1. He’s a member of Junior M.A.F.I.A.
Nino Brown, 49, is a member of the legendary rap collective Junior M.A.F.I.A. (Masters At Finding Intelligent Attitudes), and has been since 1994. The group is divided into The 6s (Lil’ Cease, Bugsy, Capone, Chico, and Nino) and The Snakes (Larceny and Trife), along with MC Klepto, Lil’ Kim, and of course, The Notorious B.I.G. They were all under the age of 20 when they formed the group. Biggie served as their “godfather” and mentor of all the artists until his death in 1997.
2. He was childhood friends with Notorious B.I.G.
Everyone in The 6s knew Biggie before he was rapping, and that included Nino. In 2003, an unpublished Biggie interview resurfaced, and it said that he was going to retire from rapping in 2000 to focus on helping his friends’ careers.
3. He has two daughters
Nino is the proud father of twin girls with his partner/”other half” Ebony Jones. His daughters are Madison and Kimora, and he posts tons of photos of the adorable eight-year-old girls on Instagram. So cute!

4. He’s not keeping up with the Kardashians
Nino really doesn’t like the Kardashian sisters. Nino ranted in a Facebook video about the Kardashian Curse, claiming that all the sisters — Kim Kardashian, 36, and her sisters Kourtney, 39, and Khloe, 32 — are “bad luck” for men. Rude. He called Kim a “non-talented b***h” who ruined Ray J‘s career, and blamed Khloe for Lamar Odom‘s drug addiction issues. This is crazy!
5. He has a new album out
Nino has a solo album that dropped in 2016: Grapes. The cover art is a naked woman feeding him a bunch of grapes while he’s wearing a purple suit. As the liner notes say: “Nino Brown is the best rapper to ever come out of Miami.”
