    HIP-HOP Trivia Part 1.

    Hey y'all.. i'm bored and i'm sure some of you are bored.. just answer these and you'll get a prize [prize: nothing!]. I'll put up more if i get a good response. peace.

    1. This "commercial" rapper is half black and half filipino. His second album started his success and fame. In one of his hits, he used a sample from a movie about a young female orphan. Now he has his own label. Who is he?

    2. Who are the two individuals featured on the cover of DJ SHADOW's "ENDTRODUCING" who are shopping for vinyl [aside from the guy in the inner fold and the cat]?

    3. What label was the duo BLACK STAR on before they went to RAWKUS?

    the first one is correct.. JAY-Z is indeed half filipino and half black. he took a sample from "HARD KNOCK LIFE" from ANNIE.
    he also runs ROC-A-FELLA.

    i'm gonna wait for more responses to the other questions.

    im thinkin talib kweli for black star [question 3]

    question 3 asks for the label they were on..

    i hope you're not thinking talib was the record label.

    a hint: the record label is a label that was once HUGE.. i mean HUUUGGEE.

    another clue to question 3:

    the label lost a majority of its prime rappers.

    Congratulations.. i'll give y'all credit.

    Thank you all for playing.

    2.- the two individuals are chief xcel and lyrics born [in the wig]. very very close. props.

    3.- believe it or not... but black star's record label prior to RAWKUS was indeed DEATH ROW. interesting, huh?

    death row???
    well holy shit..

    luckily.. black star was able to hop from death row to rawkus [which is a more suitable label for them] rather easily because both of the labels are part of priority records.

    at least that's my theory.. but it is a fact they were on death row.
    that's what rawkus doesn't want u to know..

    and to all the people who love black star..
    u can keep lovin them... i love em too.
