Friday’s here, so you know what that means – our weekly dose of classic heat. Here’s what we’re serving up.
Capone-N-Noreaga, The War Report (1997)
It’s amazing that this album even saw the light of day. After Capone violated his parole and was locked down for awhile, partner NORE enlisted the help of his New York brethren and completed one of the most influential East Coast rap albums in the game. I haven’t listened to this one in awhile; it’s long past time for me to revisit it. Join me, you won’t be disappointed.
Tony Terry (1990)
Y’all know I’m a sucker for New Jack Swing. Tony Terry was the best of both of those words, supplying upbeat dance cuts and tender ballads. His self-titled sophomore album was his best work.
