As I was driving back home again from school today, i was thinking to myself about 2 scenario's that i think what might of happened if....? Its 2 scenario's in which i know that will trigger alot of responses. And hopefully you all will fully understand what im talkin about unlike the last topic i brought up (dynamic duo's, in which i asked for 2 rappers not groups!!). So here we go!:
Would Bad Boy still be on top if Biggie was still here? Interesting question isnt it? My answer would be a empahatic YES!! Why? Check the steez, If BIG was still here, Puff would still be focused on music not Hollywood. He would of made sure his label would of never fall off like it has. Mase would have never retired, BIG's death played a major part in his thinkin and thats why he decided to retire and turn his life over to God (a decision in which i have no problem with). The LOX would still be on Bad Boy, BIG had a major influence on those dudes man, they loved BIG so they would have stayed. The only person that would still be gone is Craig Mack, cause he left while BIG was still there. Also if yall think Craig Mack & BIG was cool, yall might be mistaken cause i have a interview from BIG in '96 sayin the only reason he was on Flava In Ya Ear was because of a favor. From who? who knows, probably Puff. But thats another story. Also Black Rob, Total, Faith Evans & Carl Thomas would still b doin they thang. So now i pose u the question, would Bad Boy still be on top if BIG was still here?
What would Rocafella be like if Big L was still here and signed with them in back in '99? Im tellin u right now, The ROC would be the shit cause Big L would took that label to the next level. We already know Jay & L has excellent chemistry so it would only be a matter of time before he woulda developed it with Beans & Bleek. Also i think Jay & Dame would still be cool, cause L was from Harlem and Dame would be proud. Plus Jay was already kool with L. The downfall of the ROC to me was back in '02 when they signed Camron. Cam was kool with Dame and u already know that was a Harlem thing. But Cam & Jay never saw eye to eye. And things got worse when Jay went on vacation in mid '02, and Dame was talkin about Cam runnin the ROC. Me and my peoples was like WTF? And before u know it, when Jay came back he started hiring different staff from Dame's staff and so on. It was never the same. If L would of signed then there would of been no need for Cam, plus Dame & Jay woulda been happy cause L was nigga they both liked. Thats my take on it, so whats urs? Would the ROC still be on top if Big L was still here and would of signed with them back in '99?
Holla back people!!
