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 s*x. 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*sistant.

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”

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 sh*t 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/killers 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"

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.

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

Artists who i heard were pus*y, most robbed more than twice
Busta Rymes
jazze phae
Dr. Dre
Shyheim from the wu
Mase(to the 20th power) got yapped for his chain at a knick game
Jermaine Dupri
camron(still my man tho)
stephon marbury got his chain yapped while takin a nap in his car in NY
Allen iverson's been robbed many times
i hear young buck did get his gunit chain yapped in chicago
DMX, i heard its all a front for image
of course Ja Rule and Irv, but i heard irv's brother holds massive weight
50's hood but i hear he has NO thorough backup
Snoop lost his juice, but is backed by the crips only because he makes songs to crip to.
You're obviously a suburb weirdo or unimaginably stupid if you believe this. We ALL know Puff had ties to the Black Mafia Family and HE was the one bussing in that club that night. Secondly, getting robbed NEVER equates to being pus*y. You BX gangstas obviously never grew up in the hood. I know some of the most gangsta n*ggas in the world that were robbed and did nothing about it. One, ANYbody can get caught slipping. Secondly, sometimes the consequences from the retaliation aint worth it and is bad for business. fu*k I look like k*lling a n*gga over a 30k chain when I'm worth 20 million? You n*ggas live in fantasy gangland.....

Dude, i'm not about to do this. You want your props then by all means, but don't sit up here & tell me what he told me himself. Met him for a meet & greet for the first shock value album in NY and he told me himself he used her cooing laughter for samples. Really not trying to make a spectacle of this.
There’s a video of him saying he got off a sample CD tho

It’s on YouTube somewhere

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 sh*t broke my heart to hear that. A classic record with a solid beat & he won't see not one cent from. Super foul.

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.

Busta Rhymes purposely went last on features in the beginning of his career, because he didn't know how to do a full song yet.

Puffy actually suggested busta tone down his energy for his tracks & the result was..put your hands where my eyes can see.

ja rule was a jahovas witness, born in a black neighborhood but moved to a white suburb as a kid. was never a thug. did throw it down with 50 cent though, 50 snuffed him and he actually fought back.

dmx, far as i know a real dude. when he'd come to chicago he'd smoke trees with peeps from cabrini and chill on north ave. one of his best friends was a latin king leader.

nelly,never a thug,never thought he tried to come off as one till i saw beef 3 ( notice around the time of filming beef everyone becomes gangster outta nowhere lol)

young jeezy hustled, but isnt and never was bmf. more than likely they just backed him financially to get in the game.

some of the beef sh*t is fake and put on. if you watch closely in beef 3 you'll see humpty giving t.i. props, later on you see t.i. rolling off in a hummer and you see humpties and a camera mans reflection against the hummer.

ludacris always claims atl, but lived in champaign,illinois till he was 16.

about young buck getting robbed in nashville? dont know, but he's lied about it before, among other things.

50 cents street name before he got signed was "boo boo"

lloyd banks was never a hustler or a thug, he was one of those stay in the house kids.

tony yayo was in pc the entire time he was locked up, they used to call him something like 'afraid to walk the yard bernard"

eazy e was a gimmick, and had no shame in it. was never a crip or kingpin.

ice cube lived in the white burbs all his life,never a crip.

dj quik was a real blood with street cred

big fase 100 has been knocked out more than a couple times, usually by another blood.

triple og t rodgers one of the pioneers was clowning big fase ( among others) on youtube ( funny video).

t rodgers appears in the movie "colors", he was the guy pacman hit and arrested.

spider loc contradicts and exaggerates sh*t, especially on g unit rivals, his street cred in la, ect..he admitted that game(before game got signed) hooked him up with bullets cause nobody else had any,lol.(if youre crippin like you claim, why you got to call a blood to get some sh*t?)some say he used to be a blood. also known for blocking people that challenge him on his website.

more to come.....

more to come........
