Started Scrapin’

BK’s Troy Ave does a little throwback stee for Flex. No bombs here…just bars…over a super-classic RZA production at that.

Troy Ave “Liquid Swords Freestyle”

Is it me, or does he sound just like a young (Murda) Ma$e (C.O.C./C.O.T.C.-era) mixed with a young 50? Okay, people used to say that Ma$e shit about 50…so forget the part about Curtis and just think back to McGruff‘s “Reppin’ Uptown” (a joint that floods my mind with only fond memories of raiding the crates at Rock & Soul for weekly bootlegs/white labels, while rockin’ tan fatigues with a garbage-bag-FAT dime of Hawaiian skunk or Chocolate in the cargo pocket, Vasque Skywalks, and a Polo rugby…with, of course, a Stretch & Bob tape in my walkman).
