Yo! MTV Raps nostalgia is almost upon us with VH1’s Rock Docs special Yo: The Story of Yo! MTV Raps, which airs this Thursday. Tupac’s candid outburst about the Hughes brothers is a note worthy clip in and of itself. But the hilarity that ensues at Mike Tyson’s house is, as the saying goes, one for the history books.
Ed Lover and Doctor Dre probably didn’t have fence climbing on their agenda when they traveled to Tyson’s mansion to interview him. That’s exactly what they ended up doing since both Don King and Tyson couldn’t find the key to Tyson’s home. Doctor Dre is teased due to the
trouble he has getting over. Being stuck on a fence is funny enough, but Dre breaks Tyson’s lion ornament and Tyson is not happy about it. “He’s holding on to a lion ornament,” says Ed Lover. “He snaps it right off the top of the fence and Mike Tyson loses his mind.” When Ed Lover makes a joke about it Tyson hits him on the side of his stomach causing Ed to lose his balance and hit the grass briefly.
Lesson learned here: don’t go over Mike Tyson’s house, destroy his property and laugh about it. You just may catch a punch to the rib. Tyson being the teddy bear he is hugs on Doctor Dre once he finally made it to the other side. And how about those shorts overalls with no shirt underneath? We have to agree with Dre, “That show was one of the most hysterical things we’ve seen to this day.” Be sure to check out Yo: The Story of Yo! MTV Raps on VH1 this Thursday, June 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
