fans and haters alike.
Look no farther than Bow Wows Top 5 Dead or Alive.
The Notorious B.I. G
When you mention Hip-Hop you think of Big. For a guy to have only
two albums and be put at the place he is should only be looked at as
amazing. He is undeniable, especially as a lyricist.
Hes just a dope lyricist. He is someone that I have just always
respected as an MC. Hes someone I feel gets looked over or
overshadowed. He is one of New Yorks finest.
LL Cool J
He is my idol. Just period. I see a lot of similarities between his
career and my career. We both have a strong female fan base. Hes
still here. Im still here. He does movies. I do movies. He got
ridiculed a lot for doing girl records but then he came hard when he
dropped Im Bad. I feel like Fresh Azimiz is my Im Bad.
What a lot of people dont understand is I grew up in HipHop. I feel
like Im the son or the baby brother of HipHop. I feel like that
because I got into the game so early. I was young and around Death
Row. People talk about Tupac I was around Pac back in the day. When
he was doing the Me Against the World album I actually witnessed him
in the booth. I like him for his realness. You can feel his passion
in the music. He was motivated and he truly cared about the world.
Hes always been one of my favorites because of his lyrical ability
and the way he put words together. I redid his I Got It Made for a
mixtape. I have always had a female fan base so I like him because he
had that but was still respected as a lyricist. He gained respect but
was also a dope lyricist.
