The Name Game

With more names than a Spanish birth certificate, rappers hold the title for having the most AKA’s in the entertainment industry. Whether influenced by religion, politics, history, films, comics or of course fellow musicians, it can be hard to keep up with all of their nicknames.  See if you can match the alias with their rightful owner.

      Dude you need to expand your mind past I285. I bet if they threw Mr Thanksgiving, Lefleaur, or Possum Jenkins on there you’ll be right on it.

      But on another note WTF is the blogger doing puzzles for? This ain’t quiztime, I thought this was gonna be a discussion about aliases. SMH

    • BGZ

      More familiar with Max B and T-Pain than with Big L and Kool Keith? Tsk, tsk, tsk.

      (Didn’t Styles changed from Pinero to PaNiro when he heard that Miguel was gay?)

    “Coming this friday, XXL presents Hip Hop Crossword”

    • RiZob

      “BURNNNNNNNN!!!!!!” lol classic….

      • Tony Grand$

        Oh shit! Remember the crossword puzzle in The Source back in the day? Lmao!

        & lol @ El Tico (as usual). Hell, why don’t you start the discussion then……

        • El Tico Loco

          That’s a lame ass topic man, discuss what? I’m so and so I’m this I’m that? (word to KRS) cuz the post is wick wick wack. Guess matching is all you can do with that topic, or try to figure out who has the most aliases.

        • Tony Grand$

          Oh well, it was worth a shot………

        • Arcey

          @ Tony G’$: Yeah I remember them!!! that was back in 1999… shit, I still have issues from 1994 ’til ’97, when they sold their souls to advertising (I do understand that any business is about making money)& had Puffy all by himself on the cover!

          let me try to start a topic: What’s your most memorable XXL/The Source/Vibes/Blaze/Scratch/Rap Pages/(Word Up?)magazine moment? for example XXL’s classic albums’ making-of’s articles – ya’ll know, things of that nature…

        • Tony Grand$

          Source memory……Reginald C. Dennis. I’d read his section of remarks/comments before anything else. Hated when he stopped writing for them. Oh, & of course the crosswords!

          Vibe memory…….Kevin Powell. I used to think that dude was the illest writer since Edgar Allan Poe.

  • $ykotic

    Is this a throwaway blog?

    I used to do those crosswords on the A train!

    • DV8

      LMAO yeah that little quiz is mad easy. It would have been a little more challenging if you had asked for government names.
