Spoonie Gee (Treacherous 3) homeless in Miami?!?!

So a good friend of mine told me this crazy story the other night while in downtown Miami. This is true by the way.

Last week after the Dunk Exchange (sneaker expo) there was an after party at Club Space. Fat Joe was hosting it, blah blah. Space is located on the edge of Overtown which contains one of the biggest homeless communities in Miami. Anytime you go there to park on surrounding streets there is always some bum who is ''selling'' you a parking space. haha, really it's free parking, but you should always hook the bum up with a dollar or two to watch your shit. Usually he watches the whole street full of cars.

Well, my boy Derek bought a parking space from muthafucking Spoonie Gee!!! After getting out of his car and exchanging small talk, Spoonie realized Derek was into Hip Hop and introduced himself. My boy is like, ''yeaaah right''. Then at this point of a few, ''nah..man..it's me!!. ''C'mon man, it's ME!''. Spoonie bust a rap with the signature voice, ''One for the treble, two for the bass..''. At this point Derek is convinced and starts to really get into a conversation about where Spoonie Gee has been these last 20 years some of these facts were presented.

Spoonie use to have it all: Money, cars, women..he even owned a very successful club in NYC. Spoonie slipped up. We don't know what happened but he ended up in prison these past 20 years. He said he killed two guys while in prison who tried to rape him. Spoonie likes Jay-Z. Spoonie said the only person who showed him ''real'' love was Doug E. Fresh.

I mean Derek and Spoonie were really getting into it. Nobody fucking cares about this guy, you know? My boy Derek is such an old school cat and to recognize him and talk to him he had Spoonie on a natural high. Once time passed Derek offered him to come inside the club to continue their conversation. Spoonie agrees. Spoonie is dressed a little bummy so my man Derek hooks him up with a hat and a shirt is had laying around in his car. They proceed into to club. After mingling around and saying whats up, Fat Joe sees Spoonie and gets him on stage!!! Fat Joe lets all the party people know they are in a presence of a legend.

It seems though, Spoonie is not in good shape. He is hooked on something, and living in Overtown..most likely crack. Spoonie kept that addict mentality and was asking people for money in the club in exchange for a rap. At this time it became very sad and apparent that the man was not who he was 20 years ago.

We are gonna go find a round two soon and locate him. I really want to catch a video interview with him...maybe even get him in the studio for a couple hours.soooooo

STAY TUNED!

I met the same guy and had seen him various times hanging around the outside of Club Space. Never believed it was really him, you'd be amazed what kind of stories homeless people will concoct just to get some spare change. If it was truly him it is a very sad story indeed.

Next time ask him what his real name is. Should be Gabriel Jackson. Also the real Spoonie Gee released an EP in 2005 named "The Boss Is Back".

Id be intersted to know if this is Spoonie. I sampled some of his vocals and used them in a dance track back in 95/96. It started to get played a lot in the clubs and on the radio. I called his label to see if he wanted to do some more stuff. The head of the label told me he was doing time and wouldnt be out for a very long time. He wouldnt go into details. I think this could be Spoonie. If he is on the rocks its a shame, hes a genius.

This is too funny! I just ran into this guy tonight. My bro Keen-One was like "Dude, thats really him!" We caught a 3-4 minute set on camera and a few photos. If this is really him, no one has given him love yet? I had to google it because I am still in disbelief.

Man I just me this dude outside of Ceviche 105 across from Bayside, same as another person posted a while back. He started with some crazy story then said google me --- you'll see it's me. He went on about a story with Doug E Fresh, then be busted out a few lyrics. Poor guy...crazy thing is, he was really humble and thankful. Felt bad for the guy.
