The West Coast MC's current opus, 'No Trespassing,' isn't a far cry from the previous 18 albums he's released in his storied career. He touches on weed with 'Cush Cologne,' tackles infidelity on the soulfully decadent, Martin Luther-assisted track 'I Got Caught' and serves up boastful spending on 'Boss.'

He compares himself to Oscar-winning actor George Clooney, explains how he was schooled by Jill Scott then smoked a joint with her, describes Jive Records as "shady" and tells the story of a pimp who fathered a prostitute.
