I’ve decided to dedicate the rest of this week to the god Sha Lumi, since he was criminally under-appreciated while was here. To set things off as we celebrate how he put it down, here are ten of my favorite Killa Sha solo moments…
Hyper back-ups + knowledge dropped + god-body status + ill beat + fat girl reference = The perfect Sha song.
‘Acknowledge The Vet’
Lumi dominates the mic over a quality J-Love beat.
Twist some sour and pour a Jameson to this one. That vocal sample is fuckin’ nuts.
‘Black Eminem Freestyle’
A show-and-prove session from the hilariously-titled Black Eminem mixtape.
‘Art of War’
One of the highlight’s of the superior HNIO mixtape.
‘Do My Thang’
A cut from Lakey‘s 41st Side compilation. You can’t lose with the ‘Marley Scratch’ drums.
Sha did this over Masta Killa‘s beat for a remix that never got an official release for one reason or another.
‘Stand and Cheer’
A dope J-Love mixtape exclusive.
A Marley Marl production from their aborted album project.
The Prince AD riffs over the fake Nas/Jay-Z colab track from the Da Billy Colez Story mixtape.
