Notorious B.I.G.

Notorious B.I.G.

     Christopher George Latore Wallace (May 21, 1972 – March 9, 1997), popularly known as Biggie Smalls (after a gangster in the 1975 film Let’s Do It Again),[1] Big Poppa, Frank White (from the film King of New York), and his primary stage name, The Notorious B.I.G., was an American rapper.
     One of the best to ever grip a mic, Biggie’s Bed-Stuy crime tales, player lifestyle, and untimely death made him a legend. His 1994 debut, “Ready To Die,” featured the classic hits “Juicy,” “Big Poppa,” and “One More Chance.” Biggie was murdered in 1997. His posthumous LPs include “Life After Death” and “Born Again.” Biggie helped make stars out of Lil’ Kim, Jay-Z, Ma$e, the Lox, and Puff Daddy. He called himself Frank White after Christopher Walken’s character in the film “King Of New York.”
     Born in Brooklyn, New York, Biggie grew up during the peak years of the 1980s’ crack epidemic and started dealing drugs at an early age. When Biggie debuted with the 1994 record Ready to Die, he was a central figure in the East Coast and increased New York’s viability at a time when hip hop was mostly dominated by West Coast artists.[2] The following year, Biggie led his childhood friends to chart success through his protégé group, Junior M.A.F.I.A.

Jay-Z

Jay-Z

     Shawn Corey Carter (born December 4, 1969), better known by his stage name Jay-Z, is an American rapper and former CEO of Def Jam Recordings and Roc-A-Fella Records. In addition, he co-owns The 40/40 Club and the New Jersey Nets NBA team. He is one of the most financially successful hip-hop artists and entrepreneurs in America. Jay-Z is one of the most successful examples of the growing power of hip-hop. He has sold over 26 million units in the USA and 50 million copies worldwide.  His critically acclaimed album The Blueprint was written in only two days. After announcing his retirement from recording music in 2003, he returned in late 2006 with the album Kingdom Come which sold 680,000 copies in its first week, Jay-Z’s highest-selling album in a one-week period. The New York Times announced that Jay-Z is on the verge of a partnership with Live Nation for $150 million — among the most expensive contracts ever awarded to a musician. As of 2007, Jay-Z is worth an estimated US$940 million, regaining his position as the richest hip hop artist in the world, which was held in 2006 by Sean “Diddy” Combs.
     One of the most popular and respected emcees in the game, Jay-Z has amassed a startling amount of multiplatinum hits. After several years of successful hustling, Jay-Z released his classic debut album, “Reasonable Doubt,” in 1996. Jay-Z got his start in the rap game rhyming alongside longtime friend Big Jaz. Although Jay-Z retired in 2003, he continued making guest appearances and returned in 2006 with “Kingdom Come.” Jay-Z owns a minority stake in the NBA’s New Jersey Nets.
