Napoleon (bka Pudgee) – You Ain’t Know (ft. DMX, Ran Reed)
Rotary Connection – Turn Me On
Here’s a DMX verse you may not have been aware of as neither was I until a couple of years ago. He KILLS it unarguably and is the obvious stand-out on the record, but wow with the “ayo”/ “pause” worthy lines, lol. Pudgee and Ran Reed also deliver some decent to pretty good verses as well. According to a discogs user, this record was released by Pudgee himself probably around 97 or 98 but was most likely recorded in 95. Anyways, it seems that sample was made for Nick Wiz to flip and he pulled it off perfectly. What a banger!
Now I don’t even want to do Rotary Connection an injustice by trying to review their music in any way cause I’ll screw it up, so I’ll keep it simple. Buy their complete discography and you’re not only good for the spring and summer but you’ll find yourself revisiting a large amount of their songs for years to come.
