It was all a dream, I never read FACT magazine

"This shit shit janky
I can't even trust my aunty

70th Street Carlos - Wake Me Up
(From t'internet; 2018)

Back when we all discovered Cross Me nobody could have predicted that 70th Street Carlos would become the Biggie/Biz Markie of Beserker-Bounce, nor that he would go on to drop a Boom-Bap homage to 2Pac. It shouldn't work, but it does. Keep ya head up when you're in that water like Spencer Elden.

Bonus beats: the instrumental that changed everything or wot?

Windows is shutting down

"Got 2 hoes when I roll, I'm on go, on tiptoes
I re-up and reload, get 3 hoes and lay low
I'm too cold, I'm G-Code
I'm Mac, you windows"

Mouse On Tha Track - Let Me In (solo edit)
(From t'internet; 2018)

Cheers to Step Won, told you this shit would sound better as a Mouse On Tha Solo Track. When Mouse sez "I'm Mac, you Windows" it's fun to pretend that he's referencing the blood test scene in The Thing.

Don't ask me whattup 'cause it's insomnia with me

Joeazzy ft. Mouse On Tha Track - Let Me In
(From YouTube; 2018)

A song improved by the subtraction of Webbie and the addition of a Mouse verse on his U.N.Lil' Slim shit. It'll be improved again when I get Jack The Snipper to turn it into a Mouse On Tha Solo Track innit.

R.I.P to that $hizz guy who guested on + produced Foxx's 3rd Person

"$hizz be in Arkansas, $hizz be in Texas
$hizz don't know no dance moves but I always see him flexin'"

Foxx ft. $hizz - 3rd Person
(From Don't Work Don't Eat mixtape; 2012)

Smoke one for $hizzy, who died recently according to Frankie. A notable producer/rapper because 3rd Person is one of this decade's great lost Datpiff deep cuts, and Turk & Mel at TRILL ENT fucked up by not working it as a single back in 2012.

Yo money gripp, money gripp - you was a fool for this beat!

Rick, What's The Scoop?

Job's a good 'un by Stan Ipcus on this The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick anniversary piece. Particularly like Rick's take on Def Jam releasing Teenage Love as his first solo single, an A&R faux pas only vindicated by putting the Doug E. Fresh beatbox version of Treat Her Like A Prostitute on the B-side and the 12"s artwork. Shit, ya host's a fan of Teenage Love (no SPM/Afrika Bambaataa/Adam22), but it wasn't cut from the right cloth to be MC Ricky D's debut solo single.

Oh shit, Rick's just dropped a new-old song. He sez this one's from the 80s but I ain't buying that given it has the same sample as Group Home's Stupid MF's. Hmmmmm, not sure about this one in general - Ricky, Ricky, Ricky, can't you see, somehow your new song sounds like it was produced by fucking El-P.
