Rakim, Pete Rock, the late Heavy D and more will all be inducted into the Hip Hop Museum of Washington D.C. on October 8.
August 9, 2021 Pops would give me half the story all the time. It was always trivia. I was trying to think of the answer first, because I didnt want to sound dumb. Nah, Dad, I didnt. Well, you a quarterback right? After you take the snap, how you gonna get back? Oooh, OK. So I became one of the illest straight dropback quarterbacks in the game. In the first year after my Pops said that to me, I didnt get sacked the whole year. He added, Quarterbacks are 67, 280 pounds. Im glad Eric B. knocked on the door, because Im only 58, buck-forty on a good day. Things happen for a reason. I was in love with football, just like I love music. I really thought I was going to be in NFL one day, but I wasnt quite big enough. Eric B. knocked on the door and some better things happened. The Grand Induction Gala goes down from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. local time at Ivy City Smokehouse. Find more information here.
