Gotta get the Cream…
So there’s a bit of talk about Slaughterhouse, right? Joell and Royce are sick, Buddens has his moments and…err…Crooked I? As I was saying, who would you throw into a smoke-filled studio with a bag of Chinese take-out and a case of Becks? Four MC’s, one wildcard for guest shots. Go in.
Unkut Dot Com’s Roster:
The Headcrack Assassination Squad
Strong Island delivered us yet another unique wordsmith. A perfect combination of abstract wordplay and street science.
Sha Lumi brings together twenty years worth of Bridge influence into an action-packed sixteen every time, with the best ad-libs around.
Sean P is that dude. I actually through both the recent Bootcamp albums just to hear his verses. Tends to burn everyone else on the same track.
Every time Poet hits the booth, he wins. Nothing fancy, just bare-bones gutter shit with a a ton of heart from one of the most reliable troopers in the game.
Wop is a great rapper because he isn’t actually a rapper, doesn’t try too hard, he has a great flow and he keeps it simple, dummy. Plus it’s mostly the voice.
Romes Roams on the beat.
Gotty™ from TSS roster:
Nas – Why not?
The Beatnuts (circa late 90’s) – for the production & the fact that they like to fuck, drink beer & smoke some shit.
Ghostface Killah – No particular reason except that Ghost should always be included just to shake up the chemistry of any lineup of stellar emcees.
Ludacris – Because the only rapper who has unquestionably stolen more songs is Busta. While I’m not a huge fan of either, I’d rather have measured doses of Luda spitting precise rhymes over a throaty Busta “raow raow”-ing in the absence of coherent thought.
Bonus shot – Alfamega – w/a room full of inebriated rowdy rappers, somebody’s gotta keep’em in line. Maybe he can do a chorus or two. No verses please, Mega, thanks.
