2. Consequence - Rock N Roll (1997)
3. Blahzay Blahzay - Ice Grillz (2000)
4. B-1 ft. Large Professor - Put Yo' Self In My Place (2000)
5. Ayatollah ft. Rakim - A Cold Feeling (2002)
1. Phil Blunts' Yonkers classic On The Attack which should be a proper New York classic. N.Y drama-core that's so good it can make me overlook Phil's very #problematic line about rape.
2. Had a soft spot for Consequence ever since I heard Rock N Roll. Alongside ATCQ's The Jam, this is one of the best examples of late 90s clip-clop Dilla production imho.
3. Not a lotta people know this, but the second best song Blahzay Blahzay & P.F. Cuttin' ever recorded is Ice Grillz. Some mean-muggin' Brooklyn winter warz Rap.
4. B-1 is best known for his guest spots on Kool G. Rap's 4, 5, 6 album and his two singles on Rawkus Records, but for Q.B connoisseurs his true Dunn-Rap hall of fame tune is Put Yo' Self In My Place.
5. There were only two good things to come from Rakim's tenure with Aftermath Records: the Truth Hurts song he guested on and the Ayatollah banger A Cold Feeling. Supposedly recorded for The Wash soundtrack, it woulda sounded perfect on Kay Slay's first compilation.
Forgotten just how dope that Blahzay Blahzay track is.
Addiction was one of my fave jams during that time when everybody seemed to sampling world music.
Cheers for the link!
Never forget Erick Sermon & Redman's React and Timbaland & Magoo's Indian Flute.
Punjabi MC and Jay-Z too lol.
D'oh! Meant Addicted.
Think Guru's Destiny Is Calling and East Flatbush Project's Tried By Twelve were the earliest examples I heard of rap music going Andy Kershaw.
😆 Kershaw-core should definitely be the official name.
Coldcut's Paid In Full remix gotta be the genesis.
B-1 should have dropped an album.
I quite like the fact that he only has a handful of singles to his name.
