Theory of the day: perennial Star Trak b-lister Fam-Lay is to Re-Up Gang what A-Mafia is to Dipset - a loosely-affiliated henchman rapper who dropped a string of great deep cuts between 2002 - 2006, got locked up for a few years, came home and dropped shit that's 400 degrees hotter than the rappers he once played second fiddle to, before the new music sadly dried up after 2012 bar guest verses on the most unlikeliest of songs.
Here's the proof in the form of a compilation. Fam-Lay has gotta be a top 5 rapper to have never dropped an album and his discography is so scattered that he's prime fodder for a best of comp. It begins with his debut solo track from The Clipse's Lord Willin' in 2002, and then concludes a decade later with that song's redux Clap Clap, which is the last track he released aptly enough. 11 of these 14 tracks are Neptunes productions, including his freestyle over their Nike commercial. Free to add No Time For No's, Step Back or any other Fam-Lay cuts which may have floated your own boat, but don't dare delete the Rock N' Roll remix because Lil' Flip should have gotten Hip Hop Quotable in The Source for that verse.
