How many of y’all are lining up to copp the ‘hood DVD about the rise and fall of Junior Mafia. In my opinion there really isn’t a rise and fall of J.M., there is just the falling part. B.I.G. was one of those people who was so infinitely charismatic that when he was removed from the equation the center fell apart. He was the glue to a bunch of pieces that could never fit together. There’s really no other way to spin this shit. Besides what haven’t we seen already from Puff’s hands? You know if Diddy had some shit on B.I.G. that he could monetize he would have liquidated that shit already. I just hope niggas don’t get on no crazy shit and exhume B.I.G.’s casket so niggas can view him and touch him. Crazy shit like that happens in Europe.
Junior Mafia? Who the fuck cares?!? But then I started to think… Which rap groups with a centerpiece female rapper really did their thing. Who remembers that group with Sweet T? Exactly, me neither. There was UTFO with the Real Roxanne, but them niggas was like a thousand years ago or some shit. Your homey Noz would know.
There was the Juice Crew who had Roxanne Shante as their female vocalist. Roxanne Shante kept it pretty gully too plus she had that ‘hood rat voice that is just a few octaves away from a screech. She always seemed like one of those chicks that would put Vaseline on her face, pull off her earrings and fight a dude.
Public Enemy was fucking with Sistah Souljah for a minute and the Jungle Brothers/Native Tongue camps were semi-linked up with Latifah until she went all Hollywood on they asses.
I always like Isis a/k/a Lin Que with the X-Clan.
YoYo was kind of down with the Lench Mob, but how many of them dudes can you name?
Correct me if I’m wrong, but the Wu has never had a chick rhyme from within their 36 chambers.
Lil’ Kim is more hardbody than the entire Junior Mafia clique. She put that sentence for perjury on her back and handled it with no crying out for her mommy.
Foxy in the Firm was *yawwwn* when she wasn’t spitting rhymes about impossible mathematics.
Vita and the Murderers – Never even heard of ‘ya
I could run down almost every group that had a female in their ranks and none of them would come close to the Fugees. They need to make a DVD or a reality series about the breakup of the Fugees and why Lauryn Hill so damn crazy. That would be an interesting flick to watch. The Fugees had it all. They were like the Black Eyed Peas, except they had talent, well, Lauryn and Clef had talent. Junior Mafia never even got started. I suppose this is a way to sell some archival footage of Notorious B.I.G. They should have at least dropped this joint around the time of B.I.G.’s born day in May. Hip-Hop continues to suffer from poor marketing.
