Del The Funky Homosapien is Ice Cubes cousin.

Del also wrote the song "No Vaseline" for Ice Cube.

Jay-Z wrote a song for Dre. Either "Forgot About Dre" or "Still Dre" can't remember.

Knocturnal got his start writing songs for Dr. Dre.

Eminem once approached Kid Rock and challenged him to a battle before Kid Rock told him that he heard him and that Em needed to slow down his rapping.

Busta Rhymes got his start rapping when Charlie Brown(LONS) started dissing him at school and Busta came back the next day and battled him.

Daz Dillinger and Nate Dogg are both cousins of Snoop Dogg.

Warren G is Dr. Dre's stepbrother.

Eminem once offered House of Krayzies(Twiztid) $500 to open up for them.

O'ryan, Omarion, and Marques Houston are brothers.

Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" was played by chance as it was a B-Side on a single.

Lil Flip was a millionaire before he turned 18.

"All Eyez on Me" sold less than B.I.G's album, and both albums were doubles.

B.I.G sold "10 Million" on L.A.D, making in the biggest sellingof all time

Source:

2Pac is teh biggest selling rapper of all time (off multipule releases) selling 36 Million albums worldwide

Source:


Fugees are the biggest selling group of all time.

Source:

"MC Hammer's second LP sold more than 10 million copies and remains the biggest selling rap album of all time."

Source:



I can see where the confusion was. I think B.I.G sold a little more tho...

Eazy E didn't have aids. He was murdered in the hospital he was tooken to. Morphene was injected into his body.

You know that Morphine is painkiller that is regularly used in hospitals, is there any evidence to support this, like a coroners report or an autopsy?

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"


Hahah..i always thought he was referring to Mase's puffy as cheeks

-DMX is the only rapper ever to debut at #1 with his first 5 albums.
good fact...

Sheek Louch started rapping at 13 under the name Shawn Ski...

The L.O.X. original group name was The Warlox...

I forgot the number, but The Warlox wasnt just Jada, Styles & Sheek... it had like 2 or 3 other members n tha group...

Sheek & Jada went to community college....

Cam'Ron was a All-American basketball player in high school...

Master P graduated from college but no one that he ever signed graduated from college or even went to college...

Eminem doesn't even have a GED....

Biggie never got a GED....

false...

Life After death & All Eyez On Me are considered to have gone diamond but they both only sold more than 5 million copies a peice...

when ever an artist puts out a double-disc album, then it counts as two albums...

like Diplomatic Immunity.... it is considered to have gone Gold but it only sold over 250,000 copies....

But Hammer is sold the most rap records with 10 million....

Biggie rarely sold drugs... he used to work at a grocery store across the street from where he lived...

2Pac only sold drugs for 2 weeks when he was a kid... he quite selling drugs, not because selling drugs was bad but because he was sooooo bad at selling drugs....

the only rapper to acctually live his raps are DMX... he talked about robbing people instead of selling drugs... now he got caught robbing people on the highway...

might as well add some sh*t to this thread:

original Wu Tang Clan name was "All In Together Now" and it only featured RZA, GZA and ODB..later on Method Man & Ghostface joined...

Masta k*lla was the last official 9th member of the Wu...RZA told him and k*llah Priest that who ever wrote their verse first for "Da Mystery of Chessboxin", could get on the song...Killah Priest fell asleep in the studio...when he woke up...Masta k*lla was in the booth

Whoo Kid & Sha Money XL are cousins...thats how Whoo Kid met 50 Cent

Denzel Washington was originally gonna be on the "Detox" album when the album was originally gonna be a concept album (Dre and Denzel met of course while filming "Training Day")

Ghostface use to cover his face on the early Wu Videos because he was on the run

During the first Source Awards, when the Wu peformed, many of the people had had scarfs over their faces because they were all fon the run

Remedy (the white rapper from Wu Tang) became a member because his father is RZA's lawyer

Method Man is originally from VA

Kurupt and Roscoe are originally from Philly

DJ Premier is from TX

Xzibit got that scar from getting jumped by Suge Knight's boys

The Ghostwriters for "2001" by Dr. Dre were Jay Z, Eminem, Knocturnal, Royce the 5'9, Xzibit

The D.O.C. wrote all of Dre's verses for "The Chronic"

The group only consisted of:

1. The Notorious B.I.G. under the name Frank White

2. Jay Z under the name Iceberg Slim

3. Charli Baltimore

4. P.Diddy

5. Lil' Cease of Junior M.A.F.I.A. under the name Cease-A-Leo

6. another member called "Uncle Paulie" that is probably somebody from the Junior M.A.F.I.A.
