Grimy North VS. Dirty South

Theodore Bone Crusher – Who Are We?

(391 views?! This youtube is some bullshit edit, but that Theodore Unit album had tracks. Ghost and Trife throwing darts over a grimy beat, grimier chorus provided by Bonecrusher.)

Mobb Deep f. Eightball – Where Ya From

(Laidback New York traditionalism, but Eighball seems well and comfortable in the mix.)

Fat Joe Big Pun Eightball – Heavyweights

(Huge beat. Pun’s verse is like the foulest ever.)

Cormega f. Lil Wayne – Who Can I Trust?

(True to his renegade nature Mega collaborated with Lil Wayne way back when he wasn’t even hot.)

Outkast f. Raekwon – Skew It On The Bar-B

Big Boi ft. Andre 3000 & Raekwon – Royal Flush

(“When the South was down, Rae was there for them. A lot of shit that I do, it just happens. How that Outkast shit jumps off is I’m pushing through the mall in the A, and I see the kid. And its like respect, kings respect kings. And we just got in the studio, I liked the niggas as individuals, and they looked at me the same way. We made history.“)

50 Cent Bun B – As The World Turns

(Bun B’s best song with an East Coast rapper? Or the one below?)

Jay-Z f. UGK – Big Pimping

Kool G Rap f. Killer Mike, Bun B – Real OG’s

(Tuff song I never see mentioned. From G Rap’s tape on G-Unit.)

Kool G Rap f. Ice Cube Geto Boys – Two To The Head

(These days collabos rarely come out this raw.)

Freeway f. Scarface – Baby Don’t Do It

(Listening to this daily, preferably on repeat. Scarface, best flow ever here.)

Gang Starr f. Scarface – Betrayal

(Premier at his best, ditto the storytelling.)

Ghostface f. Scarface – Face Off

(Would like a more official collabo between the greats, in the meantime this will do.)

Jay-Z, Beanie Sigel, Scarface – This Can’t Be Life
