  4. Stephen C. Says:

    good shit

  5. MaddenMaster Says:

    I’ve always been a fan of treach swagger on the Mic he got one of the coolest swaggers on the mic….

  6. eskay Says:

    Finally some sense comes out of Madden’s mouth. word up Treach was that dude

  7. dubble13 Says:

    Treach was “the dude” when OPP came out, but now people know him as the guy who got shot in the azz on Sopranos. Just like Lord Jamar was known – not for Brand Nubian – but for having an allergic reaction as “Supreme Allah” of Oz (and being on Sopranos also). Of course, with a new record coming out, things may change…

  8. DaReturn Says:

  12. KLO Says:

  13. KLO Says:

    Yo, Hip Hop needs more of these type of collabos!

  14. Joe 88 Says:

    Take a bow eskay. CLASSIC

  15. G-town G Says:

    Well appreciated my nigga eskay. But damn why ole girl kallin u out like that puttin ya last name on here? Lol

  16. G-town G Says:

    There probably wont be as many posts on here tho kuz young niggas dont know shit about this…
    Prove me wrong youngstas!

  17. Foekist Says:

    Mad Lions throat HAD to hurt after that. After seeing MC Lyte recently at the hip hop summit, she HAD to find the fountain of youth. KRS’ verse was wack. I’m remembering how I could NEVER understand really what Treach was EVER talking about (but NBN used to be the SHIT). I heard that CL Smooth was dead, is that true?

  18. Foekist Says:

    Speaking of CL Smooth, Game had a nice lil metaphor when he said “My CL so smooth, it should come with Pete Rock.” That was nice.

  19. p1 Says:

    yeah, too many of the heads my age and under dont know anything about shit like this. its sad, really.

    gza, meth, guru, qtip, phife, lyte, treach and krs all on stage together, though. damn. good looks, eskay.

  20. p1 Says:

    oh yeah, and another thing: this video answers any southerners complaining about “why would you say bring back NY?” this is that old newyork shit that the game is fucked up hurtin without.

  21. G-town G Says:

    Yea I felt that Game verse too that was fly

  22. eskay Says:

    ok, guys get ready cuz Bugsy and Luis are gonna have a field day with my next post. don’t say I didn’t warn you.

  23. Luis Says:

    saw this last week but it’s still cool!

  24. Luis Says:

    DAMN I STILL have the tommy hilfiger shirt that q-tip was rocking…..in white also, damn hilfiger was the shit!!!!

  25. cklhiphop Says:

    wow… nice… good ol day…

    hahah… Luis… yeah man… hilfiger was the shit to rock at that time… i spent tons of money on them…
