#2pac and #Biggie ( #realhiphop )

They’re still trying to be 2pac and Biggie / but oh no,
only know All Eyez On Me and Mackaveli. Who me? /

I’m still feeling Keep ya Head Up, Brenda’s got a Baby,
Dear Momma, and Holla if ya Hear Me, / who me?

I’m still trying to be Run DMC meets Chuck D, William Blake
and Jalal ad-Din Rumi. Plus 2pac and Biggie. So sue me.

Remember Ricochet aka Juggla reds put me onto Kool G Rap, and soon as he
got out of uni, but im no thug im a rainbow warrior like Teo, Katie, Hymn, and Muni.

I’m not just about the cash, booty and jewellery,
I’m about the next generation and prophecy, really and truly,

I’m about spreading love, open ended benefit, n tomfoolery, not coonery
– and sometimes cash or booty, just not usually 😉 x

Easy Mo Bee (Biggies original producer) deserves your love and respect

I’m in a ranting mood so I’m gonna throw some shine and throw some shade in some directions I feel like throwing it. Easy Mo Bee deserves your love and respect.

EASY MO BEE produced most of Biggies debut by which I mean made the actual beats, but cos Puffy had the title ‘Executive Producer’ credit and was in most of the videos Puffy got most of the credit. Puff turned B.I.G. and Mase into pop stars but Easy Mo Bee gave Biggie the beats you loved. Easy Mo Bee should be a superstar. He produced classics for Pac as well, Temptations by 2Pac was one of his beats.
Executive producer means nothing but “I signed the cheques”, Suge Knight was executive producer on most of the Death Row material but never tried to take credit for making beats.

Or in Wikipedia’s words, “Osten Harvey, Jr., better known by his stage name Easy Mo Bee, is a hip hop/R&B record producer, known for production work for late 80’s artists such as Big Daddy Kane and Miles Davis, but most notable for his affiliation with Bad Boy Records in its early years and his heavy production involvement in The Notorious B.I.G.‘s acclaimed debut Ready to Die

…Additionally, Mo Bee produced the “Flava in Ya Ear (Remix),” a driving single for both projects, featuring Craig Mack, Biggie, Busta Rhymes, Rampage and LL Cool J. {Remember how Puff was all over the vid for that, but he didn’t make that beat!}.

In 1994-’95, Mo Bee was also associated with 2Pac, having produced songs for both, including one called “Runnin’ From tha Police,” featuring both Pac and B.I.G. as well as rapper/producer Stretch and 2Pac’s crew Dramacydal.[10] Mo Bee went on to produce two songs for Pac’s 1995 album Me Against the World,[11] although the two recorded several other songs that did not make the cut.[12] During this time period, he also crafted moderate radio hits for the Lost Boyz (“Jeeps, Lex Coups, Bimaz & Benz”);[13] Das EFX(“Microphone Master”);[14] and Busta Rhymes (“Everything Remains Raw”)
