If you’ve ever thought that Diddy AKA Sean Combs was using Notorious B.I.G.’s name, influence, persona or otherwise to his benefit, then you’re not alone.
Apparently, 50 Cent doesn’t take too kindly to Diddy’s use of Biggie’s memory in order to flourish his own career. Diddy uses Biggie’s name in his new video for The Ghost Of Christopher Wallace. 50 Cent has since launched a Twitter campaign to get Diddy to stop.
On July 7th, he tweeted, “RT @boobootv: #Twitition R.I.P. B.I.G. – Stop @iamDiddy http://twitition.com/lxvqo @boobootv”

If you weren’t a fan of Katy Perry’s latest song, California Gurls (or it’s spelling), then you are not alone. She branded the song as her answer to Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ NYC tribute, Empire State of Mind. But is it really a good answer? Sure, the song has Snoop Dogg on it, but he really makes the song, not her.
So, instead of blaring that from your iPod, we’ve got a list of seven California songs that would be much better suited to your eardrums. Enjoy. (continue reading…)
Diddy has said that he used therapy to get over the death of friend Notorious B.I.G., along with his breakups with Kim Porter and J-Lo.
He said, “I’ve gone to therapy for relationships I’ve been in, for tragedies I’ve been through. I think therapy is good. I’ve been called bipolar – I’m not; I just have very drastic mood swings. I went to therapy when Big died, but a lot of my therapy has been with love and relationships. I’ve had therapy about my relationship with Kim, about my relationship with Jennifer. Therapy helped me through a lot of those situations.”
Maybe he just needs to talk through how much he sucks?
Sean “Diddy” Combs is feeling guilty about the death of rapper Notorious B.I.G. and he’s taking the blame for Big even being in the country.
Diddy talked to “Playboy” magazine and said, “Big was supposed to go to London, but he called me that morning and said he needed two days with me to celebrate finishing his album, because we never hung out in clubs. He said he wasn’t going to London, and he was coming to my house to get me to go to the Vibe party. In retrospect, I should have flipped out as I normally do and made sure he got on that plane to London.”
You should feel guilty, you schmuck. You would be nowhere without his talent. Loser. RIP Biggie Smalls.

almost singlehandedly made Hip Hop music mainstream.Remember that bit in Notorious B.I.G’s song “Juicy” that mentions “Every Saturday Rap Attack Mr. Magic Marley Marl”? He was referring to Mr. Magic AKA John Rivas, the man who
Magic, whose real name was John Rivas, co-founded WBLS-FM’s Rap Attack radio show in 1983 and helped inspire budding stars like Notorious B.I.G. and Nas with early East Coast rhymes. Rap Attack went off the air in 1989, but Magic remained influential.
Rap Attack debuted in 1983 on WBLS with Mr. Magic and his sidekick Marley Marl. It’s a sad day for Hip Hop.
RIP Mr. Magic.

Can’t wait to see this movie. Love us some Biggie. RIP.
Here’s an inside look at the costume designs for the characters that played Biggie and Faith in the movie Notorious.
I’m going to watch this movie, Biggie was a total icon.
Suge Knight will be named in the wrongful death lawsuit involving Notorious B.I.G., Christopher Wallace.
The Wallace family believe Knight ordered the murder of the larger-than-life rapper in the infamous East Coast/West Coast rap war, which also claimed the life of Death Row artist Tupac Shakur in September 1996. Knight has denied having any involvement in either murder.
So you know where Biggie is and you order some low-life cop to go and take care of him?
Notorious B.I.G. was a great ruler in the hip hop kingdom and he’s missed. RIP Biggie. Hope your murderer(s) are brought to justice swiftly.
Waymond Anderson, who is locked up for a separate crime not involving the slain rapper stated that he lied inout of the city for the victim’s family:
Anderson’s deposition, first reported Wednesday in the Los Angeles Times, states that he was offered a portion of any settlement if he testified that former police Officer Rafael Perez told him that another ex-police officer, David Mack, was involved.
Both Mack and Perez have long denied any involvement in the March 9, 1997, murder of the New York rapper, also known as Biggie Smalls.
“I don’t know David Mack, I don’t know Rafael Perez,” Anderson said in the deposition. “It was a lie, and I’m ashamed of it.”
Somehow, somewhere, we need to get to the truth behind the slaying of Christopher Wallace. This is a tragedy and with all of the DNA and forensics science of our time, we should’ve been able to find a viable answer already.
See a reports flying around that Sean Kingston landed the role to play the slain rapper in the movie based on his life.? I didn’t think so. So, ignore those
