Born & raised in Milwaukee, The Artist Formerly Known as Fresh G has worked at 860 WNOV, WLUM HOT 102, and WKKV in The Mil as a Mixer/DJ/On-Air Personality (1985-1996) before being christened Mike Love and moving to Chicago to work nights on WGCI (1996-2007). Now, back in the Mil-town for a second stint at V100.7, he returns with a moniker given to him in Chicago and effectively dismissing part of his legacy as Fresh G, one of the greatest Mix DJs the city ever produced. Will he succeed at The Crib as Mike Love and forge a new identity in a new era, or will the outside forces from the past force him to reembrace Fresh G? Stay tuned...
Saturday (March 9) marks the 16th anniversary of Biggie Smalls' untimely death at age 24.
The inimitable rapper, born Christopher Wallace, made headlines this year after a newly leaked autopsy report revealed startlingly graphic details about his 1997 murder in Los Angeles (Wallace was shot four times, and struck in the chest, shoulder, leg, forearm and scrotum, while in the passenger's seat of a Chevy Suburban on Wilshire Boulevard).
But the hip-hop legend is also frequently remembered by both his contemporaries and new generations of artists influenced by his music.
Even Jamie Foxx cited Biggie as a source of inspiration when preparing for his role in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained."
"I listened to a lot of Biggie Smalls. Whenever there was a time when I was getting ready for my scene, I would play 'Dead Wrong' or 'Somebody’s Gotta Die,' so there would be things like that that I would just use as fuel," Foxx recently told Vanity Fair.
Wallace would have been 41.
