The ticking sound you hear on the intro of shook ones pt2 is the start of a stove. Havoc produced the entire track in his kitchen.

Prodigy's verse for LA,LA is actually in Nas's Live n*gga Rap

GFK used too wear mask due to having warrants.

GFK cheked himself into a hospital for what he thought was an STD, due to years of having unprotected s3x. But it turned out he was a diabetic.

Mariah Carey's first husband used too get jealous she hung around with the likes of puffy & mase.

Puffy actually wasn't to keen on working with Mariah when he first met her, because he felt she was wack.

Ice T's daughter was pulled out of school by the FBI, when he released cop k!ller.

Dame Dash actually got N.O.R.E a bigger budget, before he signed to Roc-A-Feller, after he cursed out Kevin Lies & saw what N.O.R.E was getting compared to everyone's at the label.

Prodigy & his crew waited for dame outside his building, a few days after Jay did his summer jam. He kept telling dame to come downstairs but he kept sending his a.ssistant.

Havoc went to N.O.R.E birthday party a few years ago while he was signed to g-unit....fat joe just happened to be there as well.

Alchemist used too be in a rap group called the whooligans

Big Pun was the one who convinced Tony Sunshine, to sing some of lyrics for "100%" in Spanish.

The trademark sound of baby laughter, in timberland's produced older tracks, is the sound of aaliyah from when she was a baby.

Irv Gotti produce ''Used Too Be My Dog" for DMX but he had no clue, he was gonna diss ja-rule.

Ja-Rule purposely grew his braids to avoid DMX comparison.

Jay-Z charged 750k for his song on the blue streak sound track.

No one at Def Jam was convinced DMX was a star. His barking & growling turned everyone off. And his video for ''get @ me dog" pissed off Tina Davis (a rep for the label) She cursed out irv for wasting the budget.

Dame Dash wasn't keen on DMX either. When he first saw him perform irv, lyor & him were going in lyor's car. For x's whole performance lyor was stone faced. When it was the 3 of them irv & lyor reacted in excitement...Dame replies

Ya'll think that's hot? Nobody wants to hear that. n*ggas wanna be like Jay. That n*gga sounds depressed.
Nas wasn't too fond of Pharrell when N.O.R.E introduced him. Because his shirt was too tight.

L.E.S. & Nas wrote/produced "Welcome To Miami"

That song is also the theme for miami.

Jermaine Dupri was so aww struck by Biggie & Jay-Z not writing their lyrics, he officially stopped writing his lyrics after money ain't a thing.

Money Ain't A Thing was also produced at jermanie's mother house.

50 has a thyroid condition hence why he puts on weight fast.

JD had the chance to sign ludacris & nelly.

Nas passed on We Gonna Make It & Alchemist was actually afraid to play the beat for DJ Premier. Because he used a clap instead of snare.

DMX actually performed for Lyor with his jaw wired shut prior to his offcial signing. In fact, he rapped so intensely & agressively during the freestyle the wires holding his jaw became unraveled by the time he was done.

RZA actually saved method man's life prior to their fame. RZA saw him going to the weed spot & begged him to come lay down a verse. Method Man, at the time, wasn't taking music serious. Eventually he convinced him to come along. That same night method man went to the same weed spot & heard someone he was close with k!lled.

Ja-Rule & Irv got a Tupac Sample from Suge Knight for free.

Fat Joe forced Big Pun to do his tounge twist rap in the deep cover.

B -REAL & Cypress Hill are actually Cuban, not Mexican.

2Chaniz owns homes in Atlanta & had a basketball scholarship. He graduated with a 4.0 GPA.

E40 got his nick name from chugging 40 oz & attended college for a year.

Gucci Mane was born in Alabama, he eventually moved to Atlanta in his youth.

Prince actually helped Havoc produced a record, for mobb deep.

Fat Joe had the chance to sign Eminem 6x.

Eminem & Kanye's favorite rapper is Mase.

Eminem is on the Lean Back remix because he heard mase verse.

Dr.Dre thought em was black when he first heard him rap on a mixtape.

Ice-T got 26k for his role in New Jack City. He finally got a million in the early 2000's for a movie that never came out.

Capone N Noreaga did a photoshoot with vibe once & wasn't aware of prop guns. They brought their own and it ended up going during the shoot.

Michael Jackson's favorite rapper was Biggie & was trying to work with before he died. He got his wish with his final studio album Invincible, on the song Unbreakable.

Me & Mr.Jones was written about Nas by Amy Winehouse. She openly admitted to having a crush on him & even mentions his daughter name in the song. They even share the same birthday.

Who Shot Ya was originally supposed to be an intro on Mary J. Bliege's Share My World. And feature Biggie, LL & Keith Murry. But the label felt the track was too hard. But biggie himself loved the loved beat, so he scrapped off Keith & LL and added a 2nd Verse.

LL' s Doing It was originally ment for biggie. He sat on the beat for awhile & forgot about it until Puffy called him asking for it back.

Quiet Storm was originally for Prodigy's HNIC & was an old beat havoc left alone. Chris Lighty, along with havoc heard it & thought they should use the song as a single.

The first time alchemist played beats for havoc & prodigy, they both coincidentally picked "The Realest" When one of them was with alchemist.

Pharrell ghost produced for teddy role.

The first time DJ envy met nas, he ran up to him out of excitement. Only to find out nas had a gun on at the time & proceeded to curse him out for running up to him.

Snoop actually saved nas from being shot when they first met. Nas was visiting LA & happened to be wearing red in a predominantly crip area. Nas saw snoop, hopped out a & ran over to him. Instinctively, snoop's people started reaching. But he had to explain to them it's only nas.

Cormega-I've heard for YEARS this cat has sh*t on lock in some places in brooklyn and queens

Ghostface & Cappadonna- Reason ghostface wore a mask in the early days is because he was wanted for robbery when the wu 1st blew up, Cappadonna owned some drug houses here on Staten island for a little while after he got money, i dont know if they're still in business

Fat Joe- i dont know any real stories but i hear things

Freestyling was synonymous with freeform, it didn't originally mean "off the top".

Rappers during Jay z era would recite rhymes without counting bars and battling consisted of elaborately rapping about how flashy or bad you were not tearing down your opponent

Paula Patton used too help Robin write songs. She went by "max hatter" due to her middle name being maxine & max sounding like a guy's name.

The night biggie died shaq & him had the chance to switch cars.

Ms. Jackson is was actually an apology to Erykah Badu & her Mother.

The Dungeon Family used too do cardio together, so they wouldn't run out of breath during performances.

Musiq has a lazy eye, due to being stabbed in his eye as a child. Hence forth the reason why, he always wears glasses.

Lapdance by N.E.R.D was produce for nas. But pharrell never had the chance to give it to him.

Big Pun's verse for banned from TV was accidentally laid down, because during the recording session he snuck in & laid a verse. But N.O.R.E liked it so much he decided to keep it.

The beat for that song is actually looped. Because all the artist who heard it, wouldn't let the original part finish. So swizz just looped it.

Nature also wrote his verse in less than 5 mintues.

The vocals you hear for "Jigga, My n*gga'' on the chorus are actually done by Eve.

Swizz is originally from Atlanta.

Sticky Fingaz & Freddo Star come African American & Asian backgrounds.

Miguel is black & Mexican.

DMX wasn't fond of RR anthem when he first heard it.

During the No Way Out Tour Jadakiss developed gambling habit. It got so bad, when the biggie tribute came on, he would rush out of dice game to lay his verse only end up falling on stage during the process.

Sheek & Styles had to talk jada out of going down to hot 97 & shooting up the place. While beans & state property was on air dissing them. He claims that's maddest he's ever been, to the point where he was crying.

About Big Pun supposedly hitting Jay-Z over the head with a bottle..

So here's some backstory, I'm from Boston but my fam is originally from the Bronx and I have an uncle who still lived out there while I was growing up so I used to go to his crib on Fox Ave in the South Bx every year from 99-07. In 01' or 02' I remember leaving the crib with my uncle to go to the movies or some sh*t and there was this Puerto Rican dude just kinda posted on the block and my Unc for some reason was mad excited to introduce me to him, so he introduces me and tells me how this dude used to run with Pun & Joe & the rest of Terror Squad but as soon as we walk away my Unc tells me "that niqqa right there smashed a Cristal bottle over Jay-Z's head in the club, left him bloody in VIP." I was like 11 years old so I was like oh sh*t for real? My Unc confirmed and I never thought that this knowledge would be useful but here I am lol.

So basically, I'm not sure Big Pun did it himself or the niqqa I met in 02' did it, either way it seems like Jigga got roughed up by some Rican niqqas from the Bronx.

Thought the story went it was Lance "Un" Riveria?

sommore


-Rza and k!llah Sin and another fam member went to see 50 perform after How To Rob and 50 got wind of them being there and dipped backstage and didn't perform, I have heard this one several times.

-Redman Smacked Prodigy around the time Hell On Earth was out b/c he was dissing Keith and Def Squad.

-A member of Wu got jumped at Suge's club in Las Vegas and Pac didn't like the way it went down and told Suge to squash the beef and he agreed outta respect.

*****EDIT*****I thought it was keith that snuffed P out in front of his people at the Tunnel.(shrugs)

-When Nas came to Boston around 94/95 somebody in RSO Crew (possibly Benzino) walked up to Nas and sonned him by knocking his baseball cap off of his head.

-Freddie Foxxx went to Landspeed records like 200 deep in order to get the money they owed him.

-Kool Herc was shot around 78 or something.

-Grandmaster Caz wrote Rappers Delight.

-Pharrel use to carry records around for Teddy Riley.

-Benzino forced Mays to give him part ownership of the source. There are legends of Benzino and his people tying up Mays in his own closet.

-Benzino actually one of the main reasons why Boston had such a small homicide rate in the late 90's, the Feds put UC's on every block and had a lot crazy ish going on so Benzino got a lot of the heads of the bigger gangs together to unite so that not everyone get locked up. That saw the murder lessen and the Boston police taken credit for "doing away with crime in a big city".

-Freddie Foxxx did put Benzino in check on tour with the Flava Unit. Benzino was acting up and Foxxx pulled something out.

-The entire city of Boston was blacklisted back in the day by the industry due to crowds and Boston rappers and thugs attending shows just to cause problems. Every rapper from Audio Two to Biggie had either a bottle smashed across their head on stage or their show cancelled due to a shooting. To this day very few rappers do shows in the Boston hoods because of it.

-MF Grimm was not only suppose to be on Live at the BBQ, but his joint with Kool G Rap or 4, 5, 6 was suppose to be the lead single but he was arrested again and G Rap went with the joint with Nas.

-Grimm also admitted that he came in third at the World Supremecy battle in 93, losing to SuperNat who won but that he was also involved in a shooting earlier in the day.

-Mf Grimm was held on trial for the murder of a cop.

-Everyone in CashMoney has done at least 2 years in prison I believe.

-A boston beatboxer by the name of A-Train is said to have beaten BizMarkie, Dana Dane, and K-solo in a battle back in 88.

-Jay-z was told by Scarface to change Reasonable Doubt because he actually named names of dealers.

-Fat Joe gave Guru a place to live for awhile.

-Guru didnt leave boston in the best of terms which is why the early of stages of his carrear boston did not play a big part. Gang Starr originally started in Boston and had a few emcees in it. Guru left for NY and took the name without people knowing.

-Rakim was still in high school when paid in full dropped.

-JT the bigga Figga returned Nas chain to him when it got stolen in cali

-suge beating the sh*t out of snoop's/ dre homies cause they were using that phone that harry o had an exclusive phone line... and the dudes saying saying to suge "hey we roll wit dr. dre"! first sign of dre holding no weight

-LL Cool J was cool with Alpo and many other rappers had drug ties then.

-Tupac did have some of his enemies k!lled.

-Eazy-E was from a very middle class family so was Ice cube they weren't thugs

-Some people in death Row got r*ped in the building.

-Suge doesnt like game because he expose some of death Row business (stuff about Harry-O) and because he is not really blood.

-The reason Sheek wasn't around much after LOX split from Bad boy cause he was clearing up cases he had.

-The real reason Mase left hip hop & Harlem is because of heavy extortion, not an epiphany from god
Who did pac have k!lled apart from stretch?

Havoc & his crew had intentions on jumping prodigy when they first met him. But that plan was scarpped after prodigy, helped havoc in a f!ght after school. And from there is how their bond started.

Chris Lighty used too scream at Qtip, for always tweaking tribe albums at the kast minute.

RZA laid out a 5 year plan for all members of the wutang clan in which he promised all them success, if he had control.

RZA purposely pushed method man to be the first to drop. He had each member labeled with an appeal, and meth was the heartthrob.

Despite their a.ssociations with russell, RUN DMC was never signed to Def Jam.

Manio is cousin's with Huggy Bear aka Dupree, from the wayns brothers.

Schoolboy Q was born in Germany.

Tommy Hilfiger personally approached Raekwon himself and asked him to model.
