March 20, 1968 – #OnThisDateInHipHop, Buckwild was born. Buckwild would grow up to: (1) take up DJ’ing, (2) become a member of the Diggin’ In The Crates crew, (3) release 2 collaborative albums and 2 compilations, and (4) produce gems such as Biggie’s “i Got A Story To Tell, Black Rob’s Whoa, Big L’s Put It On, #BloodBlockedMe’s Like Father Like Son and more.
Happy Birthday Buckwild!
Biggie’s “I Got A Story To Tell” ALMOST didn’t make the album despite Buckwild creating the beat for it from a $2 record. See below how they got around a pesky sample clearance issue.
