Making Moves With Troup

Always thought the grainy black & white Fresh Records press releases were the only photographic evidence of late '80's Craig Mack in his O.G Rap incarnation as MC EZ, so colour me surprised to find some multi-shade flava for ya eye. Yung Mack wearing what look like Troop high-tops circa the MC EZ & Troup era:


Bonus beats: Mack's Please Listen To My Demo remake has so much more pathos than the EPMD O.G. Erick & Parrish kept it philosophical like the Greek man Plato, but Mack made it spiritual/educational like the German word Bildungsroman.

(From The Wooden Horse 12" single; 1999/The Mack World Sessions album; 2017)
