his verse on that one jedi mind tricks song is A++

heard that many years ago and started seeking out his other work. very talented, but i still like that verse more than any of his solo shit I've heard.

To early to mid 90's golden age hip-hop old fogeys and late 90's to early 00's backpackers, not at all. To the new breed that are finding out about him now, possibly. Either way, he's still a favorite of mine, but very intermittently.

Gift Of Gab absolutely smashed this track. I'm glad to see he's still doing his thing.

With that said, back to listening to some Count Basie.

I still have the source magazine that he was a "spotlight" in. He is nice 100%. Don't think he can be on Em's level. I wouldn't say not even close, because he does get on some real shit. But I think Em is in a lane of his own, and hard to compare others to.

RA is too underground to be underrated.

Cunt Renaissance was my introduction. He's dope though. I remember forgetting about him until a track he did with J-Live off a Wu compilation

Honestly, he is very underrated...Chicago wise...I went to one of his sets and I was pretty upset that not that many people showed up...I felt Chitown disrespected him. He put on an amazing show...and stayed for the fans...Love it..I tried to spar with the brotha but he put me in back on track...I honestly hopes he comes back to the Chi..
