Biggie got his name from someone though.
The movie is called Let's Do it Again. Biggie Smalls was a gangster that cosby/poitier were trying to double cross. Jimmie walker and John Amos are in the movie too. Worth watching if you haven't seen.
A piece of the action and uptown Saturday night are the other two movies Cosby and poitier did.
But to answer the thread, KRS I was never a fan of dude feel a lot of his music is dated and he didn't really influence that many rappers IMO, I always preferred chuck d over him
He didn't come up with a style that people ran with (Rakim)
He didn't come up with the hard hitting rhymes (Cube)
Multi syllables (Kool G)
Witty funny style (Kane)
Storytelling (slick Rick)
KRS did his famous battle with the juice crew and that's about it.
Would you believe it if I say he embodies ALL of those styles? Plus him and Chuck D brought in the conscious/knowledge of self steez. He also brought in the Reggae style influence in Hip Hop.
