    [Verse 1: Grand Puba]
    I hit a beat and swing a note as if my name was David Ruffin
    Quick to toast an MC just like an English muffin
    Don't worry about a thing because the Puba's never bluffing
    I gets headaches from the wack, so then I take a Bufferin and I max
    I wait until the opportune time and then I tax but should I max?
    Now they say sinning is for sinners so I guess I'm not a sinner
    Beginning's for beginners so I guess I'm no beginner
    This is how I spark it, puts money in my pocket
    When it comes to having pleasure I gets hard as a rocket
    MC Grand Pu coming through all the residue
    The songs remain classics dating back to the Babalu
    My boys I call 'em Akh, the foes I let 'em jock
    And I can think of many episodes I swung in Lincoln Park
    No I'm not a phony and I got a tenderoni
    Love the way she is - not too fat, not too bony
    Don't drink Sanka, won't sink like a tanker
    Knock the boots off a skirt in Casablanca and I thank her
    Some rappers stink like Englebert Humperdinck
    Better yet Dick Cavett, I got a bad habit
    Similar to the girl on She's Gotta Have It
    I think with the brain and I whip behind the zipper
    I'm living kinda good similar to Jack Tripper
    A landlord named Roper did a show at the Copa
    When I'm finished with this I'll be paid like Oprah
    So if honey wants to act fly
    I'll just play like Guy and I'm (saying, "bye, bye, dumb bitch!")
    Stick out your thumb and hitch
    Cause you've been cut off like a light switch
    See I'm programmed to slam, winter, summer, spring or fall
    Before I do a show I get some kicks out the mall
    Then I get my gear and I give Trev a call
    Cause he works in the barbershop, right behind the mall
    Other rappers tried to rob me but you know they got did
    To put it blunt, honey I shrunk the kids
    So bookers back off break North here comes the regulator
    Betcha that you find none greater

    [Verse 2: Sadat X]
    On file is a style, that's why you caught a clip
    My suitcases is packed and I'm going on a trip
    To Mic-a-delphia I go for self and still be slamming
    The school bell is ringing and I caught somebody cramming
    For the test, oh yes, my study guide was thick
    I cut you with my verbal, didn't hurt you just a nick
    Off your face, don't play possum watch me and I'll blossom
    Like a rose and get some new clothes
    And a fresh fade from Rob
    Jamar on the phone and now the Now Rule Mob
    The come one, come all, we about to get hectic
    If my crew don't get in, then the X makes a exit
    To the rear, I'm outta here, don't front on my brothers
    I take care of them before I take care of others
    The wood bats is doomed, in the 90's it's aluminum
    Step to the stage with a mic and I'm doing 'em something awful
    I'm a citizen and I'm lawful
    I go to Hunter in the fall, rip the policemen's ball
    I got the power to make a car stall
    I get some drinks from Glackens, and when the crowd slackens
    I stop drinking and then I start thinking about
    Days in the past when Derek X was last
    But now I'm on the top, damn, news travels fast
    Cause I'm like that, they can't see this
    Read my book, it contains many pieces of verses
    I took the time to delete all the curses
    So moms reach deep in your purses
    And buy me, take me home and try me and do me well

    [Verse 3: Lord Jamar]
    Well, while I reign rhymes pour
    You suck it up like a straw and jump on the dance floor
    Cause every time I step in a jam
    I make like a door and slam
    But then girls try to turn my knob cause I'm a heart throb
    I guess it's just a hazard that comes with the job
    Cause every time I rock a rhyme that shows Jamar is intellectual
    Girls want to get sexual
    Well I guess I have to cope with being so dope
    You want to be me, but can't see me with a telescope
    You seek and search but still you can't find
    You're weak and it hurts to be deaf, dumb and blind
    A supreme mind will take you out of your paralysis
    I grip the mic so tight I get callouses
    And your analysis is that the Lord
    Whips rhymes into shape with a mic cord
    I do it good cause I'm a positive black man
    Eating up suckers as if I was PacMan
    Not a Dapper Dan fan, I stay casual
    To rock like the J it comes gradual
    You got to know the ledge to wise the dumb
    And understand your culture of freedom
    Power equally with the Gods
    So you can build and born your cipher
    All your life you must teach truth
    Of the true and living God, not a mystery spook
    And when you do that, pursue that goal
    Which made the student enroll and only then you'll prosper

  • Craig Mack - Making Moves With Puff (1994) | Official Video (R.I.P.)
    Rest In Peace Craig Mack (May 10, 1971 – March 12, 2018)

    From the album "Project: Funk Da World" Produced by Rashad Smith

    Bad Boy Entertainment, 1994.

    Craig Mack was an American rapper who gained fame on Puff Daddy's Bad Boy Entertainment record label in the 1990s. Although his first single was released under the name MC EZ in 1988, he is best known for his 1994 hit single "Flava In Ya Ear", which was released under his real name. The remix of the single was the breakout appearance of The Notorious B.I.G., as well as one of the first solo appearances by Busta Rhymes. The success of The Notorious B.I.G.'s debut album Ready to Die overshadowed Mack's early success on the Bad Boy label.

    Although Puff Daddy mentioned in a 1994 interview on MTV's Yo! MTV Raps that he was working with Mack on his second album, which was to be released sometime in January the following year, this proved to not be the case. Present at that interview (which also included The Notorious B.I.G.), Mack himself appeared puzzled by the statement. Mack did release a second album in 1997, but none of the singles charted and Mack was unable to repeat his success. In an interview, Biggie Smalls says he appeared on the remix of "Flava In Ya Ear" for political reasons for Puffy. In 2002, Mack would appear in the music video for Puffy's single "I Need a Girl (Part One)".

    After a few attempts to be successful in the early-2000s, it was said that Mack was working on his third studio album in 2002, which was set to be release in 2007. The single "Mack Tonight" was released for the album in 2006. Mack then disappeared in the hip-hop industry until in 2012 a video was leaked on YouTube, saying he had joined a cult, surprising family members and fans. As of 2012, Mack resides in the Overcomer Ministry located in Walterboro, South Carolina. The Overcomer Ministry's YouTube channel released a video titled "Craig Mack Testimony" on May 22, 2016, although recorded the previous day, in which Craig Mack appears in the middle of the church to rap about conspiracy and Christianity through a remix of "When God Comes". The last part of the video entails a full version of the song with better production quality and a beat. The song expresses the cult's beliefs, that Craig plans to stay in the cult, and that he respects no one who wants him to come back to mainstream rapping. The song also mentions that he "moved [his] family to South Carolina", which doesn't align with other reports expressing the family's concerns for his choices. Still, Craig believes that he was doing "wickedness" in New York, and "righteousness" in South Carolina.

    On November 26, 2012, Beazylife Distribution released a new Craig Mack mixtape, 'Operation Why2K? – Hosted by B-Eazy', through

    In 2017, "The Mack World Sessions" was released.

    Mack died on March 12, 2018 from heart failure at a hospital near his home at Walterboro, S.C. According to DJ Scratch he was ill for some time before his passing and was prepared for a grim outcome.

    and another one :~

    Craig Mack, 46, the legendary Bad Boy artist who burst onto the national stage in 1994 with that “Flava in Ya Ear,” died Monday night at a hospital near his Walterboro, S.C., home, reportedly of heart failure.
    He was 46 years old.Alvin Toney, Mack’s producer, confirmed Mack’s death to the New York Daily News.“God bless my friend. He was a good friend of mine,” Toney said. “He was prepared for whatever comes, to go home to the Lord. He was prepared to do that. He wasn’t scared. He was ready.”Outstream Video 00:0000:00Mack’s gritty, New York growl added depth to the Bad Boy roster, and he will forever be remembered as one of the architects of the golden age of hip-hop with legendary freestyles and hypnotic flow.The “Flava in Ya Ear” remix is a hip-hop classic, perhaps most notably for the Notorious B.I.G.’s bars: “Niggas is mad I get more butts than ashtrays,” and “You mad ’cause my style you admirin’, don’t be mad, UPS is hiring.”But the streets always had love for Craig Mack, too—as did the charts.Mack was one of the first artists signed to Diddy’s Bad Boy label, and arguably put the whole squad on the map. His debut album, Project: Funk da World peaked at No. 21 on the U.S. charts, according to the Houston Chronicle. 

    DJ Funkmaster Flex was one of the first to share the tragic news on social media, posting a picture of Mack with the Notorious B.I.G., who was killed 21 years ago.

  • Gravediggaz Feat. Shabazz The Disciple & Killah Priest - Diary Of A Madman (...
    From the album "6 Feet Deep" Produced By RNS & Prince Paul

    Gee Street, 1994.

    Gravediggaz is an American hip hop group from New York City, known for its dark sense of humor and abrasive, menacing soundscapes. The group was formed in 1991, bringing together Prince Paul (The Undertaker), Frukwan (The Gatekeeper), Poetic (The Grym Reaper) and RZA (The RZArector). It came about largely due to the efforts of Prince Paul. The group pioneered the small hip-hop subgenre of horrorcore.

    The group's first album was originally to be titled Niggamortis; however, this potentially risqué title was changed to 6 Feet Deep for the American market (European versions of the album retained the original title, and also included the bonus track "Pass the Shovel"); it was released on August 9, 1994. The four members adopted Gravedigga alter egos for their work with the group: RZA became The RZArector, Poetic became The Grym Reaper, Prince Paul became The Undertaker and Frukwan became The Gatekeeper. In 1995, the three rapping members (without Prince Paul) released a collaborative EP titled "The Hell EP" with UK trip hop artist Tricky.

    The second full-length Gravediggaz album The Pick, the Sickle and the Shovel was less humorous, dealing more with social and political issues; it also used calmer and more conventional production. Prince Paul played a considerably smaller role in the making of this album, with many of the production duties now taken care of by RZA and his Wu-Tang affiliates (including True Master and 4th Disciple).

    A bootleg Gravediggaz album surfaced in 1998, called Scenes From The Graveyard. It featured seven unreleased tracks plus some remixes from the first two albums.

    Around 2000, Gravediggaz recruited DJ Diamond J. Poetic died of colon cancer in July 2001. Frukwan stated in an interview not long after Poetic's death that a new album using leftover Poetic material would be released. Nightmare in A-Minor, the third official album for Gravediggaz, came out in 2001; it featured two of the original members, Poetic and Frukwan. This album was their darkest work yet, including many references to Poetic's struggle with cancer, as well as apocalyptic themes to do with the teachings of the Five Percent Nation. Although RZA did not take part in the album, some Wu-Tang Clan affiliates such as 4th Disciple, True Master and Beretta 9 were involved. The album was mostly produced by Poetic and Frukwan. A different version of the album (minus the song "Better Wake Up") was released in 2002, for which some of the tracks created by Poetic were replaced or altered.

    In 2003 Frukwan released his debut solo album, Life. The fourth Gravediggaz album 6 Feet Under was released in 2004 by Cleopatra Records and featured songs from Nightmare in A-Minor and Life. According to Frukwan, he had nothing to do with the release and claimed that song titles were changed without permission, making it an unauthorized release.

    In 2010, Gravediggaz recorded a new song, "2 More Cups of Blood". In 2011, it was announced that the group had been recording new tracks involving Shabazz The Disciple & Killah Priest.

    [Hook x2]
    All around the world, same song
    All all around the world same song
    [Shock G]
    I came for the party to get naughty, get my rocks on
    Eat popcorn, watch you move your body to the pop song
    That I'm singing, dinga-linging, funky beats ringing
    Everybody's swinging in the place
    As I kick the J-A-Z-Z-Y style
    R&B mixing it with the hip hop swing beat
    Champagne in my hand, it won't be long till I'm gone
    It's just the same old song
    [Humpty Hump]
    It's just a freestyle, meanwhile, we keep the beat kickin
    Sweat dripping, girlies in the limo eatin chicken
    Oops don't get the grease on your pantyhose
    I love ya Rover, move over, I gotta blow my nose
    Sneezing, but still I'm pleasin to all the slimmies
    Pull out my jimmie, time to get busy wit a Jenny
    If it's good and plenty, dont you know
    There I go, there I go, there I go
    But I dont go nowhere without my jim hat
    If I'm rapping, cause she's clapping
    Then I'm strapping cause I'm smarter than that
    Then girlie maybe we can get along
    Cutie after cutie, it's just the same old song
    [Hook x3]
    [Money B]
    Money B, the freaky deaky, the sqeaky meaky up and down
    As a matter of fact ill be right back I gotta take a leak
    So I'm drainin entertainin, but I got fame
    And the bases I touch too much for me tryin to be namin
    Aiyyo, you saw me on cable and grinned
    I busted in and I was Gone With The Wind
    Clark Gable back in Oakland its the same old song
    Sport these shorties, same freckles and hat
    Drinkin the same 40's
    [Humpty Hump]
    Hypothetical, political, lyrical, miracle whip
    Just like butter, my rhymes are legit
    Cause I'm the humpty. Not humpty dumpty, but humpty hump
    Here a hump, there a hump, everywhere a hump
    [Shock G]
    Ah shut up and just listen
    Not dissin dont get me wrong
    But to me its just the same old song
    So just watch, my name is Shock, and I like to rock
    And you can't stop this
    2Pac go ahead and rock this
    Now I clown around when I hang around with the Underground
    Girls used to frown, say I'm down, when I come around
    Gas me and when they pass me they use to diss me
    Harrass me, but now they ask me if they can kiss me
    Get some fame, people change, wanna live they life high
    Same song, can't go wrong, if I play the nice guy
    (Claimin' fame, must have changed, now that we became strong)
    I remain, still the same (why Tu'?) cause it's the same song

Although the album included many good tracks, including the hit singles "Where'z Da' Party At?" and "Keep It Real" it's success was limited.

  • Pharoahe Monch - The Light (1999) | Official Video
    From the album "Internal Affairs" Produced by Diamond D

    Rawkus Records, 1999.

    Troy Donald Jamerson (born October 31, 1972), better known by his stage name Pharoahe Monch, is an American rapper from Queens, New York. He is known for his complex lyrics, complex delivery, and internal and multisyllabic rhyme schemes.

    Monch released three albums as part of the rap duo Organized Konfusion with partner Prince Poetry: The self-titled Organized Konfusion, Stress: The Extinction Agenda and The Equinox. The duo handled a large amount of production on these albums themselves. All albums received positive critical reviews, but moderate sales. As a result, the duo split up after recording their final album The Equinox in 1997. Prince Poetry has since denied the possibility of an Organized Konfusion reunion.

    Pharoahe Monch then signed to Rawkus Records, an indie label. After making several guest appearances on albums like the best-selling Rawkus compilation Soundbombing II, Monch's much-hyped debut, Internal Affairs was released in 1999. The first single of the album, "Simon Says", became a hit single, peaking at No. 97 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was also featured in the 2000 cinematic releases Charlie's Angels and Boiler Room. Despite its success, the song caused controversy when Monch was later sued for the song's use of a sample from Akira Ifukube's Gojira Tai Mosura in the hook. The uncleared sample use caused a halting in his album's distribution.

    After Internal Affairs and the controversy over its hit song, Pharoahe would not release another solo project for several years. He did still make some songs and guest appearances however. In 2000 he featured with Mos Def and Nate Dogg on the hit song "Oh No" from the Rawkus compilation record Lyricist Lounge 2. He contributed the song "Fuck You" to the Training Day soundtrack in 2001, and rapped the theme song to Madden NFL 2002. He also provided vocals on the track "Last Dayz" on the 2001 Adam F Album Kaos: The Anti-Acoustic Warfare and remixes of the track on the follow-up Drum & Bass Warfare, released the following year. In 2003 Pharoahe released his final single through Rawkus Records, "Agent Orange", a war inspired song which revisited the 1991 Organized Konfusion track "Releasing Hypnotical Gases".

    Rowdy Records, 1993.

    Illegal was a short-lived hip hop duo composed of Jamal Phillips (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) and Malik Edwards (Holly Hill, South Carolina) that was signed to Rowdy Records. The duo was known to be affiliated with the hip-hop crew Hit Squad, made their debut with the album "The Untold Truth" released in 1993, which became a minor success, peaking at #119 on the Billboard 200 and #19 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. Several tracks on the album, including its two singles "Head or Gut" and "We Getz Busy" were diss songs directly aimed at rivals Kris Kross and Da Youngstas.
    The duo virtually disappeared from the public eye until 1995, when it teamed with Too Short on the song "Thangs Change" after which the group disbanded.
    Jamal Phillips would later release his debut solo album "Last Chance, No Breaks" in 1995 on Rowdy Records. Malik released one single for Rowdy Records titled "Malik Goes On" but his debut album was shelved. He worked with Monica on "Miss Thang" and later with his cousin Snoop Dogg on "Doggystyle", Warren G on "Regulate... G-Funk Era", "Take a Look Over Your Shoulder" and Tha Dogg Pound on "Dogg Food" and finally released his debut album in 2005 "The Game Needs Me".

    "Back in the Day" was the third and final single released from Illegal's debut album, The Untold Truth. It was written by members Jamal and Malik, each detailing their hardships growing up. The song peaked at 80 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks and 21 on the Hot Rap Singles and was the last release from Illegal.
