B.I.G. “10 Crack Commandments” Inspiration

Inspiration comes in all forms. And in Biggie’s case, it was found in the July 1994 issue of The Source. For his song “10 Crack Commandments”, Chris’ step-by-step booklet came from a sidebar of a crack cocaine article. Funny how a hot story turned into a hot song.

    Horrorcore been a form of rap, that shit was short lived in the 90′s. Only ones doin that now is crazy white kids.

    And to the rest of you niggas if you followin codes from a rap song you not no street nigga to begin with lol. The streets inspire the rap the other way around makes you a lame
