Good read y'all..good read. before I start, I highly recommend The Wu Manual, Hip Hop Files (By Martha Cooper) and DMX bio EARL!!

Please bare with me..after reading this all, I can't remember which has posted before..!

When Chino XL ad beef with Pac, there was a shooting at his daughters birthday party.

When D12 had beef with Esham, they jumped him and his boys and it was real pu**y. It was like 60 against 10. Esham was so stomped out, dude suffers a fu*ked up eye, ear and other things.

Many people were signed to G Unit, but they got dropped because things wouldnt work out. IIRC, D-Tay was signed to G Unit and dude got his spinner robbed and he got dropped as fast as possible.

DMX has asthma and he listens to no rappers except for himself:
"I don't sit there listening to Pac. I heard him before, but I listen to no one but myself.. I knew I was going the right way. So what the **** I'ma be influenced by someone else for? I know where I'm going, man! I just listen to myself. That way I know whatever I say is totally original and ain't been influenced by nobody." - DMX, XXL, October 2003
Eminem had a crackhead rob his house and take silverwear and lunchmeat only. I would write it down but its too long. but later on the crackhead did steal more.

MF Grimm was shot several times and he was paralyzed. He regained some nerves and IIRC, he doesn't need to use the wheel chair anymore

talib kweli threatened this kid for leaking some of the beautiful struggle on a message board tellin the kid something like: I'll find you and you will be dealt wit

pras saved ODB from a pyrotechnics accident at the 98 mtv awards. later that year odb saved a woman from a car accident.

(supposedly) styles p, jadakiss and dmx went to the same highschool.

nature and cormega had real life beef, not just on wax. in a f!ght, cormega bit nature.

kanye west ghost produced "stir crazy" for eminem.

scott storch and mel man ghost produced still dre.

Tupac once attacked a rival rapper in the middle of a concert with a baseball bat.

At Royce Da 5'9"'s birthday party a few years ago, he and his group were attacked by Proof's former posse.

Insane Clown Posse was orginally a street gang called the Inner City Posse. The gang was destroyed but several of the original members started a well-know gang in Detroit.

Dead Prez were arrested several times only to find out each time there was no reason behind the arrest.

Blaze was once stabbed by Myzery.

Mars once beat a pregnant women nearly to death.

Some of Esham's albums are banned in Detroit.

Tupac and Yaki Kadafi are half-brothers.

Royce Da 5'9" squased his beef with Proof in a prision cell after both were arrested for a street f!ght.

Canibus and LL's beef started because Canibus said he liked LL's tattoo of a microphone on his arm, and that he might get one himself.LL took offens and freestyled his verse on 4,3,2,1 about the altercation.

EPMD recorded their debut in 3 hours

defari is a real high school teacher, and retired from rapping to become a full time teacher.

juelz santana has a lazy eye.

dj premier stole his first set of turntables.

LL was in the crowd of a kool moe dee show in michigan and challenged LL but LL declined and left.

jae mills use to work for american eagle.

havoc originally was going to rob prodigy before they met.

eazy-e had dinner with george bush.

most of state prop got their style from the major figgas.

snoop dogg went to school with cameron diaz.

2pac beat down one of the directors who directed menace 2 society after they shafted him for the lead role.

a group of armed lunatics broke into parish smith aka PMD's house to deliver a beat down, but beat down his friend instead because parish wasn't there. the goons said it was erick sermon who sent them. parish waited a while, recording an episode of the tonight show with epmd and das efx then went back to new york and filed charges against erick sermon, then they announced the breakup. erick sermon had a nervous break down then and was told to leave new york and take time off in atlanta by mc breed. eric sermon had 2 mill when he was in ny but by the time he left NY he had 2 grand and a credit card to his name.

eric sermon was messing with a girl one night when her man came home by surprise. fearing a confrontation, eric sermon jumped out of the four story window to avoid the boyfriend.


Gonna post more later...

NOTE: some are NOT confirmed, could be uttelry BS or the truth. I don't take credit for this, but props are appreaciated!

The Common/Ice Cube beef started over one single line in one of Common's songs. The line wasn't even directed towards the west coast negatively. There really was no big beef between the two rappers, which is why the beef simply ended after a sitdown talk.

Heads started referring to Nas as "nasty" and it became his nickname.

Busta Rhymes called the police when his ex-girlfriend?
came to his crib with a copy of keys and did 2000+ dollars in damage.she also pulled out busta's current girlfriends hair.

Prodigy has sickle cell anemia

Masta k!lla once punched out a reporter for NBC (just before Wu-Tang Forever dropped). The reporter asked him "when is you next album coming out?", and he replied "when you wake up" and knocked them out.

The Gza doesn't do solo performances.

ODB was once arrested for stealing a shoe (not a pair, just one shoe).

Joe Buddens brother pulled a gun on him over a sandwich

I slept with Christina Milian >_>

Soulja Slim was once signed to Cash Money records

If I remember correctly on a s3x skit on Biggy Smalls "Life After death" he was actually in the studio bangin some chick.

The Only Built 4 Cuban Linx title comes from the chains that Rae and Ghost use to rock.

The real name of OB4CL was "Only Built For Cuban Linx Ni**az",

eminem was robbed by someone who cooked an egg in his house and accidently left his coat. the robber came back to get the coat.

nas's full name is Nasir bin olu dara jones

Camron pulled a gun out on his doctors because he kept coming to the hospital and he was never told what was wrong with him (I need to do that one day).

Brotha Lynch always claims to be "half dead" because he was shot in the head, and they can't find the bullet.

During A Tribe Called Quest's peak, they were making a very decent amount of money from record sales, shows and appearences, but Q-Tip still had to sleep on his Mother's living room floor because he had no money after paying agent, manager and lawyer fees.

Necro, and his brother Ill Bill were raised by their Uncle Howie, who would shoot up heroin everynight and pass out in front of them.

It only cost Benefit $27.00 to make his (first and only) album. and he got $5,000 for winning a Napster contest ran by Chuck D.

Cage made his first album "Movies For The Blind" while working at Burger King, high on PCP.

MCA from The Beastie Boys had a fling with Madonna.

Violent J of ICP used to **** his pants quite often during school, then would be eventually chased around campus with his soiled underwear by bullies.

The Common/Ice Cube beef started over one single line in one of Common's songs. The line wasn't even directed towards the west coast negatively. There really was no big beef between the two rappers, which is why the beef simply ended after a sitdown talk.

50 cent put on a restraining order on all of murder inc after he was stabbed in the studio by Black Child.



That's enough for now...got some more saved on my comp, which I'll post tomorrow or later.

Bushwick Bill's girl shot him in his head, popping his one eye while she was on some drugs. Bushwick Bill survived and that's the reason why he has that eyepatch.
Bushwick Bill does also live in a trailor and travels around the country.

i thought the story was attempted suicide

Yeah, but the A & R maybe didn't see the potential in 'em and thought they were just some crappy dudes. So the A & R turned them down and when someone else signed them and they blew up, the dude who fu*ked up got fired.

And just imagine Kid Rock on Bad Boy lol..one album and dude would be 112'd, Loon'd, Da Band'd...and so on.

Kanye West dissed Ras Kass. Kanye said in a German Rap magazine that Ras is a damn good lyricist, but he has sh*tty beats and doesn't sell good.

I forgot the name of that Geto Boys album, but it showed Bushwick Bill laying on an operation table covered with blood. People said they shot that picture then that broad shot him, but that is NOT true!
They reacted that hospital scene.

Jermaine Dupri wrote all of Bow Wow's songs, and still does.

Nas and Cornmega didn't get along because of Cornmega fronting about what he does in the hood.

The Def Squad was one of the first groups to be signed to Def Jam Records.

Eminem isn't orginally from the rough part of Detriot as orginally protrayed in 8mile. He traveled their by choice to rap.

P.diddy dislikes Styles P, and Jadakiss. Which is why, most of the time Sheek Louch begins a D Block track. P.diddy loves his style.

Joe Budden has a small beef with Jay-Z. But it never escalated.

People didn't know who 50 cent was even after "How to rob" came out. Jay Z put his name out inadvertandly at summer jam when he dissed 50 on "It's Hott".

Will Smith doesn't curse in his raps as a promise he made to his late grandma. Who found his first rhyme book filled with lyrics containing curses and the normal gangsta stuff.

One of the reasons Cam'ron hates Mase is because Mase was orginally gonna put him on until he went to atlanta to find god.

Out of all of State Property. The Young Gunz are from the roughest part of philly.

Lil Jon used to work on So-So Def.

Dr. Dre started off by producing for a boy band.

Suge Knight went to college on a football scholarship.

Lil Scrappy has been beaten up in the club and around Atlanta many times. Most of the time by women. ( I don't know what 50 sees in him...)

More coming by tomorrow..kinda late here and I still have to study something.


Oh, and Domination And Bang 'Em Smurf are still talking about 50 Cent..I got no clue what's right and what's not...I'm trying to find that magazine where they dissed him heavily.

T.I. didn't start off trap. He isn't from bankhead. Back in high school, he was just one of those kids that "does things just to be bad". He stratted selling drugs by choice.

Outkast met one day in high school when they both noticed the other also had a very weird haircut.

Keith Murray owns one of OJ Simpsons actual buffolo bills jersey. He recived it as a gift after he got out of jail.

Joe Budden used to be severely addicted to crack and heroin.

Fat Joe orginally helped put Big L on.

d'angelo was suppose to sing on break you off, but instead they got ????? since d'angelo had some problems.

royce was suppose to be on explosive, but his manager had some issue with ghostwriting and royce was pulled out.

half of illmatic was nas' demo tape.

i'm just a villian was suppose to be the 11th track on illmatic.

aalyiah pulled out of the you won't see me tonight because of the contraversy over hate me now.

hype williams once said he won't even listen to you if your video budget is under a million bucks.

2pac is the only artist to have a number one album while in prision.

run dmc had the first gold, platnium and multiplatnium rap records.

beastie boys were the first act to debut at #1.

the breaks by kurtis blow was the first gold rap single.

kanye west was originally going to sign to capitol records.

busta rhymes and q-tip demand a bucket of kfc and condoms where they preform.

del ghostwrote jackin for beats and no vasiline.

suge was mad about the crip refrences in "ain't no fun" so he made warren g change his line to "in my chevy 6-4, red to be exact!"

BDK wrote most of biz markie's album "going off" and wrote roxanne shante's diss to BDP "have a nice day".

(rumor) when suge knight initially confronted vanilla ice it was at a resturant where suge sat across from nilla mean mugging him giving him bad signals. then, shook as hell, vanilla ice ran out the place screaming "HELP ME! THE BLOODS AND CRIPS ARE AFTER ME!"

vanilla ice's "to the x-treme" is the highest selling rap album of all time.

hammer was the first rapper to have an album 10x platnium.

cypress hill was the first latino rap group to go platnium.

outkast was originally going to call themselves 2 shades deep.

cee-lo was in the original outkast but backed out.

player's ball was originally a christmas song complete with jingle bells and **** but it was changed because la face thought it was hot enough for another version.

dj kay slay was in style wars by his tagging name DEZ.

Yeah, the Lil Flip and Paul Wall thing is pretty funny.

i read that story in a magazine today.

See, Paul Wall was on Flips nuts all the time, Flip gave him one deal. Wall was allowed to chop and screw one album and Paul Wall was on Flips nuts.
So when Flip got shot, Paul Wall tatted a pic of Flip on his right arm..that was his way off showing some love and respect. Flip states this as "Mad homo and such gay sh*t".
See, Wall also fu*ked with Flips enemy TI...which was kinda disrespectful, since he has Flip tatted on him. He smells in that dudes face at the same time he has something personal of Flip on his body. Flip doesn't hate Wall for that...but he thinks dude is straight homo.
