- The Reason B.I.G Changed His Orginal Name Biggie Smalls To The Notorious B.I.G Is Because The Original Biggie Smalls From California Punked Biggie Into Changing His Name.

Pretty hard to believe.

While touring in Oakland, UTFO asks a young local MC named Too Short to open up for them.

In 1978, Kurtis Blow needed a DJ. Russell Simmons was Kurtis' manager at the time and his brother Joseph (aka as Run of Run DMC) got the job. He got his name "Run" because he could cut between two turntables so quickly

Kurtis Blow releases "The Breaks" on Mercury records (went on to sell more than a million copies).

1981-ABC's 20/20 shows the first national television coverage of the "Rap Phenomenon".

While touring in Oakland, UTFO asks a young local MC named Too Short to open up for them

The Fresh Fest concert tour, featuring Run-D.M.C., Kurtis Blow, Whodini, Fat Boys, and Newcleus, is hip-hop's first big money making tour ($3.5 million for 27 dates).

Houston, Texas native James Smith brings together "The Geto Boys". The original lineup consisted of MCs Raheim, Jukebox, DJ Ready Red, and Sir Rap-A-Lot. The group also featured Little Billy, a dancing dwarf who later joined full-time as Bushwick Bill. Following a short break-up in 1988, Smith called on local rhymers Willie D and multi-instrumentalist Akshun (later known as Scarface) to join the lineup.

N.W.A's follow-up record, 1991's "n*ggaz4Life," sold 954,000 copies in its first weeks of release to become the first hardcore rap album to hit No. 1 on the charts, despite being banned by some record stores and seized by English authorities as obscene.

The best selling rap /R&B album ever in the US is Crazys*xyCool by TLC which has reached sales of 11 million, surpassing MC Hammer's Please Don't Hurt 'Em which has sold 10 million units.

lol hell yeah I'm lovin this sh*t..I keep checkin back every few hours for more sh*t.big props..I'm curious though as to what really happened to Houston's eye. if he didn't try to k*ll himself then what really went down??
somebody that claimed they was houston's cousin told me this

said it had something to do with extortion,this is the only person i heard this from tho so i cant back it 100%

what i do kno is that why would you try to k*ll yourself.....& in the end only your eye ended up gettin fu*ked up, ever hear of that in ANY suicide case?

its like on malcom x, how is malcom's daddy gonna commit suicide by bashing the back of his head with a hammer & lying down on the tracks?

think about it




damn, i gotta give myself props on this, i just went thru it & this is a gr8 read,props to all that contribute


can this be sticked or put in the classics? im sure its more than deserving, 75% of my posts have been confirmed/testified

The Ice Cube/W chain thing was kind of close to truth. What happened was that he was working with KAM (he was signed to cube's street knowledge productions), and cube jerked him on royalties. After trying conventional methods to get his money, KAM resolved to "take it out of his a*s". KAM's D.J., Solo, crossed paths with cube in the streets, and tried to have a gentlemen's talk about things. When cube tried to brush Solo off, Solo proceeded to beat the fu*k out of cube and snatched the 'W' chain off of his neck. There is a picture in murder Dog magazine with Solo, Kam, and B Real from Cypress Hill holding the chain. After this happened, Minister Farrakhan summoned KAM, who's a muslim, and cube to Chicago to have peace talks. KAM speaks on this in the song "Whoop Whoop".

The Def squad - Mobb Deep beef goes like this:
-Prodigy makes that interlude on the Imfamous album talking about "rappers bragging about how much weed you smoke and using outer space words that don't make sense"
-Redman and Keith Murray (Who rolled with a crew called LOD - legion of doom) Take it personal and run into mobb deep at a club, in NY, not sure which one.
-Keith and prodigy exchange blows, he talks about it on "In the long run"

(prodigy):
Swollen bullet wounds, head a*s n*ggas


Yo,
Who’s the one to be made into example
n*gga you pop sh*t wit the wrong guys this time
What! (gunshots)
My mobb’ll get on top ya, topple ya
Like a fall guy you fell down clown
Heard some four pound sound my ’86 style now (gunshot)
Ten years later still hold a firm ground
n*gga p thugly
Enter the ring wit something for anyone who wanna play gun
What up g?
I’ll clap you stop in your tracks, how about that?
Now analyze these cats wit live n*gga rap
You seen strapped, came outside all hype wit gats
Got juiced up, now bishop think he thuggin it black pimp
Let’s rap a taste
You get your little head pinched off
Brooklyn touched you, then left you for queens to finish off
fu*kin bi*ch, keith murray and his whole clique
Yea, you snuffed me in front of the cops, that bullsh*t
Told you come around the corner, no police and no witnesses
Little to your knowledge
You almost got shot but that’s aiight though
I’m a catch ya a*s again
You fu*kin immigrant, I'll get ya a*s k*lled for two cent
My mobb runnin sh*t you fu*kin carlton ave coward
The forecast call for gray skies and gun showers

My n*gga Money No runs with the mobb and was there the night it happened, he's also in the backround of the song bragging about knocking one of those LOD n*ggas out

Big had to change his name from "biggie smalls" because there's an artist who has that name already, some white cat who makes contemporary music or whatever. I remember this because back in the 90's I had like 2$ on me at the mall and was looking for one of those 99cent tape singles to waste money on. Saw some sh*t by an artist called "biggie smalls" and copped it thinking it was some new BIG sh*t, there was no picture on the cover. I got home and listened to it like wtf is this.

This is what I got from some people. DMX and Jay-Z did some battle inside a poolhall and it basically came out even. No one got it on tape, but they say it was classic. Anyone got anything else on this?

-Paul C was murdered by his wife and his brother.


-Eric. B beat down Large Professor and ran Kool G. Rap out of New York to Arizona after 'G. Rap revealed Large Pro produced most of the beats Eric B was supposed to have done on the Eric B. & Rakim albums and "wanted dead or alive".

-
A well respected hip hop beat digger said the same thing about Large Professor that he did in fact produce Eric and Ra's first albums.....If you listen to some of those records you can almost tell that Large Pro and Paul C. had a hand in them. Also several people have told me Large Pro did T.R.O.Y but allowed Pete to take credit for it.....

Something I always found interesting is about Snoop Dog's name. A "snoop" is a word crips call bloods but yet Snoop is a crip.
Yep also Dogg, Bloods call each other Dog's.. So it's odd. I've heard his early demo tapes and he says "A dogg not a locc." Someone told me that when he joined DR he was a blood, but they forced him to rep Crip cuz back in the day, Long Beach was all mostly a crip hood.
