    All in pursuit of the "Glamorous Life"
    DAMN HOMIE!!!
    Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell signed the execution warrant yesterday (Jan. 9) for former Philadelphia rapper Christopher "Cool C" Roney. Roney, 36, is currently an inmate at Pennsylvania's State Correctional Institution at Greene and is set to die by lethal injection on March 9 ("The day the music died"- R.I.P. Notorious B.I.G. ). In October 1996, Roney was found guilty of first-degree murder in the killing of Philadelphia police officer Lauretha Vaird during a botched Jan. 1996 bank robbery that included rap partner Warren "Steady B" McGlone and a third man. Roney was a member of rap crew The Hilltop Hustlers in the late 1980s and helped put Philly rappers on the map with singles such as 1989's "Glamorous Life."

    I ain't gonna lie, "Glamorous Life" can STILL get the party live after all these years!


    FYI:
    (For my people that just started listening to Hip Hop)

    A member of Philadelphia's Hilltop Hustlers crew, Cool C's (Christopher Roney) laid-back and stoned rhymes are best heard on the 1989 singles "I Gotta Habit" and "Glamorous Life" -- the latter of which liberally sampled Sheila E.'s song of the same title. His 1987 debut single gained him a good amount of attention and caught a lot of ears: "Juice Crew Dis" took aim at the New York-based crew run by influential producer Marley Marl (a group that included heavyweights Kool G. Rap and Big Daddy Kane). A pair of 1988 singles for Hilltop and City Beat landed him a contract with Atlantic, where he released his two full-length solo records, 1989's I Gotta Habit and 1990s Life in the Ghetto. A couple years later, he put his solo career aside to join C.E.B. with Ultimate Eaze and Steady B. The trio released 1993's Countin' Endless Bank on Ruffhouse. ~ Andy Kellman

      It wasn't a fluke they robbed several banks, but when C decided to shoot the woman cop, and Stead started snitchin, it was a wrap. My favorite tune was "Get the Point" when they created CEB. sad story in hop hop.

      Do you think they are gonna kill him? I read somewhere [one of the dealth penalty in America sites] that a stay of execution is likely. I wonder what the grounds would be. I haven't read/heard any jail house interviews from him or Steady B. I wonder what their lives are like...what they think about all this? Is he even asking for clemancy?
