For Doz Who Homaged?

"Sucker M.C with pockets so empty
Don't you know that a battle doesn't tempt me?
You talk smack but you & I know
You're on the first row at a Bizzie Boyz show"

Bizzie Boyz - For Those Who Slept
(From Droppin' It album; 1990)

Was it some sort of arch in-joke that Black Sheep recorded a song called For Doz That Slept when their first album sounds it was lowkey inspired by the Bizzie Boyz' For Those Who Slept? Probably accidental, yet weirdly coincidental.

The Bizzie Boyz era of Ski Beatz' career seems to be almost entirely forgotten nowadays despite the fact he was producing/rhyming solo on legit jams™ as far back as 1987. Maybe it's a form of punishment for For Doz Who Dabbled In Hip House?

might be an accident but worth noting that black sheep grew up in North Carolina

A Guy Called Gerald too.

Unfortunate excursions into Hip House aside, the Bizzie Boyz were so much better than Original Flavor.
