      The picture above should answer your question.

  • On September 14th, it was a late night. My cell was on the nightstand, buzzing like crazy. After a flurry of text alerts rang out, I started searching for my phone.

    Considering how late it was, I was surprised that anyone was texting me. I stopped, grabbed the phone, grinning as I realized who it was – Vladimir’s mom. When I saw her name flash across the screen, my heart started beating like a drum set. And it was good, news. She was in the area, and wanted to know if she could stop by, for the rest of the night.

    After I read the text, I quickly replied, telling her to head over.

    Since I had just gotten back from the gym, I jumped in the shower – then threw some sweats on. I sprayed my cologne, then fixed myself in the mirror before getting my phone and heading downstairs, to unlock the door for my sexy guest.

    It’s been a while, so I was really looking forward to seeing her. I missed her, and I hadn’t seen her voluptuous ass walking around the office, in her insanely tight jeans, in weeks. Plus, we hadn’t hung out in months, so it feels like forever since we last had sex.

    She was gorgeous, and wore things that made it even more apparent, and it drove men and women crazy. Guys joked about putting her in their spank bank, as much as women did. Her smooth cocoa skin, small waist, and flawlessly sultry ass made her a heartbreaker. The contrast of her dark caramel complexion, mixed with her hazel-brown eyes, and luscious cherry red lips made her look like a goddess, wrapped in human flesh.

    I met her when she was interning. We had an in depth interview, I handled her hiring afterwards. I was incredibly impressed by her skillsets – to say the least. She was very eager to demonstrate, and it was very pleasing. Needless to say, she got the job.

    A few weeks later, we hung out after a late meeting, grabbed a few drinks at our Local Spot, sports bar. A few flirtatious smiles, we ended up in the bathroom together, things got interesting and we ended up spending the night, that turned into a weekend long sex session. I made her do things, she never imagined. Now, she can never forget them.

    Turns out she’s a freak, that loved sex as much as I do. She made love like a lady, fucked like a nympho, and sucked dick like a porn star. Our chemistry was overpowering, the only thing better, was the kinky sex we had.

    After a few quickies at the office, we started dating. But since we worked together, we kept it private, so nobody knew about it. It lasted for a few months. Unfortunately, the relationship didn’t work out, but the sex since the sex did, so we developed an addiction, that turned into an understanding.

    We ended the relationship because I couldn’t trust her, and after what she put me through, I probably shouldn’t trust her again. But, we continued fucking because the sex was mind blowing, we never stopped, so I had to trust her, she was my partner in crime.

    I was the first man to get her off, and she screams louder than any woman I have ever fucked, and when she was screaming, she was begging for more.

    We would fuck a few times a week, occasionally more when we had the time. We would spent hours, fucking each others brains out. As soon as I would bust, she would get me hard again. As soon as she would cum, I would get her clit hard again. Her legs would literally go numb, from all the different positions we tried. Her stamina was unbelievable; after her legs gave out, I’d still fuck her until I was satisfied. Sometimes, I would throw her up against the wall, hold there like a rag doll, wrap her legs around my waist and have my way with her for another hour, before I let her down.

    She loved when I just, held her down, pinning her legs back against the headboard. She loved it rough, and she liked it dirty, and I couldn’t get enough. Holding her legs back, as I grinned my waist into her’s looking deep into her eyes. She would walk into the room and a my cock would get hard, instantly just thinking about what I was planning on doing to her later. She would notice, and run off to the ladies room.

    Our attraction had an unbreakable hold over us, and it lasted longer than we did. We kept up our bad habit for a few months, until things with her then husband (uʍop ǝpısdn) got serious. Then, went back to once a weak. Even though we tried to stay away from each other, it was impossible. He knew how to love her, but I specialized in pleasing her.

  • JD


  • The Gary Group

    You know B.Dot couldn’t wait to ask Biggs about his idol Jay Z. That’s all he interviews is niggas who had/have an affiliation to him. So he can salivate over his dick

    • SaniAbacha


      • The Gary Group

        Nigga say I’m lying. Every interview this nigga do have someone who has ties to Jay or something. Even if they don’t he still tries to find a way to involve Jay in some form or fashion. He’s a groupie for that nigga

        • SaniAbacha

          Haha. You ethered Dot.

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      Ayo. Keep the imagery to yourself, Andrew cunanan

  • Mike Bubbster

    I’ve listened to thousands of interviews ovwr the years and this is the best interview. Definitely my No.1 favorite interviews EVER!! Saute

  • NoPo Truth

    Awesome interview – I expected him to be more reserved but he wasn’t.. dope to learn how involved he was with the mid era Roc albums.. also his St. Thomas background explains A LOT re: their early finances. Can’t believe how much he sounds like Dame Dash.. I know they were boys from the same hood, but still.

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller


  • Idris Newton

    Don’t be surprised if these guys get Jesus and The Prophet Muhammad(SAW) on here next lol

  • Idris Newton

    Listening to this with stars in my eyes man …as a roc fan man this is like hearing abraham lincoln deliver the gettysburg address


    This interview shows complete contradicting thoughts between damn near best friends!!! After the break up in every interview Dame acted like he should be on suicide watch yet Biggs pointed out numerous times how everyone had begun preparing for doing their own things years in advance including selling the label!!!! It’s like the opposite attracts theory Dame is loud & abrasive while Biggs is laid back & quiet. It’s also interesting how he points out that a lot of Jay’s closest homeboys he’s cool with yet Dame recently said he can’t/don’t fuck with Jay’s people. Lastly Dame was screaming & bitching at Kanye for not supporting Biggs etc. & yet he said clearly Kanye doesn’t/didn’t owe him shit & he couldn’t even understand what that was about. Salute Great Interview!!!!

    • Dame was clearly throwing a pity party, but I never really wanted to believe it but with this interview it really shows Dame was the issue.

      • Marc To

        Still though kanye did make ammends with dame as exec prod of Loisadas movie and karmaloop. Also to some degree Dame felt since he gave Kevin Hart and Kanye their big break and he wants kanye to acknowledge this is some sort of way especially he became close to jay z.

    • LP1087

      jail time, clarity. Not saying he didn’t feel this way b4 but…….

    • Marc To

      Still though kanye did make ammends with dame as exec prod of Loisadas movie and karmaloop.

  • Biggs did it 1st and Jay put it in a verse…

  • Vurbz Fenomeno

    Best episode ever. Who would’ve thought the most silent one was actually so instrumental and is very business savvy and eloquent. Dude is the real deal. Basically shed light on slot of the bullshit that dame was talking.

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      To be honest, Biggs is a street guy. it was HIS money that started Roc. It’s understandable why he didn’t want to speak after all these years

      • FACTS!!!

        DRY SNITCHIN!!!

  • Mylo

    Great interview.

    mac Diesel hasn’t had pussy since pussy had him.

  • Hard. Kudos to RapRadar for continuing to supply dope shit to the culture.

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller


  • Curtis75Black

    This was a really good interview. Something Hip Hop in general needed. A voice from someone rarely heard.

  • Suede

    This interview was dope. The mere fact that Biggs doesn’t interview much and you were actually able to pull some info from him was admirable, unlike that Mack Wilds interview where you asked him 1000 questions about The Wire. Nore straight bodies you guys, but there is room for both.


    I’m from tha south but I was a huge fan of the ROC. I love to hear these niggas from the 90’s tell stories and talk about the way that real niggas came up in tha game. It’s cool because there’s only a handful of niggas that can actually tell those stories. You either had to be there, or you were Shit outta luck. I hate these new school rap niggas that let their lives play out on Twitter and Instagram, Shit is for suckas. NORE and BIGGS are the best interviews yet. Love to here them niggas dropping nostalgic gems. Elliot and BDOT, keep that shit comin. I’m waitin for Scarface, and for you new school niggas and lames, I ain’t talkin bout the fuckin movie.
