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.

And he was killing them old freestyles.

… these rappers is talking about bricks in their rhymes, you never did shit but some Mickey Mouse crimes.

AR-AB (inte att förväxla med Soulja Boys kompis A-Rab) är nere med Meek Mill, en av de många gatutalanger som signat med Maybach Music de senaste året.

Detta är dock ganska långt från Maybach Music-soundet.

Icke-flashigt. Hetsig trumprogrammering och sträva Philadelphia-raps.

Det här är skäggmusik som jag kan fuxxa med.

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
