Affirmative Action – Cormega & Az

In Queens where my drugs be, I rock Guess jeans and Rugby’s

Saturday night (3-13-2010) up here in Massachusetts was a wild one weather wise, Nor’Easter status to say the least.  Despite the Hurricane like winds Scrilla, Hustle Womens and myself decided to brave the elements and take the 1 hour trek out to Cambridge to check out a Cormega & Az show at the Middle East.  Of course all the footage that I captured on my blackberry is muffled, luckily I was able to hunt down some clips from the night courtesy of Bostonianz 617.  Although most of the evening is fuzzy to me (haze & 16oz pabst has that effect) I do remember it was a  dope show and both of the artists showed off their respective catalogues, touching on classic albums like It Was Written, Stillmatic, The Testament, The Realness, Doe or Die, 9 Lives, Pieces of a Man, Aziatic The Firm Album.Although Cormega was later replaced in The Firm by Nas’ then protegé Nature, Cormega is still recognized as one of The Firm’s founding members along with Foxy Brown, Nas & Az.  Below is Affirmative Action from It Was Written & the Affirmative Action Remix which was the B-Side to Nas’ Street Dreams back in 97.Affirmative Action – Nas Feat.

World Famous – Half-A-Mill

Half-A-Mill released Da Hustle Don’t Stop back in 2002, the album features many hits but World Famous has been and still is my ish.  It borrows the same beat and Half-A-Millions verse from the slept on classic Firm Biz Remix – Half-A-Mill, Nature, Az, Foxy Brown & Nas.  Unfortunately Milliato was shot dead in his Brooklyn home in 2003 and never fully got to see the fruits of his own labor.

“Illuminati want my mind, soul and my body. Secret society, tryin to keep they eye on me.”  – Prodigy

In 1995, LL Cool J released one of his biggest albums Mr. Smith.  The LP’s  double platinum success was due to the smash hits Loungin with/ Total, Doin It w/ LeShaun, Hey Lover w/ Boyz 2 Men plus most of the production being handled by Rashad Smith & The Trackmasters.  The Mr. Smith album wasn’t all bubble gum however, LL assembled Representatives from some of NY’s finest crews [Fat Joe (Terror Squad), Keith Murray(Def Squad/L.O.D.), Prodigy(Mobb Deep) & Foxy Brown(The Firm)] for the remix to his controversial record I Shot Ya.  Directed by Hype Williams, rumors swirling of Keith Murray tossing Prodigy around at the video shoot & loads of cameos this is a classic Hip-Hop video from a better era.
