its larger-than-life masculine swagger. Bravely unmasking the deep secrets of a prominent gay sub-culture within not only the entertainment community, but within the confines of Hip Hop, Hiding in Hip Hop became the runaway, most talked about, most Googled book sensation of the year.

Well Terrance Dean is back! Friday, February 12, 2010 will mark his debut as a contributing columnist/blogger on the Black Planet site "Hello Beautiful" at with a regular feature entitled, "Straight, From Your Gay Best Friend," also the title of his new highly anticipated advice book due out later this year from Agate/Bolden Books.

Via "Straight, From Your Gay Best Friend" Terrance will give advice served with a mix of sass, wit, and humor to the thousands of women who write in seeking answers to everything from love, relationships, career, and family. The column will also enlist real-life personal stories, entertainment news, contests, and a sexy man of the week pictorial.

"From 'Will and Grace' to 'Sex in the City' to the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' it is commonly known and accepted that a girl's real best friend is a gay man. Well for those not lucky enough to know one personally, here I am! I will be the one to tell it to the ladies straight, no chaser, about life, love, relationships, and everything in between. I am so grateful to Hello for having the vision to provide me and their readers with this wonderful opportunity," shares Dean.

Always writing, Dean's Straight, From Your Gay Best Friend - Who Else Is Going To Tell You The Truth About Work, Relationships, and Having a Fabulous Life! will be released with Agate/Bolden Books in October 2010. In addition, Dean conceived the idea and concept for a tribute book, Visible Lives: Three Stories in Tribute to E. Lynn Harris, for his dear friend and mentor, New York Times best-selling author, the late E. Lynn Harris. Visible Lives is being released with Kensington/Dafina Books in May 2010. It is an anthology in which Dean enlisted fellow authors Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy to write novellas in tribute to E. Lynn Harris who died in July 2009. "I wanted to create a project that honored and paid homage to one of the greatest black gay fiction writers of our time," said Dean.

Author, speaker, educator and now advice columnist, Detroit native, Terrance Dean continues to make waves as an advocate for change and empowerment. Having come to terms with himself in a homophobic culture he has positioned himself as a vanguard in hip hop, always pushing the envelope.

Dean has worked in the entertainment industry for over 15 years with heavy hitters such as Spike Lee, Rob Reiner, Keenan Ivory Wayans, and Anjelica Houston.

Dean also worked with MTV Networks helping to produce live award shows and events including MTV Video Music Awards, Movie Awards, Hip Hop Honors, Rock Honors, Sports & Music Festival, and Choose or Lose. He is the founder/creator of Men's Empowerment, Inc. and co-creator of The Gathering of Men with Adeyemi Bandele, husband and spiritual partner of Iyanla Vanzant. He is also the author of Reclaim Your Power! A 30-Day Guide to Hope, Healing and Inspiration for Men of Color (Random House/Villard - May 2003).

"There needs to be a continuum of open dialogue within the Black community, particularly within the Hip-Hop community. I am here. Let it begin with me," expresses Dean. "Straight, From Your Gay Best Friend" on the Hello Beautiful portal will be a wonderful extension of a much needed conversation."

Hello ( is one of Interactive One's suite of sites targeting the African American audience. Hello is a fun mix of fashion, beauty, entertainment and relationship talk carefully curated for the new urban

It is fitting that the historic 75th anniversary tour of Porgy and Bess should kick off during Black History Month as this masterpiece was at the forefront of audience desegregation. In 1935, the original cast refused to go on at the National Theatre in Washington, DC, unless the performers' family and friends could come to see them. Few operas have generated the controversy and acclaim that has surrounded Porgy and Bess, and few have equaled Porgy in affording a stepping stone to fame for black artists. Among the many distinguished names associated with the Porgy and Bess are Leontyne Price, Sidney Poitier, Dorothy Dandridge, Pearl Bailey, Maya Angelou, Sammy Davis, Jr., William Warfield, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, Diahann Carroll, Miles Davis, Kathleen Battle and Audra MacDonald. Most recently, Fantasia's extraordinary rendition of "Summertime" was proclaimed to be one of the best performances in the history of American Idol.

Directed by acclaimed black director Charles Randolph Wright (Preaching to the Choir, Mama I Want to Sing) and co-presented by black Broadway producer Willette Murphy Klausner (Three Mo' Tenors and Kat and the Kings),this production, probably for the first time, is interpreted from the perspective of the black experience.

Porgy and Bess was the first classical work to include the jazz rhythms and melodic twists that Gershwin learned during his many visits to Harlem. Using this music as the basis for his opera, he took jazz, a musical style developed in the black community, and raised it to the level of European music - which at the time was the standard for all that was serious, sophisticated and enduring.

In the traditional telling, Porgy is a victim - a cripple who is taken advantage of by Bess, an opportunist and woman of loose morals. This anniversary production sees Porgy as man whose self-worth and human dignity grow through the love of a woman - a love that gives him the courage to leave the comfort of a world he knows in pursuit of the woman who loved him. The character of Porgy is much closer to that in Dubose Heyward's book on which the opera is based. Porgy, at the story's open, believes that God made him a cripple and meant for him to be lonely. As Bess enters Porgy's life, he grows as a man and he, for the first time, engages with the world around him.

Director Wright was particularly concerned with how the characters were dressed. Although the setting is a poor area of Charleston and the characters are from the laboring class, Wright was curious why the costuming usually consisted of burlap and tatters.

"I am descended from the types of people represented in this opera" says Wright, himself a native of South Carolina. Searching through family photos from the era and South Carolina museum archives, he saw that no matter how impoverished, blacks took pride in how they dressed.

According to producer Michael Capasso, "In terms of American opera, there's Porgy and Bess -- and then there's everything else." When he first heard the opera at the Houston Opera's 1976 staging in honor of the bicentennial, he was "overwhelmed by the grandeur and the glory of the music the overall greatness of the piece." Capasso, founder of the Dicapo Opera Theatre in New York City, goes on to say "Opera fans go see Porgy and Bess because they know it's an amazing production. And people who are into musicals like it because, in their mind, it's almost like a Broadway show".

According to Ms Klausner, the 75th anniversary production of Porgy and Bess will tell the story in the way in which it was meant to be told. Capasso and Klausner agree with director Randolph-Wright that this production of Porgy and Bess will "build up the community". The audience will experience the passion, perseverance, originality and pride in the lives of the Catfish Row inhabitants.

The production kicks off February 18 at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Van Wert, Ohio. Complete tour schedule is attached.
