Stretch or Bob announced that they had received a certain demo in the mail. They played the first verse of said demo, check it out-
Lo Down – Mask Of The Phantom
Well, this verse sounded a little too familiar to the record breaking duo. It rang such a resounding bell because it was the same exact verse Tame One had kicked in a freestyle on their show in the past. They just happened to have that freestyle on hand and immediately played it after that demo. Peep it-
Tame One Freestyle
Yep. Same exact verse. I guess if this happened now a days, it wouldn’t mean anything. But we all know that biting, especially straight lyric jacking, was not cool back then. And it still isn’t, in our book, right?
I don’t remember what exactly ensued after this was exposed, but I don’t remember ever seeing many records by the Lo Down crew. It’s a shame, too, they had some pretty good beats. Shouldn’t have bit.
Download includes full Lo Down song and full Artifacts freestyle.
Thanks to Mad Human at the T.R.O.Y. forum for uploading the Lo Down EP in our definitive Ill EPs thread. Over a 100 EPs and counting, join in and add on.
Thanks to Roy Johnson for the Artifacts freestyle. I’m pretty sure that’s who posted it. If not, claim your props in the comments.
And congratulations to Bobbito for getting his name on the Pro-Keds Royal Flash sneakers.
