UpNorthTrips Presents The 10s | A Moment Of Silence  (RIP Scott La Rock)
Words by @evboogie/ Mix by @UNITEDCRATES
The only way to set this off is with a Rest In Power shout out to Scott La Rock. 25 years ago today, the rap game was indelibly changed by his senseless murder. By no means necessary did we put this mix together to celebrate his tragic passing, but to honor him alongside a collection of rap’s chosen who were taken from us far too soon. Our tribute is dedicated to all of the emcees that we’ve lost to meaningless gun violence. It is a sad and unfortunate thing that there are enough slain rappers to make a list of ten. Even sadder is as time goes on the list continues to grow. Let’s all have a moment of silence. [Read More…]

Calculating a Conspiracy. “9/13”

    Today is an important day for rap nerds like myself who fill their calendars up with specific dates of important anniversaries in Hip Hop’s history.  The thirteenth of September (9/13) is a bittersweet day, for anyone who ever heard a rap record. On the same date separated by two years, rap celebrated Notorious B.I.G’s triumphant arrival to the scene by debuting,"Ready To Die" and mourned the tragic, all-too-soon death of Tupac Shakur.  These two friends-turned-bitter rivals stood as flagship spokesman for their crews during the media-fueled coastal rap wars that took center stage in the late nineties.
        It wasn’t until this year that I paid enough attention to detail and realized that these two events occurred on the same day. It’s not as if we needed any more significant ties to connect the love/hate relationship that these two shared.  Writers have been drawing connections between their raps, their careers and their deaths, ad. infinitum. Articles, discoveries, inside investigations, and arguments have been done, done-over, and over done.  I was intrigued by the idea that two of our greatest rappers-turned-martyrs shared a date so personal. I was amazed that I never heard anyone else mention this useless tidbit of rap knowledge before. If they had, I probably just stashed it deep down in my memory, overshadowed by a list of Biggie and Pac coincidences that give rap journalists and conspiracy theorists boners.The more I tried not to think about it, the more I couldn’t stop thinking about it. 
    So I did what any other writer with too much time on their hands would do; I set off to find my own conspiracy. They said that numbers don’t lie, so let’s them do the talking.

Here are some cosmic coincidences that surround the numbers “9” “13” and “913

In the stars:
Astrologers believe that each number from 0 to 9 is ruled by a celestial body in our solar system, each number is represented by a planet, and in turn an astrology sign.  

1" - Aries ruled by Mars (Biggie’s Sign)
3" - Gemini ruled by Mercury (Pac’s Sign)

In the bible:
Biblical numerology refers to the interpretation, by some biblical scholars, of numerical values used in the New Testament that they believe relate to symbolism, which imply quality or attributes, of the value rather than to an actual quantity.

-The Biblical Meaning of the number 9 is judgment or finality. Basically, it’s used when judging man and all of his works. This number has also been used to describe the perfect movement of God.


-In Christian Numerology, the number 13 meaning deals with rebellion, corruption, abandonment, defection, revolution, to break or destroy.

Psalms 9:13 reads “O Lord, see how my enemies persecute me! Have mercy and lift me up from the gates of death”

In the Kabbalah:  The first word of the first verse of the first book of the Bible in Hebrew is bereishit, translated in English as “in the beginning”. Its Hebrew gematria* value is 913.
*-Gematria or gimatria (Hebrew: גימטריה‎ gēmaṭriyā) is a system of assigning numerical value to a word or phrase, in the belief that words or phrases with identical numerical values bear some relation to each other, or bear some relation to the number itself as it may apply to a person’s age, the calendar year, or the like. It is likely that the term derives from the order of the Greek alphabet, gamma being the third letter of the Greek alphabet (gamma + tria)”

In Language:
Numerology breaks down the language of numbers revealing a deeper meaning in words.

-The number combination 913: “九死一生” (gau sei yat saang in Cantonese) Is said to mean “Nine die to one live”, meaning 90% chance of being dead and only 10% chance of being alive, or survived from such situations (a narrow escape).”
In Chinese tradition, certain numbers are believed by some to be auspicious (吉利) or inauspicious (不利) based on the Chinese word that the number name sounds similar to. The numbers 6, 8, and are believed to have auspicious meanings because their names sound similar to words that have positive meanings.

In the Illuminati:
The secret society is believed to exist in a secret code of symbols numerology.
-9: The number nine is symbolic of divine completion and the number of the fall of man.

-13: The number thirteen is simultaneously a lucky and unlucky number.  It is considered to be a bad omen because the Knights Templars were arrested on October 13, 1307.  Thirteen is the number of a cult (there are 13 members in a covens and satanic cults (12 regular members and one high priest), which a mirrors of 12 jurors+1 judge.

In the cards: Tarot cards are a pack of playing cards (most commonly numbering 78), used from the mid-15th century in various parts of Europe. From the late 18th century until the present time the tarot has also found use by mystics and occultists in efforts at divination or as a map of mental and spiritual pathways.

-In a tarot card deck, XIII is the card of Death, usually picturing the Pale horse with its rider.

Other Facts:

-Biggie was killed on March 9th.

-Tupac was shot two separate occasions. He was shot five times in ‘94 (9+4=13) at Quad Studios, and four times on the Vegas Strip. 5+4=9
-Biggie started rapping when he was 13. (He states this in the second verse of the famous corner store freestyle in Bedstuy when he was 17)   “you know its me, the BIG, competition rapper ever since 13…”
-Tupac was shot on Sept. 7, but died 6 days later. 7+6=13

Fun With Numbers:
-9+1+3 = 13
-13x7=91, Pac and Biggie allegedly met in 1991.

-In a standard deck of cards there is 13 different numbers/letters Starting with the Ace going up to the King.
-Shaq recently shared with ESPN, that on the night Biggie was murdered, the two had planned to hang out, but Shaq overslept.  In the 1996 US Olympics, Shaq wore number 13
-Rearranging the numbers “913”, you get “139”.  139th Street is the Harlem Block on which Big L was murdered on.
