B.G. which traditionally means Baby Gangsta in black communities is the moniker donned by down south rap vet Christopher Dorsey. B.G. best friends with fallen soldier Soulja Slim and the first artist signed to Cash Money Records at 13 in the 90s made his name writing hood classics for years. B.G. even scored a gold plaque from his revered Chopper City In The Ghetto. B.G.’s album had the single Bling, Bling which changed popular culture forever. After years of being signed to Birdman at Cash Money Records B.G. finally left the label angry and accused Baby of stealing money from him and he went on to start his on imprint. After a few successful releases B.G. found himself in hot water and caught a gun charge landing him 14 years in federal prison. Regardless B.G. is responsible for the music scene shifting the way it has over the past decade and he is not only one of the rawest MCs he’s one of the smoothest and most lyrical MCs as well. His discography is bound to turn any situation into a gangsta party. Artists like Lil Wayne looked up to B.G. and modeled themselves musically after him. Here at Da Chicken Shack we must acknowledge B. Gizzle for the contributions he’s given hip hop. FREE BG! For any supporters who feel how we feel about B.G. we found his prison addy for you. In the words of the late great Pimp C “If your homie locked up you should send him some shit, cause it’s never too late to quit being a bitch.”

Too Short is an Oakland MC from the 80s who brought pimping into the rap game. Not only does he produce, write his own rhymes, but he has been doing it for almost 30 years straight! Arguably every MC has been influenced on some level or another by “Short Dawg”. With career ups and downs, a couple years ago he was caught by TMZ taking local Oakland officers on a foot pursuit, but he’s also a platinum seller. Even if you’ve never bought a Too Short album you’ve definitely heard his influence and his unique way of saying “beyotch!” on popular tv shows, movies, and in various songs. Most recently Too Short has been appearing in reality tv shows (Couple’s Therapy, LA Hair) which has given his long lasting career even more life. Take time to explore Too Short’s 16 + album catalogue and get ready to learn something about macking and pimping and Oakland. The video attached is especially unique because Short describes his lengthy career in 2 short 16s on a club beat like only Too Short can. Honorable mention for the Gettin It album, Too Short’s short lived retirement project, and the CLASSIC Freaky Tales. ENJOY! BEYOTCH!
Stars some of hip hop’s legendary rappers and takes you on the road. A CLASSIC hip hop movie that was once in movie theaters nationwide. Starring Diddy, Dr.Dre, B.I.G., Snoop Dogg, Method Man and countless others… Enjoy!
In 2014 Howard University in Washington, DC decided to give Diddy his honorary degree in Humanities. Upon receiving his doctorate he gave a very motivational speech. Puff Daddy went to Howard in the early 90s but dropped out of college to become the mogul he became. This is a fan made video live from the graduation.
