Moe Money, Richie Thumbs & Genovese – Body, Body

Body

I’ve got some of that good nostalgia for the 90’s kids today. The trio of Moe Money, Richie Thumbs and Genovese reunite for a new freestyle called “Body, Body” over the “Oochie Wally” instrumental. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Diehard Records, an independent label that all of these guys were signed to back during the rise of The LOX in the mid-90’s. Founded by Pay-Per-View co-creator Brian Cooper, Diehard is the entity behind such classic mixtape cuts as Kasino’s “Well, Well, Well” and Richie Thumbs’ “Thumbs Up”, both featuring The LOX, and “Genovese’s Thesis” featuring Styles P.

Check out the freestyle below and look for more from the Diehard alumni, including a documentary on the label, later this year.

Flex’s face throughout this whole display is comedy.

I’m also including the interview portion of the visit below. I would recap but I had to turn it off a few minutes in after he said “you feel me” literally four times during one sentence.
