Method Man - The Riddler (RZA Production) (1995)

There wasn't a mix-tape or college radio show that wasn't playing this record at the time. This track definitely grew on me over time. As I listened to this track earlier today, I remembered what I was doing around that year this song was released, anyway this is off the "Batman Forever" Soundtrack.

O.C. featuring Jay-Z - Bonafied (Buckwild Production) (2001)

This is in my opinion one of the most slept of tracks from O.C. A bonus track off of his "Bon Appetit" album, O.C. does his thing as usual. This time around he got a little help with Jay-Z on the hook. Bonafied classic !!!

Poor Righteous Teachers featuring Nine - Gods, Earths And 85ers (1996)

Another hip hop group from Trenton, New Jersey, PRT released the fourth and final album in 1996, "The New World Order," Another underground classic still bringing the musical content inspired by the teachings of the Nation of Gods and Earths, PRT in my opinion is very underrated for the contributions they brought to Hip Hop.

Chino XL - Ghetto Vampire (1996)

Coming out of New Jersey, Chino XL is mostly known by the calling out made by 2pac at the end of "Hit Em Up." Chino released his debut album in 1996 called "Here to Save You All" dismissing the commercialized hip hop that was starting to gain momentum at this time. The debut was released to critical acclaims. One of the tracks that caught my attention at the time was "Ghetto Vampire" the word play and creativity on the record is crazy.

Mysonne, 8ball, & Ma$e - Do What Playas Do

This was one of my favorite tracks off of The 1999 Violators compilations album, Here we have Bronx native Mysonne, Memphis, Tennessee rapper 8-ball from the group 8-Ball and MJG and Harlem finest Mase.  Rhyming over a smooth laid back beat.

F.Y.I  Mase was going at Jay-Z with his verse for a song Jay-Z made dissing Mase on the track called "Ride or Die" on Jay-Z's Vol 2. Hardknock Life

Queen Latifah ft. Treach, Heavy D & the Boyz and KRS-One- Rough

Straight out of the boom bap era of 1993, came Queen Latifah's album, "Black Reign" which in my opinion is one of her best albums ever. To be honest I literally played the cassette tape out until the magnetic tape popped. Yes I said cassette tape !!! "Black Reign" is definitely an album a hip hop purist should have in there collection.

Download link: Rough

Jay-z - ft. Lord Tariq & Nas- Analyze This

I heard this back in 1996 on a mixtape, originally found on Shaq's third album " Can't Stop the Reign," featured a song called "No Love Lost" with Lord Tariq and Jay-z but no Nas. There has been disputes if this record was a mix put together by a DJ or actually early recording before it got on shaq's album. Either way this is hot record with 3 ill mc's on it.

Percee P, Eminem and Fat Joe trading verses

Rare freestyle with Fat Joe, Percee P. and Eminem. Why is eminem and percee P. rhyming in a restroom??? *scratches head*

Either way this is hot!

Aceyalone "Mic Check"

This is one of my all time favorite songs, I remember repeating the hook through out the day after I heard it. Coming out of Los Angeles, California, Aceyalone released his debut album, " All Balls Don't Bounce," in 1995. His lyrical performance established him as one of the more popular underground rappers in Los Angeles. At a time most California Hip Hop artists were focusing on Gangsta rap, he instead focused on innovative lyricism. He made a name for himself in the underground hip hop scene in Cali.

Royal Flush Ft Noreaga - Iced Down Medallions

This record was a street banger back in 1997, Royal Flush released his debut album "Ghetto Millionaire" which is another classic in my opinion with tight productions from E.Z.

Ras Kass - Home Sweet Home

"Home sweet Home" was supposed to be the lead single for Ras Kass's 1999 unreleased Album "Von Gogh." The Alchemist produced the beat for Ras Kass but only received the first half of the payment for the beat, Ras Kass' record label was ignoring him when Alchemist was asking for the second half of the payment. Alchemist later informed Ras Kass that he sold the beat to Jadakiss because Alchemist couldn't get a hold of Ras Kass or his label. Jadakiss would then go on to record "We Gonna Make It" over the same beat, on his 2001 release, "Kiss Tha Game Goodbye"

Jay-Z, DMX, and Ja Rule together again on a track (just to remind ya'll all 3 artists did a record together in the past with Mic Geronimo on "Time to Build" early in their careers, check my Mic Geronimo blog!!!!) They were the original Murder Inc.

Organized Konfusion - Stray Bullet

Off of Organized Konfusion's (consisting of Prince Po and Pharoahe Monch) 1994 second album; Stress: The Extinction Agenda. This is a concept track which sees the group describing the travels of a stray bullet in first-person narrative. Many argue that Nas copied the concept with the song "I Gave You Power" on his 1996 classic "It Was Written." Personally I Think Nas's version was way more descriptive. But this is still a great record.

Outkast - Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik

I just felt like taking it down to the ATL for minute with Outkast's debut album "Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik" which came out in 1994. To be honest I fronted on their earlier material but I quickly realized that these dudes are true to the hip hop culture. I definitely respect what they have done in the past few years. Their influential in deed.

Lost Boyz ft. Canibus & Tha Dogg Pound - Music Makes Me High (Remix) - 1996

This is one my favorite records for one, the beat is a banger and second for the simple fact it's showing East/West coast love with Lost Boyz ft. Tha Dogg Pound and again Canibus did his thing. This is the remix so you wont find this song on the 1995 "Legal Drug Money" album

Lost Boyz Ft. A+, Redman and Canibus - Beast From The East

The posse-cut "Beasts From The East", featuring Lost Boyz, A+, Redman and Canibus is crazy. The year was 1997 and Canibus was the talk of the industry. I first heard this on a mix-tape and felt this was one of the hottest posse-cuts I heard in along time. " A MC so ill I got AIDS scared to catch me" that was a hot line from Canibus.

Jeru The Damaja - Come Clean

Straight from Brooklyn N.Y. His first album, "The Sun Rises in the East", was released in 1994 and produced entirely by DJ Premier. (Are ya'll seeing a pattern now?) The album is a underground classic til this day. It is considerably significant in hip hop, as it contributed to the revival of the East Coast hip hop scene with the single "Come Clean" which had a lot of heads nodding to the beat.

This record is also off of "The Sun Rises in the East." This was an cool record on his perspective on those not so wonderful women, we all know at least one or two of them. I liked the vibe this track brought to the table so I wasn't surprised when one of Hip Hop's biggest superstars paid homage. I guess you can call it that and made his 2002 version...

Kool G Rap - Brother On The Run

Considered by many as The Godfather of Hip Hop, Kool G. paved the way for a lot of MCs who we would not have heard of otherwise. Kool G Rap excelled at the street narrative, a style that would come to define later Queens MCs like Nas (who was hugely influenced by G Rap on his early records) and Mobb Deep.

He has also been cited as a major influence to some of hip-hop's most critically acclaimed figures such as Eminem, Nas, Jay Z, and Big Pun.

Common - Resurrection

Like Common said, "They call me Chi-Town's Nas." I respect his art and style because he never followed trends and compromised what he stood for through out the years and he stayed true to himself, something that can't be said for a lot of artists nowadays.

This record is off of Common's 1994 album "Resurrection" Critics believe that "Resurrection" belongs amongst Illmatic, by Nas, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), by Wu-Tang Clan, and Ready to Die, by the Notorious B.I.G."

Nas Ft. Bravehearts and 50 cent- Who U Rep With

I first heard both records on one of DJ Clue's "Hev. E. Components" series either part 1 or 2 back in 2001. Nas definitely helped 50 cent along the way early in his 50's career. They need to put together their differences mainly on 50's part and get in the studio together and make some new songs.

Here is the other record that was also on the Clue tape, this song is featuring Nature and 50 cent.

Souls Of Mischief - 93 'till Infinity

A hip hop group from Oakland, California, that is also part of the hip hop collective Hieroglyphics. 93 'til Infinity is often heralded as the best album to come out of the West. I loved the production on this album as well thanks in part to rapper/producer Domino and Del the Funky Homosapien. It brought that funk and jazz sound to the music. Til this day I listen to the album.

Heather B. - Da Heartbreaka

From Jersey City, New Jersey. Heather B is most well known for being a cast member on The Real World: New York, the first season of MTV's reality show The Real World. In 1996 she released her first album, "Takin' Mine" and all I can say is her album is a banger from beginning to the end, no fillers just straight up hip hop music. I first heard of her on a DJ SNS mixtape and I thought to myself "who is this chick, she's hot." When the album came out you better believe I was first to cop it.

Jemini The Gifted One - Brooklyn Kids

Straight head nodding, tim boot wearing, champion hoodie music right here. Hailing out of Brooklyn, Jemini dropped this record back in 1994 if my memory serves me correct. I remember hearing this track on a Stretch Armstrong mix-tape and had this track on repeat. Some argue that this is just one of the many greatest underground joints !!

EPMD Feat. K-Solo & Redman - The Head Banger

This is one of my all time favorite records, off of the 1992 "Business Never Personal" album, EPMD featured verses from K-Solo and Redman, both members of EPMD's rap collective, The Hit Squad. The song was later sampled itself by the Ruff Ryders on "Ryde or Die", which served as the opening song on their debut album, Ryde or Die Vol. 1

Jay-Z & Sauce Money - All About The Benjamins freestyle (1997)

Yo I remember this freestyle like it was yesterday off of DJ Clue's "Show Me the Money" mixtape and you better believe I still have the tape in my collection. "You must be chinese they way you duck sauce,"  that line single handily generated his buzz in the streets. As one of the original members of Rocafella, he released one album entitled " Middle Finger U"

Oh by the way Sauce Money won a Grammy for writing Puff Daddy's tribute to The Notorious B.I.G., "I'll Be Missing You".

Redman - Funkorama

"Funkorama" is a 1995 single by Redman. It was produced by Redman and co-produced by Erick Sermon for Sermon's "Insomnia" a compilation album. This is the Redman i'm used to listening to before he became comical with his style.

Fat Joe Ft Big Pun, Raekwon and Armageddon - Fire Water

Originally off of Fat Joe's single "Envy" there was a b-side single called "Fire Water" which was released in 1996. This record help put Pun's name out in the mainstream and garnered his buzz. I remember this record being played on a lot of mixtapes at the time.

Beanie Sigel - The Truth

I had this track on repeat when I had it on a one of my many mixtapes, it's sad that now Beanie is no longer cool with Jay-Z however while on The Roc, beanie made a few banging records. Oh by the way that's Kanye West who made this beat.

Pete Rock & CL Smooth - Take You There

I love this group, Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth, hailing from Mount Vernon N.Y. always brought that soulful and Jazz sound into Hip Hop and they did it very well. "The Main Ingredient" is the second album by Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Released in late 1994 where this track is from.

Download link : Take You There

As I'm blogging about Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth, Pete Rock's 1997 solo album came to mind, "Soul Survivor." In my opinion it's more of a compilation CD featuring various artist and exclusive production from Pete Rock. It's a tightly put together album none the less and to my surprise since albums following this type of format usually has one or two songs worth listening to but this wasn't the case with Pete Rock's album, solid production and tight lyrics from the likes of Method Man, Large Professor, Prodigy of Mobb Deep and Sticky Fingas to name a few made this a classic album.

Just one of the many favorite tracks off of the Soul Survivor album...

Real Live Ft Capone of Capone and Noreaga and Tragedy khadafi

This is a rare remix to get your hands on. This single from New Jersey group, Real Live. Consisting of K-Def (Producer/DJ) and Larry-O. They released one album in 1996 titled The Turnaround: A Long Awaited Drama on Big Beat/Atlantic Record. This album had a little underground buzz at the time. If the name K-Def sounds familiar then it should. He produced for a lot artists ranging from Monie Love in 1993 to Mr. P.Diddy himself in 2006.

Twista - Mr. Tung Twista

Debuted as Tung Twista in 1991 with Runnin' Off at da Mouth, he dropped "Tung" from his stage name in 1996. Twista once held the title of fastest rapper in the world: according to the Guinness World Records in 1992.

In 1997, Twista arguably released one of his best albums to date called "Adrenaline Rush" his third studio album with very little airplay outside of the midwest with no surprise it went gold. At one point Dame Dash was looking to sign him to Rocafella records in 2003, but the deal didn't go through.

Prince Rakeem (RZA) - Oooh We Love You Rakeem

The year is 1991, before he formed the Wu-Tang Clan and went by the name RZA, he was known as Prince Rakeem signed to Tommy Boy records he released this single, obviously the single didn't do so well so he had to go back to Staten Island to regroup and the rest well is history.

Mobb Deep - Hit It From The Back

Mobb Deep's second single off of their 1993 debut album "Juvenile Hell" at the ages of 15, theses dude were telling people which position they preferred lol.

Group Home - Suspended In Time

In 1995, Group Home released its debut album, Livin' Proof. The album was very well received, mainly due to DJ Premier's advanced production work. By now if you been following my posts you will notice a pattern that DJ Premier had major influences in hip hop in the early to mid 90's, he practically produced for every artist at the time. Well here is another gem that's off of the album," Supa Star" which appeared on tons of mixtapes as well.

O.C. - My World

The year was 97, when O.C. released his second album "Jewelz" — another critically acclaimed effort that kept O.C. headed in the right direction and featured collaborations with DJ Premier, Da Beatminerz and Freddie Foxxx. Down with the D.I.T.C. (Diggin in the Crates) crew which consisted of Lord Finesse, Showbiz & A.G., Diamond D, Buckwild, Fat Joe and Big L, O.C. made a name for himself.

Download link: My World

This is where it started back in 94. "Time's Up" went hard at the time.(matter a fact, this record is just as relevant now as it was back then) A classic indeed, off of the debut underground album titled "Word..Life." For the young bucks out there the instrumental to this track was used for a battle scene in Eminem's movie 8 Mile.

Mic Geronimo "Shit's Real"

One of Irv's first artists back when Irv went by DJ Irv minus the gotti. He helped put on Mic Geronimo in 94 and made the classic album, "The Natural" The album also featured a young Jay-Z, DMX, and Ja Rule on a track called "Time to Buiild"

It's crazy how all these artists blew up and became superstars in their own right except for Mic Geronimo smh

Fat Joe - Shit Is Real

Man this is Fat Joe at his finest in my opinion when he went by Fat Joe Da Gangsta but I have to admit a lot of artists at the time especially in '94 and '95 had songs along the lines expressing how real sh!t was. lol This is off of his debut album "Represent" which can be considered an underground classic.

Spice 1 - Hard To Kill ft. Method Man

I thought I would continue in the Bay Area with Spice 1. This record goes hard man and It was one of those tracks that featured an east coast artist, Mr. Method Man. Who said there was an east coast, west coast beef at the time?? This is off of "Amerikkka's Nightmare" arguably one of the best west coast albums in 94, followed up after Dr Dre's "The Chronic" and Snoop Doggs "Doggystyle"

E-40 Dusted N Digusted ft. 2pac and Spice1

Let take it to the Bay Area with E-40 for a minute. This was one of my favorite tracks off of E-40's official debut album in 95 "In a major way." This track features none other than Spice 1 and 2pac. Three influential west coast artists repping it hard.

Large Professor - Stay Chisel Feat. Nas

Ahhhh man this is my sh!t!!!! Large P is one of those underrated artists/producers. He made some classic records for Nas, Busta Rhymes, Masta Ace, Mobb Deep and other artists in the 90's. He was even a mentor to a young Havoc of Mobb Deep when it came to the beat making. He even help discover Nas with with his group Main Source with the Hip Hop classic " Live at the bbq."

"Street's disciple/ my raps are trifle/ I shoot slugs from my brain just like a rifle" - Nas.
I will never forget that line.

Shyheim - Shit Iz Real

Off of the second album "The Lost Generation" Shyheim came back with a strong single, holding it down for the Wu. Matter of fact he was the youngest Wu member who shared the stage in Madison Square Garden with the like of Big, Pac, and Big Daddy Kane in '95 just to name a few.
Here is another classic song from '93, "One's 4 the money" (Clean Version)

Nate Dogg - One More Day

Damn, I can't believe that he's gone. When he appeared on Snoop's "Doggystyle" album - "It ain't no fun" ah man I was a young dude singing along to his verse, I had that song on repeat for quite sometime. Even though it was very explicit I felt he was a good story teller but when he broke through with Warren G with "Regulators," that song propelled his career from there on out. You will be missed homie.

Run DMC ft Nas and Prodigy of Mobb Deep - Queens Day

Nice track off of Run Dmc's final album "Crown Royal" featuring Nas Esco and Prodigy of Mobb Deep. This track just popped up in my head, I haven't heard it in awhile besides I am down with the king...

This was my sh*t in 1993, the video has various hip hop artists who showed up on set to show Run Dmc love. Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth definitely represented on this one with their features y'all!! (peep Eazy- E, Kris kross, Redman, Treach from Naughty by Nature and Onyx in the video just to name a few.)

Sonja Blade - Look For Tha Name (Prod. by DJ Premier)

Another femcee out of brooklyn made her break through on a few mixtapes building her underground buzz. Look 4 Tha Name’ produced by Dj Premier was a smash hit. (I love how the beat switches). It introduced Ms. Blade to the entire world and Dj’s such as Kay Slay, Dj Absolut, Kid Capri and many others took notice of the single and started to give it serious airplay.

Download link: Look For Tha Name

Paula Perry - Paula's Jam

A member of Masta Ace's I.N.C. (The original Inc). The Queen of Fort Greene made some noise in the early to late 90's. She had the underground buzzing with this record. Paula is no joke on the mic, I wish she had the machine behind her to push her career further but either way she have a few classics under her belt.

Masta Ace Inc - Ya' Hardcore (1995)

I heard this song when my cousin made me a copy of a DJ SNS mixtape back in 1995, I don't remember the name of the actual tape however I do remember voice samples through out the tape saying " hit me over the head n*&&a." This was one of the songs on the tape and I had this on repeat for months. Eminem mentions Masta Ace as one of his influences in his book "The Way I Am", saying, “Masta Ace had amazing storytelling skills – his thoughts were so vivid”

The Last Emperor - Secret Wars part 1 and 2

Straight of out Philly, Last Emperor was one of the early acts that signed to Dre's label Aftermath Records, releasing his underground hit Secret Wars 1 and 2. This was a very creative song at the time, being that I am hip hop fanatic and I love Marvel comics (yeah I am a nerd) This is for those hip hop/comic book lovers out there.

Here is a link to a cool interview with Last Emperor dated a few years back in 2003.... Last Emperor - "Rhyme Wars: The Emperor Strikes Back"

Talib Kweli & Hi-Tek (Reflection Eternal) - The Blast

These two make good music together, it came out at a good time when a lot of bulls*t was flooding the airwaves. The Blast is of off "Train of Thought" the debut album. I love the vibe on the album. With Kweli's deep thoughts and Hi-Teks high tempo, neo soul sound they made an instant classic.

Biggie Smalls freestyling at The Wake Up Show 1994

"The Greatest rapper of all time..." My boy Canibus said it best. I wish BIG was still here man. He single handily change the course of hip hop with the "Ready to Die" album.

Alchemist feat Nas & Prodigy - Tick Tock

This is a personal favorite of mines, the track is so smooth and gutter at the same time. Of course Alchemist is behind the boards with this one. This is off of Alchemist first compilation album called "1st Infantry." Nas and Prodigy on the same track, certified street banger !!!

Prodigy of Mobb Deep - Nickel and Nail

The Return of the Mac is one of those slept on albums that was fully produced by The Alchemist. Prodigy resolidified the Mobb after the G-Unit debacle, bringing that gritty NY sound back.

Prodigy of Mobb Deep - Keep It Thoro

Welcome home "P." Good to see him back on the streets, this classic joint is off of the H.N.I.C. album. "heavy airplay all day with no chorus"

Jay-Z - I Can't Get Wit That/ In My Life Time.

1994 was a great year for hip hop, here we have a very young Jay-Z kiliing with flow which he was known for at the time. Jay-Z definitely earned his spot as a major figure in hip hop. Below is another classic which was found on a lot of mixtapes circulating in 95.

Boot Camp Click- Headz Ain't Redee (Original Version)

Boot Camp Click is still doing it til this day, It all started in 92 with Blackmoon when they debut with the album "Enta Da Stage" and introduced the world to Smif N Wessun, followed by Heltah Skeltah, and then finally O.G.C. (Originoo Gun Clappaz). I always considered them the Brooklyn equivalent of The Wu. Here is the original version to the 1993 underground classic, "Headz Ain't Redee" which is actually 9 mins long!!!!

(Doesn't the beat sound familiar, well Mr. P. Diddy and his Hitmen at the time sampled it and made the 1995 hit song, "Can't You See" - Total ft. The Notorious B.I.G.)

Smif-N-Wessun - Wreckonize (Remix)

I love this song man, it bring back memories. This is the remix version off of their debut album "Dah Shinin" which is an underground classic. Smif N Wessun reppin Bucktown all day!!!!

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

Common - Be

What more can I say about this song, yo this is a classic off of Common's "Be" album matter of fact, the entire album is a classic, the sixth studio album released back in 2005. Man I remember when the album came out. I heard a few cuts of the album from mixtapes and I liked what I heard so I took the chance and bought the album, however before I bought it, I noticed the CD only had 11 songs on it. I thought to myself like this better be worth it. (no pun intended) especially at the time when a lot of artists released CD's that had 20 songs on it and you may end up listening to only 5 songs. Anyway, after I purchased the CD, I popped it into my player and instantly I said to myself, Common got another classic under his belt.

Milkbone - Keep It Real

A Naughty by Nature discovery, dude was one of the few white rappers who seemed to have any credibility and had the respect at the time. I love this beat til this day, especially when a young Jay-z and Big L made that classic 7 minute freestyle over the exact same beat back in 95. See below

Rakim Allah Freestyle

" I don't go on tour, I go to war" Rakim Allah-The GOD MC

Thursday, February 24, 2011

Rakim - "Microphone Fiend" / Slaughterhouse -"Microphone"

"The invincible microphone fiend Rakim." Rakim's rhyming deviated from the simple rhyme patterns of the early 1980s hip hop. His style and flow inspired a whole new breed of mc's that followed after him. (ex: Nas, Az,Raekwon, eminem etc) He single handily change the game.

Below I have Slaughterhouse's version "Microphone" This is obviously a homage to Rakim's "Microphone Fiend" This team is something serious, I'm always excited to hear what they come up with. Their definitely a group you have to look out for.

Rather Unique - AZ

My favorite AZ song ever, this track turned me into an instant fan, The first time I heard this was on a DJ SNS mixtape...memories. This is some classic sh*t right here!

Nas feat Hip Hop All Stars - Where Are They Now (90's Remix)

This was a good look for Nas when he made the "Where are they now" remix asking where were some of 90's popular rappers of the time and they answered back. This is one of my favorite records of 2006. He followed it up with the "Where are they now 80's" and the west coast version as well.

Ghosface Killah - Ghost deini (unreleased version)

Jadakiss Freestyle (He Goes In)

Nothing for me to say, top 5 dead or alive, now you know why, Kiss is a beast!!

Snoop Dogg & Tray Dee - 21 Jumpstreet

Lets swing over to California for a minute when Deathrow was a major force in the game. This track is off of the "Murder Was the Case" Soundtrack. There was some heat on here. I loved this song because it had that smooth laid back feel and of course snoop did his thing as always,anytime I heard this I pictured myself gangsta leaning in my hooptie. lol

Eminem & Royce Da 5'9 - Renegades (Original Version)

Here is the original version of Renegades, the song that was found on Jay-Z's classic album "The Blue Print"  uh Jay did his thing but the record just didn't fit him in my opinion, this is why it sounds like Eminem murdered him on his own sh*t, Am I right ya'll? Em and Royce need to finally do a Bad meets Evil album your fans are waiting.

Download link :Renegades (Original Version)

Slick Rick - Sitting In My Car (Original Version)

This joint right here is a rare one indeed, this is from his 1994 album "Behind Bars" even though it was a single it was remixed by Jermaine Dupri  (the remixed version is easier to find) who I felt didn't do the song any justice. I personally feel the original version is better especially with Doug E Fresh beat boxing, It brought back that late 80's sound.

Sorry for the quality my blackberry don't take the best videos as you can see but I did enjoy myself and saw Slick Rick perform as well as Special Ed. Mc Serch from 3rd Bass or for those under 26 will know him better from the White Rapper Show was also there as well djing. I wish there were more shows like this. *sigh*

Cypress Hill ft. Erick Sermon, Redman & MC Eiht - Throw Your Hands In Th...

This song had me hyped when I saw the video on Rap City when Joe Clair used to host the show remember those days? That may reveal my age, well this was a good look for hip hop with east and west coast artists collaborating to make a classic. Enjoy the video.

Notorious B.I.G. ft L.O.X. (Funk Flex freestyle rare circa 1997)

This is a one of those rare moments from biggie and the lox of off the funkmaster flex's: 60 mins of funk volume 2, I still listen to this mix tape from time to time. Damn I miss biggie, Bad Boy had it locked back in the days.
