Rhymes 'Still Good' With Dr Dre

LATEST: Rapper BUSTA RHYMES bears no animosity towards his former record label boss DR. DRE, insisting they will "always be good".
The Touch It hitmaker - real name Trevor Smith - announced he was walking away from his Aftermath/Interscope Records contract last week (ends19Sep08), in favour of Universal Motown records.
Rhymes signed to Dre's Aftermath label in 2004, but four years on, his album Blessed had still yet to be released.
The label split is rumoured to have been the result of a dispute between the star and Interscope boss Jimmy Iovine over the constant album delays.
But during a New York radio interview this week (22Sep08), Rhymes claimed he and Dre will remain close, despite the label mess.
He told Hot 97's DJ Envy, "Me and Dre are still good. So even though I'm not in business with Aftermath or Interscope, I'm still with Aftermath. Me and Dre are always gonna be good."
And Rhymes took the opportunity to poke fun at his old label executives for providing him with the singles We Made It and Don't Touch Me (Throw Da Water On 'Em).
He added: "Big up to Interscope for, you know, giving me the leaked joints and the set-ups. Now we gonna consider those the leaked joints."
Rhymes will now release his highly-anticipated new album on Universal, and has changed the title to B.O.M.B. (Back On My Bulls**t).
