About Junior M.A.F.I.A.
Junior M.A.F.I.A. was a large Brooklyn crew put on by the Notorious B.I.G. Their first and only album, Conspiracy (1995), contained the hits "Player's Anthem," "Need You Tonight," and Biggie and Lil' Kim's classic "Get Money." With flashy money/sex/drugs rhymes laid over catchy production from Clark Kent, EZ Elpee, and others, the M.A.F.I.A. fit right in with the emerging gangsta-glam movement coming out of NYC. Lil' Kim went on to become a star in her own right, releasing two platinum albums during the following five years. Lil' Cease's 1999 solo effort went largely unnoticed, and the other Mafiosi have since faded from the spotlight.
