Did you know Warryn Campbell started his career at the age of 17 at Deathrow Records?

Why Suge Knight Body Slammed Warryn Campbell
Mind you Suge wasn’t a scary dude. He’s scary on TV he’s super nice, you don’t want to cross him. Only issue I had was he walked in the room and said ‘I give anyone $2,000 to wrestle me right now. So I was like ‘let’s go!’ He picks me up slams me on my back hard in the studio. Tupac’s laughing.I say ‘give me my money’ he was like ‘I ain’t giving you nothing’ and walks out. Everyone’s laughing at me. So I’m like, ‘I’m going to get my money.’ I don’t know what I was going to do. I walked out. I didn’t even say nothing to him. He said, ‘man I was just playing’ and he threw me a wad of cash. It was $6,000. I walk back in the room and everyone is like ‘wait a minute.’ It was nothing but because of that moment nobody ever bothered me over there.
When Are We Getting Another Mary Mary album?
I got one in the can that’s blazin. I mean we’ll see. When asked what is the hesitation in releasing it Warryn responded, why won’t Eddie Murphy do stand-up comedy? Cuz everybody wants you to do it makes it a little bit more fun that you don’t. My wife’s solo career is killin it so the brand is protected.They [Mary Mary] were able to stay in the limelight because they had 6/7 seasons of a reality show; first gospel group to do a reality show. When that was over we did one on TV One called ‘We’re The Campbell’s’ and then my wife is on the radio every morning 5 days a week.
