Crazy Like That Glue: The Craig Mack Story (Documentary)

Heads know that Notorious B.I.G. hit hard in the mid-90s and Bad Boy Records was knocking the competiton out the damn ring! Okay, but heads who really know know that there was another emcee that was right there, that was the first, the premiere artist that was actually supposed to be the Bad Boy standard bearer… the one they call Craig Mack! You remember “Flava In Ya Ear” was the business! But somehow business got eff’d up along the way.

This Craig Mack documentary tells us how, and how “Crazy Like That Glue” things really came to be. You know, heads are probably wondering, “Whatever happened to Craig Mack anyway?”

This doc covers that, too. Fascinating viewing. If you pay close enough attention, you’ll probably be as intrigued by folks who had NOTHING to say in this as you’ll be by what folks appearing in the doc had to say. Go on, settle in, and press play.

(Film produced by James Billings.)

Rare Footage: Notorious B.I.G. – “Warning” Video Shoot (Video)

I love when rare footage gets unearthed & uploaded on the web of because it’s like instant gold for real hip hop heads. Check out this rare footage from behind the scenes of Biggie’s “Warning” video shoot that just popped up on the web yesterday we caught via Missinfo. One of the great things about his video is in the interview is when Biggie keeps things very honest about not being too hollywood by renting out the cribs & things & wanting to do better for his daughter. Later on in the video they also interview a young Sean “Puffy” Combs as well as Biggie’s former business partner Lance “Un” Rivera….

Machine Gun Kelly Signs With Diddy’s Bad Boy Records (Video)

I’m not too familiar with Cleveland artist Machine Gun Kelly, but this video that his team Est 19xx sent me was very interesting to watch. In short it follows the come up of a young kid making his way in the world from basically nothing & trying to make his dreams in the music industry come true. I like Machine Gun Kelly’s energy & would like to see & hear more music over time, but honestly I do have some reservations about him signing with Bad Boy records. Hopefully they’ll do right by the kid in the long scheme of things. Machine Gun Kelly is full of wide eyed enthusiasm & that’s always a good thing with new young artists, but I sincerely hope he doesn’t lose that energy & enthusiasm after dealing with all the industry bullsh*t that will eventually come along with all his successes up to this point. Good luck kid….

Producer D-Dot Explains His Feud with Kanye West

In an interview with XXL, former Bad Boy producer D-Dot did not hide his distaste for Kanye West, his former protege. Kanye claims he ghost produced for D-Dot at the beginning of his career. D-Dot says:
I didn’t do nothing to him. I didn’t rob him. All that ghost production shit he started and had the world makin’ ‘em think that he did everything.
Kanye says D-Dot took credit for tracks he did not produce. The two shared credits on tracks like Nas’ Poppa Was a Playa.
D-Dot said the two are respectful when they see each other but,
…all that shit he had people believing is actually disrespectful by believing that somebody like myself would actually take his music and rob him and put my name on it like he didn’t get credit.
