Love how that Roy Ayers-sounding sample creeps in to the body of the beat, very much like how them slug-like, alien life forms was invading Kryceck’s body in the third season of The X-Files.
Damn shame Beanie is heading to the big house. And for taxes!
His latest tape, This Time, was very good.
And if there is one rapper on this green earth who is criminally underrated, it’s Tony Yayo. Sure, he might have slurred his words and penned some sub-par rhymes during the G-Unit reign of the mid 00′s, but he always stayed humble, was the first New York rapper to show love to artists such as Lil Boosie, Gucci Mane, Lil B, and Danny Brown, and has twice as many good songs and twice as many guns as your favorite rapper.
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.)
