One of my favourite grime numbers remixed by a 14 year old kid! My missus maintains it sounds like it was made by a 14 year old but what does she know…. This is by Mossmade Beatz and taken from ‘A Bag Of Myths Vol 2’ by DJ Spooky. Available for free (legally) from DJ Spooky.
Mobb Deep are a bit of an obsession for me. I read Prodigy’s book as soon as it came out; on hardback son! (what a bizarre sentence). I’d recommend it to anyone obsessed with Mobb Deep or just a passing interest in that era of hip hip. The stories about them running wild in clubs around NY are crazy, from a different galaxy than Watch The Throne or Lil’ Wayne. Maybe not that far...
I’ve been getting into a lot of this stuff this week. It weird that I’ve gone from a hardline east coast hip hop only kid to being old as dirt and loving this stuff. Maybe when i’m a pensioner it’ll be strictly manufactured pop?
