41. XXXtra Manish, Little Bruce
Little Bruce is a national treasure, motherfucker. His history dates back to 1990 when he recorded a diss towards Mac Dre in the hopes of getting noticed as an upcoming rapper. It worked, and since him and Dre lived in rival neighborhoods anyway, Dre recorded a response. Bruce is E-40’s cousin and signed to Sick Wid It, but by being a self-proclaimed “loose cannon,” he was considered a liability and they dropped him once the distribution deal with Jive was set in motion.
No matter, though—XXXtra Manish is still fire. Favorites include “Mobbin’ In My Old School” and “Fuck Little Bruce,” but his rap career proved short-lived. Like Suga Free, the pimp game kept calling him back, and lord knows it pays better than the rap game.
