It’s being reported that there is a Straight Outta Compton sequel already in the works.

Just one week after the film’s $60.2 million debut weekend, there is talk of a second film that will chronicle the rise and fame of 2Pac, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Kurupt and Warren G. According to reports, the movie, that will also depict the rise of Tha Dogg Pound will be called, Dogg Pound 4 Life.

Dogg Pound vet Daz Dillinger tells TMZ that the project will pick up where Straight Outta Compton left off and will detail the influence Death Row Records had on the hip hop community. However, producers will not be working directly with Suge who is currently behind bars.

HipHollywood has reached out to reps involved in the apparent project and is waiting on word back. But, it sounds like this is more of a dream for Daz than anything else. Do you believe Dillinger?  Or does the idea of Kurupt, Snoop and Death Row all in one film with the title Dogg Pound 4 Life make sense?

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
