Grand Puba was one of the best to ever do it at his peak, despite seeming to operate on cruise control for his solo projects in comparison to the work he put into the Masters of Ceremony and Brand Nubian albums. Here are six videos of the Puba Maxwell repping to the fullest.
Masters of Ceremony – “Sexy”
Dapper Dan and Shirt Kings on smash, a swimsuit beauty contest plus one of Puba’s many skinz playing the DMX. What more could you ask for?
Brand Nubian – “All For One”
Maxwell was arguably the greatest MC on the planet when this album dropped.
Mary J. Blige feat. Grand Puba – “What’s The 411″ [Live]
Mary with her Cross Color architecture on 1,000 and Puba repping that Uptown Summer swag like what! Also, the best rap and sanging song of all time.
Heavy D feat. Kool G Rap, Grand Puba, CL Smooth, Big Daddy Kane and Q-Tip – “Don’t Curse”
Puba was at the height of his powers here, as he steals the show from the Juice Crew gods with ease. SMH at Kane’s struggle Prince attire.
Strictly Roots feat, Fat Joe and Grand Puba – “Begs No Friends” [Remix]
The Grand Man switches up for a suitably rugged skully and gold front combo for this trip to the BX, and adds some quality anti-cracker talk into the mix as well.
Grand Puba – “360″ [Live]
Superior In Living Color performance with a rare demonstration of someone sporting a backpack while rapping with no cause for regret.
