Latee Compilation

Latee is the most gifted MC to ever come out of the Flavor Unit, but unfortunately, he never released a full-length LP. In late 2008, a Latee demo tape surfaced on ebay, and it ended up selling for $100. Needless to say, after hearing the mp3 snippets, the demos shot up to the very top of my want list. Make sure to check the divshare audio samples for the “$100 Auction Demo Tape” mp3.

I originally put this compilation together about a year ago, but since then, I added a Tim Westwood freestyle that was recently uploaded by one of our many great posters in the TROY Forum (click the link for the precise thread, props to thewool). I also discovered that there was an alternate version of “Latee Rocks Da Bells”, and of course, I added the $100 demo snippets. If you have anything to add, please hit us up in the comments section.

    "If tricks are for kids, then let it be known I don't play.
    Other rappers, they went slip, sliding away."

    I'm a huge fan of the og Flavor Unit. Latee being my favorite, followed by Chill Rob G, and Lakim Shabazz.
    Another (lost in the faggot stirred industry sauce) Jersey crew that never got their proper shine.
    We always say this, but imagine if Latee got that album deal instead of friggin' Apache?!!
    Would have been amazing and who knows where it could have gone from there. I mean, 45 King and Latifah sure went places, you know?

    Thanks for this, Roy.
