“The greatest rapper of time died on March 9th” - Canibus
Every Hip Hop head should know this date. Today marks the 16th year since the passing of the Notorious B.I.G. I often wonder what it would be like if Biggie was still alive. Would he still be relevant in the game like Jay-Z or would he have only been known for what he did in his earlier days like Mobb Deep? At the end of it, it does’t matter. I would love to get that feeling I had every time I would hear a new Biggie joint. Often times it would be on one of my family trips to New York. I remember being in NYC the week after he passed, Funk Flex released “Kick in the Door”. Lil Kim was in the Hot 97 studio as well. He kept hyping it up. “I got a brand new Biggie joint for you New York”. When that joint dropped…… wow. I don’t know how many times he played that song in a row. It was such a dope track. You could tell they proud to bump Biggie’s song. It was New York. He was their King. He made us all feel like a part of us was from the Big Apple. Fuck that. He made us feel like we were from Brooklyn. No matter where you were from, when a Notorious B.I.G. song dropped, you were from Brooklyn.
I don’t think the game will ever see another rapper like Big. And I’m fine with that. I got to live through his era. His impact on Hip Hop is unparalleled. He only made two albums. But those two albums are the greatest Hip Hop albums ever made. Til this day, and probably forever, crowds all over the world still sing along to “Juicy”. Dance to “Hypnotize”. Smoke a blunt to “Notorious Thugs”. Fuck to “I’m Fucking You Tonight”. Who knows what it would be like if he was still here. We’ll never know. But what we can be sure of, he is THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME.

In a society where money is the priority and poverty is the common enemy, people stumble and crumble trying to live the ”American dream”. We struggle for money, work for money, lie for money, steal for money, betray for money, and go to war for money. How do we control this addiction if we can’t live without it? Money is a drug that has us dazed and confused.

ABOUT DJ NEIL ARMSTRONG:
Long before he was Jay Z’s tour DJ for all of 2008 and 2009, or a Global Brand Ambassador for Adidas for 2010, Neil Armstrong was a humble, fan of music. And he has never changed…
Acknowledged as the founding father of the DJ Collective the “5th Platoon”, Neil was born and breed in NYC, cutting his teeth in the early 90’s during the era of backpack Hip-Hop and the art of Turntablism. His time spent in the trenches battling and mastering the art of spinning allowed him to rock shows alongside artists across the Hip-Hop spectrum – from De La Soul, The Roots, Company Flow and Biz Markie, to Kanye West, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes and Wyclef Jean; he was also a member of the critically acclaimed 2 time Grammy -Nominated jazz band – Russell Gunn and Ethnomusicology, playing alongside iconic musicians Kenny Garrett (a member of Miles Davis’ band) and Brandford Marsalis.
Over the last 9 years, he has made an indelible mark in the sub-genre of Hip-Hop known as “Mixtape Culture.” Neil’s highly-regarded mixtapes represent his eclectic music taste and have generated considerable press, most-notably in Rolling Stone, Vibe, MTV.com, Theme, URB and Complex.
Neil has traveled the globe for an array of club appearances and events. He has been the NBA’s DJ of choice for their Rookie Shootout since 2006 and he has performed in Stockholm, Finland, Norway, Ireland, Holland, Poland, Belgium, Iceland, Nigeria, Germany, Vancouver, Toronto, the Phillipines, China, Singapore, Taiwan, and Tokyo, just to name a few spots.
From rocking in front of over 100,000 fans at the Glastonbury Festival, to anchoring a performance on the Letterman Show, to pumping with ice-cold veins at Madison Square Garden (three consecutive shows no less), DJ Neil Armstrong is now in the highest strata of DJ existence.
And even though he can now been seen in videos with Jay-Z and Mary J. Blige, has spun for adidas at the Olympic Games in Beijing, has shared the stage with Rihanna, Beyonce, Kanye West, Young Jeezy, Swiss Beats, Puff Daddy, Timbaland, Bun B, Memphis Bleek, EPMD, and Method Man, or performed alongside Slayer, Interpol, The Cool Kids, Common, Neil Young, Mark Ronson, Coldplay, NERD, and Linkin Park, Neil is as humble and focused as ever.Read more
