Not long ago Bishop Lamont was being hailed as the heir to the West Coast throne. He was Dr Dre's next prized protege. A lot has changed in the last year for Bishop, who is no longer associated with Aftermath Records.
Towards the end there was a lot of speculation about whether he was still signed or dropped from Aftermath. Bishop said all bullsh*t and drama gave him ulcers.
"I took a little time off after I was free because that was too much stress," Bishop says. "Actually from the stress of that whole ordeal I got stomach ulcers. I was sick and didn't know it."

And I will never make those mistakes again where I missed Thanksgivings and birthdays sometimes and different events to be in the studio slaving for a system that doesn't give a sh*t about that blood, sweat and tears."
