Supercut: Wu-Tang says Wu-Tang

Wu-Tang says “Wu-Tang” a lot. They also like to remind you who Wu-Tang consists of. This is every time they say “Wu-Tang” from their five studio albums: 36 Chambers, Wu-Tang Forever, The W, Iron Flag and 8 Diagrams.

Inmate Confesses to Shooting Tupac Shakur in 1994

A federal inmate named Dexter Isaac has confessed to shooting Tupac Shakur in a 1994 gunpoint robbery. Isaac says he was hired to rob the rapper by music exec James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond. Tupac died two years later in another (possibly related) shooting.

Although Tupac himself implicated Rosemond in the shooting, Rosemond’s lawyers dispute Isaac’s confession. The statute of limitations on the attack has expired, but prosecutors could still go after Rosemond on racketeering charges.

In his statement, Isaac implied that this might help solve the murders of both Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. “I want to apologize to [Shakur’s] family and for the mistake I did for that sucker [Jimmy Henchman]. I am trying to clean it up to give [Tupac and Biggie’s] mothers some closure.”

Then and now: The baby from the Notorious B.I.G. album cover

17 years later, the former baby model who graces the cover of Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready to Die has finally come forward to identity himself.

18-year-old Bronx-native Keithroy Yearwood told the New York Daily News that his family received $150 for a two-hour session that landed him on the cover of Biggie’s debut album.

“It’s an honor to be on this album. I got chosen out of a lot of kids. I guess it’s the afro.”

Remembering Notorious B.I.G.

Yesterday was the 14th anniversary of the tragic death of Biggie Smalls. To mark the occasion, News One took to the streets of Brooklyn, asking people about their memories of him and if hip-hop reflects and incites violence.
