... so here it is. googled it, and the rm thread from 2012 showed up. so i'll try not posting the facts that were posted in that thread. P. Diddy used to be a back-up dancer for Big Daddy Kane and Heavy D. Nas co-wrote Will Smith’s “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It,” and it was the only Grammy Award-winning project of his career. Lupe Fiasco admitted that Lasers is about his own inner battle with suicide. He said, “I wrestled with suicide. [I wanted to] document that in a song, explain to people what the fight of it is. There’s this wrestling with fame and success: How much is enough? How much of this money can I blow on Ferraris? What level of fame [shows] that I made it? Is it when the paparazzi are chasing me down the streets? Then I’m famous? Or am I famous now?” DMX used to collect bugs. Lil’ Kim was at one time pregnant with Biggie’s baby, but had a miscarriage. She also used to transport drugs on the bus system for him. N.O.R.E. did time for murder when he was a juvenile. Lil Wayne shot himself twice. Jay-Z and Busta Rhymes went to high school together and once battled in their school cafeteria. DMX and Biggie also went to the same school. Gwen Stefani has won the same amount of Rap Grammys as Nas, Drake, 50 Cent, and Busta Rhymes combined. In 2009, Coolio did a stage dive, nobody caught him, and he ended up being beaten and getting his shoes stolen. Jay-Z wrote The Blueprint in two days. Snoop Dogg went to school with Cameron Diaz and sold her marijuana at the time. add on, but not stuff that we already know.
