Major Figgas Miscellany

Over at the forum, contributor GoodLook was kind enough to drop some joints from Philadelphia’s own Major Figgas, a crew that may be directly unfamiliar to many, but have indirectly exerted some influence on the music industry in the past decade through their frequent collaborations and partnerships with some of your favorite rappers:

Major Figgas was founded in the Erie Ave area of Philadelphia by Gillie Da Kid and Abliva, who were friends from the neighborhood.[1] They knew Bump J, Dutch and Rolx from all living in the same area, and eventually expanded after inducting Spade and Bianca. Chops, Rucie, L deniro and Dirty Rik all soon came aboard. After releasing several underground tapes, they released the full-length Figgas 4 Life independently which landed them a deal with RuffNation Records/Warner Bros. Records. At this time they had an ongoing back and forth fued with Jay-Z & his Roc-A-Fella rap group State Property. An expanded edition of the album was issued in 2000, which reached #115 on the Billboard 200 and #29 on the U.S. R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.[2] Their lone major radio hit was “Yeah That’s Us”, which hit #2 on the U.S. Rap Singles chart and #34 on the R&B Singles chart.[3]They received a ASCAP Song of the Year award for “Yeah that’s us” in 2001.
