i’ve always had an appreciation for songs that would forgo the whole “verse-hook-verse-hook” monotony and would just be all about the rapping. songs that were just an mc rhyming over a beat with no frills. it feels as if these kinds of songs were standard for most golden age albums made by any respectable mc of that era. ranging from album intro’s to full on 48 bar verses to album outro’s, these are all songs where the mc would go for theirs ,without worrying about when the hook was gonna drop, and simply show and prove.
