Lil Cease, member of Notorious B.I.G.'s legendary rap group Junior M.A.F.I.A., admits that the late MC wrote all of his rhymes.
During his recent sit-down with VladTV, Cease shared that being a rapper was not his idea. Instead, Biggie felt that it would be a good look for him if he was as part of the rap group.
"I started rapping after Biggie passed when I had to write my album. In them times before that, Biggie was writing the raps for me. Everybody else was writing their rhymes, though," he explained. He went on to say that Biggie saw the decision to release Junior M.A.F.I.A. a year after his debut album as a "business move" that played out well for him.
After the New York hip-hop collective was introduced to the world in 1995, Junior M.A.F.I.A. became an instant hit as an extension of the already loved Notorious B.I.G. They released two classic anthems, "Get Money" and "Player's Anthem," and their first album, "Conspiracy," debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200. The group's standout star, Lil Kim, achieved massive success of her own after the group disbanded.
Cease credits B.I.G. with giving him the opportunity, even if he wasn't an actual rapper like his mentor.
"I can't write nothing nowhere near close to what the fuck this n—a was doing. He used to always tell me, 'Don't worry about what you say, it's how you say it.'"
