After the news report, an entire scene in the tour bus is missing: DJ Yella is watching porn plus there is a little discussion.

From his sleeping cabin, someone of the entourage takes a peek at Yella in front of the TV: "Yella."
DJ Yella: "Hmm?"
The guy goes on: "You in there watching porn with the door open?"
DJ Yella: "Yeah."
When the guy returns to his cabin, MC Ren, who has been sitting next to Yella with a note pad all along, adds: "Yo, that's what I said, man."
The others look at him with scepticism: "What the fuck?"
MC Ren recognizes the weirdness of the situation and explains: "No, it's not even like that... Fuck y'all, man. I'm back here tryin' to write. Fuck y'all, man."
Someone makes a snarky comment: "Oh, you tryin' to write..."
MC Ren goes to the sleeping cabins and starts shaking them: "Fuck y'all sleep."

After the concert, a conversation between Eazy-E and Jerry about the incredible record sales follows.
Jerry: "You're flying up the Billboard 200 albums chart. R&B and hip-hop charts too. You have any idea how many records we're selling? Ruthless has arrived, Eric. We're fucking huge."
Eazy-E: "That is dope, Jerry. That's dope."

Subsequently, a short TV report with national judgements about the bad album:
- "The combined law enforcement associations of Texas today called for a halt to sales of the album."
- "I believe that the rap music promotes violence against authority and, consequently, violence against law enforcement."


The following shot begins a few frames earlier in the Theatrical Version (no screenshots).

Tomica: "Um, record executive assistant. But, damn. I didn't realize we was going on like a date date."
Eazy-E: "I don't even know how to take that. I got my collared shirt on. I brought you to this nice restaurant. Really?"
Tomica: "Okay. That is not the kind of collared shirt they was talking about. It's cute, though. And you didn't take off your hat like they asked you to."
Eazy-E: "And I'm not."
Tomica: "Oh, really?"
Eazy-E: "I ain't taking off my hat for nobody. I think they know that."
Tomica: "So what? You bring all your little females here, don't you?
Eazy-E: "The special ones."
Tomica: "Okay."
Eazy-E: "I'm playing. I'm playing. There you go getting sensitive."

Snoop passes him a Chronic joint which gets him in the right mood.

Tomica asks in bed: "You okay? Baby. Let me see."

In the car, someone asks: "Why you so tense, Dre?"
Dr. Dre: "No, I'm cool."
Homie: "Man. No, you're not, man. You've been in that house, what? A month now? Nigga, and not one track? I mean, what's up?"
Dr. Dre: "There's too much interference. Man, you know how they tryin' to starve me out. Playin' games with my motherfuckin' money, man."
Snoop Dogg: "That's why the house was so goddamned empty."
Dr. Dre: "Hey, come on, man."
