The young man is tapping the name on the concrete wall of 2510 E. Biddle St., tapping it insistently, emphatically, as he makes his point. This name, spray-painted here and across the street and around the corner, these words, "1 Love Dre 1975-1999," were not left randomly to disrespect property and community. "Don't disrespect this by calling it graffiti," he says. "This is a piece of my heart right here." His name is Troy, and pieces of his heart are all around East Biddle Street and Milton Avenue: "RIP Dre The good die young.

Some rap records make you dance, and some make you think. But the best ones do both.That point may seem almost too obvious to bother making, but it's an important consideration when reviewing an album like Public Enemy's new "Apocalypse 91: The Enemy Strikes Black" (Def Jam/Columbia 47374, arriving in record stores today).

Heileman Brewing Co. in an estimated $290 million merger that will give the combined company control over about 10 percent of the U.S. beer market.The deal, announced in February, is expected to reinforce Stroh's position as the nation's No. 4 beer maker in a flat industry, giving the Detroit-based company a broader portfolio of national and regional brand-name beers, and what it hopes is an opportunity to cut costs and expand its distribution network and international sales.
