I could be wrong on some of these, but I wanted to pay respect to the G in my way!
Today is March 9 aka Biggie Day. I have a few rumors.
Did you ever hear about the time where Biggie allegedly kidnapped one of the members of Boot Camp Click? Back in those days, there was a lot of beef with the rappers of the day, even in NYC. If memory serves me right, they did a video that dissed B.I.G. and he didn’t like it. It wasn’t pretty but it ended there, from what I heard.
There was also a “beef” with Wu Tang. I’m not really sure where it came from though, because Biggie worked with both Meth and RZA. But, Raekwon called him out at one point, particularly over the album cover if I am not mistaken. There was a notion that it was too close to Nas’ Illmatic album cover. History was made musically though.
Biggie didn’t want to do any of the R&B songs and smooth records that made him a huge star. That was all Diddy and Biggie went along with it. Believe it or not, Ma$e was the same way. Biggie reportedly wanted his first single to be “Machine Gun Funk.” Biggie was about that life.’
Biggie’s mother is reportedly hoping to find a break in the murder case. Rumor has it, she’s been informed of new information that may lead to the murderer.
Biggie was a huge ghost writer of R&B acts in the 90s. Back then, ghost writers didn’t talk about it. Rumor has it, Jay-Z saw how much money Biggie made of ghost writing and started doing it himself.
Biggie starred selling drugs AFTER he was signed to Bad Boy. He was allegedly somewhere down in B-more and Diddy screamed on him and made him come back.
Last of all, I was told by one of the editors that Biggie still gets mail at his old residence back in Brooklyn. I wonder how that works for the people that live there now.
Oh. That little kid in the pic up top isn’t Biggie. Share your Biggie folklore and rumors!
Rest in Paradise, BIG!
