Former State Property Members Discuss Bullsh*t With Beanie Sigel and Roc-A-Fella

Former members of the legendary rap group State Property, Oschino Vasquez and Peedi Crakk stopped by The Breakfast Club to try and shed light on recent beefs and why Oschino opted-out of the BET Hip Hop Awards cypher.
The pair give a very REAL interview. Touching on topics such as:

  • Oschino being the first from the group signed to Roc-A-Fella Records
  • Gentrification in Philadelphia
  • Where the beef between Oschino and Beanie began
  • Why Peedi decided not to side with Dame Dash when Roc-A-Fella fell from greatness
  • …and more

A question was posed as to why neither O nor Crakk ever dropped solo albums. Peedi explained “Roc-A-Fella crippled us a lot.” He also stated “we became the most important thing in Philly.” Both very true statements, State Property should have been way bigger than it was. (This could be my biased inner Philadelphian speaking, idk.) Just check out the interview below and form your own opinion.

What a Time to be From Philly

The BET Hip-Hop Awards was a star-studded showcase of the many forms of hip-hop. In tradition, the show was opened with a cypher of some of the hottest rappers out and some newcomers, ready to shuffle up the game. Lil Wayne, even blessed the mic. A Boogie, Don Q, Jidenna, Kent Jones, and Nick Grant all spit fire no one could put out.

If you’re a Philly native like myself, you couldn’t help but notice we were heavily represented from the beginning to the end of the show. In this necessary cypher, the legendary hip-hop group known as State Property let everybody know they still got it. Freeway, Neef Buck, Peedi Crack, Beanie Sigel, and Omillio Sparks brought back that gritty, hood rap that the industry has been missing. Get a load of the reintroduction below.

That’s not all.
The spotlight was not off of Philly artists just yet. Kur, Ms. Jade, and Empire’s Yazz The Greatest, and Bre-Z put on for our city. Alongside Dave East, Young M.A, and Sam Black, Kur and Ms. Jade held their own with unforgettable bars. Pay attention to Kur he is moving strategically through the music industry and is set to release an album titled “Shakur” in a few weeks.

The most important cypher of the night included the self and critically acclaimed Best Rapper Alive, Lil Wayne, and the crowd favorite, Chocolate Droppa. Now, I know you guys are probably thinking, “Siani who is Chocolate Droppa?” He’s Philly comedian Kevin Hart’s rapper alter-ego. While Mr. Hart is from Philly, Droppa hails from Cumberland, KY.

See what I was saying? A night full of familiar faces. Philly, our city is on the rise and it’s up to us to support our local artists to be all they can be.
I mean you never know, you could be the next big thing to blow.
