^^That is definitely true. I saw a show in the early 90s with Nas, Fugees, Coolio, all before any of them every blew up to become the stars they became.

You know that Biggie and Nas were hyped in 94 as the saviors of NY. Well supposedly they were on some tour and Nas began freestyling while they were drunk or something. Biggie fell asleep and then woke up and Nas was still going!

After recording Ready To Die Big learned to keep his lines in his head without writing them. This was a technique he taught Jay while Jay was doing Reasonable Doubt, then Jay eventually taught Ja Rule. None of them actually write lyrics.

Supposedly Jungle and Lake also got Prodigy his chain back after he had been robbed...

Lil Wayne was signed to CMR at the age of 10, and him and BG(than called Lil Doogie) was in a group called the B.G.'z. Than he shot accidently himself than his daddy died so he layed off the mic for a minute.

Juvenile wasnt signed to CMR until 97. Actually, BG was supposed to be the first artist to drop from CMR when they went national, but BG went to jail so the dropped Juvenile first.

ODB got gonorreha (sp?) twice from the same woman.

At the time he died, Big L was in negotiations with Jay-Z to do a solo joint for Rocafella. I've heard this a couple of times.

I also heard that Big L's murder was a case of mistaken identity. The shooter(s?) thought he was his cousin or some sh*t. << No, he was k*lled because of his brother's beef. The shooter took out someone who was feeding his brother. k*ll a man by k*lling his love and his money.

Freaky Tah (RIP) got k*lled because of mistaken identity.

Method Man was dusted during the recording of the Mary J. Blige "All I Need" video. (That explains some of his facial features in the video)

In the months before he died, Big Pun had gotten so heavy that he had to be driven to and from the stage in a golf cart. Performing was said to be real hard & tiring for him. He was something like 700 pounds at the time of his death.

Once Ghostface k*llah was a guest at the "Rap City" TV programm. Cappadonna joined him later, coming with a briefcase in his hands. Tigga asked Ghost about the contents of that briefcase but Ghost didn't say a word. Then Tigga started smiling and sh*t, so Ghost asked him smth like: "Do I look funny or what? I'm not joking, so stop fu*king smiling at me".

Back in the days when 50 wasn't popular, he got dismissed from a club for dissing Ghostface k*llah !

Ol' Dirty Bastard's album "N***a Please" was originally planned to be named «Dirty World» or «Revolution: The Black Man Is God».

RZA didn't like that Jay-Z called himself Jigga - because it sounds similar to GZA.

Method Man once said that he likes working with Redman more than with the WU.
(It was on MTV)

RZA once said that if he wasn't in hip-hop business, he would like to be a scientist.

GZA is not a 5%-er anymore.

I've heard that Ghostface k*llah has some kind of diabetes so he doesn't drink any alcohol.

Method Man was one of the most favourite rapper of Notorious B.I.G.

While reading a magazine, Method Man found out that a video game "Wu–Tang Shaolin Style" came out for Sony Playstation. He got mad at the rest of the Clan for not telling him about that. Later he stated that this game was not that good, mainly because of the characters' movements.

Masta k*lla smacked a cartoon drawer for making fun or sum sh*t of the Wu in a cartoon strip. MK went to his house laid him out in one punch and said "wu-tang clan ain't nuthin ta fu*k wit" and that story has also been said by the guy who got laid out.

2pac Appeared in the Salt-N-Pepa video, "Whatta Man."

2pac had to read to newspaper to his mother when being young and in new york(he said that in an interview with davy d)

2pac had read for the part of "Bubba" in Forrest Gump (1994).

2pac was offered a record contract at the age of 13. However, his mother refused to let him sign anything at such a young age. She felt 2pac had a lot to learn about the world before joining the music industry.

10 albums have been released after 2pacs 1996 death; all have gone platinum.

2pac was voted the 86th Greatest Rock 'n Roll Artist of all time by Rolling Stone.

2pac was originally cast in Menace II Society (1993) but was fired after a physical altercation with director Allen Hughes.

As a teenager, 2pac studied drama at Baltimore's School for the Arts, where 2pac rhymed under the name MC New York.

When 2pac was 12 years old, his mother enrolled him in Harlem's 127th St Ensemble. 2pac played Travis in "A Raisin in The Sun" in his first acting role

According to Guiness Book of Records 2004, 2pac is the highest selling rap/hip-hop artist selling over 67 million copies worldwide

In a 2005 Rolling Stones Magazine Vote, Tupac was named #6 of the '100 immortal artists of all time' behind the likes of Elvis and Lennon

2pac is the first rap/hip-hop artist in history to have a wax model of himself set to be placed in Madamme Tussaud's in Las Vegas


The Daily News reported that RZAs family is allegedly the largest extended family living in New York City.

50 cent Has a son: Marquise, nicknamed 25 Cent (how stupid can you be?)

50 cent does not drink alcohol or smokes.

50 cent Used to be a boxer.

50 cent created a dance known as the "two step". (WHAAAAAAAAAT?!)

50 cents cartoon-like photo on the cover of his album "The Massacre" was meant to make him look like a Ninja Turtle, his son's favorite cartoon characters. 50 is also a fan of the cartoon, his favorite turtle is Donatello.
^^ he doesnt really look like a turtle, so thats funny (or ridiculous) sh*t

Jay-z went to high school with Gza/Genius and when asked if he beat him in a battle he gave this ''not in a million years" look
-mtv All eyes on Jay-z



50 Cent (born Curtis Jackons), the artist behind the "How To Rob" song, that infuriated many rappers, was shot once in each leg and in the jaw Wednesday in New York City. He is in Jamaica Hospital in stable condition. 50 Cent, who is 22 years old, was sitting in a parked car with 22 year old a*sociate Alton Brown. An as yet unknown a*sailant pulled up in a blue GM and fired 9 shots from a 9MM handgun, around 11:22AM.

The victims drove themselves to the hospital, and while 50 Cent's injuries are not life threatening, he was about to go through surgery late last night. The suspect was a black male in a black short sleeved shirt, with a stocky build. 50 Cent was also a*saulted last month in Manhattan where he and members of his group were trying to record his debut album, The Power Of The Dollar, which is slated for a June release. He also stated that he has confirmed beef with Ja Rule, stemming from an incident in Atlanta, where 50 Cent allegedly punched Ja Rule in the face. Sticky Fingers of Onyx and Ghostface also responded on their records to 50 Cent's song, How To Rob. Check out the 50 Cent Interview in Real Audio, from 50cent.com



on his older albums he talked about being shot 3 times then he got signed to Shady/Aftermath and it magically turned to 9 times... 9 shots were fired from a black 9mm and 3 hit 50.

He doesn't have the scars... he only has the mouth one, and the body ones and he says the rest are in his legs which would be 6 to the legs... I highly DOUBT he would be able to walk after 6 shots to the legs... esspecially without a limp. PLUS he never showed all his scars he shows three on the dvd and shows and sh*t and then he says the rest are in his legs.
Joe Budden talks about him lying about the amount of bullet wounds, there is a site with the victims stats and what happened... it has the records of his getting shot.


Odb collected a welfare check with a platinum record

Odb stole the mic at the grammys and screamed "wu tang is for the children"

The wu is the crew that has the most classics in hip-hop.

Tupac loved, (He Said "Love" and you don't say that when you are a thug to another click,) Wu-tang (at the end of Masta k*lla's School Track).

Biggie's Favorite Rapper was Method Man ( i remember seeing this on tv with him saying it before he got k*lled)

In an old interview I once read on Interscope and Aftermath, they said that theyre label heads told the artist not to mention Wu-tang in any derog way of because it would hurt their sales.

Wu-tang along with their Affiliates is THE LARGEST hip-hop and RAp Family.

Plus few artists have a world wide following like Wu-tang. I mean Wu- Wear would be dead if it werent for germans loving them so much. People from the Middle EAst who are probably Harder more and from more Dangerous hoods listen to Wu-Tang.

None of the wu tang clan wears earrings.

Wu-technologies b.k.a. Wu-tang Corp was never "officially" exposed as a manufacturing company. They were supposed to be manufacturing t.v. and automobiles sh*t like that.

the beef between the RZA and u-god over money is OVER-but they r still beefing over something

Raekwon's second album was tentatively tittled : Blood on Chef's apron.

O.D.B.'s second album was supposed to be : God made dirt and dirt don't hurt

Rza and o.d.b. were supposed to have an album called " The drunk monk
and The Abbot"

Ghostface was arrested in november of 1998 prior to S.C. because he was rolling with guns in the trunk of the car and police searched.

Method man started a riot in a nite club.

Odb turned up at a wu concert on the run from cops then went to mcdonalds and got caught.lmfao!

I heard Ghostface has sickle cell disease (the same as Prodigy from Mobb Deep)

That bit about Masta k*llah punching some guy out for cartoon Wu characters is true (link:
) --- just for reference, from left to right, top to bottom, it goes Method Man (big M on chest), Rza (Rza=Razor Sharp...), ODB (no clue about this one), Inspectah Deck (magnifying glass), U-God (halo and Jesus piece is an obvious God reference), Gza (scholar), Raekwon (chef) and Ghostface (Halloween ghost costume). ^^Yeah I remember seeing Coker re-tell his story on VH1 or something...he said some dude walked up to him in a parking lot I think and asked if he was Cheo Coker...he responded yes and instantly got punched out...the funniest part was right after he hit the deck, the dude said something like Wu Tang Aint Nuthin T' fu*k Wit...apparently, the guy was Masta k*llah^.

From Wu-Tang Manual (one of the funniest stories in there):
Rza goes into discussing this show Wu Tang did when they werent that famous yet....he talks a ruckus breaking out among the crowd....Wu, for some reason, gets into it....then he says some n*gga jumps up on stage and starts firing his gun up at the ceiling....and according to Rza, "when I say some n*gga, I mean ODB!!"....I just thought the way he worded it was funny

Wu Tang show recently in NYC....Rza is giving shout outs in the middle of the show to various people in attendance...he shouts out Vibe, who are in attendance to review the show and whatnot....Method Man, very non-chalantly, says Man, fu*k Vibe....maybe one of those had to be there moments
