Today In Hip Hop History: Big Pun’s Posthumous ‘Yeeeah Baby’ Album Turns 20 Years Old!

On this day in 2000, the first posthumous LP to be released by the first “Latin to go platinum” entitled Yeeeah Baby was released on the Loud/Terror Squad imprint.

Christopher Big Pun Rios passed away just shy of two months before the release and anticipated success of his sophomore LP, which came on the heels of his debut album, Capital Punishment. With appearances from the entire Terror Squad and executive production by the TS general Fat Joe, the 16-track album showed Pun’s acute diversity not only in his lyricism, but his approach to song making, which yielded some of the most memorable songs of his career. Because of Pun’s extreme obesity, the album took longer to record since his breathing problems couldn’t permit him to freely spit his custom, rapid fire flow.

Some of the LP’s favorites are the Puerto Rican anthem “100%” with Terror Squad crooner Tony Sunshine on the hook, “New York Giants” featuring M.O.P., “Ms. Martin”, an ode to his protege Remy Ma and the touching single “It’s So Hard” featuring Donnell Jones.

Salute to Big Pun, Pun Jr. and the entire Terror Squad for this unparalleled piece of Hip Hop History!

Thieves Snatch $9M Van Gogh Painting From Dutch Museum Shut Down Due To Coronavirus

Even though most of everyone around the world has been ordered to stay home due to the rapid spread of COVID-19, in the Netherlands the thieves made it into an opportunity.

A $9 million original painting by famed, one-eared artist Vincent Van Gogh was lifted from the Singer Laren Museum in the early morning hours of March 30.

Thieves managed to get their hands on the 1884 “Spring Garden” painting by smashing a glass door of the museum. An alarm sounded to alert the police, but the thieves were long gone.

A team including forensics and art theft experts are studying video footage and questioning neighbors to the museum.

The painting was on loan from another Dutch museum, the Groninger, which valued the painting at $9 million.

Today in Hip Hop History: Kris Kross Dropped Their Debut Album ‘Totally Krossed Out’ 28 Years Ago

On this day in Hip Hop history, Atlanta based tag-team Kriss Kross released their ridiculously successful debut album, Totally Krossed Out.

The album was the follow up to the mega-hit single Jump released in February of the same year. Largely written and produced by Jermaine Dupri, it took two years to produce the album after the musical concept for the group was conceptualized.

Totally Krossed Out was as successful as anyone could ask their debut album to be. The album claimed the #1 spot on both the Billboard 200 chart and the Top R&B/Hip-Hop chart and sold over four million copies in the year of its release. Two of the four singles released from the album, “Jump” and “Warm It Up” were both #1 Hot Rap Singles.

“Jump” is one of the biggest singles of its era. It claimed the #1 spot on the Eurochart Hot 100 as well as the top music charts in Australia, Finland, Ireland, New Zealand, and Switzerland. It was a Top 10 hit all over Europe. The single went double platinum in the United States and Silver in France (125,000 copies sold) all in 1992.

At the time of this release, Kris Kross members Mac Daddy and Daddy Mac were only 12 and 13 years old. Jump was the fasting selling single in fifteen years and the two rose instantly to be among the ranks of child stars in the entertainment industry.

The critical reception for the album was much better than one would expect for a rap album by two children. Publications praised Jermaine Dupri for his creation and Kriss Kross for their iconic swagger and style. They received high ratings from a plethora of magazines and media outlets with little negative feedback.  The success of this album landed the duo a spot opening on Michael Jackson’s 1992 European Dangerous World Tour and a cameo in Michael Jackson’s “Jam” music video.
