Jay-Z Biggie MC Hammer Public Enemy Cd’s


Just picked these up this weekend.  The MC Hammer cd is a Japan only exclusive, kind of dope. Of course I own the top two classics, but still have to pick them up. The P.E. cd is a cool digipack edition.

Word Up! Magazine : Fall Preview ’97 Cover

Issue is R&B heavy but still has information about the deaths of Biggie and Pac. Article on the Wu-Tangs upcoming double album Forever. Note: My issue is not complete, the first page is missing and that is the photo that should be popping out of the middle of the magazine in the circle, instead you got a piece of Shaq from “Steel”. Also missing probably the most crucial part of the magazine, BTNH poster.

Word Up! Magazine 1997 : Notorious B.I.G. Cover

A Word Up special tribute to Biggie. Huge amount of Biggie and anyone associated with him such as Tupac, Diddy, Junior Mafia. Funny that they put the two center photos next to each other are Faith and Lil Kim.

Front Magazine #10 : O.C. Cover

As with all Front Magazines, they are in Japanese, so the cover and pictures inside are all you can really look at. I’m not feeling the cover, but I do like O.C. on it. The back cover has a Conart advertisement with Biggie on it.

Vibe Magazine March 2004 : Alicia Keys Cover

I can’t believe I’m gonna say it with a naked Alicia Keys, but this cover is one of Vibes ugliest. The colors just bad. Kwame back in this issue again talking about being dissed for his polka-dot shirts by Biggie and Tim Dog. Great article on Biggie first meeting Pac as told by lil’ Cease.
