Junior M.A.F.I.A. were a hip hop group from NYC that formed in 1994. They are probably best known for their affiliation with rap icon, The Notorious B.I.G., and for the singles "Get Money" and "Player's Anthem", both of which broke the Billboard top 20. In fact, "Player's Anthem" remains their best selling single in their catalog, reaching number 5 on the Billboard charts. Their 1995 album, "Conspiracy", reached number 1 on the Billboard, and eventually went gold. However, Junior M.A.F.I.A. ended up splitting in 1997 due to the tragic murder of The Notorious B.I.G., probably due to the fact that the rapper was the true backbone of the Junior M.A.F.I.A. name. After the breakup, member Lil' Kim went on to become one of the best selling female emcees of all time, selling an impressive total of over 10 million records worldwide. In 2005, Junior M.A.F.I.A. attempted a comeback, with the release of their 2005 album, "Riot Musik". The lineup trimmed down to a trio, versus the original ten-member lineup. The revival of Junior M.A.F.I.A. also did not include Lil' Kim, for unknown reasons. Commercially, the "Riot Musik" album ended up selling extremely poorly, especially when compared to the "Conspiracy" record, and Junior M.A.F.I.A. ended up splitting once more in 2008. « hide
