Cam’Ron Hints At The Story Behind Big L’s Murder In New Verse

Cam hints that there’s more to the story surrounding Big L’s death, as he also drops the name of Gerard Woodley, the man whom many believe killed Big L.

“139 Park, we started off as children/Grew up with Big L, and the dude who supposedly killed him/A week before that, though, Big L tried to kill him/What was he to do? […] When the time’s right I will tell you about these villains/Now everybody dead, so it ain’t about squealing.”

On Feb. 15, 1999, Big L died in Harlem after being shot in the face and chest nine times. The primary murder suspect was Woodley, a fellow rapper and childhood friend of Big L’s who was eventually arrested for the crime. But due to a lack of evidence, Woodley avoided formal charges, and the case remains unsolved.

Hip-Hop Family Tree: Featuring Nicki Minaj

R&B group and production team responsible for hits by Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam, James Brown, UTFO and many others. She briefly performed in Hood$tars, a pop-rap group led by Full Force member Bowlegged Lou’s son, Lou$tar. (It’s also where she met her former fiancée, Safaree Samuels.) She built her reputation through rugged freestyle performances on hood platforms like Smack DVD and The Come Up. It was on the latter where Lil Wayne discovered her, and he began mentoring her.

Nicki Minaj spent the next two years honing her style and image. She spit rhymes alongside street acts like Maino, Hell Rell, Red Café, Ransom, Jadakiss, Ron Browz, Stack Bundles, French Montana, and Gravy. She traveled to Atlanta and recorded songs with Gucci Mane, an experience she’d later say was crucial to her development, as well as Soulja Boy, Yung Joc. In the process, she evolved from a hardcore New York spitter to a polymorphous, unpredictable artist that experiments with vocal tone and multiple identities. Her breakthrough arrived with her third mixtape, 2009’s Beam Me Up Scotty, which generated her first Billboard charting hit, “I Get Crazy,” and found her working with Lil Wayne’s Young Money team like Drake, Jae Millz, and Weezy himself. An appearance on Birdman’s Priceless paired her with the pioneering rapper Lil Kim.

Thanks to Beam Me Up Scotty, as well as the Young Money crew album We Are Young Money, Nicki Minaj became one of the hottest rappers in the music industry. She landed big pop collaborations with Beyoncé, Rihanna, Usher, Christina Aguilera, Madonna, and Mariah Carey. But she also bolstered her hip-hop credentials with standout verses for Kanye West, Ludacris, Trina, Fabolous, and Big Sean. She released sonically diverse multi-platinum albums like Pink Friday, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, and The Pinkprint, and held her own with Cam’ron and Nas. Like those two icons in their heyday, Nicki Minaj can make a claim to being the biggest rapper in New York, even though her successful forays into mainstream pop and EDM meant that she often doesn’t get proper recognition for her trailblazing hip-hop career.

MultiHop HighLights Cam’ron Plans Final Project “Purple Haze 2″

Screen Shot 2015-05-13 at 4.40.06 AM

“Me and A-Trak are going to finish our [Federal Reserve] project up. He had some touring he needed to do. The Dipset stuff presented the opportunity so therefore we stopped what we was doing to attend our personal business but we’re going to get back on track with that. The A-Trak project will probably come out this fall, hopefully, and this December, we might put out Purple Haze 2. Maybe. If not, it’ll come out April. I may be doing an album based on the pantone color that I’m creating. I don’t want to speak too on it because it’s not signed, sealed and delivered. But we’ll definitely put out a solo Cam project in December, not sure if it’s going to be my final project, Purple Haze 2, which ‘will’ be my final project and being that we’re working on this pantone situation, we may do something in-between that but that’s not definite.”

Cam’ron — Cashing in on Ebola with Tricked Out Masks

If you’re looking to stay safe from Ebola in style … Cam’ron has you covered for less than $20.

The rapper’s line of Ebola masks — with his mug plastered across the front — start shipping in a few weeks … and while the price might be right, the science behind it isn’t.

Ebola isn’t an airborne virus — so, the mask is pretty much useless … for now.
