(was it commonplace to have a shirtless dude line you up back then?)

Man, just like T3’s unfortunate bar last week, this pains me to do. This time we’re dealing with a legend, but even Big Daddy Kane isn’t immune to the WLotD. It’s [Hov] so mean & vicious [/Hov]

“Better bring witcha ya fire extinguisher/Listen, I love static, and I’m ready to cling to ya”
–Big Daddy Kane, “Don’t Touch Me (Throw Da Water On ‘Em) (Remix)”

And like I’ve mentioned before, one wack lyric doesn’t mean the song is bad. This remix to Busta’s single is one of the hottest joints out…even the gremlin kinda kills it.

Big L – “Unexpected Flava” (New Joint!)

Posted in Artists, Joints on June 4th, 2008 by Hyphen

Big L

With all due respect to my current favorite MC’s, Elzhi, Phonte, Wordsworth, Lupe, Kanye, Budden, Royce, etc., and the all-time greats like Jay, Nas, Andre, Common, Pac, Eminem, Biggie, Lauryn, and the rest…my favorite MC of all time is Lamont Coleman. Dude was way ahead of his time and his death was a tragedy. I still wonder what would have happened if he ended up signing with Jay-Z like he was bout to do. If you’re not familiar with him, read up real quick.

Most of L’s material has leaked to the net over the years, but last week an unheard joint named “Unexpected Flava” came out on the first volume Lord Finesse’s Rare Selections EP. Apparently this was recorded in 1991 and didn’t make the final cut on his classic debut, The Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous. Unexpected flava is right…
