Ten Great Flavor Unit Songs

Got a major Flavor Unit interview ready to drop soon, so I’m going in extra deep (pause) on their extensive catalog. Here are ten of sure shots from the greatest collection of MC’s that New Jersey ever produced.

Latee – “This Cut’s Got Flavor”

The blueprint of the Flavor U. Raw rap perfection.

The 45 King feat. Markey Fresh – “The King Is Here”

The late, great Markey Fresh reps the 45 King like a trooper on this Kool DJ Red Alert favorite.

Double J – “Cannibal Town”

The Hitman’s debut, self released single still deliver’s today. Harmonica rap before the Ghetto Boys.

Chill Rob G – “Chillin'”

The lyrical genius at his best. The Chill One covers a wide range of topics over a rolling break.

Lakim Shabazz – “Style Is Free”

The Voice of Power contributed this gem for the Rhythmical Madness album. Louie Louie on the beat.

Latee feat. The 45 King – “Puttin’ On The Hits”

45 King didn’t write his raps, but he sure as fux knew how to say ’em.

Lord Ali Ba-Ski – “Crunch Time”

The Human Body Chart also played bodyguard for Monie and Latifah.

The Flavor Unit Assassination Squad – “Flavor Unit Assassination Squad”

Best posse cut of all-time. Sorry Juice Crew.

Queen Latifah feat. The 45 King – “A King and Queen Creation”

Written by Lakim and Ali Ba-Ski, the final result is incredible.

Naughty By Nature feat. Lakim Shabazz and Apache – “1,2,3”

The last addition to the original squad, the great Apache shows and proves in fine style.

201/973, stand up!!! Should have had Lakim’s “All True And Living”. One of the illest horn breaks ever…

A lot of dope cuts here, especially “Chillin'” and “1,2,3”. I’m with oska, All True is dope, I’d also nominate Latee’s “Brainstorm” and Lord Alibaski’s “Top Gun”.

Looking forward to the Lakim Shabazz interview!
