This one is a bit different. This track wasn’t officially released until a couple of years back via Stones Throw, so whatever issues Stezo had with his former employers was long buried by the time anyone heard this.

Here’s what Stezo’s producer Chris Lowe had to say about it when I spoke to him a while back:

Robbie: There was an old song from Stezo that came out a year ago where he had some words for EPMD. What’s the story there?

Chris Lowe: We was still friends, that was when we was younger. Stones Throw got a hold of that stuff years after and decided to put it out. We all pretty good now – Erick and Parrish are back on tour right now. I speak to Stezo and I did a record with Parrish on my last album.

Why am I pulling this out now? For starters, it has a quality flip of ‘Nautilus‘. Oh, and this shit is hilarious.

“Oh, and this shit is hilarious.”

Hilariously bad. The only thing that track had going for it was the sample.

Not a great track, but Stezo’s debut album is pretty dope. I *HATED* it when it came out–but in my golden years I’ve learned to appreciate it.

Who’s the guy doing the ad-libs? Is that Dooley-O?

Comment by Finally 01.09.09 @

Everything even remotely related to Dooley-O is classic.
