Best Ballers Out, or B.B.O., also known as The B.B.O. Crew, B.B.O. Enterprises or B.B.O. Niggas were a Harlem based group composed of (then Murda) Maseâ€™s brother Blinky Blink (who would later be known from Harlem World), Napizm, White Bread, Beef Tha Thief, Futuristic and manager Chuck Black. (Real names according to the credits on their EP: T. Gilford, M. Foster, K. Leigh, G. Jones, G. Burgess and T. Saunders.) They had ties to DJ S&S, the Niggaz For Life crew and The Children of the Corn(er), first getting shout outs from the likes of Mase and Big L starting around â€™93, their song from â€™96 Get Rude may have been inspired by Maseâ€™s â€™93 track of the same name (V2 / VBR). Sometime starting around â€™97, shortly before the group disappeared, they had ads up in The Source promoting what would have been their debut album: Across From 125th St., which of course never dropped. By the end of â€™98 they had basically all but vanished completely.
