Danger – Blahzay Blahzay

PF Cuttin cutting up ODB, Q-tip & Jeru da Damaja for the chorus, Out Loud with that rugged ass voice, plus sampling one of my personal all-time favorite forgotten soul tracks (Gwen McCrae’s Rockin Chair) it’s a no brainer, Blahzay Blahzay’s Danger is vintage New York rap at it’s finest.  Coming fully equipped with Philly Blunts, razors under the tongue, timberland boots and even a few cameos, The video for Danger serves as a time-capsule to 1995 Brooklyn.

No Fear O.G.C.

Originoo Gunn Clappaz debut album “Da Storm” dropped in 1996 “No Fear” was a standout track along with “Hurricane Starang” and “Gunn Clapp”  Below is the video for No Fear, be on the lookout for the Biggie impersonator and Rock from Heltah Skeltah pushing him off stage and snatching the Mic.  Classic Hip-Hop at its finest…

As an added bonus I had to add “Leflaur Leflah Eshkoshka” by the Fabb Five (Heltah Skeltah [Ruck + Rock] and O.G.C. [Starang Wondah+Louisville Slugga+Top Dogg]) this track can be found on Heltah Skeltahs 1st album “Nocturnal”

So many quotables on this track can’t even choose one, this is back when Rock was the king, BCC wore the crown for a minute can’t even front.  Yesh Yesh Yall!
