Nuff' respect

Our one deviation on this website from our Residents/Ralph mission.

Indeed, I have nicked my name from the Notorious B.I.G. And though I've done that, it is not meant in any way to disrespect Biggie or Hip Hop in general. Our focus here is on other things, of course, but I(E.Y.E.) and I(gor) truly enjoy a lot of it, including B.I.G. (Tho we both admit that we have a preference for a lot of the late '80s / early '90s stuff when it was developing a conscience.)

Anyway, in that spirit, I thought a little page here would help make that point clear, in case some Biggie fans stumble upon this from search engines & wonder "what the fuck is this?" (which Igor says the website stats show HAS happened a whole bunch of times). With that in mind, E.Y.E. and Igor give props to some of the stuff they enjoy.
