When I closed my eyes, I could have sworn that Christopher Wallace was spitting hot fire again.  Nope, just a 70+ year old Cuban immigrant on a sparsely watched ESPN show.  However, I can’t lie, I was pretty disappointed when I realized Papi wasn’t going to rap any Bone Thugs lines.  I have listened to “Notorious Thugs” roughly 10,000 times and I still just grunt noises whenever the Bone Thugs parts come on.  Being disappointed that Dan Le Batard’s dad didn’t break down the lyrics to a timeless hip hop classic is #WhitePeopleProblems like you read about.


I was a guest on the Sean and Bo Show podcast last night and had a blast with the guys.  We talked about the John Starks/Biggie rumors from “I Got A Story To Tell”, the fact that Roger Goodell is the Teflon Don of the NFL, and the crazy stories that are coming out of the tragic Rob Bironas story.  Sean and Bo both know their stuff and they are a really easy listen.

For those of you who don’t know the song, reddit user the_one_who_waits does a great job explaining Biggie’s story:

Here’s the story he tells in the song: (more…)


Graduation ceremony: Faith Evans shared a photo on Instagram at the high school graduation of her son Christopher Wallace Jr with the late rapper Notorious BIG

New York City rapper Notorious BIG, real name Christopher Wallace, was shot and killed in Los Angeles in March 1997 when his son was only five months old.

Their son, who also goes by Cee Jay, last year released a rap song with collaborator Jahad called School Knites.

His late rapper father, also known as Biggie Smalls, and R&B singer Faith married in August 1994 after meeting at a Bad Boy records photoshoot.

Wow, good for CJ.  Living the good life in sunny Californ-I-A.  It’s crazy to think that Biggie has been dead for 17 years already, let alone that his then-infant son is now a high school graduate.  Obviously having his father pass away when he was so young is terrible, but having the greatest MC of all time as your father is something to be extremely proud of.  If this doesn’t cause you to binge-listen to classic Biggie the rest of the day, nothing will.

PS- Thinking of a young version of Biggie brings back memories of one of the most underrated videos ever.
