Eyedea and Abilities got signed to Epitaph before Atmosphere, but Slug had something to do with it. (Same with Sage.) Wrong forum?

Okay, well-Here's my mainstream fact for today...

Ice Cube wrote Eazy's greatest hit with his classic...

"Cuz the boyz in the hood are always hard."

When he was 18, in his high school classroom, bored during a lecture.

-Peace!

1970 - The Last Poets, pioneers of hip-hop, record their self-named LP on Douglas Records, using a mixture of spoken word and jazz drumming and instrumentations.
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 Crazys3xyCool by TLC which has reached sales of 11 million, surpassing MC Hammer's Please Don't Hurt 'Em which has sold 10 million units.

ANOTHER Firm Fact:

The Firm album was hated on by critics because Nas, Foxy, Nature & AZ where rapping about selling major amounts or drugs, when their real lives where far from that lifestyle.

What these haters didn't understand was that the Firm album was a "themed" album. The Firm album was made to be like a black version of an italian mobb movie which where very popular at the time. It was the most hated on but the most creative rap album that year and it was ironic how black people in the hood love those mobb movies but hated to hear a black man tell those same stories. They were playing parts in a movie like album, not pretending that they really sold ki's...
nice nice.. but I have to add up this next detail;

Nas came up withe Firm idea while he was in the studio with Raekwon during the recording off "Only Built For Cuban Linx...". Actually Firm was loosely based and fully inspired by Rae's classic lp. Oh, Nas actually did 2 two tracks with Raekwon but only one got out. The other one was never released.

Ghostface actually broke Ma$e's jaw real bad. Hence Kanye's line from Through The Wire "now I know how Ma$e felt"

This cant be true. No hate or nE thing but The Massacre didn't even sell that many in its first week and that holds the record for most sold in one week.

Ghostface flipped out on Tigger on BET Rap City live/ I saw Tigger in B-more i asked him about that and he said it was from the movie Goodfellas it was a joke and he said he going to let people know it was a joke because to many people asking about that the next time they should a rerun they had a little explanation about how it wasn't real. Plus who would want to fu*k tigger up he's everyone's Cousin. LOL


Fabolous & Paul Cain are brothers/I didn't know that.

I ain't joke was made for EPMD & Big daddy
Rakim and EPMD Beefed with each other Remember when he said EE don't even try to be & EPMD said people try to say we sound like the R 30 day later the LP went gold so what you saying

Rakim took Big Daddy name off when he called him he tought Big Daddy was talking about him because Big Daddy said the rap soloist don't want no of this.

50 cent wh0ored DMX on piggy back

Cassidy scared to battle Murda Mook @ the end of the battle against Arty Mook said if Cassidy didn't want to battle all he had to say was he didn't want to do this cause he mind is on other things Weeks later Cassidy said that. But said he would battle 50 don't get me wrong i fu*k with Cassidy in fact i would put my money on him i'm just saying what i saw.

Master P is the first rapper to make everyone drop album quicker than two to three years

Wu-tang is the first HipHop group to drop solo album and also drop single and do it well

Luda is the first rapper to make a video in Africa.

I think Nas is the only RAPPER TO HAVE TWO 5 MIC ALBUMS I might be wrong Jay might be there also

LL and Canibus battle was fixed

H to the IZZO was took from Biggie on the Victory

Prop Me lets get it.

Mos and Kweli went to high school together
Mos Def & Talib Kweli also own/owned a book store in Brooklyn called "Nkuru books". They used to hang out there. Whilst there they met a fellow rapper who worked there by the name of Rubix (real heads will know who i mean) who later went onto to record several songs with Kweli & release a few underground 12"s, most notabley on the SUperrappin label & with I.G. Off & Haz...

Here Is What Came To Mind..............

3. Havoc Had An Older Brother (i Believe Who Went By The Name Of Gurilla Black) Whom Was murdered; He Was Very Good Friends W/ Littles

5. AND FOR THE GRAND DUMBIES!!!..................NORE IS NOT FROM IRAQ, THAT IS THE NAME FOR A SECTION OF THE QB
>3. Havocs brother was called k!lla Black as mentioned on several songs from 1995-1997, when on the song 'Hoodlum' featuring Rakim, he declared "Killa B, forever in my memory, i spill some henny then i keep it movin..." which subsequently let the world know where k!lla Black was (due to the fact he was catching cases)*for reference check song 'Temperature's Rising' from 'The Infamous' album

>5. N.O.R.E is actually from a place nicknamed Iraq. The actual name is called "Lefraq", but due to the, so-called, "war" like environment, N.O.R.E considered it more like "Iraq".

That incident stemed from an allegation that he slept with Ghostfaces wife.(That allegedly confirmed Mases decision to leave rap and join the church)*Ghost even references the incident off of a song on Bulletproof Wallets (although i can't remember the name of the song! It was one of the singles tho, y'all will know it.)

Nope not true. Scarface has 3, Jay has 2, and Tribe called Quest has 2. I think there are a few more.

Yeah 'face has 3 (including the Geto Boys album)

Quest has 2, Jay-Z has 2, Dr Dre has 2... actually im not even sure about that. Damn.. why did they do that issue where they re-classified their mic ratings? Messed up all the figures i had from back in the day...lol


Another fact...


Before Prince Pauls group 'The Gravediggaz' (featuring RZA, Poetic & Frukwan), there was a group before that (circa 1991-1993) that was called 'The Gravediggaz', which was none other than MF GRIMM (aka The Grimm Reaper) & Rob Swift (DJ & formerly of the X-ecutionerz)
