Classic Hip-Hop Throwback Footage Pt.20: MTV- Puff Daddy & The Family No Way Out Tour (1997)

This was the Tour event that resurrected hip-hop back into all ur cities venues!! Before this a hip-hop tour was damn near extinct cause of violence that always came with it! And this tour had one heck of bill that interestingly enough had artists that did not get along with each other behind scenes! Jay Z, The Firm, Foxy, Kim, Busta, Mase, Usher, 112 and etc was all apart of this tour. The only kinda setback was about 5 -6 cities in Jigga dipped cause he felt they was treated fairly on the tour, but u gotta remember Jay just dropped his 2nd album so he wasnt that household name like he is now. But all in all this tour broke all barriers and u get a inside look of Puffy's work ethic. Say what u want about this brotha but he works hard 24/ 7 in what he does!

Classic Hip-Hop Throwback Footage Pt. 18: Yo! MTV Raps- Hip-Hop & Fatherhood (1995)

Alot MC's had fathers who wasnt there. So they had to come up rough and figure things out on they own. It could go either way sometimes. But there are a few who had their fathers in their lives one or another in a positive way. Peep this little piece on Yo! MTV Raps about this subject and im a let Nas, Common Sense & D-Nice tell it! I told u guys i always kept the finger by the record button!!

Classic Hip-Hop Throwback Footage Pt. 17: BET Rap City- Method Man (1994)

Back when the Wu-Tang first dropped, their 2nd single was "Method Man"...that right signified that Mr. Meth was the lead man the WU wanted  to rep them to the world. That was in more ways than one cause also he was the lead guy other than RZA to do interviews for magazines and other publications. He was basically their spokesperson! ODB had a hand in that as well in certain situations. Hip-Hop fans worldwide was feenin for more of that Meth flavor and when Tical came out it met all of the expectations and became a instant classic! Here's Big Lez gettin the scoop wit Johnny Blaze back in '94 right before the album drops!
