We sat in the corner of Gabriel Jacob's New York City store Rafaello & Co. surrounded by pictures of his famous clients. Signed portraits of Jay-Z & athletic jerseys adorned the walls. When Floyd Mayweather and a slew of other stars are itching for ice, they seek out Gabe. In his own words, he's a fifteen year overnight success finally reaping the rewards of his efforts. During our talk his phone wouldn't stop going off. But he picked up only one of the calls. He gestured for everyone to quiet down before putting the phone on speaker. "Hello?" he said. "Are you coming home?" a young voice asked on the other end. "Daddy is doing an interview" "Oh okay... well can I call you back? I have another call" Needless to say, we couldn't hold back the laughter. "Even my own daughter has to call me back because she has another call!" he said. The conversation sums up Gabe pretty well.

25 Surprising Real Names Of Your Favorite Rappers
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Most rappers don't go by their given names when they hit the stage, and often for good reason. Somehow chanting Trevor Smith instead of Busta Rhymes just doesn't feel right for the turn-up.  While some hip-hop icons break the mold by actually using the name their parents gave them, like Kanye West or Tupac Shakur, it doesn't work out that way for many of our favorite MCs. For some hip-hop heavyweights, their alter-egos carry more than just stage presence. Their chosen names may hold sentimental value or represent their brand, and a few have even changed their legal names to their stage personas. But even some of the most devoted hip-hop fans don't know the real names behind the rappers whose music they love. Some of these names you may already know while others might surprise you. Here's our list of the 25 most surprising name revelations, but for the definitive list of rappers' real names, click through the slideshow down below.  Also On HuffPost:  (function(){var src ...
