Wack 100 on why Biggie wasn't a legend when he died

Record label executive Wack 100 is a well-known name in hip-hop. As well as being a highly vocal individual known for making incendiary comments, he is also renowned for his work as a manager for well-known rappers and singers such as Blueface, The Game, Ray J, and others.

As a former member of the Piru Blood Set of Compton, the executive (real name Cash Jones) takes no prisoners and won’t hesitate to unleash some of his personal hot takes. The industry kingpin was formerly associated with the publicly disgraced emcee Tekashi 6ix9ine.

However, During an appearance on the Drink Champs podcast alongside LA rapper The Game, Jones made an extremely contentious assertion concerning Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur. Addressing their respective legacies, Jones declared, “2Pac died a legend; Biggie didn’t. His body of work, movies, double CDs, and albums that went quadruple [platinum]. Biggie was dead before his [second] album came out. He became [a legend after he passed away]. Over the years muthafuckas remade songs, movies — he became that.”

Unfortunately, Wack 100 continued to speak ill of the dead and blurted out another incendiary opinion about Nipsey Hussle. Insisting the late Crenshaw emcee was not a legend when he was shot and killed in March 2019, Jones exclaimed, “I’m saying [Nipsey] will become a legend. It still hasn’t happened. Movies gotta happen, shit gotta happen. He’s only been gone, what, two years?”

He continued, “The man died with a million followers. No radio hits. No platinum hits. No world tours. After he died, he went platinum, sold a bunch of records, followers went up nine, 10 million. Let’s keep it real. The truth can’t be defined as disrespect.”

Wack 100 is one of the most hated individuals in the hip-hop music business. Akin to Suge Knight, he has always thrown his weight around, been intimidating and very disrespectful to artists. Earlier this year, the label executive went online to reveal that the No Limit founder, Master P, was broke.

However, Master P responded stating, “BROKE is a mindset HATE is a disease.” This is one of many Wack 100 rants, and he is sure to have many more. You can watch his appearance on Drink Champs in the video below.
