Do you remember Peedi Crakk? (Don’t worry, we didn’t either at first.)
To jog your Hip Hop recollection, Peedi Crakk was the North Philadelphian rapper who was down with the State Property fellas that brought you the hit “Pass the Patron” alongside Beanie Sigel, Diddy and Ghostface Killah.
If you also recall, Peedi Crakk disappeared from the game resurfacing with a few spotty appearances after State Property officially dissolved and the rapper’s label Def Jam and Roc-a-Fella Records formally split in two back in 2005.
Peedi then briefly became a free agent until Jay-Z, who would later became the president of Def Jam and maintaining the Roc-a-Fella catalogue at the label, signed him. Peedi began working on his debut album, Prince of the Roc, but it was continuously delayed. And of course, that’s partially where the drama began.
As tensions between he and Jay-Z became widespread music and entertainment news, Peedi added more fury to the fire with several diss tracks and mixtape appearances aimed at Jay-Z. Today, Peedi’s telling his side of the story as to why his album was delayed plus all the beef we didn’t hear about in the news as well as revealing how much he actually cost his boss and the record label. An estimated $900,000 of Def Jam’s money was wasted and Peedi is the only one responsible.Even just last fall, Jay-Z apparently cut Peedi off completely.
Peedi, who quite possibly may have new music projects in progress, had a great deal more to say this week about the discrepancy between he and his former boss.
