M.O.P. - "Crazy" feat. Termanology (Bonus)

The duo of Mash Out Posse, composed of Billy Danze and Lil' Fame, has been around since 1992 and, along with Wu-Tang Clan and Geto Boys, helped to found the hardcore hip hop scene (which directly led the the horrorcore scene of the likes of Jedi Mind Tricks and AOTP).  The Brooklyn emcees bring an energy to each and every bar that it rivaled by few rappers and have remained hardcore and uncompromising despite mainstream success.  M.O.P. garnered underground respect with their debut 1993 single "How About Some Hardcore?" and their first three albums, but it was with their fourth album, Warriorz (2000), featuring the hit single "Ante Up" (which generated a popular remix with Busta Rhymes) that the group began it's rise to prominence.

In 2002, the group signed to Roc-A-Fella and recorded a remix of "U Don't Know" that is one of my favorite Jay-Z songs of all time.  When Dame Dash and Shawn Carter split, M.O.P. was put in an awkward position as Dame retained their services.  They ended up leaving Dash in May of 2005.  This song is off of their upcoming album The Foundation (dropping September 15th), an album which I've been looking forward to for a while now. I've also included the "U Don't Know Remix" off of Jay's The Blueprint2: The Gift & The Curse and the promo single for Slaughterhouse's debut album, "Woodstock Hood Hop." Prepare yourself. The hardcore returns September 15th.

Peace, Love, & Hardcore,

"Crazy" (feat. Termanology)
