Hip Hop facts and events most ya'll don't know about

this part of the thread was taken from an old thread @ sohh, i read it a long time ago & this sh1t was so interesting, i had to add it to my favorites :D

if menacesquad is on here, major props

Some of these are rumors, and some are very true

-LL Cool J and Kool Moe Dee came to blows one night backstage.

-Freddie Foxxx put a gun in Benzino's mouth on the Flavor Unit tour bus, because Benzino would not stop talking **** about what a thug he was

-"The bridge is over" was a Marley Marl beat that Krs One and Scott La Rock found in a studio.

-2pac was robbed and shot by some of Supreme's boys.

-"I got a story to tell" was vaguelly based on a real life incident Biggie had when he was slipping pipe to John Starks' woman.

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

-Showbiz has almost been sent upstate for attempted murder twice.

-Big Pun hit Jay Z over the head with a bottle in a club.

-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".

-Biz Markie produced most of EPMD's first album.

-Ghostface, Superb and their team beat down and robbed 50 Cent and Tony Yayo after 50's dis tracks.

-Johnny Juice did all Terminator X's cuts on the Public Enemy albums.

Kool Keith met Godfather Don outside some industry event that both of them weren't allowed entry to. They snuck in through a back window and then hung out for the next month or so recording the 'Don produced tracks on "the 4 horsemen" and, of course, all the classic Cenobites tracks.

-Just Ice was a prime suspect in a murder case.

-Just Ice turned up in Queens on Poet's block after the two Rockwell Noel & The Poet tracks dissing Krs One, Red Alert and Ms. Melodie with a shotgun and waited for Poet to come out. Needless to say, Poet stayed in the crib that day.

-DJ Ready Red was kicked out of Geto Boys and shafted by J. Prince because of his lack of melanin.

-Alpo, Fritz, the original 50 Cent from Ft Greene and various other notorious hustlers/ki1lers from the legendary Paid In Full Posse were in the crew shots on "paid in full" and "follow the leader".

-Rakim recorded a dis cut aimed at 'Kane for "let the rhythm hit 'em" and had a verse on the title track itself aimed at him. 'Kane heard about this and called Rakim to squash it and Rakim went on to scrap the track and remove the verse.

-Eric B. did security for Mike Tyson throughout much of the 90's.

-Diamond D and his old late 80's group Ultimate Force with Master Rob recorded a full album with Jazzy Jay which has never been heard.

-A young Fat Joe and his boys Tony Montana(R.I.P) and Charlie Rock L.D were one of the top two crack crews in the Bronx in the mid 80's and bringing in thousands of $$$$ per day.

-Q Tip got fuked up so bad by one of the members of Wrexx N Effect that he lost partial sight in one of his eyes. ****EDIT***^^^^^very true^^^^^

-Nas came incredibly close to being on the Large Pro produced Kool G Rap, Xtra P, Freddie Foxxx and Ant posse cut "money in the bank" as he was always hangin' around Eric B.'s studio but had gone to pick up some weed with a chick so they let the Ant kid on there instead.

- Main Source (sans Large Pro) ran up in the Wild Pitch offices with machetes looking to behe@d MC Serch (then working as an A&R for the label) after a West Coast promotional tour went ****ty. MC Serch got wind that they were coming and escaped by crawling over the partial walls for his office and jetting out the back door.

- Grimm was supposed to be on "Live at the Barbecue" but he was arrested on the way to the studio.
"Ya'll don't write, you pay for airplays and rhymes of the month
A risin' star, I don't respect you cuz I do my own stunts
The rap world is run by morons, dudes who don't get it
that's why I simplify and cater to the dimwitted"

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 n1gga 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 ki1ler.

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 assistant.

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.
That’s not Aaliyah that’s a sample.... that just made me question ur other “facts”

-I said this in another thread and RIP to DMX but he got ran out of an old (now gentrified) Toronto project housing area called Regent Park for not showing love and including the locals in the scenes when they filmed "Exit Wounds".

-Drake apparently got robbed for his j3wels in Toronto around the start of his mainstream career/So Far Gone days as numerous disgruntled Toronto rappers (Dre Barrs) said Drake was a snitch for reporting this to the police, which is stupid as Drake is not a street rapper and has more to lose if he didn't.

-Insane Clown Posse used to call themselves Inner City Posse as their rap duo name. Inner City Posse was a set/gang in Detroit. However, the labels didn't want to promote gang/turf politics so using the same acronym, they changed it to Insane Clown Posse. Ironically, their "Juggalo" gimmick took on a life of its own and has now been classified as a gang. I heard this as I briefly lived in Windsor right across from Detroit and a lot of Detroit people told me that when discussing the music scene.

-Ja Rule was been banned from certain clubs in Toronto that closed down ages ago for getting into fights during the height of the G-Unit/Inc. beef as other club patrons were dissing Ja nonstop due to his 50 beef.

-Krayzie Bone and Layzie Bone were throwing subliminal disses at each other on the track, can't give it up.

-In an old XXL magazine, according to Ja and Irv, Benzino drove 50 Cent to the hospital after Fif got jumped by the Inc.

Kool G Rap left New York for Arizona

Superhead noted that she met G rap in Arizona as a stripper

They developed a relationship but
Says he was very evasive as to why he left New York to come to Arizona

The truth of the matter G rap was running from an alledged pursuit by NYC drug dealer Supreme Magnetic who accused him of snitching on him

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 n1gga'' 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.

George Clinton was also on a heavy crack binge when he recorded that track according to him.
Yup! I watched the mike judge show about it. That sh1t broke my heart to hear that. A classic record with a solid beat & he won't see not one cent from. Super foul.

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.

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. n1ggas wanna be like Jay. That n1gga 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 ki1led.

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

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 sh1t by an artist called "biggie smalls" and copped it thinking it was some new BIG sh1t, there was no picture on the cover. I got home and listened to it like wtf is this.

Eazy's artist Kid Frost from his group the Brownside has clarified his death better than anyone I can think. He said that right before Eazy got sick they were touring n the bus got into a accident. Apparently the label or somebody around him had him go to acupuncture for his injuries. Frost says a girl he knew real well worked at the offices and told him about Eazy coming in n that right after the sessions he had were complete is when he initially started getting n sick. sh*t is on YouTube I believe it's a vlad interview he says this in.
