A quick one tonight, but a great one. I was cruising to work this morning when the amazing Black Milk track Watch Em came on and knocked me sideways. We have already posted that beauty, but it got me thinking about other hip hop stuff and for some reason (maybe the lovely bass line led groove and great rapping) it reminded me of today's track.
Crosstown Beef by Medina Green. This track is from the great period of independent hip hop and was one of the best releases on th excellent Rawkus label. It features hip hop class in the form of Mos Def, some tremendous lyrics and a superb groove. Loved it at the time and still do. Quality hip hop.
