right off Flatbush Ave, just south of the BQE.
In this case, it’s the almighty George Westinghouse High School in the city of Brooklyn, Kings County, New York, U.S., Planet Earth.
My ridiculous ability to retain insignificant and detailed hip-hop ephemera and then recall it on the Sony soundstage while clutching a buzzer will win you big bucks.
Again, I have the same taste in music as a 17 year old dude from Queens in ’94, and I care about things like where my favorite MCs went to high school.
Biggie and Jay-Z both walked its halls. It’s not too surprising given that BK no doubt has given us the highest number of MCs per capita of any township, village, city or town.
____ until Big said fuck this and left. (Voletta was not pleased and he was, in fact, considered a fool cuz he dropped out of high school)
And because I have OCD of the music history sort and probably a slight case of autism, I’ve already thought about the possibility of these 2 sharing home room. Biggie was born in ’72; Jay, was ’69 (stop giggling). So let’s say, best case scenario, it’s 1987–Big’s 15, a freshman or sophomore, reading Word Up! in the back of math class, and Jay’s 18, a senior and probably long gone.
