Late pass!

"Playas don't change, the game get deeper
In a minute they gon' come out with the invisible beeper
Or one you can wear in your ear that only playa's hear
Get a beep then you outta there
On the highway straight speedin'
Tryna get away so ya gurl won't catch you cheatin'"

Father Dom - Tell Your Baby Mama Leave Me Alone (video mix)
(O.G mix from Oaktown's Finest album; 1997)

Only familiar with Father Dom from his appearances on Too $hort tracks and his Rumors remake until I checked out the latest Hotbox compilation. Turns out that he's the best Dom since Passantino because the father's got more slaps than Janine Butcher's Eastenders career.

You need to check his album Bombay if you haven't already - - it's a solid project front to back.

Id a similar revelation w this video a few yrs ago after peter rosenberg was dismissive of him in his Too Short interview so ipsco facto any rapper rosenberg doesnt get is prob class.

Short dawgs gotta have one of the most consistent weedcarrier hit rates - 4 Tay, Spice 1, Ant Banks, Goldy, Mc Pooh

Oaktown Finest is definitely a minor Bay classic.

Not sure I would classify Spice-1 or 4-Tay as weed carriers, they had a pretty good carreers of their own, especially Spice. Even Ant Banks as a producer did a lot of cool stuff.

Ant Banks “Time is Tickin’” is a great song. shouts out to Noz for putting me onto it.
