Everybody lovin' it when Phonte rock the rhythm Five-nine, kinda stocky with him Wack MC's with no skills I gots to get 'em Got niggas screamin' 'No Doubt' like optimism Stop to give him a listen to the way that I be layin' tracks Easily, you to me is like DVD to beta max When I'm layin' back with ready, willin' and able raps Soft niggas don't wanna play with that -"Playin' To Lose"
.. How fitting a title for Election Night.
I dunno if I could make it up through all the media coverage, so gotta take my opportunity now to link some tracks to help you through the night.
North Cackalack natives Phonte & Big Pooh and (formally) producer 9th Wonder, collectively dubbed Little Brother, are mainstays on the in indie hip-hop circuit. Withunderground staples like2005's The Minstrel Show andlast year's Getback, LB has established itself, combining the ying of Pooh's straight-forward bounce with the yang of Phonte's lyrical dexterity and uplifting voice.
Thankfully, the rhyming duo decided to re-release 2006's mixtape Separate But Equal without the annoying DJ Drama drops. Here, I revive some of the most memorable jams like the Southern-fried Mos Def collabo "Let It Go," the verbal onslaught "Playin' To Lose" and the heartfelt "Passionflower."
Keep in mind The Minstrel Showreceived a 4.5 in The Source and XL rating in XXL Mag, dudes can downright spit. Real heads unite, Enjoy!
