He was on G Raps first solo album and did a few more tracks with Grimm. Dude got skills, am I missing something here with more work from him?

B-1 is dope, I don't know what happened to him. He was an associate of MF Grimm who brought a standout performance on Take Em To War and Money On My Brain on G Rap's 4,5,6. Seems like he went quiet even before Grimm did before the shooting incident.
Before 4,5,6 dropped I used to hear B-1 and Grimm up on Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito show (http://cratesofjr.blogspot.com/2010/07/tragedy-khadafi-released-from-prison.html) rippin the mic down. There's a freestyle circulating of Grimm & B-1 where they were rhyming over Black Moon's How Many MC's in '93, I don't know if it's on YouTube but I still got it on cassette.
Check out this massive freestyle collection from WKCR, you'll hear B-1 in the vast collection of dope MCs who rhymed on the show.
Here's an independent 12" he put out in the late 90's feat. Kool G Rap. some dark street cinema Hip Hop. G Rap kills it at the end when he was at the height of his mafioso, Godfather type mic persona.
Check for a copy on vinyl here at CDandLP.com (http://www.cdandlp.com/artist/0-0-0/2/1/b-1-kool-g-rap-b.o.m.b..html), this is something you might have a hard time buyin as mp3 today.
Another banger, his flow and content on this song is what I would've liked to here more in NY during the late 90's instead of all the flossing bullshit. G Rap's crew kept the dark, street energy around.
