Thread: Interesting facts...

    Default Re: Interesting facts...

    Here's a real fact. Modern scholars believe that black slavery in the United States was derived from indentured servitude. It should be noted that it did not exist in the colonies for some time. However, blacks did serve as indentured servants, a similar condition. The case that is believed to have set the precedent for racial slavery was one of three servants escaping. A black man, a white man and a white woman. The whites were punished in some manner. i forgot which. The black, on account of his blackness, had his servitude extended indefinitely, essetially making him a slave.

    If you want to check that, it was in one of my textbooks. I dont have it with me though and Ive forgotten the name.

    Another fact is that in 1927 the poor, black sections of New Orleans were intentionally flooded.

    I was thinking that it was a book that you can retreive the name of from one of your classes or something. I know that I can find the names of my old textbooks from my old (college) classes that I attended. Just curious, cause I wanted to check it out sometime.

    Golden Era group EPMD's breakup was dicey, to say the least. In '92, a group of armed goons broke into Parrish "PMD" Smith's Long Island home, looking to hurt him. When they couldn't find P., they tied up and assaulted one of Parrish's friends, who was in the home at the time of the break-in.

    When the cops arrested and questioned one of the goons, he fingered Erick "E-Double" Sermon as the orchestrator of the break-in. P. waited a bit, to get his affairs in order. Then, after a taping of 'The Tonight Show' with EPMD and Das EFX in early '93, Parrish came back to N.Y., filed charges, and had Sermon arrested. EPMD's break-up was announced shortly thereafter.

    After being cleared of the charges and released from jail, Erick Sermon had a semi-nervous breakdown. Forced to start over again, Sermon packed his bags and moved to Atlanta, at the urging of his friend, Michigan rapper M.C. Breed. Sermon, a millionaire just two years earlier, left New York with only $1,000 and an American Express card to his name.

    We all know The Notorious B.I.G. was killed in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997. But, ironically, Biggie shouldn't have been in L.A. that weekend. Big, who'd been in L.A. since early February '97 promoting his 'Life After Death' album, was supposed to hop a flight to London on Friday, March 7, 1997, to continue his promotional junket. Biggie canceled his flight, and chose to remain in L.A. that weekend. He enjoyed the sunshine too much, and didn't want to leave it behind to go to an overcast London. Plus, he disliked European food. It may seem trite, but it's true. If Biggie had gotten on that flight on March 7th, he might still be with us.

    Mr. Lif is said to be a second grade teacher.

    Krazyzie Bone is a Jehovah Witness

    Dre didnt like Snoop's raps, when he first heard them.

    Krazyzie bone is singing "Gangsta party" in that Snoop & pac song (but was uncredited for it, i think).

    Canibus is allergic to seafood.

    Suge Knight told J.D. to leave in 5 min. When they were both at the same club.

    Beanie Sigel, used to own a hot-dog stand.
