LL got robbed in LQ Bobby Brown told the story on questlove podcast
Did not know, I'll check for it
just some context to this thread though
Eric B ran with THE WILDEST bunch of NY dudes from that era.......literally the Dream Team of street dudes
people already know who they are pictured and not pictured
BUT.....that bat you saw Eric B carrying around in videos wasn't a prop. He carried it around for anybody that thought of sticking him up or snatching his chains
If anybody was good in the streets back then, it would have been Eric B & Rakim, but wolves are going to wolf.
No shame for any of these stories of rappers getting got, it happened a lot more often than you think. Rappers back then were eating from performing at hole in the wall small venues in the hood.
My cousin, who used to run the streets told me a story that showed just how throrough the Paid In Full crew were.
There was a spot called Sensations in downtown Newark that used to have rappers come through and perform. Several rappers got touched/robbed leaving the venue.
When Rakim was scheduled to perform that night....they pulled up in a tour bus FULL of goons , for a show that was gonna be maybe a thousand dollars payment. Playing NO games.
i just heard a King Sun album for the first time and he was def a 100% Rakim clone...vocal tone, flow, lyrics...he was Rakim top to bottom...but ive also heard other music he did that sounded nothing like that...he just used his influence to find his own voice.
you think so? hmmm... the first time i heard hey love i never thought of ra at all
but you're not alone. hella people say the same thing you say
you could damn near convince someone that this was an unreleased Eric B & Rakim record
I'm not surprised by LL getting robbed. He was allegedly beaten up and had his chain snatch at the World on wheels skating ring in LA. Ice T first wife Darlene talked about this on her show with Corey Holcomb. I also remember Maino sneak dissing Busta Rhmes on one of those early 2000's DVD about rappers getting robbed in Brooklyn. Maino had recently fought off to would be robbers at gun point in a sneaker store. I think he said Im not going out like Busta are something.
Big daddy kane breh? Tha lover of all lovers? They musta robbed him of some game cuz they ass was lame no p*ssy gettin ass muafuccas
Bobby brown shouldn’t be talking about anyone getting robbed especially since he got actully kidnapped by preacher crew and Whitney Houston had to pay them 400 gs all down to Bobby not paying some drug dealer which preacher turned it into some extortion type -tip he the last person to be speaking on that type ov shyt ....
Busta being on the Ante Up remix was always hilarious to me because of the robbery rumors
nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn,nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn,nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn BRA BA DOO!!!!
He shouldn't have had anything to do with the remix to this song.
Love this joint. Jersey stayed puttin it down.
"If you want your shyt back, you had to pay for that shyt!"
It dont make LL soft, for the fact we know cats wasnt strong arming ole boy.
Yet Busta on the other hand, I havent heard to many stories abot him whylin during the LOTNS era..
It's funny cuz Busta always presented himself as someone not to be fukked with.
Thats not true but let rumors turn to facts on the net
