R.I.P Matt Doo
Via an infamous Bad Boy stan, here's a Craig Mack teaser tape featuring artwork by Matt Doo/Dooable Arts who was responsible for the covers of Stress: The Extinction Agenda and the wack-arse Company Flow album. Sadly, Matt killed himself in 1998, probably because a piece of his amazing artwork got used on an album with El-P rapping on it.
Puffy needn't have bothered releasing Craig Mack's album officially, because the only good songs from it were on here. Truth be told, I've always thought Mack was a good singles artist, from his debut as as MC EZ in 1988 with the Just Rhymin'/Get Retarded 12" to the Bad Boy classics (O.G version of Get Down > overrated Q-Tip remix) to Jockin' My Style from his otherwise atrocious 2nd album to his very early noughties indie 12" Brand New N*gga.
